This puff pastry pizza is going to become your new favorite way to eat pizza! Featuring a puff pastry crust instead of traditional pizza dough, and topped with your favorite pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, and some delicious pizza toppings, this is just like a regular pizza but with puff pastry instead! This pizza recipe is loaded with spinach, chicken, bell pepper, tomatoes, and feta cheese as toppings and this combination is such a win! I know that pizza toppings is a heated debate among most people though - so feel free to use your favorites in place of mine. I promise I won't judge too harshly!

Is puff pastry good for pizza?

Yes! Of course puff pastry is good for pizza - otherwise I wouldn't be sharing this recipe. The puff pastry is lighter and thinner than a traditional pizza dough - making this pizza perfect for lunches and light dinners, or to serve as an appetizer.

Is puff pastry the same as pizza dough?

Not even close! Puff pastry is made by layering dough and butter to create a light and airy pastry that is very flaky. Pizzas dough is like a chewy bread. They are made completely differently, and the end result is completely different as well.

Is puff pastry pizza healthy?

The short answer is no - this pizza has a puff pastry crust which gets its signature flakiness and flavor from butter and salt which aren't known for their health benefits. You can definitely load up your puff pastry pizza with lots of healthy toppings like I did though to achieve some balance! 

What are the ingredients in Puff Pastry Pizza?

There are only a few important ingredients in this pizza recipe, and the rest can be customized to how you like your pizza:

  • Puff Pastry - This is the most important ingredient - I like to get the frozen ones that come rolled up in a spiral because most of the rolling pin work is done that way and they are faster to thaw
  • Pizza Sauce - I like to use a small amount of tomato sauce on my pizza, but you can use whatever you prefer
  • Mozzarella cheese - I like to buy "pizza mozzarella" because it has just a bit more stretch
  • Other toppings - I chose to use spinach, cubed chicken, diced bell pepper, chopped tomato, and feta cheese, and I highly recommend it but you can use whatever your favorite pizza toppings are.
  • Balsamic glaze - apart from making it look nice, drizzling a bit of this perfectly complements the chicken and feta in this pizza recipe

How to make puff pastry pizza?

You make puff pastry pizza like any other pizza, except using a puff pastry sheet:

Step one: start by preheating your oven to 400 F, and grease a baking sheet lightly with olive oil

Step two: roll the puff pastry out on a floured surface to fit in the baking sheet, then carefully transfer it to the prepared pan

Step three: spread pizza sauce onto the puff pastry sheet, leaving about 1/2 inch on all sides for the "crust"

Step four: sprinkle spinach, followed by mozzarella cheese, then bell pepper, tomato, chicken, and feta cheese

Step five: bake in preheated oven about 20 minutes, or until the crust is just golden

Step six: drizzle with balsamic glaze, then slice and serve warm

How long does puff pastry pizza take to cook?

I cook for about 20 minutes at 400 F - but this can vary slightly depending on each oven and the brand of puff pastry used. Start peeking after about 15 minutes and only take it out when the mozzarella cheese is bubbly and the crust has a nice golden color

How to reheat puff pastry pizza?

This puff pizza stores very well in the fridge for a few days or the freezer for a few months. It can be reheated nicely in the oven. Simply place slices on a baking sheet and bake at 350 for about 5-10 minutes until pizza is warm again

Can you freeze puff pastry pizza?

Yes, once the pizza is cooked you can freeze it - however you should not re-freeze uncooked puff pastry. I like to wrap the pizza with saran wrap followed by tin foil for best storage in the freezer.

This was great! I made the mistake of lumping the dough in a ball before rolling it out. I started over, and it looked much nicer 😁

Uh-oh, there's no dough-lumping required! I buy it pre rolled to save the step of rolling it out now. I am glad you enjoyed it!
