Pizza Puff Rolls
We all love pizza.I wanted to give a twist to these pizza's by rolling it on a puff pastry sheet.I had two left over puff pastry sheets,some basic store bought pasta sauce and some mozzarella cheese,so I came up with the idea of pizza on a roll!!!Sorry about the poor photography....but the rolls were flaky crispy and tasted very yummy :))....
1) Puff pastry sheets - 2
2) Pasta sauce - 1/4 th cup
3) Julienned onions and bell peppers - 1/2 cup
4) Grated mozzarella cheese - 1/4 th cup
5) Italian seasoning
6) Hot sauce or red chilly powder - little
7) Salt to taste
8) Oil - 1 1/2 tsp
Thaw or defrost the pastry sheets as per the instructions on the box.
In a pan,pour little oil and saute the vegetables along with salt and few dashes of hot sauce till they become tender.Keep it aside and allow it to cool down.
Pre- heat the over to 375 degrees.
Cut each rectangular pastry sheet into six equal parts.Take one smaller sheet and with help of a roti rolling pin,roll it over the sheet little so that it stretches and will be easy to roll,if the sheet sticks to the board use some all purpose flour.Take a tablespoon of pasta sauce,spread over the sheet leaving a little gap near the edges.Top it with veggies and cheese.Sprinkle little Italian seasonings.Carefully roll the sheet from one edge to the other and close the edges with just touching very little water in you hands.Repeat the same procedure for other pastries also.Brush little oil on each pastry. On a baking sheet which is covered with foil,arrange these rolled pastries and bake them for 15 to 17 minutes or until nice golden brown in color.Allow it to cool a bit and serve.
Lovely rolls are ready!!! Enjoy with some ketchup.
Note:Oven time might vary so keep an eye on it so that they don't get burned.
You can make egg rolls too.Boil eggs and cut it vertically into 4 pieces each.Cook the same veggies as mentioned above with some dry spices like turmeric,coriander and red chilly powder,add salt.Roll the sheet as told earlier.Top it with veggies,keep an egg piece and roll the pastry.Follow the same instructions as above and you will have yummy egg rolls too.So,this way you can serve your guests with two varieties of rolls.
