Ingredients

  • 1 store-bought puff pastry sheet
  • For the tomato sauce:
  • 1 cup tomato passata or tomato puree
  • 1 garlic clove grated
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon tomato paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt to season
  • For the toppings:
  • 1/2 cup sweet corn kernels I used canned corn kernels
  • 1/2 cup diced red and yellow bell peppers
  • 1/2 cup grated pizza cheese
  • Green or black olives cut into rings
  • Peppercorns for eyeballs
  • 1 egg for an egg wash optional

Instructions

  • Start by preparing the tomato sauce:
  • In a saucepan, saute the garlic in olive oil on medium heat. Add the tomato passata or puree and tomato paste. Add the dried herbs and season with salt and stir well.
  • Saute on low heat for 5 - 6 minutes.
  • Turn off the heat once done and let the sauce cool down.
  • Using a round container, cut out circles in the puff pastry sheet (do not throw away the scraps, you will need them for the mummy's bandage strips).
  • Place the circles on a parchment-lined baking pan.
  • Spread the tomato sauce on the cut puff pastry circles.
  • Add the toppings, followed by the pizza cheese.
  • Cut up the leftover puff pastry sheet into strips and place these over the topped pizza bases.
  • Let the strips overlap.
  • Using the round container, cut off the strips, sealing them into the puff pastry on the base.
  • Using a pastry brush, spread some egg wash over the top of the puff pasty strips.
  • Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180 C for 10 minutes, or until the puff pastry is golden and crisp.
  • Using the olive rings, create eyes for the mummies, and a peppercorn for the eyeballs.
