|smoked salmon & leek puff pastry pizza tart|
My smoked salmon & leek puff pastry pizza tart is a quick & easy lunch or supper recipe. Only a few minutes preparation time then into the oven. Serve with a simple salad for a tasty meal ready in less than 30 minutes.
I love the combination of the smoky salmon with the sweet caramelised leeks & cream base. You can of course take the basic idea and add your own toppings & ingredients. I have made puff pastry pizza tarts (I do like saying that!) so many times with different toppings. Great for a tasty & quick meal with friends. What about trying it with chorizo & chilli, blue cheese & mushroom or ham & tomato instead? Just a few ideas - but it's up to you...
I hope you enjoy the recipe and let me know if you try it. Bon appetit!
