Puff Pastry Pizza Bundles
We love eating appetizers, but making them? That’s a hard sell, unless it requires about two seconds of our time. Enter puff pastry pizza bundles, which look fancy but take all of 10 minutes to put together (and will disappear from your game watch party in even less).
All-purpose flour, as needed
1 sheet store-bought puff pastry, thawed (we like Dufour)
24 to 30 pepperoni, sliced in half
1 cup mozzarella cheese
Egg wash (1 large egg whisked with 1 tablespoon water), as needed
Crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
Pizza sauce (store-bought or homemade), for serving
1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pastry to a square about ⅛-inch thick. Cut the sheet into 16 equal squares; transfer to the prepared baking sheets. Chill one baking sheet in the fridge while you work with the other squares.
3. Dock the squares all over with a fork. On each square, place 3 or 4 slices of pepperoni and about 1 tablespoon of mozzarella in the center. Fold one point of the puff pastry inward toward the center of the square, use a pastry brush to brush the exposed dough with egg wash, then fold the opposite point in, pressing down to seal the corners together. Repeat with all the puff pastry squares, then brush with egg wash.
4. Transfer to the oven and bake until puffed and golden, 13 to 15 minutes. Cool slightly before serving with warmed pizza sauce for dipping.
