Breakfast Pizza

by Erin

Start your day with breakfast pizza! Topped with hash browns, crispy bacon, cheddar cheese, and eggs cracked right on top before a quick bake in the oven.

Sometimes I really dislike that I don’t force myself to wake up earlier than 30 minutes before I need to be out the door because it prevents me from eating things other than cereal and bagels for breakfast. Last night I had one of those moments and decided to make up for it by having breakfast for dinner with this breakfast pizza.

I made this breakfast pizza once before when I first saw it on Smitten Kitchen, and it was wonderful. This time around I wanted to change up the toppings a little bit and decided to add some hash brown potatoes from Simply Potatoes.

As with any breakfast, you cannot go wrong serving it with some crispy potatoes, and the same applies to breakfast pizza. Even though they didn’t get as crispy, it’s not their fault – they were surrounded by cheese after all! The potatoes added a great texture to the pizza toppings, and made the breakfast pizza complete.

In the directions you will notice that it says to crack the eggs over the pizza after you have transferred it to the pizza stone. This is not a mistake. I changed it from the original recipe, because the process of shaking the pizza from the peel onto the stone makes the eggs slide all over the place.

However, if you are going to be using a pizza/sheet pan instead of the peel/stone then go ahead and put the egg on before putting in the oven. I’ve done it both ways and with homemade or store-bought pizza dough and it’s all good!

Feel free to get creative with the toppings too. Change up the cheese, swap bacon for veggie sausage, whatever you want! I have even made an everything bagel breakfast pizza.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 500 degrees 30 minutes before you're ready to bake your pizza, with a pizza stone placed on the bottom rack.
  2. On a lightly floured countertop, pat the dough into a disc with your fingertips, then drape the dough over your fists and carefully stretch it from beneath to form a 12-inch circle (or fit to a baking sheet).
  3. Generously dust the surface of a pizza peel (or large inverted sheet pan)* with cornmeal and place the stretched dough on it. Sprinkle the dough with the potatoes, cheddar and bacon.
  4. Shake the pizza peel slightly to make sure the dough is not sticking. Carefully lift any sections that are sticking and sprinkle a bit more cornmeal underneath, then slide the pizza directly onto the baking stone in one quick forward-and-back motion. Crack 3 to 4 eggs over the top of the pizza and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Bake for 8-10 minutes, rotating after 5 minutes. When the crust is golden, the cheese is melted and the egg yolks are cooked, use the peel to transfer the pizza to a cutting board. Sprinkle with parsley. Let cool for 2 minutes, slice and serve immediately.

Notes

*If you do not have a pizza peel and/or stone, do these steps on the pizza pan or baking sheet you will be cooking the pizza on.

Wow these look so good. I also tried making a breakfast pizza on pita bread, which also worked out great. I highly recommend it :)

Breakfast and pizza together? Two of my favorite things in one :) I’m usually too hungry to spend time making anything more complicated than cereal when I wake up but I might make an exception for this!

Sounds so amazing! I am not a huge breakfast eater, mainly b/c the BF isn’t and I don’t like to make extra food, but this could change both our minds. I love the potato addition too!

Can’t say that I am really a fan of sunny side up eggs, however this does look delish! Maybe I’ll try it with scrambled eggs!

I have done it with scrambled before actually, really good! Just make sure the crust has a good edge so it doesn’t run off.
