Puff Pastry Pizza

I have not had take out pizzas for ages. I guess I have always thought that making pizzas using chapati bases or bread bases are a far more cheaper, faster and healthier way to do so. Don't get me wrong though, I still enjoy my fast food. It's just that I like to think that I can have that additional slice without adding inches to my waistline. ;)

Recently, I saw adverts for Puff Pastry Pizzas. And I thought..what a GREAT idea! Now, I guess the amount of fat and calories would be double or even triple the amount of normal pizzas so I thought I can try making 2 versions of it at home.It's not the healthiest in the world, but at least it was better than eating out.That way, I can choose the ingredients carefully (re lower fat cheese, less cheese, type of sauces...etc)

It turned out to be like... a huge tart! LOL It was good though. We totally had a  blast eating it. My versions were Chili  Garlic Feta Prawns and BBQ chicken.

Puff Pastry Pizzas
2 pieces of puff pastry

 Chili  Garlic Feta Prawns
100 grams of shelled prawns
20 grams of feta
1 cup of low fat mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup of sliced mushrooms 
1 tsp of  garlic minced
1 chili
1/2 red onion chopped
2 tablespoon of tomato paste

Spread tomato paste on puff pastry. Place onions first. Then sprinkle prawns and mushrooms over it. Crumbled feta and garlic over the prawns. Sprinkle cheese on it. Bake in preheated 200 C oven for 20 minutes.

BBQ Mushroom Chicken
1 cup of cooked chicken with bbq sauce
1/2 red onion chopped 
1cup of mushrooms sliced
2 tablespoon of bbq sauce

Spread bbq sauce over base of puff pastry. Add onions and mushrooms. Place chicken on it and and squirt some more bbq sauce on it. Sprinkle some cheese. Bake in 200C preheated oven for 20-25 minutes.

Served with salad!

Talk about pizza, I only made twice. One is meat crust and the other one is tortilla crust. Puff pastry crust sounds a good choice.
