- puff pastry- go for quality! I buy the pampas puff pastry. If you want other ideas for what to do with the 8 other sheets in the pack, try these scrolls, or these super yummy tarts.
- salami- I've used a mild danish salami, switch it out for whatever is your kids favourite
- zucchini- cut in rounds this time, but I think zucchini is my all time favourite veggie due to its versatility.
How to make this recipe
- Take your pastry out to defrost, and preheat your oven to 200 degrees celsius! That is 395F.
- Thinly slice the zucchini into rounds.
- Cut each salami slice into quarters.
- Cut the pastry through the middle then into 6 rectangles.
- Smush the fetta, coating the top of the pastry sheet.
- Top with zucchini. (Image 5)
- Add the salami and cook at 200 degrees celsius in your oven! (Image 6, 7)
- Cool on the tray for a few minutes before serving. (Image 8)
Want to make these in your airfryer? It means you can get them done really quickly! They only take 10 minutes at 200 degrees celsius, but make sure the airfryer is preheated or you will end up with soggy pastry. And I'm warning you- press down the salami- or it will literally blow off the pizzas!
Expert Tips and FAQs

Yes! In fact that is exactly what I do! I freeze them on a tray flat and then transfer to a container when solid. That way they don't stick to each other in the freezer.
Yes, you can, pop your favourite toppings on them, just don't overload them as they will become soggy.
