Egg & Bacon Breakfast Pizza

Last updated on February 9th, 2024 at 03:59 pm

Good morning, what are you eating for breakfast today? 

I don’t know about all of you but I get bored of the same breakfast every day. Most days, I call breakfast a cup of coffee, piece of toast, or a pot of yogurt on the go. Don’t get me wrong I love breakfast. It’s actually one of my favorite meals of the day just not during the week when I am busy. I love getting up on the weekend and making a special family breakfast that we can have all together at the table. I want my kids to grow up remember my weekend breakfasts as special family time. 

I actually prefer breakfast for dinner. When I was in college and living on my own I used to eat breakfast for dinner all the time. Scrambles eggs were a frequent to my dinner table. I was too lazy to cook a full meal for one and who doesn’t love a good bowl of cereal at night too? It’s fast, easy and fills me up. I still do it when the kids are asleep and Mr P is out of town. Another favorite breakfast for dinner or the weekend for us are crepes. I am notorious for whipping up a batch of homemade crepes on a whim.  Now, I get to add egg & bacon breakfast pizza to my list. Egg & Bacon Breakfast Pizza RecipeI love being in my momma’s kitchen here in the states baking up a storm. It’s also great to have more people testing out my creations than I do at home. I think my neighbors have far given up on me as guinea pigs. Even the office staff at my husband company has had their fill. My parents are welcoming it with open arms for the summer. My Dad said this was fantastic but he would have liked some onions in it. So I take that on board and my mom preferred the eggs runny and I think I liked it a little more overcooked for a soft egg yolk. It’s great to get feedback when you are trying recipes out.  Egg & Bacon Breakfast Pizza RecipeLike all my recipes, it’s fast, easy, and the kids love it too. Family friendly recipes is all I make. I am no chef but I like to play around in the kitchen. I can’t wait to try this out for one of our family weekend mornings or dinner one night back home with Mr P.

I was surprised at how much MM loved this pizza as she hates normal pizza. I think I have put it down to no tomato sauce on this pizza like normal pizza. She loved the cottage cheese creaminess of this style pizza. Sadly, B couldn’t try it as he is allergic to eggs but we made him a little bacon one too that he gobbled up.

Recipe Notes

If you like onions in your breakfast why not add them to your breakfast pizza too. I love this with red onions too.

Egg & Bacon Breakfast Pizza RecipeI think the green peppers add great flavor to the pizza and I agree with my Dad, onions would have been great too. It’s pizza whether it’s for breakfast or not, you can put anything on a pizza. I might even try it with some hash browns or sausage on it one day. There is so many variations you could do with it. A versatile recipe is a must in my house as it’s usually whatever is in the fridge thrown together; as a parent this is so important. Egg & Bacon Breakfast Pizza RecipeHave you made different variations to pizza before? Or do you have a weekend breakfast ritual with your family? I would love to hear about them below… leave me comment. Please if you try my recipe out, let me know what you think.

    • I have ate my fair share of dessert pizzas so thought why not breakfast??? A few alternatives next time I make it like adding onions maybe. But turned out great. Thank you.

  1. Yum, I reckon N would love this too. He’s not a fan of pizza, he’s only just really started eating it, But anything different for breakfast he likes.

  2. That looks really nice! I used to take breakfast for dinner too far & actually eat cereal for dinner! #sharewithme

  3. Love this idea! Breakfast food is something I crave during the day as well, so this is just perfect! And the fact that you attest to it being so kid-friendly is another bonus. I can’t wait to try this with Little Lady! Thank you for sharing, Jenny and for having us on #sharewithme. Hope you’re enjoying your time Stateside!

  4. I love breakfast for dinner! It always feels a bit naughty somehow having a bowl of cereal for dinner but sometimes there’s nothing better 🙂

  5. Wowzers pizza for breakfast that had never even occurred to me but now I’ve seen this I’m going to be all over this idea Jenny – thanks for sharing! #sharewithme

  6. A very fun idea 🙂 And a great way to get kids excited for breakfast!

    I also love breakfast for dinner– especially when my husband is out and its just me. I will cook complicated meals for the two of us, but when its just me, I just can’t get excited about it!

  7. This is basically my idea of heaven! We’re making pizzas tonight, as it happens. I think it’s a great way to get Gwenn involved. x


  8. Great recipe thank you! I’m always on the look out for new things to make for the kiddies. Not sure I could manage it for brekkie though – but I might make it for tea! Thanks!

    • It really does and I can’t count the numerous variations of breakfast I have whipped up for dinner time. Glad you like the sound of it. Let me know if you try it and what you think.

    • Oh yes it was by accident. My littlest, MM never can wait for me to get done taking photos of food before she has her little paws in the food. I think one piece I was trying to take a photo of on a plate and she bite it first. But sometimes they make better photos. lol Thank you.

    • It really turned out a family favorite. I have already thought of about six more ways to make this and eat it for a variety of dinners or weekend breakfast times. Thank you.

  9. Fab idea, It looks amazing. My other half would love if I cooked that for breakfast (I’m not much of a cook!)
    Becky xx

    • Thank you Becky, it turned out delicious and I was so pleased everyone liked it even MM who hates normal pizza. All my recipes are easy and fast so if I can do it you could promise. 🙂

    • I love a good thin crust pizza now but I used to always go for deep dish. I have made a few different ones and I love how versatile pizza is. Thanks. Let me know if you try it out.

  10. wow Jenny this looks amazing, I am definitely going to have to try this over the holidays for myself and my boys #ShareWithMe

    • Oh thank you ever so much Helen. It turned out delicious. The boys will love it I promise and it’s super easy and quick to make. My kind of recipe.

  11. Wow Pizza for breakfast, I think I’d LOVE that! I’ve recently found american pancakes & i’m obsessed with having these for breakfast at the weekend, but I think I now have another great breakfast idea! Thanks! #recipeoftheweek

    • Breakfast is the best all day long. I am a huge pancake and crepe lover too. I am always trying to create yummy recipes with breakfast in mind. Thank you.

  12. This looks incredible! Such an interesting idea for breakfast 🙂 I might have to give it a go myself. #sharewithme xx

    • Definitely try it out and throw on it whatever you love for breakfast. So many options to choose from too. Let me know if you do and what you think. Thank you for your lovely comment.

    • Thanks babes, I will have to come over and bake it for you sometime although it’s so simple even Mads could do it. The kids love helping with this recipe as they get to crack the eggs in the little cheese wells. Try it. Enjoy.

    • Well that just means I am doing something right. lol They could be better but all my food props are at home. lol 😉 The pizza turned out fantastic though. My Dad loved it. If you try it out let me knwo what you think babes.

  13. Hmm, I never considered a pizza for breakfast before, but it does look yummy, I have to admit, especially with a runny egg, that would be my choice. Will have to give this a go, though neither my hubby, nor Becky are big fans of pizzas (strange, right?), so I might just have to use myself and baby Alex as guinea pigs, though that’s no hardship – more for us! x #ShareWithMe

    • Oh no you should try it for the whole family there is no red pizza sauce or anything so it’s very creamy and cheesy. My daughter hates pizza but loves this. My mom loves it runny yolk on top but I like it a bit more cooked. Let me know if you do try it out and what you thought?

  14. That pizza looks incredible! You really have been busy in the kitchen recently. I love that you use US measurements – we don’t get ‘cups’ here often! 😉 x

    • Oh this is one of my favorite recipes that I made and it came out so good. I really love how it can be for a weekend Sunday breakfast or eating breakfast for dinner. Either way it’s a firm favorite in the family now. (minus B due to allergies of course). Thanks Donna.
