Breakfast Pizza With Eggs and Bacon
373 days agoSkip to recipe
This Breakfast Pizza With Eggs and Bacon recipe originated from tailgating for Buffalo Bills football games. Our friends would roll out crusts, top them with cream cheese, and add tons of scrambled eggs, bacon and sausage. I lightened it up by including more egg whites, controlling the amount of cheese and using a thin pizza crust. Even with these changes, the taste and flavors are perfect for breakfast or a brunch.
I love breakfast food and I love pizza, so this is a win-win in my book. It is my favorite go-to breakfast pizza because it is so simple to make and I almost always have all the ingredients on hand. It is a delicious centerpiece for a holiday brunch table, lazy Saturday morning breakfast or prepped ahead to have on the go.
Of course, Cutco has the tools necessary to pull this all together. The Mix-Stir really does a great job of blending the eggs and egg whites.
For chopping the bacon, you could use a Chef Knife or Santoku, but I like to snip the strips of bacon with Cutco’s Super Shears.
Use the Spatula Spreader to spread the cream cheese on the pizza crust and the Pizza Cutter to cut the pizza into slices.
The recipe serves eight but you can decide how big you want the slices. Cut them smaller if you are serving a breakfast buffet or, if you’re extra hungry, go big!
There are lots of ways to switch up this breakfast pizza to hit your nutrition goals. Try it with a cauliflower crust, fat-free cheese, chicken breakfast sausage or turkey bacon.
Sink your teeth into cheesy bacon and eggs on top of a crispy pizza crust. This may become your favorite breakfast recipe!
