Puff Pastry Pizza! The perfect combination of flaky, buttery puff pastry with all your favorite pizza toppings. From quick weeknight dinners to party appetizers, discover the endless possibilities with this easy puff pastry pizza recipe.


  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed according to package directions
  • optional egg wash: 1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/4 cup sauce (tomato sauce, white sauce, pesto, BBQ sauce, etc.)
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella or cheese of choice (or just measure with your heart!)
  • pizza toppings of choice (see notes for some ideas)


  1. Preheat oven: Preheat oven to 400F / 200C. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Cut puff pastry into pieces: Carefully unroll the puff pastry sheet and place on the lined baking sheet.  Using a paring knife, cut the pastry into 4 to 16 pieces (cut into 4 to 6 pieces for lunch or dinner sized slices or into 9, 12 or 16 squares for appetizers or bite size snacks). Spread out on the baking sheet leaving some space between each one.
  3. Score border (optional): For a more defined looking crust, use a paring knife to score a border (about 1 cm or 1/2 inch) around the edge of each square (don’t cut all the way through).  Poke some holes along the center part of each piece with a fork.
  4. Brush on egg wash (optional): Brush egg wash all over the top of each puff pastry square for a shinier, more golden crust.
  5. Prebake crust: Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the pastry begins to puff up and turn a light golden color.  Remove from oven.
  6. Add toppings: Gently press down the centers, leaving the outer edges puffed up.  Spread sauce evenly all over the center of each puff pastry square, leaving a crust around the edges.  Top with cheese and pizza toppings of choice.
  7. Bake: Place back in oven and bake for another 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly.
