I am so excited to have partnered with Cabot Cheese to share this cheesy and delicious breakfast pizza!

Ingredients

My family loves a good pizza any time of day… including for breakfast! But what better way to bring pizza to the breakfast table than with one topped with eggs, sausage and heaps of cheese?!

    • CHEESE: For the perfect breakfast blend, I’ve topped this pizza with Cabot Pepper Jack for some kick and Cabot Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese for a rich flavor!  Cabot cheeses are naturally lactose free, naturally aged and truly delicious! Cabot has been a co-operative for over 100 years! These cheeses really take the pizza to the next level by adding so much great flavor.
  • Ingredients for Homemade Pizza Sauce

 

  • CRUST:  Use store bought pizza crust to make this extra quick!
  • SAUCE: The cheeses add so much flavor to this recipe so we’ve just brushed the pizza with olive oil.

Breakfast Pizza Toppings

My favorite toppings are listed in the recipe but the possibilities are endless! Sneak in some extra veggies or use up your leftovers!

  • Meat: ham, Canadian bacon, ground beef
  • Veggies: jalapeños, mushrooms, potatoes (or leftover home fries), tomatoes, red onions

How To Make Breakfast Pizza

This homemade breakfast pizza is so simple to make in just a few easy steps!

    1. Brush prepared dough (or homemade dough) with a bit of olive oil and bake for about 7-8 minutes (or until lightly browned).
    2. Top dough and top with lightly scrambled eggs and remaining ingredients.
    3. Bake until the cheese is melted.

Top with a sprinkle of parsley and cut into squares for the perfect breakfast! Serve this with a fresh fruit salad.

Leftovers?

Leftover breakfast pizza can be treated just like a classic margherita pizza, all the way down to eating it cold if you want to!

Keep the slices stored flat in a zippered bag or a casserole dish covered with plastic wrap in the refrigerator. When ready to reheat, simply pop it in the microwave just like regular pizza!  Breakfast pizza, or any leftover pizza, is also a perfect lunchbox meal for the kids or an easy at work snack!

  1. This is absolutely amazing!!! I make it for all the holiday breakfasts. Make 2! It always goes. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!!! It is a new forever favorite!!!5 stars

  2. I made it was so good , the only thing I did different was ,I added some hollandaise sauce on it, thank you for the recipe.5 stars

  3. Hi Holly, I wanted to let you know that I made this Friday night for our dinner and it was a huge hit!! My husband loved it… so it’s definitely going into my keeper file. I still need to practice on the crust but that’s okay because it didn’t affect the wonderful taste of the breakfast pizza! Thanks again. :)5 stars

  4. This looks AMAZING!! :) And easy to make too… Do you use Pillsbury canned pizza crust in this recipe?? Would appreciate knowing so when I try it; I haven’t been able to get the same results as yours when using the canned crust; as far as the really nice edge that you have on yours!! Any help you could give me would be really appreciated! Thanks again.5 stars

    1. I did use Pillsbury in this recipe and have made it twice this week! My pan size is 10″ x 15″, here’s exactly how I prepared the crust.

    2. Place a bit of olive oil in the pan and use a pastry brush to oil the pan.
      Unroll the crust into the pan and gently press it to the edges pressing a little bit extra so it goes just above the rim of the pan.
      Gently roll the edges down to create a nice-looking edge. I slightly tucked it under in the corners and evened it out.
      Brush with olive oil and bake in a preheated oven for about 8 minutes. It may bubble up in the center a bit but since it’s not cooked through, you can gently press any bubbles down.
      Top with your favorite toppings, lots of yummy Cabot cheese and finish baking.
    3. I hope that helps! Let us know how it works out for you Tess!

      1. Thanks so much for all the information Holly!!! Very helpful!! Will definitely be trying it soon and let u know how much we liked it! :)5 stars

      2. Hi Holly,

        I made this for our dinner tonight, and it was a big hit! My hubby loved it! Definitely going into the “keeper” file even though my crust still needs practice. :) Thanks for another great recipe.5 stars

    4. This recipe looks amazing, I can’t wait to try it!
      What is the skillet you’re using to cook the eggs in?

      1. The skillet is one I bought at a local supermarket and it doesn’t have a brand name on it.
