Recipe Tips

  • Make sure the oven is at the desired temperature before adding the pizzas in. If the oven is not hot enough, you may find the puff pastry will not rise very much, and possibly go soggy. It will leave you with disappointingly flat pizzas.
  • Try not to overload the pastry with too many ingredients as it might become soggy and not very enjoyable. Sometimes less is more!
  • Make sure you let the puff pastry defrost before trying to cut it. If it is still frozen, it may crack and splinter when you cut it. Do not refreeze puff pastry as it will not puff up next time you cook it.
