Friends have called in unannounced .......lunch???
I live in a place where the nearest proper shop (not a corner shop) is 4 miles away, so when friends call in unexpectedly what do you give them that is quick to make, in the fridge/storecupboard & nice to eat?
My solution is this.......
A tart of puff pastry (a sheet I have previously rolled out & ready to thaw quickly, in the freezer),
covered with whatever I have to hand, in this case: Onion, a very quick Tomato Sauce (2 tomatoes, tom.puree, roasted red pepper, olive paste, olive oil), Pepperoni, Mozzarella Cheese (the cheap stuff) & good olive oil.
Bung it in the oven until the pastry is crispy & the topping cooked.
Very quick & the house smelled wonderful.
The finished photo doesn't do it justice..........but in no time flat it was served with a lovely salad of leaves, baby plum tomatoes & spring onion, simply dressed..............to the delight of guests willing to be fed! Lovely.
That looks so good
It tasted pretty good too, despite the finished article not looking very photogenic!
lovely Minnie, I sometimes do the same, one of my favrite toppings is Brie or Camambers and a load of little tomatoes 1/2's cut in half scattered well with hyme leaves s and baked cut side up ontop of the pastry
