This savory bacon breakfast pizza is a fun twist on a classic breakfast! It’s loaded with crisp bacon and melty cheese, and topped with eggs. So delicious!
With the holiday season fast approaching, it’s time to start thinking about those holiday menus! One of my favorite parts of the holiday season is that when the kids are off school and my husband is off work, we get to have special breakfasts as a family.
At the same time, I don’t want to spend the whole morning in the kitchen cooking – I’d rather be spending it with my family instead! I love breakfast recipes that are incredibly delicious, but still quick and easy to make. This bacon breakfast pizza is just that! It only takes about 30 minutes to make, and it tastes so good that everyone will be begging for more. I love that it has the flavors of all my favorite breakfast foods, but in pizza form. It’s such a fun and unique breakfast!
How to Make Breakfast Pizza
Since bacon is the star of the show with this pizza, it’s important to choose a good bacon! I love cooking with Oscar Mayer Bacon because it always tastes great, and the quality is excellent. It’s made from carefully selected cuts that are hand trimmed for premium, consistent quality. The bacon is sugar cured and naturally smoked with real Wisconsin hardwoods. It cooks up perfectly every time! I used Oscar Mayer Naturally Hardwood Smoked Bacon for this bacon breakfast pizza, and it turned out so, so good!
To make the pizza, start by cooking your Oscar Mayer Bacon according to the package directions. Let it cool, then chop it coarsely. You’ll definitely want some bigger chunks of bacon mixed in so you can enjoy all of that delicious flavor! Shape your pizza dough into a twelve inch circle, then brush it generously with olive oil. I used homemade pizza dough this time, but store bought works great too! I like to bake mine on a piece of parchment so it’s easy to slide it in and out of the oven.
Next, top the dough with shredded cheese, leaving open spaces to crack the eggs into. Crack the eggs carefully, so that the yolks stay intact. Sprinkle the eggs with salt and pepper, then pile on all of the delicious Oscar Mayer Bacon. It looks fantastic already!
Bake the bacon breakfast pizza in a super hot oven for 9-10 minutes, or until the eggs are set and the crust is golden brown. I like to bake mine on a pizza stone, the important part is to put the pizza stone in the oven as it preheats, so it gets really hot. The combination of the hot oven and the hot pizza stone will give the crust an amazing texture – crisp on the outside and soft in the middle. Yum!
This bacon breakfast pizza has all the delicious flavors of a classic breakfast, but in pizza form. What could be better than that? Eggs and Oscar Mayer Bacon were just made for each other, and they taste even better when combined on a pizza. This pizza is so delicious and easy to make, and perfect for any special occasion or holiday breakfast!
