Defrost gluten-free puff pastry dough as instructed on the package, or make your own gluten-free puff pastry dough from scratch. See notes.
Preheat oven to 400º F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Roll out puff pastry dough to desired thickness (the thinner the better - about 1/2 - 3/4" thick).
Use a butter knife or pizza cutter to cut 24 even rectangles in the dough.
Wrap each mini hot dog with puff pastry rectangle. Pinch the dough together and place each hot dog seam side down on the baking sheet.
Bake for about 12 minutes or until puff pastry expands and lightly browns. Watch the cook time carefully to ensure the puff pastry doesn't burn.
Serve immediately with mustard (optional).
