Easy Breakfast Pizza Recipe
I made the very best easy breakfast pizza recipe recently. If I’m honest I’ll tell you that the ladies in my family love breakfast casseroles way more than the guys in my family. Maybe it’s that we don’t mind having ingredients all tied in together, or if the veggies that oftentimes end up in breakfast casseroles throw the guys off – I don’t know, but this one… this one was different.
This breakfast casserole was eaten up within hours. And, what I mean by hours is that I made this breakfast pizza recipe for dinner one night and it was completely gone by breakfast the following morning. Our son, who doesn’t particularly yearn for scrambled eggs had FOUR huge pieces for dinner, even! I was amazed!
And, it’s so easy that it really can be made the morning of – or you could make most of the items the night before and toss together in the morning. This breakfast recipe is so versatile and because I made it with bacon… it’s an instant hit.
Here’s how you make this easy breakfast pizza recipe:
Gather your ingredients:
1 tube (11 -14 oz size, whichever your grocer has) refrigerated pizza crust
2 tablespoons olive oil
6 large eggs
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 pound bacon, baked and crumbled
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
First, you’ll want to make your bacon. I bake my bacon in the oven at 375 degrees for 30 minutes or so using this and this and it’s my favorite way to bake bacon – the bacon is always crisp and it tastes amazing. And, the mess is not nearly as big when cooking bacon this way. I always recommend using parchment paper to bake on. Once your grease dries, then you’ll simply remove the parchment paper and toss it in the garbage.
Isn’t bacon amazing?
Next, unroll your crust onto a greased 15×10 baking sheet. Flatten your dough and build to the edges of your pan. Brush your crust with about one and a half tablespoons of olive oil. Next, prebake your crust at 400° for 7-8 minutes or until lightly browned. You may decide that you want to make your own pizza crust, check out my homemade pizza dough (it’s SO good!)
In a small bowl, whisk eggs and milk and pour into a small skillet, heat remaining oil until hot. Add eggs; cook and stir over medium heat until completely set.
Next, spoon your eggs over the baked crust, following with bacon and your cheeses.
Bake 5-7 minutes longer or until cheese is melted and enjoy!
You won’t regret adding this breakfast pizza to the menu, especially if you want an easy breakfast pizza or pizza for breakfast sounds good (when does it not, really??!)
