Notes

For a twist on ham and cheese, omit the sauce, mozzarella cheese, and pepperoni. Layer 1 slice deli ham, 2 slices salami, and 1 slice Cheddar cheese on each pastry rectangle, folding the edges as needed to fit on the pastry without hanging over the sides. Arrange the pastry strips over the filling and proceed as directed above.

Parchment paper keeps the pastry from sticking to the baking sheet and also makes for easier cleanup. If you don't have parchment paper, you can spray the baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray instead. However, cooking spray may cause the bottoms of the pastries to brown more quickly, so begin checking for doneness 5 minutes early.

Ingredients

  • egg
  • 1  Tablespoon  water
  • 2  Tablespoons  all-purpose flour
  • 17.3-ounce package frozen puff pastry sheets, such as Pepperidge Farm, thawed
  • 6  Tablespoons  marinara sauce, such as Prego
  • ¾  Cup  shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 18  slices pepperoni
  • 12  slices pitted ripe black olives

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Beat the egg and water in a small bowl with a fork.

Sprinkle the flour on a work surface. Unfold 1 pastry sheet on the work surface. Cut the pastry sheet into 3 rectangles along the fold lines. Cut the pastry rectangles in half crosswise, making 6 (about 3-by-5-inch) rectangles. Place the pastry rectangles onto the baking sheet.

Spread about 1 tablespoon sauce on each pastry to the edge. Top each with about 2 tablespoons cheese and 3 slices pepperoni.

Unfold the remaining pastry sheet on the work surface. Cut the pastry sheet into 3 rectangles along the fold lines. Cut each pastry rectangle crosswise into 12 (about ¾-inch wide) strips, making 36 in all.

Arrange 6 pastry strips on each pastry, placing them slightly askew over the filling to resemble a mummy's bandages. Brush with the egg mixture. Place 2 olive slices on each pastry for the "eyes."

Bake until the pastries are golden brown, 20 minutes. Let the pastries cool on the baking sheet on a wire rack for 10 minutes.

Pizza Shopping Tip

Pressed for time on a busy weeknight, but don't want to settle for frozen pizza? Start with ready-made pizza crusts. You'll still be able to add your own sauce and fresh ingredients for a homemade taste.

Pizza Cooking Tip

If you're attempting to make your own dough, make sure to keep your work surface lightly dusted with flour, or the dough may stick.

Pizza Wine Pairing

Grenache, gamay, nero d'avola, pinotage, rosé; pinot gris/grigio with seafood pizza; albariño with white pizza.
