  2. Second topping is the taco topping – shredded lettuce, cubed tomatoes, olives, cheese with a generous drizzle of sour cream. Oh, my that’s so delicious!

The second topping is a must have. All that added lettuce, tomatoes and olives brings out an amazing depth of flavor. Crispy and flaky Easy Puff Pastry Taco Pizza

Few Tips to avoid a soggy base!

For crispy crust make sure you follow these steps.

  • Heat your baking tray before putting the puff pastry on top. This will result in a crispy base.
  • Make sure all your toppings are paper-dried before it goes on the pizza. Corn, bell pepper and black beans hold moisture. So wrap the toppings in between a paper towel and press gently. This will draw out all the excess moisture and your pizza base will not end up soggy.

Always have puff pastry sheets on hand. This is a perfect last minute appetizer for unexpected guests.Crispy and flaky Easy Puff Pastry Taco Pizza

METHOD
FOR PIZZA
  1. Assemble ingredients. Preheat oven @ 400 degree F.
  2. And spices.
  3. Combine all the ingredients listed under pizza in a bowl.
  4. Spread the toppings on a paper towel. Make sure all your toppings are paper-dried before it goes on the pizza. Corn, bell pepper and black beans hold moisture.
  5. So wrap the toppings in between a paper towel and press gently. This will draw out all the excess moisture and your pizza base will not end up soggy. This step is a game-changer.
  6. Meanwhile, grease a baking tray and place it in the warm oven for 15-20 minutes. This will result in a crispy bottom crust. A COOKIE/CAKE WIRE RACK CAN ALSO BE USED TO BAKE THIS PIZZA.

  7. Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Roll the pastry sheet into a rectangle.
  8. Carefully, remove hot baking sheet from oven and transfer the pastry onto the hot baking sheet. Leaving an inch on all four sides make a rectangle on the sheet. Use a fork to gently poke holes throughout all of the pastry dough. This way the center will not rise during baking but the edges will puff up well.
  9. Transfer the veggies/beans back to the bowl and add spices.
  10. And cheese. Mix it well. Spread the mix immediately onto the puff pastry sheet.
  11. Generously sprinkle topping in that rectangle. Do not add the toppings on the sides.
  12. Brush all the four sides with butter and bake for 15-20 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and crispy.
  13. Remove from oven and advance to the next step.

    Great recipe! Perfect for those that like a light crisp pizza. To switch it up in the winter, I have used home made or packaged bread dough. That comes out great too, just a bit heavier. Thanks for sharing!
