We’ve all had cold pizza for breakfast at some point in our lives (…right?), but intentionally making pizza for breakfast is a whole other ballgame. Breakfast foods taste surprisingly good in pizza form (especially eggs!) and there are so many other fun ingredients you can add to the mix. So if you’re pizza-obsessed like me, or just want to change up your weekend breakfast or brunch routine, you’ve got to make a breakfast pizza. It’s also perfect for brinner (breakfast for dinner)!

What’s on a Breakfast Pizza

There are no real rules when it comes to pizza. But in order to confidently call this a breakfast pizza, it’s got to have some classic breakfast ingredients, like bacon and eggs. The rest is totally open to interpretation! Use any crust you’d like (classic pizza crust, thin crust, a tortilla, crescent rolls, etc.), use red pizza sauce, white sauce, or go sauceless, use any type of cheese you like, and go wild with the leftovers in your fridge for even more toppings!

What Else Can I add?

I’ve kept the breakfast pizza below pretty simple, but pizzas are always a great opportunity to use up your leftovers. Here are some alternative or additional topping ideas for your breakfast pizza:

  • Bell pepper
  • Onion
  • Ham
  • Spinach
  • Tomato
  • Feta
  • Breakfast sausage
  • Hashbrowns
  • Mushrooms

Basically, anything that you can put in an omelet, you’d can put on a breakfast pizza!

Egg Options

I love a good liquid gold runny egg yolk, but if that’s not your thing, scrambled eggs work great on breakfast pizzas, too. Just make sure to only cook the eggs about halfway, until they’re still quite glossy because they will finish cooking while on top of the pizza in the oven. If you fully cook the eggs before adding them to the pizza, they’ll end up dry and rubbery after the pizza cooks.

Make it More Budget-Friendly

If you’re working on a super tight budget, here are a few ways you can make sure to keep the cost of your breakfast pizza LOW:

  • Make your own dough: the ingredients for pizza dough are as simple as they come, so making it from scratch is always going to be the cheapest option. We’ve got several pizza dough recipes on our website, including classic pizza dough, thin crust, and no-yeast pizza dough. You can even par-bake a tortilla for an ultra-thin and crispy crust!
  • Use less cheese and more eggs: Cheese is the most expensive ingredient on our breakfast pizza, but if you double the amount of eggs to cover more surface of the pizza you can cut back on the cheese by half and still have a delicious pizza!
  • Cut back on the meat: The bacon was the second most expensive ingredient in our breakfast pizza, but you could easily cut the amount of meat in half and supplement with some extra veggies! Using a lower-cost meat, like deli ham or sausage is another great option.

How to Make Breakfast Pizza – Step By Step Photos

Cooked bacon in a skillet.

First, cook 8 oz. bacon in a skillet over medium heat until brown and crispy. Drain the bacon on a paper towel-lined plate. (You can use breakfast sausage in place of bacon, if preferred).

Sauce being spread out on a pizza dough.

Preheat the oven to 450ºF. Stretch a large pizza dough out over a pizza pan, then spread about ½ cup of pizza sauce over the surface of the dough (use more or less sauce to your liking).

Cheese on the pizza, eggs being cracked onto the cheese.

Sprinkle about 2 cups of shredded cheese over the surface of the pizza (we used a mix of cheddar and mozzarella because we’re using up leftovers!). I like to save a handful of the cheese to add on top of the eggs. Crack four eggs onto the pizza, spaced out evenly over the surface.

Bacon and more cheese added to the pizza.

Crumble the bacon over the surface of the pizza, then sprinkle any remaining cheese on top.

Baked breakfast pizza.

Make sure the oven is fully preheated to 450ºF, then bake the pizza for 12-15 minutes, or just until the egg whites are set, the yolks are still soft, and the dough is golden brown around the edges.

Top the pizza with sliced green onions, cut into eight pieces, then enjoy!

  1. Love this site and this pizza looks great…I had a French lady live with me and she always puts eggs on her pizza….So buy a cheese pizza, sprinkle with bacon bits…the good kind ( I buy at Costco) and add some very thinly slice onions sliced onions and peppers, can add mushrooms but have to sauté them before putting on the pizza( otherwise they become watery)…and follow the above directions…about adding eggs…I know some will put up a fuss…but sometimes I do not have the time to make a crust, cook the bacon, etc…I also do a cheese pizza w. slices of romaine tomatoes on top and bake and towards the end add basil and fresh grated part…great margarita pizza and simple and fast.

  2. That’s my go-to pizza order. It’s commonly called an Aussie pizza here… :)

    Thanks for the site, it’s a regular inspiration.

  3. Followed the recipe exactly. I let the classic pizza dough recipe do a three day rise in the fridge. Easy way to take it up a knotch and add a lot of flavor. 

  4. Perfect! I was just thinking the other day how good a fried egg on pizza would be, now I must try this.

  5. This is pretty good, even without cheese (I know, I know, pizza without cheese is a travesty, but I’m lactose-intolerant – I would eat cheese if I could!). Since I only had regular tomato sauce, I threw on a bunch of spices, including some smoked paprika. Yummy!

  6. Another option with eggs, though not a budget option, is to use quail eggs. Being small, they can be cracked so each slice will have its own egg.

  7. O M G !

    This was DELICIOUS!!!! I added some onions and bell peppers for a bit more of a veggie hit, but WOW!!!! It’s all I can do not to eat half the pizza by myself!!!

  8. Yet another wonderful recipe! I always love reading your posts and really inspire me to make the food. Thanks for sharing!

  9. Looks yummy!! I love making breakfast pizza but the only thing I do a little differently is making country gravy (with sausage too if you’d like) and using it as the base instead of tomato sauce. Very delicious! Not exactly totally healthy but once in a while, it’s okay.

  10. I made this recipe today with extra cheese and some breakfast sausage… it was super delicious! Thank you so much for for sharing the recipe. I love your blog. My bf and I are big fans. Keep up the awesome work!!

  11. That looks so tasty. I love eggs! My husband turned me on to what is essentially a cheese pizza, with canned tuna and eggs up on top. It’s wonderful! We’ll add nicoise olives, capers, tomatoes, onion, anything like that that we have on hand. Heaven.

  12. We Australians have eggs and bacon on pizza all the time – in fact it’s called the Aussie Pizza at a lot of chains here. However, we scramble the eggs. Basically, spread sauce on the pizza base, sprinkle with chopped Canadian bacon and scrambled eggs, and top with mozzarella. It’s heavy as anything but so so tasty.

  13. What an original idea! I won’t knock it. I bet it’s delicious! I just bought one of those round pans so I need to try this out.
