You guys know I’m “Team Sweet Breakfast” most of the time. In fact, I have a protein waffle almost every morning. And these banana blender pancakes are a major favorite too. But there are those times I want a morning meal that’s warm, savory, and filling. For a satisfying savory breakfast I either whip up my breakfast tacos, breakfast casserole or this breakfast pizza.
How Do You Make Breakfast Pizza?
Making a breakfast-style pizza is way easier than you might think! Start by preheating the oven and preparing your baking pan. Then, take a package of refrigerated pizza dough (I used Pillsbury, but feel free to make your own pizza dough if you like) and press it onto the baking pan. Bake the crust for about 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, beat eggs, milk and pesto together. Heat a large skillet with a little oil or nonstick cooking spray and scramble the pesto-flavored eggs until they are just cooked through but still nice and soft. They’ll cook a little more in the oven later, so keep them just a tad on the undercooked side.
Spread the remaining pesto over the baked crust. Top the pesto layer with the eggs, mozzarella, tomato slices and any other ingredients you might want. Crumbled bacon would be a fabulous addition.
Already this pizza is shaping up to look pretty amazing!
After about 10 minutes more in the oven and a sprinkle of fresh basil, your breakfast pizza will look and taste SO scrumptious! Cut yourself a nice, big slice, and enjoy!
Trust me when I say that this breakfast pizza will earn you major brownie points with anyone you serve it to.
“Kids, it’s time for breakfast!”
“What are we having, Mom?”
“It’s PIZZA for breakfast!”
Total cool Mom status, right?
Breakfast Pizza Variations:
We kept our breakfast pizza pretty basic (eggs, pesto, cheese and tomato) knowing we have a few picky kids, but there are so many options for breakfast pizza topping combos. Here are a few…
- Caramelized Onion, Goat Cheese and Prosciutto
- Avocado, Tomato, Cilantro and Eggs
- Spinach, Ricotta, Eggs and Bacon
- Bell Peppers, Egg, Bacon and Hashbrowns
- Sausage, Cheddar Cheese and Eggs
Storing & Making Ahead:
How to store breakfast pizza? Just like regular pizza, we recommend placing any leftovers in zip-top bags or a container with a lid. Store in the fridge for up to 4 days. Reheat by microwaving for about 30 seconds or reheat in a toaster oven or oven for 3-5 minutes at 375ºF.
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 350ºF, place the pizza on a baking sheet and bake until hot and cheese has melted; about 5-7 minutes.
