A breakfast pizza sporting all your favorite breakfast toppings is a brunch favorite that will please all your guests.
Happy Monday friends! I hope you all had a great weekend. I had an amazing time in New York City this past weekend and I can’t wait to share it with you soon. But first, I’ve been waiting to share this Breakfast Pizza with you like a little kid on Christmas morning. It’s freaking amazing!!! You know how you stumble upon a great idea and you just want to scream it at the top of your lungs? Yeah, it’s this Breakfast Pizza.
I am sure most of you already know about breakfast pizzas but this is my first time discovering this genius idea. Of course, I enjoy pizza and we make homemade pizza all the time, but for some reason I never thought of trying it for breakfast or with breakfast toppings. It’s an easy change from the usual with so many different possibilities for toppings.
I am not usually a big breakfast fan and always go for the easy grab-and-go things while the hubs is all about sitting down and enjoying the whole she-bang. No one got time for that during the week. But once in a while over the weekend, I slow down and appreciate the value of a good brunch with him 🙂 After a quick morning trip to the flea market recently, I made us this breakfast pizza with a few of our favorite breakfast toppings.
We’re lucky and grateful to have the choice to eat light or enjoy a big Sunday brunch, but the reality is, not every family is waking up to food every day.
Millions of families and kids are struggling with hunger all across America, which is why Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign is so important. It’s a national fundraising and awareness campaign that focuses on helping children; the ones that are most severely affected by hunger in the U.S.

- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and set rack to the lowest level. Grease a pizza pan or baking sheet with olive oil. Using floured hands, pat the dough gently into the prepared pizza pan OR roll out dough on a well-floured surfaced into a 12-inch circle. Transfer dough to greased pan. Form a rim by pinching edge of dough; prick surface with a fork.
- Bake crust for 8 minutes. Remove from oven and top with cheese. Then add bacon, spinach, peppers and onions. Sprinkle the whole pizza with salt and pepper. Crack the eggs on top of the pizza and place again in oven. Bake for 10-15 minutes until eggs are set and crust is browned.
