Breakfast pizza is pizza in the broadest sense of the word and belongs to the same part of the vast pizza universe as dessert pizza. But don't let your past beliefs about pizza stop you from trying this recipe, which ends up being a tasty way to get carbs, scrambled eggs, and bacon in your mouth in an efficient, but also very fun, way.
How do you make breakfast pizza?
To make a breakfast pizza, spread store-bought dough into a baking pan, pre-bake, then top with cheese, any toppings, lightly beaten eggs, and crumbled, crispy bacon before baking a second time to make the pizza Cheese melts and all the flavors blend together.
The entire process only takes about 30 minutes of hands-on work, and you can shave off that time even more by cooking and crumbling the bacon beforehand. Store in the fridge until ready to use (up to a few days).
How to fill your breakfast pizza
For our breakfast pizza, we add sautéed onions and peppers for added flavor and color, but you can go many different directions. Think about your favorite pizza toppings and try them here. Mushrooms, spinach, canned artichokes, olives, sliced jalapeños, or even a dash of ricotta or pesto work well. Instead of bacon, try cooked crumbled breakfast sausage, Mexican chorizo, or vegetable sausage.
How to serve breakfast pizza
Breakfast pizza truly is the ultimate all-in-one breakfast that doesn't need much on the side other than maybe a glass of orange juice or some fruit salad. While people of all ages love breakfast pizza, this is the perfect breakfast to serve to kids in the morning after a sleepover, perhaps without the onions and peppers if you're dealing with picky eaters.
Tips for making breakfast pizza
- Cooking the bacon in the oven is less messy than cooking it on the stovetop, and you can cook more slices at once. However, if you prefer, you can cook the bacon in a pan.
- This recipe was designed for thick-cut bacon. If you use thin slices, check after 14 minutes if they are done.
- Pre-baking the pizza crust is the key to a perfectly baked crust without overcooking the eggs and bacon.
- When scrambling the eggs, it's okay to undercook them a little. They are baked on top of the pizza in the oven.
