Pizza in snack form.
Pizza is the sort of meal that I don’t think I could ever get bored of. There are so many flavour combinations for something different every day of the week, however, sometimes I feel like pizza and it's a bit too much for a snack. Therefore, when you want something a little different to share or have fun making, these pizza pockets are the one. They are little parcels of heaven, with a deliciously cheesy and tomatoey filling, with pepperoni and a smidge of basil.
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Bake Time: 18-22 minutes
Cool: 10 minutes
Lasts: 3+ days, in the fridge (but best served fresh)
- 3 tbsp tomato purée
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp Italian mixed herbs
- 1 tsp chilli flakes
- Salt and pepper
- 2 tbsp water
- 2 x sheets of puff pastry
- Plain flour, for dusting
- 60g pepperoni pieces
- 12 fresh basil leaves
- 200g mozzarella, grated
- 2 tsp dried oregano
- 25g Parmesan
Add the tomato purée, onion powder, garlic powder, Italian mixed herbs, chilli flakes, salt and pepper and water to a bowl and mix together to make a paste.
- Preheat the oven to 220ºC/200ºC fan and line two large baking trays with parchment paper.
- Unroll the puff pastry sheets onto a lightly floured surface and cuteach one into six squares to make 12 in total. Divide the pizza sauce between the pastry squares and spread slightly. Add a few pieces of pepperoni to each square, then add a basil leaf. Sprinkle over the mozzarella. Fold the squares over and seal with a fork to make the pockets. Sprinkle over the dried oregano and Parmesan.
- Bake in the oven for 18–22 minutes until golden.
- You can swap the filling flavours for your favourite pizza toppings. Just stick to similar quantities so your pockets still seal shut.
- You can switch the puff pastry for a ready-made pizza dough if you want, but the pastry is quicker and easier!
A classic ice cream, in cookie form!
Cheesecake + muffins = deliciously tasty.
A lemon meringue pie is one of the most fresh and zingy bakes you can make and my classic recipe features on my blog, but for this book I wanted to improve it if I could and that’s when I came up with individual Mini Lemon Meringue Pies.
I am obsessed with all things ‘blondie’ and these Cinnamon Blondies hit the spot.
I find that a quiche is one of those bakes that lends itself well to lunchtime, dinnertime or even as part of a mid-afternoon snack.
