Mini pizzas made from puff pastry are a great idea for a quick snack. Using puff pastry saves time which you would normally spend on waiting for the regular pizza dough to rise. All you need to do with the puff pastry is to remove it from the refrigerator, carve out the desired shapes out of it and fill it with your favourite filling. In this recipe, I focus on store-bought pastry, so the preparation of these puff pastry pizza snacks is extremely quick. You may be tempted to use homemade puff pastry, but in this case you have to make it beforehand or use frozen one.

The puff pastry pizza filling consists of cheese, mushrooms and sun-dried tomatoes. It is so tasty that when I was placing it on my pizzas I couldn’t stop munching it. You can serve the baked pizzas by themselves or sprinkled with a pinch of fresh herbs. I recommend you to the following recipe for puff pastry pizza snacks and wish you happy baking.
