I love making pastry. The way I do it is quick and easy, and it’s almost like cheating. I had a friend of mine (pastry chef) come to my cheese and crackers class and I worried she may judge me on my totally unconventional methods of making pastry. Fortunately, she was suitably impressed and said she couldn’t believe no one else had thought of doing mini pizza quiche this way.
Anyway, I made these little mini quiche pizzas for my grandson’s school lunchboxes. Just pop them in the freezer, so easy.
