From croissants to strudels, pretzels to profiteroles, the world of pastry is as broad as that of bread. The difference is that pastry dough is fattier than bread dough, making most pastries lighter and fluffier. Also, pastries are almost always more than unadorned baked dough. They are filled, topped, or rolled around fillings that can range from Nutella to gooseberries. Familiar types of pastry are shortbreads (as the foundation of quiche or other tarts), puff (super flaky), filo (see-through thin), and choux (airy enough to be filled, as in an eclair).
