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.
