Breakfast Pizza 2Pin

I love eggs.

My husband loves eggs.

Our kids LOVE eggs.

There are plenty of reasons for our family’s ouef adoration and whenever we eat eggs in the morning I feel good knowing that my kids are heading out the door to school with a good dose of protein in their bodies. Kenya and Chloe are pretty happy when they see eggs on their breakfast plates, but add the word pizza to the equation and they will certainly tell you I’ve gone gangbuster delicioso!

That’s what happened when I paired two of our families favorites together in this one simple recipe. Breakfast Pizza.

Feel free to make this meal your own and top your pizza with cooked bacon, breakfast sausage, or any of your other preferred breakfast toppings.

While you’re at it, have some early morning fun and get the kids involved in making their own pizza. It’s easy to do and you’ll send everyone off for their day with egg lovin’, happy bellies!

Ingredients  

  • 1 recipe pizza dough
  • 4 large eggs
  • cooked bacon or breakfast sausage, crumbled
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 400°F
  • Cut pizza dough into 4 even pieces and shape each piece into a 5-inch round. Using you fingertips, press the dough down about 1/2 inch from the edge to create a raised crust. This will help prevent the egg from running off the edge.
  • Gently crack 1 egg on top of each pizza dough round, sprinkle with salt, cheese and crumbled bacon or your preferred toppings.**
  • Bake for 12 minutes, or until eggs are set and cheese is melted.
  • *Note: You can also whisk together the eggs and salt and evenly divide the mixture then pour evenly on top of each pizza.

  1. I’ve made these with thick-sliced whole wheat bread and they’re delicious! I just pushed down a depression in the middle of the bread, which held the egg quite well. I also butter the bottom side and place them on parchment paper. I especially like them with mushrooms and some parmesan cheese, but I precook the mushrooms first. Yummy stuff!

  2. […] I could (and do) happily eat the same breakfast repeatedly for months, the kids like variety. This breakfast pizza looks great and has the protein that is hard to fit into a quickie breakfast on the way out the […]

  3. I had a problem with the whole egg running off of the crust too. Little dude ended up with scrabbled eggs and sausage for dinner (he certainly wasn’t complaining though). I wonder if this would work better if the dough was cooked a bit before the eggs were put on? Or if it was one big pizza instead of 4 smaller ones? I will definitely give this recipe a try again – just need to do some tweaking with the dough.

  4. love this recipe, i am allergic to gluten so i made it on different pizza dough but it still turned out being delicous
    could you give more gluten free recipes

  6. This was ok. Nothing special. Had a tough time getting the egg to cook all the way through. More like 25 mins than 12. I partially baked the crust with corners folded up which helped the eggs stay on the crust vs running off the sides. Still the runny centers and extra time to fix was too troublesome. The crust overwhelmed the dish so it was really more like pizza than eggs. I’ll stick with quiche for a baked egg dish.
