breakfast pizza

This scrumptious Breakfast Pizza is loaded with crispy bacon, browned pork sausage, sweet red bell pepper, scallions, scrambled eggs and oodles of cheddar and Pepper Jack Cheese. This is one of our all time favorite family breakfasts and one of my personal favorites because I can brown the sausage and cook the bacon in advance. For a full and satisfying brunch I love to serve this with Fruit Salad, Seven Layer Salad, and Strawberry Mimosas.

How To Make breakfast pizza

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Oil a 10×15 inch rimmed baking sheet.
  • 2
    Work your pizza dough around the baking sheet by pressing gently with your fingers and hands. It may take a little time to work the pizza dough out as it has a tendency to pull back from the sides. Once it seems to be staying put use your hands to tuck and push a little of the dough up against the side of the baking sheet creating a crust. Bake in the oven for 7-8 minutes.
  • 3
    Meanwhile beat the eggs and water together. Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over low heat. Add eggs and cook slowly rotating them gently with a spatula. Be sure to slightly undercook the eggs as they are cooked again in the oven.
  • 4
    Top the eggs with both cheeses, cooked bacon, browned sausage, red pepper and scallions.
  • 5
    Place back in the oven for 10-12 minutes; turning on the broiler the last 1-2 minutes. Rotate the baking sheet several times during the broiling process and stay close by as I have always found broilers somewhat unpredictable.
