I may have mentioned this before, but I cannot emphasize enough that brunch is by far my favorite meal of the day. So any excuse to create a brunch recipe is a win in my book! I perused our local grocery store for a few items to get us through the weekend, and I had a thought. My husband LOVES Puff Pastry. I LOVE breakfast pizza. Maybe it's time to combine these ideas. So, I did just that!
This super easy Puff Pastry Breakfast Pizza uses frozen puff pastry sheets topped with plenty of eggs, cheese, and bacon. This is totally savory with the flakiest crust- a total hit at any brunch gathering!
Tips for how to make breakfast pizza
- Be sure to thaw the puff pastry dough (aka pizza dough!) as per the package directions. I buy them in the form of Puff Pastry Sheets (our store sells Pepperidge Farms brand).
- Line your baking sheet with parchment for easy clean up (and an easier transfer to the sheet pan after rolling and shaping the crust).
- If the puff pastry dough happens to crack while you're rolling it, use water to fix it. I keep a small bowl of it next to me so I can dip my finger in it to lightly dampen the dough. The water works as an adhesive.
- I like to fold the edges over around the entire perimeter of the dough and adhere them with a bit of water to create the “pizza crust”.
- Poke the dough in the middle (not the crust) all over with a fork to help lessen the puffing. Be very careful not to poke all the way through.
- You'll want to bake the crust a little before adding the toppings. After you pre bake it for 7-8 minutes, gently press the dough down in the middle to deflate, being careful not to puncture it fully.
- Anytime you're pouring liquid onto dough, there could be some leakage (whether it's in my recipe or others). I've made this several times with much success, but once in a while, it does leak. If this happens, I simply bake it, cut off the egg that leaked, and enjoy it all the same. Once you cut off the leaked egg (don't worry, the eggs cook and solidify in the oven), it basically looks the same. UPDATE: I reduced the eggs from the original 5 down to 3 upon retesting and had the same delicious results, minus the leakage!
Can I make this in advance?
While it’s still tasty when reheated, puff pastry is definitely at its very best when consumed right away. You’ll lose that flaky, crispy texture that we all love once you refrigerate it. That said, you can shred your cheese and cook the bacon in advance.
How long does this last in the refrigerator?
These will last up to 3 days in an airtight container in your fridge.
Can you freeze this?
This is not the ideal dish to freeze.
Can I use other pizza toppings?
Definitely feel free to switch out the same amount of other toppings and/or cheese. I bet things like bell peppers, onion, sausage, and olives would be fantastic!
Is breakfast pizza healthy?
Not really. It’s not terrible, but I wouldn’t call this health food. But everything in moderation, amirite?!
What kind of sauce do you put on breakfast pizza?
I don’t use sauce on this, although hot sauce is always a welcome add-on. Think of it as a white pizza!

Puff Pastry Breakfast Pizza recipe
- 1 frozen puff pastry sheet thawed as per package directions (I use Pepperidge Farms, which contains two puff pastry sheets)
- Flour, optional to sprinkle on your rolling pin if needed
- 3 eggs,
- 3 Tablespoons milk
- Salt and pepper to taste
- ½ cup cheddar cheese, shredded
- ½ cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
- 4 slices bacon, fried until crisp, crumbled and divided in half
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
- Measure parchment paper to sheet pan size and place on clean surface.
- Roll out the puff pastry dough so that it's slightly thinner and there are no cracks (you can fix any cracks with a bit of water).
- Fold the edges over slightly to create a crust, and use a bit of water to adhere them.
- Gently prick the inside of the dough with a fork all over. Be careful not to pierce it al the way through.
- Transfer the parchment paper to a baking pan and bake for about 8-10 minutes. The dough should look puffy and golden brown. Make sure you don't under-cook this part.
- While the dough pre bakes, whisk the eggs and milk with salt and pepper to taste. Make sure to mix them well.
- When the dough is out of the oven, use a fork to gently press the puffy inside of the dough with the back of the fork to deflate the middle so that the crust stands a bit taller.
- Sprinkle cheese onto inside of Puff Pastry sheet.
- Carefully pour the egg mixture evenly on top of this and sprinkle with the bacon. The egg will look like it isn't much, but it expands as it cooks.
- Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the egg is set. Serve immediately.
