I just followed the pastry recipe and made mini pizzas. I used white whole wheat flour and added 1 1/2 tsp of gluten. I also added some garlic and oregano. After they came out of the oven I brushed them with butter. They were amazing!!! Very flaky and delicious! I wouldn't do them for pizza again, but definitely with scrambled eggs and cheese!
