Pizza for breakfast?  Yes please!  I could, without a doubt, eat pizza for breakfast every day.  I know there is conflicting information out there…is pizza a breakfast food?  Do you eat it hot or cold?  And so on.  This recipe, however, is specifically for BREAKFAST pizza, so you can’t go wrong!

The recipe can be found here.

The crust is made of hash browns, not a traditional pizza crust.  It gives it a nice crunch while also including a favorite breakfast item in the recipe.  The top is loaded with eggs, cheese, and the veggies of your choice.  You can bake the eggs to meet your taste; bake a little longer for no runny yolk or bake a little less for a runny yolk.  Don’t like bell peppers but love mushrooms?  Skip the peppers and use mushrooms.  Get the idea?  The recipe does list specific ingredients, but you can substitute to meet your needs.

Start by preheating the oven to 425 degrees F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and lightly spritz it with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, combine the THAWED hash browns, 2 eggs. ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese, ½ tsp salt, and ¼ tsp black pepper.  Mix until well combined.

Pour the mixture onto the baking sheet and use a spatula or your hands to flatten it into a thin layer that is oval shaped.  This is going to be the pizza crust.

Bake the crust for 20 minutes or until golden brown.

While the crust is baking, chop the bell pepper and onion (or whatever veggies you choose to use).

Remove the crust from the oven.  Sprinkle ¼ cup of shredded cheddar cheese and ¼ cup shredded mozzarella cheese over the top.

Crack 6 eggs on top of the cheese, in various places (not on top of each other).  You want them to be spread out amongst the crust.

Sprinkle the bell pepper and onion (or other veggies) over the eggs.  Season with salt and pepper.

Bake for an additional 15-20 minutes or until the eggs are cooked to the desired consistency.  Towards the end of baking, you will want to watch the eggs.  As mentioned previously, bake longer for no runny yolk, and bake less for runny yolk.

Remove from the oven.  Slice into squares and serve warm.  Season with additional salt and pepper as needed.  Enjoy!

There you have it!  Pizza for breakfast…or breakfast for dinner…. whatever time of day you feel like devouring this recipe 😊

Happy Cooking!
