Puff Pastry Breakfast Pizza {Perfect for Spring Brunch}

  It's no secret that I'm a fan of How Sweet Eat's puff pastry pizzas. They are a real go to for me. Always delicious. Always impressive. Always quick and easy. Always minimal ingredients. This is my kind of recipe!

This breakfast version is a real favorite and all you need is about five ingredients: puff pastry, shredded cheese, bacon, eggs, something green (chives, green onion, chopped spinach), and salt and pepper.

Listen folks...this is so easy. Spread out the thawed puff pastry, spread with egg wash, sprinkle with cheese, top with bacon, eggs, and greenery, sprinkle with salt and pepper and bake.

When you pull this out of the oven people will ooh and ahh and start taking pictures with their phone. This is so impressive coming out of the oven. The pastry puffs up real big, the bacon baked into the pastry, and the eggs look so very inviting.

The pizza is light and airy, the eggs cook perfectly, and the cheese and bacon bake right into the puff pastry. It is a truly incredible dish and again, it is so easy. There's no reason not to make it!

Serves 4-6

2 sheets thawed puff pastry

8 slices bacon+1 teaspoon water whisked together, for egg wash

6 ounces sharp white cheddar cheese, freshly grated

6 large eggs, 

freshly ground black pepper

3 tablespoons fresh snipped chives for topping

Preheat the oven to 425F. Set the puff pastry out to thaw if it has been in the freezer.

Heat a skillet over medium-low heat and cook the bacon. You can chop it up to cook quicker or you can fry it in slices. You want it almost completely cooked - the fat rendered - but not burnt or crispy because it will still cook in the oven.

Place the puff pastry sheets on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Very slightly roll up the edges of the pastry to create a bit of an edge for the crust. Brush the pastry with the egg wash.

Sprinkle the grated cheddar over the pastry. Add on chopped spinach, if you like. Add on the bacon. Crack each egg separately into a bowl, then gently pour it onto the pastry. Sprinkle everything with black pepper.
