  • 2 sheets frozen puff pastry thawed
  • 3 tablespoons pesto
  • 1 roasted red pepper from a jar drained, patted dry and diced
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • coarse salt to taste


  • Preheat oven to 425°F.  Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone liner.  (Or I use a round baking stone without a liner.)
  • Unroll one sheet of pastry dough on a floured surface or pastry mat.  Use a rolling pin to roll to a 12 to 14 inch square.  Use a sharp knife to shape into about a 12-inch circle.  Cut out a 3-4 inch hole in the center with an upside down cup.  Transfer the dough to a baking sheet.
  • Spread pesto evenly over the circle dough then sprinkle evenly with the roasted red pepper.
  • Unroll the other pastry sheet and shape the same as the first one.  Place it over top the dough on the baking sheet.  Use a sharp knife to cut 1 to 2-inch slices, leaving the center intact.  With your fingers, twist each strip 2 to 3 times to the right, working your way around the entire wreath.
  • Bake 15 minutes until golden brown.  Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and coarse salt. 
  • Optional: Create a bow out of any extra roasted red pepper.
