5 Breakfast Pizza Recipes

Mexican Breakfast Pizza

You have probably heard of a breakfast burrito filled with scrambled eggs, sausage, and peppers. Well, let us introduce you to the breakfast burritos cousin, Breakfast de Mexicana Pizza.

This breakfast pizza is by far the easiest on the list to make. You can use a tortilla or flatbread as the pizza base so no need to mess around with anything special like yeast-less pizza dough.

To make our Mexican Breakfast Pizza, you will need:


  • 1 Tablespoon minced onion
  • 1 Tablespoon minced jalapeño (seeds removed)
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped cilantro

First, you want to sauté the onion and peppers for a couple of minutes til they start to soften. Then add the chopped breakfast sausage links if you are using them. Next, crack the eggs in a bowl and whisk them together, then pour them into the mix.

Cook until scrambled. We like our scrambled eggs fully cooked, but if you like them softer, some people like their eggs runnier, and that’s fine. When eggs are scrambled how you like them put them on a plate and set aside.

Place the tortilla in the skillet without oil. Flip a few times, so both sides are warm. Spread the black beans on the tortilla and keep it in the pan but on medium to low.

Then add the scrambled eggs and sprinkle with cheese. Turn off the burner and cover until the cheese is melted. Cut in fours and sprinkle with a mix of minced onions, cilantro, and jalapeños.

Vegetarian Pizza Quiche

This vegetarian breakfast pizza omelet is for the Chicago deep dish lovers out there. It is a cross between a deep-dish pizza, a quiche, and a frittata. This breakfast pizza is a bit more time-consuming, so it is perfect for a lazy weekend morning.

What you will need for a Vegetarian Pizza Quiche

First, combine the onion, mushrooms, and red peppers in a skillet with a splash of oil and sauté til soft, then set aside. Take out your deep dish pizza pan and roll out your dough, and press in the greased pizza pan. Par-bake the crust for about 5 minutes at 400º F. 

After five minutes, remove the dough and add a thin layer of tomato paste to the crust, then crack four eggs into a bowl and whisk. Pour the eggs into the crust and add in sautéd veggies.

Put back in the oven uncovered for 10 minutes. Remove and sprinkle the cheese on top and arrange cherry tomatoes in a design. We like to use cherry tomatoes to make a fun design on top. 

Next, return the whole shebang to the oven and let the cheese melt. Depending on how deep your pan is, you might need to adjust cooking times. Slice and serve your vegetarian pizza omelet.

Lox Breakfast Pizza

This one is easy but elegant, perfect when you are trying to impress someone. You can make this with pizza dough or flatbread. Just keep the base on the thin side, not St. Louis-style pizza thin, just thinner than a regular crust.

What you will need.

For convenience, we like to use a flatbread or a par-baked pizza crust that we sometimes have in the freezer. Warm up the flatbread in the oven for 5-8 minutes. Then remove and spread an even layer of cream cheese.

Lay down the lox. Sprinkle a few capers and a bit of fresh dill. Voila, fancy enough for brunch but easy enough for any skill level. This is a sophisticated way to enjoy homemade pizza for breakfast.

Leftover Pizza Mash

We rarely have leftover pizza in our house, but when we do, we like to make leftover pizza mash. It’s an easy way to make homemade pizza for breakfast without having to turn on the oven. Just take the leftover pizza, scrape all of the cheese and toppings off and chop.

Then scramble some eggs and add the chopped toppings and cheese and scramble all together. You can eat it by itself or serve the egg mash on top of the bare pizza crusts. So if there is any pizza left over after a pizza night, give this pizza-inspired breakfast item a try.

Chaffle Breakfast Pizza with Bacon

Of course, one of our breakfast pizzas has to have bacon. Is it really breakfast without bacon? This recipe is perfect for anyone eating low-carb or following the keto diet. Beyond breakfast, try some other low carb pizza snacks. Feel free to substitute any meat with bacon.

Chaffles are waffles made from eggs and cheese and make a great breakfast pizza base. For this, you will need.

Mix ingredients, pour them into the waffle maker, and make chaffles. This will make two breakfast-sized pizza chaffles. Top each chaffle with tomato sauce, more cheese, and bacon slices. (You can also crumble the bacon and sprinkle blue cheese.) Slice into pizza wedges, and you have yourself a unique breakfast pizza.
