Puff pastry pizzas

Puff pastry pizzas are the BEST, they are so easy to do and like most things involving puff pastry and cheese they are so delicious. Perfect to do for kids or as part of a lunch for your friends. Use whatever toppings you like...

1 pre rolled packet puff pastry
1/2 a jar of passata or tinned tomatoes pureed
handful of basil leaves
1 big ball of mozzarella torn apart
4 slices prosciutto, ham, salami
1 fresh chilli sliced or pinch of dried chilli flakes

Preheat you oven to 180˚C and score a crust line about 2 cm thick around the edge of your pastry, using a fork prick the middle gently all over. This stops the pastry from rising too much in the middle so it's easy to apply your toppings. Cook the pastry on its own in the oven for about 15-20 mins until it is slightly golden and the pastry is almost cooked. If you don't cook it enough now then the pastry will become very soggy in the middle, although lots of people love that!

Take the pastry out and spread the passata over the base, season with salt and pepper and scatter the mozzarella, basil leaves and chilli over. Slightly tear the prosciutto and spread over the pizza then cook in the oven till all melted and delicious, normally about 10-15 mins. To serve sprinkle over some fresh rocket leaves for the ultimate italian touch.
