Tired of staring into your bowl of Cheerios every morning? Want to switch up breakfast from the usual bacon and eggs to something different, something exciting? But what can you do with the most important meal of the day besides fry something? We’re glad you asked.
I worked in the pizza industry cooking, managing, and delivering for many years. There’s not much you can make out of bread dough that I can’t make. One of those is a breakfast pizza. The variety of breakfast pizza is endless and very tasty. Grab a coffee and check out these recipes.
1. Here’s A Breakfast Pizza Recipe With A Twist You Wouldn’t Have Thought Of Using
I’ve used just about everything as a sauce on a pizza, including Alfredo sauce and a special sauce formulated for a cheeseburger pizza. I’ve used both tomato sauce and garlic white sauce on my breakfast pizzas, but this one was a surprise. You use a can of prepared sausage gravy as a sauce for your breakfast pizza.
This particular recipe calls for bacon and eggs, and you already have sausage in the mix. You can add other meats and veggies as the spirit moves you. That’s the beauty of breakfast pizza: it can be anything you want it to be and still be a crowd pleaser.
2. This Is A Basic Breakfast Pizza Recipe On Which You Can Build Your Own Masterpiece
This recipe uses the eggs themselves as the sauce on the pizza. Partially cook the eggs before constructing your breakfast pizza, as raw eggs won’t cook all the way through beneath the toppings. As I said, this recipe is one on which you can build pizza your way.
You can use all the breakfast meats or add one or two of your own. Any veggie you can think of lends itself well to pizza, including kale and spinach. You can even try different cheeses or a combination of cheeses on your creation. What a way to start the day!
3. This Is More A Cheese Breakfast Pizza Than Anything Else, But, Hey! We’re Not Complaining!
I stumbled across a breakfast pizza recipe that you have to try! It calls for nacho cheese sauce or another cheese sauce like Velveeta as the sauce. Then, of course, you top your pizza, put more cheese on it, and bake it. This recipe is from a local pizza restaurant in Iowa.
I thought the cheese sauce as the pizza sauce was a cool idea. I, personally, use the Velveeta, as I wouldn’t want the cheese sauce to overshadow my toppings. When you try it, let us know how it turned out.
4. What Would The Pillsbury Dough Boy Tell Us About His Breakfast Pizza?
Aunt Jemima offers pancake recipes, Betty Crocker offers mashed potato recipes, so why can’t the Pillsbury Dough Boy tell us his favorite breakfast pizza recipe? Make sure you read the comments before you try it, because almost all of them tell you to pre-bake the crust for a few minutes before you begin.
Some thought the cream cheese was a bad idea, while others not only thought it was a good idea, they added more cheese. Every recipe is adaptable, but remember to read all the way through the whole page first so you don’t miss anything important.
5. This Breakfast Pizza Recipe Uses A Delightful Crust That We Should Have Thought Of Using
I’ve used different things for homemade pizza crusts, such as French bread slices or Texas toast slices for individual pizza slices for the kids. They’re great for snacks or even for Friday nights with a good movie. However, I would not have thought of using shredded hashed browns as a pizza crust.
Although, if people can use riced cauliflower as a pizza crust, why not use shredded hashed browns? This is the kind of recipe to which you can add your own favorites, like a variety of meats, veggies, and cheeses. Partially cook the eggs before topping the pizza, though, so you can be sure everything is cooked thoroughly.
6. No Breakfast Is Complete Without Fried Potatoes. Thus, No Breakfast Pizza is Complete Without Fried Potatoes, Yes?
Cubed, fried potatoes are the perfect addition to breakfast. They just complement the bacon and eggs so well. Since this is the delicious case, why would anyone leave them off their breakfast pizza? Cooking the red and green bell peppers with the potatoes gives the pizza some color and texture.
The recipe calls for the eggs to be cracked into a ramekin and poured onto the pizza as is. If you want to scramble your eggs instead, make sure they’re partially scrambled. They’ll cook the rest of the way in the oven.
7. Breakfast Pizza Pockets – A Breakfast Your Family Will Line Up For Every Time
Lots of kids come home from school and pop a plate of pizza pockets into the microwave for an after-school snack. Want to see their faces light up at breakfast? Make these breakfast pizza pockets, and they will.
Using store-bought pizza dough (Pillsbury makes this) or crescent rolls, you can fill them with breakfast meats, onions, peppers, mushrooms, eggs, and any cheese you wish.
They only take a few minutes to make, and your family will love you for it. Making a batch of them on Sunday night will ensure your family has plenty of go-juice for Monday morning.
8. Don’t You Just Love Party Platters Of Sausage Rolls? How About Trying Breakfast Pizza Rolls?
I can make hors d’oeuvres such as the lettuce, ham, and cream cheese sandwich rolls like a boss. However, I never quite got the hang of making sausage rolls. Had I had this recipe, it would have been a snap. I was using cream cheese on my sausage rolls, so pesto never crossed my mind.
However, I can see how it would add some zip to the recipe. I can also see that this recipe works best when it’s kept simple without adding veggies or multiple meats. Let us know how yours works out.
9. Prepared Or Even Fresh Pizza Dough Isn’t All That Can Be Made Into A Breakfast Pizza. Have You Tried Using Crescent Roll Dough?
When I made mini pizzas for my children when they were small, they were delighted with the Texas toast and French bread slices. I put a spoonful of pizza sauce on them, plenty of cheese, and pepperoni. It was a huge hit. Today, crescent roll dough replaces Texas toast.
You can pack more onto a baking sheet covered in crescent roll dough than you can on individual slices of something. You can press the dough together to make one sheet, or keep the pieces in slice form. Either way, everyone’s favorite fun food is now for breakfast.
10. Here’s A Low-Carb Breakfast Pizza For Our Keto And Low-Carb Lifestyle Cooks
For those requiring gluten-free, keto-friendly, and low-carb foods, we have got a recipe for you. If you need dairy-free ingredients, then try coconut, almond, or oat milk. You can use any vegetables and cheeses compatible with your diet. The beauty of this recipe is that it’s adaptable.
It uses eggs as the “pizza” crust, so get prepared to whisk a dozen eggs. You can even top the “crust” with sauce and pepperoni. The “crust” will be light and fluffy, so poke it down a bit before topping it and putting it back in the oven. You’ll need an oven-safe pan such as a cast-iron skillet.
11. Here’s A Secret To Breakfast Pizza You Might Not Have Known
The first thing you’ll notice when you click on the link is that it’s not a recipe. It’s a link to the food delivery service DoorDash. If you don’t have the time, the energy, or the ingredients to make a breakfast pizza of your own, then order one.
Most pizza shops have found that if you can make a sandwich with it, you can make it into a pizza. Thus, you’ll find Philly cheesesteak breakfast pizzas or gyro breakfast pizzas. Ask your local pizzeria what they can turn into a breakfast pizza.
Also, check with food delivery services GrubHub, UberEats, and PostIt to see if they pick up breakfast pizzas near you.
12. Now That You Know You Can Order A Breakfast Pizza, The Only Decision Left Is From Whom
Once again, clicking the link will get you to a popular Denver eatery menu. The gist of it is to see what’s available for ordering when you haven’t the time to do it yourself. I must say that some of these recipes are very inventive.
Add to that the fact that at the bottom of the menu is a list of toppings for your pizza. Egg is one of them. This could also give you an idea what to put on a breakfast pizza of your own when you do have time to make one.
13. If You’re Looking For A Way To Make Breakfast Scrumptious As Well As Healthy, Then Read On
Turning puff pastry into a pizza crust is the beginning of a healthy breakfast pizza recipe. Use any leftover vegetables like broccoli, asparagus, tomatoes, summer squash, or whatever greens you have on hand. Add your crumbled or shredded beef roast, pork chops, lamb, or chicken next.
Top it all off with two or three of your favorite cheeses before you add your scrambled eggs. The coolest thing about it is that you can slip healthy foods right past your family if you call it a breakfast pizza. They’ll love you for it and ask for more.
14. Did You Know You Can Make A Personal Pan Pizza Into A Breakfast Pizza To Satisfy Those Finicky Taste Buds?
If you have the time and the ingredients, then making personal pan pizza dough is a snap. If you don’t, then grab some focaccia from your local grocery store bakery.
The consistency is the same as a personal pan pizza dough, with the only difference being the amount of olive oil used in the pan in which you bake the pizza. The pan should be a cast-iron skillet or an oven-safe metal pie pan.
The toppings are limited only to your imagination. Try tossing some pineapple on one with bacon, ham, and eggs.
15. We Bet You Didn’t Know You Could Sneak Fresh Fruit Past Your Kids By Using It On A Breakfast Pizza
You know, pineapple isn’t the only fruit that can be used on a pizza, and I’m not talking about dessert pizzas, either. Peaches, kiwi, and strawberries pair well with pork. This recipe calls for sliced strawberries as a topping added to your bacon and eggs.
The recipe calls for just broken eggs. If you don’t like runny eggs, then please soft scramble them. They’ll cook all the way in the oven. By all means, experiment with other fruit and meat combinations for your breakfast pizzas. The kids will be ready for breakfast without you yelling upstairs at them!
16. Are There Not Enough (Or Any) Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, Or Paleo Foods You Can Enjoy? In That Case, Here’s A Breakfast Pizza Just For You
The good thing about this recipe is that the cook offers a recipe for gluten-free and dairy-free dough. If you don’t have the time for it, then she offers an alternative in Cappello’s Naked Pizza Crust, available at any whole foods store.
That’s half the breakfast pizza battle right there. She also includes ideas for toppings, such as using greens along with mushrooms, onions, and eggs. If you don’t like fried eggs, then soft scramble your eggs. They’ll finish cooking in the oven.
17. What’s Your Favorite Egg Dish? Put It On A Breakfast Pizza
Love Eggs Benny? Put it on a breakfast pizza! Using a prepared pizza crust like Boboli saves some time and tastes delish. If you don’t have time to make the Hollandaise sauce yourself, then using a prepared, packaged sauce like Knorr works in a pinch.
Otherwise, just add a little onion, mushroom, bell peppers, and any other veggie you love to your breakfast pizza for a meal your family will ask you for over and over again. You can also add a bit of bacon or crumbled breakfast sausage to the Black Forest ham for a real taste treat.
18. Corned Beef Isn’t Just For Supper Anymore. Try This Corned Beef And Potato Recipe On Your Next Breakfast Pizza
We’ve found a few hashed browns and home fries recipes for our breakfast pizza recipes, but we haven’t found corned beef as a breakfast meat. Lots of people love corned beef and eggs for breakfast, moi included, but I didn’t think of putting it on a breakfast pizza.
All you have to do is brush the pizza crust with a couple tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, bake it for a few minutes, and then top the pizza with Guy Fieri’s corned beef recipe . The recipe includes avocado, cheeses, and veggies, but you can always add in your favorites.
19. Turn Breakfast Burrito Fun Into Breakfast Pizza Pizzazz
The breakfast burrito depends on getting the largest flour tortilla you can find. Luckily for us, a breakfast pizza doesn’t have to be rolled into a burrito. It can also be stuffed, oops, topped with anything extra you roll up in your breakfast burritos.
So follow the recipe until it comes to stuffin’ time, and then place your concoction on a pizza crust brushed with extra virgin olive oil and pre-baked for a few minutes. Read the notes at the end of the recipe for some mouth-watering variations you can use with your breakfast burrito pizza.
20. Peas On A Pizza? Well, Combine It With Prosciutto, And You Have A Great Breakfast Pizza
I can eat prosciutto all day and never get tired of it. Italian sandwiches at the local deli always contain more prosciutto than anything else for me (they always see me coming.) I never thought, though, about putting them on a breakfast pizza until I saw this article.
This cook used green peas and snap peas, but I’m guessing you can sub these for whatever veggie leftovers are in the fridge. If the family isn’t big on asparagus or runny eggs, then sub out what they do like. You’ll have a happy family once they try these flavors!
