Puff Pastry Pizza from Vicki Delany

Another great recipe I found in my daughter’s copy of Veg by Jamie Oliver. Tomatoes are the star of this pizza but you can add just about any combination of vegetables you’d like.  I’m gong to try it with mushrooms next.

Puff Pastry Pizza


1 red onion

1 red pepper

8 – 10 oz ripe mixed-color cherry tomatoes

4 sprigs of fresh oregano leaves, chopped

Olive oil

14 oz package of puff pastry

2,5 oz mozzarella cheese

2 sprigs of fresh basil

balsamic vinegar


Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Peel and quarter the onion and separate into petals, then scatter into a roasting pan. Seed and roughly chop the pepper, halve the tomatoes, then add to the pan. Add oregano leaves, drizzle with two tablespoons of oil, season with sea salt and black pepper,

Roast for 50 minutes, tossing halfway.

Roll puff pastry into an approximate size to cover your tomato mixture, with room to tuck in the sides

Remove the pan from the oven and push the tomato mixture towards the center slightly. Brush the sides and corners of the pan with oil, then cover the tomato with the pastry sheet and tuck in the edges.

Place back in the oven for 30 minutes, or until golden and puffed up. Gently run a palette knife around the edge of the pastry to loosen, then carefully turn out onto a board.

Sprinkle with mozzarella and basil, and drizzle with balsamic vinegar, to taste.

  1. What an interesting change of pace!
    How did the turning it over go? No mishaps?
    Mushrooms turn into amazing bits when roasted. I wonder if 50 minutes and then another 30 might be too much for them. But they will need the first roasting so they don't make things too wet.
    Let us know how it goes when you try this.

    1. No mishaps flipping it,but you do have to be careful

  2. I love puff pastry, but haven't used it in an age. Since moving to the South so much of my baking just doesn't work. I have given up. This sounds yummy delicious. I think I will give it a whirl. Shouldn't read food when hungry- make promises.
    Your book's are great fun Holmes, Lighthouses or tea all Fantastically fabulous.

    1. Thanks very much I hope the recipe works for you
