Phyllo Pizza

My elder daughter loves pizza and always wants to make some at home.I try to replace the crust every now and then with different ingredients to make it taste unique and delicious.This time I had some leftover of thawed phyllo pastry that needs to be used up soon.So I searched recipes with phyllo pastry and made my family favorite version of the pizza with bell peppers,olives and jalapenos peppers.

This pizza tasted great and last weekend we had a nice brunch with some orange juice and warm phyllo pizza .Just make sure to brush all the sheets with butter otherwise it will taste dry.Don’t get worried about few breaks in the sheets while arranging ,they all will set up after baking.So use your imagination and make your phyllo pizza with favorite topping.

    Using phyllo dough for the pizza base sounds very interesting – must have made the pizza or crispy and crunchy.

    Delicious toppings. Phyllo as pizza base is a nice idea. It is always nice to have a variation to dishes that are prepared very often.
