I love puff pastry treats! They remind me of my childhood as they would always be part of all our festive spreads. This Pizza Christmas Tree is very easy and quick to make and it looks impressive. It would definitely make for a great appetiser idea to serve to family and friends this coming Christmas. Besides looking almost too cute to eat (almost!), it tastes fantastic… who doesn’t like pizza anyway? Try it and let me know what you think!
Pizza Christmas Tree
- 2 puff pastry sheets thawed
- Tomato puree
- Salt to taste
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Mozzarella shredded
- Egg beaten
Mix together the tomato puree, oregano, a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, and salt to taste. Keep aside.
Cut out two Christmas tree shapes from the puff pastry sheets.
Spread some of the prepared pizza sauce on one of the puff pastry Christmas trees. Top with shredded mozzarella and cover with the other tree.
Cut out the branches with a sharp knife and press the sides to close well. Twist the branches and add a star at the top.
Brush with beaten egg and bake at 180°C – 355°F for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve warm or at room temperature.
