Passover Pizza Souffle

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 30 mins

I've been making this for years, but never seemed to put it up here on Zaar. I Googled myself today (painful) and this recipe came up, I had submitted it to a discussion list about 10 years ago.


  1. Lightly butter a 9 x 13 inch pan.
  2. Wet the matzos lightly with water.
  3. Fit 2 1/2 matzos on the bottom of the pan.
  4. Cover the matzos with half of the tomato sauce and arrange the sliced cheese over the sauce.
  5. Cover the cheese with the remaining matzos and pour the remaining sauce over the whole thing.
  6. Sprinkle the top with onion and garlic powder.
  7. Beat the eggs with the milk and pour this over the matzos.
  8. Bake in a preheated 375 degree F oven for 30 minutes or until the custard is set.
  9. Let rest for 10 minutes before cutting into serving portions.

This was great. I added some diced onions and sliced mushrooms and also halved the recipe with no problem. Mine wasn't a souffle at all, but the egg helped hold it all together. Thanks Mirj!

Made this almost as directed--used a whole pound of mozzarella and put an extra layer of cheese on top. Needed to cook an extra 15 minutes and covered with aluminum foil to prevent burning.<br/>Yummy! One of my daughters really liked it; the other said it was okay, but I liked it enough to give it 5 stars. Thanks, Mirj!

OMG...what an absolute treat! I love pizza and make one every year during Passover, using a muffin recipe as a base for the crust. However, this year I wanted something different and thought I would give this a try. I used some of the suggestions of others and it was wonderful. I too, used a mixture of cheddar and mozzarello cheeses and also added some diced onions, but I read the recipe wrong and made it like lasagne.

I followed the recipe layering the matzo, sauce, cheeses, onions and spices. Then did the same with the last layer of matzo. I also halved the recipe and made it in a 8 x 8 inch pan. This is most definitely a keeper! I loved it! Thank you so very much for sharing this!
