Pastry Pizza – The meal of teens everywhere

Tonight I used up the leftover chicken to make pastry pizza, basically I was to lazy to make anything particularly healthy and the teen loves it, the younger one won’t eat it but he won’t eat anything (sigh).

So to make this super easy gourmet (who am I trying to kid?) delight you need

  • A pack of ready roll puff pastry
  • Leftover cooked chicken
  • Red Pesto
  • Tinned grilled peppers
  • A ball of mozzarella

Leave the puff pastry on the side to get to room temperature and then unroll it, I find leaving it until you have forgotten about it and then making the pastry pizza in a panic as everything else is already cooked is just about the right amount of time, I guess its ten to fifteen minutes.

Spread the red pesto on the pastry to about the thickness of the tommy puree you get on pizza, then add the left over chicken, peppers and cheese, and any other toppings you feel like adding, this is great for using up all those leftover bits of sandwich meat that you may have knocking around in the fridge.

Stick it in the oven until it is cooked, its quite hard to judge when it is done especially when you are burning the chips you just did to go with as you forgot about the pastry and had to rush, but I am guessing about 10-15mins for it to be cooked properly in a med-hot oven.
When it is done it looks like this (but probably more cooked as I took this out a little early) chop it into pieces you get about 4 good sized pieced out of a sheet of pastry, its nice with salad but my daughter has it with a few chips.
Also good for kids parties as you can cut it into fingers and put it on a buffet.
