Breakfast Pizza

A true breakfast pizza is a little like an omelet on a pizza crust. To get the basic idea, here is how to make a simple breakfast pizza:

Lightly scramble two eggs, making sure not to overcook them (they should still be just slightly runny). Layer them on top of your pizza dough. Add green peppers, onions, and diced tomatoes. Add some bacon bits, ham, or sausage. Sprinkle with some cheddar and American cheeses. Bake as usual. If you find that your eggs are browning too much, then add a layer of cheese directly onto the eggs, to cover them and keep them from becoming overdone.

Just as with any other pizza, you can vary the ingredients to your heart’s content. Here are some great ingredients to try on your breakfast pizza:

  • Green chili
  • Mushrooms
  • Green onions
  • Broccoli
  • Pan fried potatoes
  • Sliced sausage links
  • Sliced ham
  • Cooked bacon
  • Salami
  • Salsa
  • Jalapeno slices
  • Feta cheese
  • Goat cheese
  • Sliced Roma tomatoes
  • Avocado slices
  • Pineapple
