Here is a rustic savory pizza that reminds me of the French country side..I usually make this recipe with pizza dough and cook it on a pizza stone that I keep in my oven. I have developed this recipe using puff pastry to make it easier for those of you who don’t want to spend the time making fresh pizza dough. In case you want¬† use fresh pizza dough, it is available in many of the high end grocery stores and Italian delis.


  • Thaw puff pastry and roll out one of the rectangle pieces in the package.
  • Cook the green beans in salted water until just tender.
  • Place the rolled out dough on a well oiled baking sheet.
  • Spread the tomato sauce over the entire surface of the puff pastry.
  • Sprinkle the beans, tuna fish, olives and basil over the sauce.
  • Arrange the anchovy fillets on top.
  • Make a 3 separate hollow’s evenly on the pizza and carefully crack an egg into each hollow.
  • Arrange the slices of fresh mozzarella around the eggs.
  • Sprinkle with Parmesan.
  • Bake in a pre-heated 425 degree oven until cheese is melted and crust is golden. 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Garnish and serve.
