Puff Pizza Ring is an easy appetizer idea you can prepare just in few minutes and have it ready by the time guests arrive. It looks quite impressive and appetizing and takes no more than 10 minutes to have it ready to go in the oven.
You can make a lot of variations to the filling used, simply add your favorite ingredients either sweet or savory and roll it up to create this beautiful ring of puff pastry.
For this recipe I’ve used homemade tomato pizza sauce as I really like how it turns out but feel free to use any other sauce you have around if you are in a hurry.
This puff pizza ring should be served a bit warm alongside your favorite dipping sauce. Enjoy!
