It's important to keep the puff pastry from puffing so much that toppings slide off. To prep: 1| Pinch dough together to repair any tears. 2| Cut into shapes as directed; a fluted pastry wheel makes pretty scalloped edges. 3| Score dough close to outer edge. 4| Prick dough inside score marks to tame puffing.
