Easy Caprese Pizza

Tracking Pixel

Last week my kids and I had the opportunity to attend a Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry party thrown by a local blogger in town. I was so excited to attend the party because I knew there would be food. It sounds silly, I know, but it was food I could eat that I didn’t have to prepare. Add that to the fact that this is supposed to be work (aka I’m getting paid), this gig was too good to pass up.

That ALWAYS make a good party in my book.

Mariah whipped up six separate dishes, all featuring Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry. She made three savory dishes and three sweet dishes. Honestly, they were all delicious. I’ve used Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry a ton in the past when making sweet dishes, but I’ve never used it for a savory dish, until now.

Oh my gosh, y’all, it was all way too good. I couldn’t stop after one so I just kept on eating.

Figures! Just when I need to be swimsuit ready…

But while I was at the party, I got so many new recipe ideas I wanted to try at home. From sweet to savory, over the summer, I hope to share some of these ideas when time allows and my kids give me a break from swimming, going to the movies, and building tents.

Recipe type: Entree
Serves: 8
Ingredients
  • 1 sheet Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry
  • ½ cup balsamic vinegar, reduced down to ¼
  • 8 oz fresh mozzarella, sliced
  • 1 large ripe tomato, sliced
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 3 large basil leaves, chiffonade
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Unfold the pastry sheet onto a lightly floured surface. Roll the puff pastry into a rectangle and place on a baking sheet. Fold the edges over on all sides to create a rim. With a fork, prick the pastry thoroughly. Place in the oven and bake for 10 minutes.
  3. In the meantime, pour balsamic vinegar into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat down to medium-low and simmer until the vinegar has reduced down to about a ¼ cup. Set aside and allow to cool.
  4. Remove the puff pastry from the oven after 10 minutes. Arrange mozzarella slices evenly over pastry and top with sliced tomatoes. Season with freshly ground black pepper. Place back in the oven and continue to cook for 10-12 minutes or until the crust is browned and the cheese is bubbly.
  5. Remove pizza from oven and sprinkle basil over the top. Finish by drizzling with balsamic glaze.
  6. Serve hot.

I love the way Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry makes the crust look really rustic and homemade. The square shape of the pizza reminds me of a pizza you could get at a restaurant right out of the stone oven.

    When I was pregnant with my second child, all I wanted to eat was cheese pizza, preferably of the cardboard variety. Thankfully that didn’t last! I need pizza to be a little bit more flavorful than the packaging it comes in. The looks incredible, especially the balsamic glaze!
