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.
