Breakfast Pizza

Looking for something different in your breakfast routine? This breakfast pizza is a snap to make (with no-rise wheat pizza crust) and offers a filling start to your day!

Breakfast Pizza

Crust Recipe - From Amy at The Finer Things in Life

1 T yeast
1 C really warm water (but not too hot that it kills the yeast -- that is, not boiling!)
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
2 T olive oil
1.5 C whole wheat flour
1 C white flour


4-6 eggs, scrambled
4 strips of bacon, diced
1/2 green bell pepper, diced
4 oz. mushrooms, diced
4 oz. extra sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

Prepare the crust by mixing warm water, sugar and yeast in a small bowl. Allow yeast mix to sit while you mix the dry ingredients together. Then add oil and salt to the yeast mixture and stir.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ones, and stir to combine. Knead the dough (about 5 minutes) on a lightly floured surface until firm.

Cover and set dough aside for 5-10 minutes while you prepare the veggies. Setting the dough aside for a few minutes helps make the dough easy to roll out into a pizza.

Slice the mushrooms and dice the green peppers. You may also be interested in adding: onions, tomatoes, red or yellow peppers, etc! Then, preheat the oven to 425.

Then, roll the pizza out to fit your pizza tray! I got all excited about being able to make round pizza, only to realize that we have a rectangular pizza tray.... oops! The dough makes 1-16 inch pizza.

Place the pizza dough on a greased pizza sheet, or on an ungreased pizza stone. Top with veggies.

Bake the pizza for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, mix up the eggs with salt and pepper to taste, and scramble them. Dice the bacon and shred the cheese while the pizza is baking.

Remove the pizza from the oven, and top with eggs and cheese.

Return the pizza to bake for an addition 10ish minutes, until cheese is melty :) While the pizza finishes baking, cook the bacon until crispy! When the pizza is done, top with bacon.

Slice and serve.

ps - don't you love the brown dishes? They're my new "score" :) LOVE them.

  1. I LOVE breakfast pizza, but have never tried making it at home. I wonder if you could make it even simpler and use crescent rolls for the crust (left in one big sheet, of course).

  2. Yum! This looks great. Was the cheese enough to keep the eggs from drying out, or do you recommend under-cooking the eggs compared to how you usually prefer them?

  3. Heidi - yes, the pizza would likely be great with crescent rolls as a dough.

    Rae - you can under cook the eggs just a bit to avoid drying.

  4. Wow. This looks so great! Really delish!

  5. Ok, now this looks like something I simply MUST try.

  6. Definitely looks delicious! Thanks for sharing.

  7. Looks delicious! Love all the fresh veggies on there! I will have to try this one weekend- thanks for the creative twist on pizza crust!

  8. I bet you could even prep it the night before and do the last 10 minutes in the a.m. for a quick breakfast. Might be worth a try! I'm excited for a new breakfast option!

  9. Looks yummy! I am going to try it!


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
