2-Cheese Vegetable Puff Pastry "pizza"

With a large Zucchini on one hand, and a craving for Khachapuri on the other, I made a 'Puff pastry 2-Cheese vegetable' "pizza". I think you can call it a pizza.

Here was what I did:

1. Thinly (read: patiently) sliced 1 Zucchini, ~2-3mm thick.
Tossed in a few cloves of crushed garlic and a few swirls of olive oil. I love Garlic.
2. Rolled out the Puff Pastry, then layered it with crumbled Feta Cheese.
3. Topped the Feta with sliced Mozzarella Cheese. (Left a few slices of Mozzarella for final topping.)
4. Arranged the tossed Zucchini slices, overlapping them. (It was a large Zucchini!)
5. Topped this "pizza" with remaining slices of Mozzarella. And oops, I almost forgot herbs!
6. Baked it in a preheated oven -- 200 Celsius for 20min, then 180 Celsius for the last 10min!
It was surprisingly good!

So, Puff Pastry Pizza?

  3. Now I realise I can't take full credit for the use of puff pastry.

    I once had a puff pastry pizza at a friends; she used breadcrumbed eggplant along with the "usual" pizza ingredients of tomato paste and mozzarella.

  5. Hi! About your second hand shopping comment:

    My mum used to say, when 'friends' got sniffy about shopping in charity shops, that anyone who was happy about who they were would shop second hand, because they had nothing to prove, and would buy whatever and wherever they fancied. The only people who saw second hand shopping as a bad thing were those who were insecure and trying to 'improve' their lot in life by acting superior.

    I used to get quite cross when people complained about having to buy things second hand for their kids (after all, our boys have been almost totally in second hand stuff all their lives!), but I do realise that we can do this happily because we are very secure. If someone has suffered, say a bad divorce, then I can see that the added thing of having less money and moving to second hand stuff might genuinely be part of what upsets them.

    How did the discussion in your German class carry on..?

  11. YUM! I need to wipe the drool off the laptop! LOL! Thanks for your sweet comment on Travelingmama! I so agree- sometimes we have to celebrate our mistakes and the paths that were unexpected because they have formed us into who we are. Gives us character, right?
