An easy recipe!

Ingredients

Puff pastry sheets 17 1/3 Ounce (2 sheets)
Pasta sauce 1 Cup (16 tbs) (your choice)
Shredded mozzarella cheese 1 1/2 Cup (24 tbs)
Sliced turkey pepperoni 3 Ounce (cut into strips)
Sliced basil 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Dried italian herbs To Taste
Egg 1 (+ 2 Tablespoons Water = Egg Wash)

Directions

Getting Ready

Preheat oven to 400 Degrees F.

Making

Prepare all of the ingredients for the filling first. Whisk the egg wash and set aside.

Unfold the puff pastry onto a surface that has been lightly dusted with flour. Lightly roll over the seams where the sheets were folded with a rolling pin. Cut each sheet into 4 equal squares. With each square facing you, brush the left and bottom sides with the egg wash. Next, place about 1 tablespoons of pasta sauce in the center followed by mozzarella cheese, basil, pepperoni and a light sprinkle of dried Italian Herbs.

Next, fold the puff pastry over by taking the upper right-hand corner and folding it over to meet the lower left-hand corner. Slightly stretch the pastry so it can be completely sealed and all of the filling is securely inside. Using a fork, crimp and seal the edges. Use a paring knife to make a small slit in the center just so the pastry can vent during the cooking time.

Place the stuffed pastries on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper at least 2 inches apart and brush each one with egg wash. Bake at 400 degrees F for 25 minutes. Once done, allow them to cool for about 5 minutes and then enjoy immediately.
