Quick flaky pizza


Quick flaky pizza
This pizza with a difference has a thin puff-pastry base instead the traditional dough.

Apart from this small refinement, the basic elements you would expect are all there: tomato sauce, a variety of toppings and fresh basil leaves.

Bake right away in a really hot oven, and near the bottom of the oven rather than in the middle.

As soon as the pizza is cooked, take it out of the oven, drizzle a little Herb olive oil over and scatter a few fresh basil leaves on top.

Serve immediately.
Remarks
This is typically something to make after a pizza party: if you have leftover ingredients from your last batch of pizzas, but no more dough and really can't face making any more, a bit of puff pastry and you're good to go.
Keeping
Should be eaten immediately.

Passion fruit jellies
Usually to make fruit jellies or (fruit "paste"), it's like jam but you need to cook fruit pulp and sugar much longer. Unfortunately, this long cooking is bad for both vitamins and flavour. In this recipe we use a special jam gelling agent, to reduce cooking time as much as possible .
