Pizza for breakfast? You don’t have to ask me twice. I’m THERE.
I made this breakfast pizza for Hubs and I on a Saturday morning, and I have to be honest: while I didn’t finish my whole pizza, I was so full I wanted to crawl back into my cozy bed, wake up, eat pizza, and repeat. Hey, I’m a girl that loves her food and sleep!
Back to the pizza.
What I love about this recipe is the different layers of textures and flavors: crunchy bacon, sweet caramelized onions, soft potatoes, zesty salsa and crispy kale, topped with an over medium egg. Use whatever is available to you in your fridge – leftover sausage, veggies, you name it. The sky is your limit!
This recipe is all about prepping. Once you have your ingredients in place, it’s just like painting a pretty picture. Start with your canvas (dough), then layer on the different colors (toppings). And just like art, there is no perfect breakfast pizza. If it tastes delicious to you, why then, it’s perfect.
In the emergency of the egg white running down the sides of the pizza (oops!), just build a dam of toppings to contain it.
Once the pizzas are in the oven, pour yourself a cup of coffee/tea and ease into your morning. You’re about to have a fantastic day. 🙂
I’d love to know what toppings you used in your breakfast pizza. Any favorites?
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/4 whole sweet onion, chopped
- 4 mini potatoes (or 1 small potato), chopped
- Salt and pepper
- 1 store-bought pizza dough
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 3/4 cup salsa
- 3 slices turkey bacon, cooked and chopped
- 4 ounces mozzarella
- 2 large eggs
- 1 kale leaf, stem removed and chopped
- Preheat oven to 475 F degrees. Spray a pizza pan (or baking sheet) with cooking spray.
- In a medium pan over medium-high heat, drizzle the olive oil and add the onions and potatoes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and saute until the onions are slightly caramelized (~8-10 minutes).
- Meanwhile, divide the pizza dough into two equal parts. Spread each out on the pizza sheet.
- Equally press the minced garlic into the pizza dough, then spread the salsa, followed by the potatoes and onions, turkey bacon and mozzarella.
- In each pizza make one little "well" to hold the egg. Crack the egg into each well, then sprinkle the pizza with the chopped kale and salt and pepper.
- Bake the breakfast pizzas for 15 minutes, or until the crust is golden. Cut into wedges and enjoy!
