Pizza For Breakfast...Yes, Please!

The Best Breakfast Pizza

I read the other day that a nutritionist said that eating pizza for breakfast was sometimes healthier than eating cereal. They said pizza has more protein, and if it had veggies on it, then it's even better. You can check out that article here

Day-old pizza is great, but if you want a legit, delicious pizza made specifically for breakfast, then try out this recipe from Ree Drummond, also known as The Pioneer Woman. I make this often for breakfast and dinner and it never disappoints. You can really make it your own with substitutions (make it vegan with a tofu scramble and veggie bacon on a cauliflower crust! or make it slightly healthier by using turkey bacon!). This is perfect to make on the weekend, for something a little special!

2 tablespoons chopped onion

1 small clove garlic, minced

1/2 jalapeno pepper, thinly sliced

1/4 teaspoon sugar

12 ounces fresh mozzarella, sliced

8 large eggs

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper


  1. Make the salsa: Combine the whole tomatoes with their juices, diced tomatoes, cilantro, onion, garlic, jalapeno, sugar, cumin, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and the lime juice in a food processor or blender. Pulse several times until it reaches the consistency you like. Set aside.
  2. Prepare the pizza: Place the oven rack in the lowest position and preheat to 475 degrees F. Fry the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat, turning occasionally, until chewy, about 8 minutes; drain on paper towels. Chop into bite-size pieces.
  3. Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a separate large skillet over medium-high heat; add the frozen hash browns and cook, stirring occasionally, until they just start turning golden brown, about 7 minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside. In the same skillet, fry the red and green peppers in the remaining 1 tablespoon vegetable oil over
  4. medium-high heat until they're nice and brown, about 5 minutes. Set aside.
  5. Roll out the pizza dough on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Spread 1/2 cup salsa over the dough, then evenly distribute the sliced mozzarella over the salsa. Sprinkle with the hash browns, bell peppers, and bacon.
  6. Next comes the fun part! Make 8 little wells in the filling here and there all over the surface of the pizza; crack the eggs into the wells. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Bake until the crust is golden brown and the eggs are set but still slightly soft, about 15 minutes. Cut into large pieces and serve with the remaining salsa.
