A few weeks ago, for my Make Your Own Monday series, I published a quick puff pastry recipe. I used the dough to make these fancy pizzas for my son's fourteenth birthday party. I didn't tell any of the boys who attended what they were eating. I simply put one of these babies in front of each of them and let them go to town. All of them devoured them. One boy left a few figs on the side, but not one of them asked what was in the "pizza." I wonder what they'd have said if I mentioned the goat cheese.
It is my opinion that they'd have run for the hills. Luckily, they were on their best behavior and didn't ask about any of the food I made for them that night.
Prosciutto Fig Pizzettes (makes 8)1 recipe puff pastry (or 1 box frozen store bought)
4 ounces goat cheese
2 Tbsp dried figs, chopped
4 thin slices prosciutto
5 large slices Asiago cheese
Divide the dough into 8 sections. Press it into 8 4inch tart pans. Divide the goat cheese into 8 parts and spread it on top of the puff pastry. Sprinkle the figs and prosciutto over the goat cheese. Top with broken slices of cheese (if you get it from the deli like I did, the cheese will be larger than the tarts...if you are slicing your own, slice 8 pieces). Bake 12-15 minutes at 450 degrees or until golden brown and bubbly.Tweet
