I used to make this bacon breakfast pizza for my morning drivers when I worked at a delivery place. And they just loved it. Breakfast pizza is a quick and easy eye-opener that appeals to all ages. —Cathy Shortall, Easton, Maryland

Ingredients

  • 1 tube (13.8 ounces) refrigerated pizza crust
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 package (3 ounces) bacon bits
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Unroll and press dough onto bottom and 1/2 in. up sides of a greased 15x10x1-in. pan. Prick thoroughly with a fork; brush with 1 tablespoon oil. Bake until lightly browned, 7-8 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk together eggs and water. In a nonstick skillet, heat remaining oil over medium heat. Add eggs; cook and stir just until thickened and no liquid egg remains. Spoon over crust. Sprinkle with bacon bits and cheeses.
  3. Bake until cheese is melted, 5-7 minutes.

Bacon Breakfast Pizza Tips

Is breakfast pizza a Midwestern thing?

Casey’s General Store, a convenience store chain in Iowa, is famous for their breakfast pizza, which they introduced in 2001. The popularity of breakfast pizzas has spread across the country and can be enjoyed at any time of day!

Should bacon be cooked before putting it on pizza?

Yes, bacon should be cooked before putting it on pizza for two reasons: pizza has a short bake time so the bacon wouldn’t cook through and the uncooked bacon would make the pizza greasy.

Which is the best cheese for pizza?

The best cheese for pizza is one that has great meltability and elasticity. That puts mozzarella at the top of the list for most people. But other options include provolone, cheddar, Colby, Edam and Gruyere. Want more breakfast pizza options?
