This Bacon Breakfast Pizza is a cheesy breakfast recipe topped with eggs, bacon and your favorite breakfast ingredients! It’s simple, quick, and is easily customized based off of your favorite ingredients.
Sometimes I want something quick and light for breakfast, and other times I want something warm, savory, and filling. This breakfast pizza is perfect for satisfying those cravings. Our breakfast burritos and breakfast tacos also have similar ingredients!
Bacon, eggs, and cheese
I’ve discussed many a time how much we love breakfast recipes!! They’re our favorite, and we often enjoy them for dinner since our mornings are usually pretty crazy. Today’s recipe is a new one that we just LOVE! It’s a Bacon Breakfast Pizza that is so stinkin’ simple that we’ve had it 3 times in the last month.
We love this pizza for so many reasons. It combines all the delicious flavors we love for breakfast, including eggs, bacon, and cheese, all combined on a pizza crust. Not only is it delicious, but it’s done in about 20 minutes. It’s also a recipe the whole family can enjoy.
Add some olive oil to the dough and pierce with a fork. Bake for 7 – 8 minutes.
How to make Breakfast Pizza
This recipe is so EASY! Let me show you how it’s made…
CRUST. You can make a homemade pizza dough if you’d like, but it’s obviously more work, so we typically use the pre-made canned pizza crust. Spread this out and brush with a little bit of olive oil. Poke fork thought out the dough and bake for 7-8 minutes.
BACON. While the dough is baking, cook the bacon in a pan. Once cooked, remove bacon from pan and leave the grease in there. Chop up the bacon and set it aside.
EGGS. Place eggs in a bowl and whisk together. Pour into the greased pan and cook until done. If you want Perfect Scrambled Eggs, check out the recipe HERE. Note: With the drippings and little pieces of bacon in the grease, this will add some color to your eggs. You can start fresh with the eggs and not use the drippings, or you can clean this out a bit first.
TOP & BAKE. Spoon the eggs over the crust, sprinkle with cheese and bacon and bake for 4-5 more minutes.
We kept our Breakfast Pizza pretty basic (eggs, bacon and cheese) knowing we have a few picky kids, but there are so many options for breakfast pizza topping combos. Here are a few…
- Asparagus, Goat Cheese and Eggs
- Avocado & Eggs
- Kale, Ricotta, Egg & Bacon
- Bell Peppers, Egg, Bacon & Hashbrowns
- Sausage, Apple, Thyme & Eggs
STORING & making ahead
How to store breakfast pizza? Just like regular pizza, we recommend placing any leftovers in Ziploc bags/containers and placing in the fridge for up to 3-4 days. Reheat by placing in the microwaving or reheating in the oven on a low temp.
Can I make this ahead of time and freeze for later? To freeze, bake the pizza crust for 7 minutes. Do not over bake. Place cooked ingredients on top and sprinkle with cheese. (Undercook the scrambled eggs. Leaving them a bit runny will make them less likely to become rubbery when baked.)
Once the crust and toppings have cooled, place the pizza on a freezer safe aluminum baking tray or a clean piece of cardboard and flash freeze for about 2 hours. Remove from freezer and wrap tightly with plastic wrap, then again with aluminum foil. Label and freeze for 3-6 months.
To reheat, place pizza in the fridge the night before to thaw. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, place the pizza on a baking sheet and bake until hot and cheese has melted; about 5-7 minutes.
As usual, this can be changed up any way you like it. You can add sausage instead, or different kinds of cheeses for different flavors. I think it would also be great served as a Mexican Breakfast Pizza and add some green chiles and salsa. No matter how you make this, it’s guaranteed to be a hit and one that hopefully you can add to the Meal Plan since it’s simple and delicious. 😀
