  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Combine the ricotta, mozzarella, flour, salt, oregano, a few turns of pepper, the chopped green pepper and 1 of the eggs in a large bowl.
  3. On a work surface lightly dusted with flour, roll the puff pastry out to 10-by-15 inches. If it gets sticky, dust with more flour. Cut the pastry into 6 squares and transfer to the lined baking sheet. Place a dollop of the cheese mixture into one of the corners of each square, leaving a 3/4-inch border. Create a well in the center of the cheese mixture and add a spoonful of sauce. Sprinkle with the mini pepperoni and any additional desired toppings. Beat the remaining egg with a splash of water in a bowl to make an egg wash and brush the edges of the pastry with it. Fold the pastry over and press to seal well, using a fork to pinch the edges. Repeat with the remaining pastry squares and filling. Brush the tops with the egg wash. 
  4. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. 
  5. Bake until golden brown; begin checking for doneness at 30 minutes. (It's alright if some of them break open at the seams while baking; it's part of their rustic charm.) Let cool slightly, then serve warm with additional pizza sauce for dunking. Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator and are great cold the next morning for breakfast! You can also prepare a whole batch a day or two in advance, store them in the fridge, and reheat them for a few minutes in a 325 degree F oven before serving.
