Quick Puff Pastry Pizza

This recipe is adapted from Donna Klein's Vegan Italiano. I made this last night for the first time and was sooooo pleasantly surprised at not only how quick and easy it was, but how incredibly delicious it was. I'm excited about this recipe because there can be so many variations to it. Really, it's not so much a recipe to me as it is the ingenious idea to use frozen puff pastry for pizza dough. YUM. Seriously.

Obviously you can use whatever toppings you like. I'm just going to list the ingredients exactly the way I made it.

(serves 4-6 as a main dish or 8-12 appetizer servings)

1 sheet of frozen puff pastry (about 8.5 oz.) thawed
All-purpose flour for dusting
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 medium onion cut in half lengthwise and thinly sliced crosswise
1 1/2 cups small broccoli florets
1 cup sliced bell peppers (left over from Seitan Pepper Steaks!)
1/2 cup grape tomatoes sliced in half
salt and pepper
3/4 cup pizza/marinara sauce (I used marinara because it was all I could find in the grocery store and too lazy to make my own)
Dried oregano

1. Preheat the oven to 400*.

2. Unfold the pastry on a lightly floured surface and roll out into a rectangle (we felt the pizza crust was a little too thin so be conscious of this as you're rolling). Place onto a nongreased baking sheet and fold over the edges to form a rim. Prick everything but the rim of the pastry with a fork. Bake on the center rack for 10 minutes or until beautifully golden.

3. While the pastry is baking, heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and peppers and saute for about 3 minutes, or until softened. Throw in the broccoli and salt and pepper and cook until the broccoli is bright green and softened. Add the grape tomatoes and cook for another minute or two. Remove from heat.

4. Spread pizza sauce over the pizza crust and add the sauteed veggies. Sprinkle with the oregano, salt, and pepper, and then drizzle with a little olive oil. Marvel over how beautiful and fresh it looks just as I did. Bake for 5 minutes, or until heated through. Serve at once.
