Puff Pastry Pizza

I remember eating Pepperidge Farms puff pasty pizza when I was a kid.  It was a long, narrow rectangular pizza, and the crust was super puffy.  Usually mozzarella cheese was the only topping.  I’ve recreated it here, with a mostly homemade version.  Since puff pastry is one of those items that is way easier to purchase than to make, and the quality is still good, I buy it from the store.  I prefer the Trader Joe’s brand puff pastry, if you can find it, since it is made from the most natural ingredients.

Spinach and Cheese Pocket

Spinach and Cheese Pocket

Here’s a quick and easy, tasty homemade pocket sandwich.  Using a few frozen ingredients you can have a warm, hearty homemade meal in less than half an hour.  The pocket uses puff pastry, which is one of the few ingredients I buy premade and frozen.  It’s helpful to have this multi-use ingredient handy in your freezer.  Don’t limit yourself to cheese and spinach filling for these pockets either.  Why not try bbq chicken and Monterey jack cheese, or ham and cheddar.  There are endless possibilities.
