FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

What is Breakfast Pizza?

Breakfast Pizza is a pizza-style dish that is typically eaten for breakfast. It usually consists of a pizza crust topped with scrambled eggs, cheese, and breakfast meats such as bacon, sausage, or ham. Vegetables like peppers, onions, and tomatoes may also be added for extra flavor!

Can I use a homemade pizza dough for breakfast pizza?

You can use a homemade pizza pizza dough or a store bough pizza dough ball. This breakfast pizza can also be made in a more traditional round shape if you prefer.

Could I use crescent roll dough for breakfast pizza instead of pizza dough?

Two cans of crescent roll dough sheets can be used instead of the pizza dough. Just make sure you push the seams together really well.

I can’t find Libbys Sausage Gravy, what do I do?

If you can’t find this canned sausage gravy, you can always purchase a packet of white pepper gravy and make it per the packet’s instructions and add some cooked breakfast sausage to it. Or try making my Homemade Sausage Gravy.

Could I use other cheeses?

Use any shredded cheese you enjoy. Cheddar cheese, mozzarella, gouda and pepper jack are all good options.

Help, I can’t find the store bought bagged bacon pieces!

You can usually find the packets of bacon near where the other salad toppings are located in your grocery store. If you still can’t find it, you can fry up some slices of bacon and crumble them. With most recipes, bacon should be measured with your heart. It’s like garlic. Use as little or as much as you like!

My scrambled eggs turned out rubbery, what did I do wrong?

Don’t scramble your eggs too fast! This is a huge mistake for most cooks when it comes to scrambling eggs. If they cook too fast (because the heat is too high) they turn out rubbery. Just cook them gently at a low to medium heat in a nonstick pan. Gently scrape the bottom and the sides of the pan with a wooden or plastic spatula and move them around as they cook. You want the eggs to be softly scrambled.

Can this be made ahead of time?

Yes, you can make Breakfast Pizza ahead of time and store it (covered) in the fridge or freezer. To reheat, simply bake the pizza in the oven until heated through.

How do I store leftovers?

Leftover slices can be stored in an airtight container and will keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
Leftover breakfast pizza can also be frozen. Just wrap tightly in plastic wrap then wrap in foil. It can be kept frozen for up to 3 months.
To reheat, you can warm up individual slices in the microwave (covered with a paper towel) until heated through. Or slices can be put into a toaster oven until reheated.

HOW TO MAKE THE BEST BREAKFAST PIZZA:

Preheat oven to 425F degrees. Spray a large baking sheet (10″x 15″) with nonstick cooking spray. Spread the pizza crust into the pan. Stretch it out to all the edges. Brush olive oil evenly on top of the crust. Poke the crust really well with a fork (this will keep it from puffing up too much.)

Bake the crust for about 7 minutes on a middle rack. It should just start to be getting very light brown in color.

While crust is baking, start making the scrambled eggs. In a medium-sized bowl, add eggs, salt, pepper and milk. Whisk eggs really well for at least 2 minutes to get it combined.

Preheat a pan on low to medium heat. Add butter. Once butter is melted, pour in the egg mixture. Gently scramble the eggs. The key to good scrambled eggs is to not cook them too fast or else they get rubbery. So just slowly move the eggs around until softly scrambled and fluffy. Turn off heat.

When crust is ready, remove it from the oven. Spread the sausage gravy evenly over the crust.

    I can’t believe how good this turned out! I usually get the breakfast pizza they sell at Walmart but let me tell you, it has NOTHING on this recipe. Yes, it’s a bit more work but it is worth it. Outstanding!!

  2. 5 stars
    I saw breakfast pizza as a fast food option while getting my cup of tea the other day so I thought I would try it at home. I used eggs, cheese and bacon. The pizza was delicious!!! I will make this again, thanks for the recipe!!

  3. 5 stars
    I have been making breakfast pizza for 25 years every Christmas morning and always try something new. This recipe was one of the easiest and by far the most delicious and the family was raving about it and wanted more the next day. Highly recommend this recipe

  4. I want to make this for my boyfriend on Christmas morning, but he’s vegetarian. What might be a good alternative for the sausage gravy? For bacon, I’m just use plant based bacon. Just unsure how to navigate the sausage gravy.

      1. Thank you!!! I look forward to trying this on Christmas morning with the vegetarian substitutions. I’ll be happy to report back how it turns out.

    1. I successfully made a vegetarian version for my bocooking. I started with making the sausage gravy with 2 packages of vegetarian sausage and smashing them into pieces, following the recipe link shared when I asked about making this vegetarian (though I only used about 2 1/2 cups of milk) I bought vegetarian bacon and broke it up into pieces before cooking it. Once that was all ready, I followed the exact recipe and it came out really well. My boyfriend had three slices already lol. Thank you!! It’s a lot of fun expanding my skills in the kitchen and learning about making things vegetarian. Cooking is also a great way to show love. Thank you again.

  5. 5 stars
    It is so delicious! It was definitely a hit with my family. The only thing I might do differently next time is pre bake the crust a little longer. It wasn’t as crisp as we would like and the middle pieces kept losing toppings HA! But otherwise, it was delicious!

  6. 5 stars
    I’ve found that if you cut the pizza crust in half and make 2 pizzas on the same cookie sheet it cooks quicker and more evenly. Especially if you pile on the toppings.

  7. 5 stars
    This is an excellent recipe. I made it for our friends prior to going to a football game and everyone loved it. Thank you

  8. 5 stars
    Very good! will definitely be making it again.
    The only change I made… I only had 1% milk to make the sausage gravy.

  9. 5 stars
    Super easy to make! It was also very delicious! My family and I enjoyed this and I will be saving this recipe to make it again!

  10. 5 stars
    Giiirrllll!This was a huge hit this morning! I was trying to use what I had so I ended up making a bacon gravy, but next go around I am definitely going to get that sausage gravy. Deeeelicious ❤️

  11. I used basil pesto as a thin base and included sweet sopresetta and Mexican three cheese blend. No need to add any salt.

  12. 5 stars
    Much enjoyed. Thank you for the recipe.
    I was introduced to my first Breakfast Pizza at a small country store in Northern NH while camping up in the mountains. I just wanted a nice hot cup of coffee but saw it and thought I would give it a try.. Wow! It was great!
    For those who want to try it and don’t have a pizza crust handy try english muffins. They make a nice simple alternative.
    For those who don’t like sausage gravy you can make it with no gravy at all. Just crumble up some bacon or sausage instead.
    Enjoy!!

    I just made this for our dinner tonight and it’s really yummy. My husband & I both enjoyed it! It will be going in my “Keeper” file for sure! Thanks for sharing it. 🙂
