Recipe for Breakfast Pizza

Breakfast pizza is good for breakfast or brunch or even dinner! We love having breakfast for dinner because it mixes things up a little.

While it’s easy to order pizza in or buy a pre-made crust, it’s so much better to make your own. Do you know how simple (and tasty) it is to make homemade pizza crust? It can be done in under 30 minutes if you use instant yeast!

Not only do you control the ingredients when you make pizza crust at home, but it tastes better too. It’s softer and chewier and you get to control how crispy the edges get. Making dough at home has never been faster; whether you want to make dinner rolls, breadsticks, or even just white bread, baking with yeast is simple and produces a much better tasting result than if you bought something at the store.

Ingredients Needed

  • Pizza Crust – see below for how to make a homemade crust or use a store bought one. To make homemade pizza dough you need Instant Yeast (Rapid Rise), all-purpose flour, sugar, salt, water, and oil.
  • Toppings: Making a breakfast pizza has so many possibilities: use whatever toppings you love for breakfast. Our favorites are cooked bacon and eggs. But you can also add onions, tomatoes, mushrooms – anything you like!

How to make Breakfast Pizza

  • Make your pizza dough: Mix the dry ingredients together: 1 cup of flour, sugar, salt, and yeast. Add the wet ingredients: hot water and oil. The important part about the wet ingredients is that the water must be hot (between 120°-130°F). Stir until it’s a wet mixture then add more flour and stir until it’s a shaggy dough. Once the dough comes together in a ball, turn it out onto a floured surface and knead, then let rest for 10 minutes.
  • Use a piece of parchment paper and roll out the dough to a 10-12-inch rectangle. Place it on a pizza pan or cookie sheet covered with parchment paper.
  • Pre-bake the crust for about 5-7 minutes in a very hot oven. It’ll start to brown.
  • Top the crust with mozzarella or cheddar cheese and bacon. Make 3 wells in the cheese for the eggs to lay and crack your eggs on top.
  • Brush the edges with olive oil and bake until the cheese is melted and eggs are cooked through, about 5-8 more minutes.

  • I’ve also made this with breakfast sausage and scrambled eggs.
  • Use parmesan cheese, add some spinach, peppers, or even hash browns!
  • Do you use sauce on breakfast pizza? I chose not to use pizza sauce but you could top this with my homemade pizza sauce or pesto! Or you can even use sausage gravy!
  • Drizzle the top with hot sauce or even a cheese sauce!

Breakfast Pizza Tips

  • If using bacon or sausage, be sure to cook it first over medium heat in a large or nonstick skillet, then drain the fat.
  • Use a very hot oven: For a perfectly crispy and browned pizza preheat your oven to 500°F. Place your pizza pan or pizza stone (or a rimmed baking sheet) in the oven to preheat.
  • Use a pre-made crust if you prefer – Pillsbury dough, or from the deli, or even Boboli or make a crescent roll pizza!
  • You can make your crust up to 24 hours ahead and store covered in the refrigerator. The pizza with eggs is best served immediately.

  • Preheat oven to 500°F. Place pizza pan or rimmed baking sheet in the oven to preheat.
  • Combine 1 cup flour, undissolved yeast, sugar, and salt in a large bowl. Add very warm water and oil; stir until well blended, about 1 minute. Gradually add enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Dough should form ball and be slightly sticky. Knead dough for about 4 minutes on a floured surface, until it is smooth and elastic. Cover and rest for 10 minutes.
  • While the dough is resting, cook the bacon to very crisp. Drain and crumble.
  • Stretch and pat dough with floured hands to a 10 to 12-inch circle. Place on parchment paper. Bake for 6 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with cheese, top with crumbled bacon, and crack the eggs over the top. Note: when cracking the eggs, create little wells of cheese so the egg has a place to sit. Brush the edges of the crust with olive oil.
  • Bake for an additional 6-8 minutes (or until eggs are done to desired consistency and crust is golden).
  • Garnish with chives, slice, and serve while hot.
