Author Notes

Ever since college, I’ve definitely been a “cold leftover pizza for breakfast” kind of girl, but when there’s no leftover pizza in the fridge, it’s easy enough to quickly bake up this delicious bacon and eggs pizza in the morning. Borrowing traditional breakfast flavors of bacon, cheese and eggs, my breakfast pizza gets an additional kick from the fresh basil, scallions and garlic.

Recipe adapted from The Fresh Eggs Daily Cookbook by Lisa Steele (HarperCollins, 2022).

What You'll Need
  • 8 pieces bacon, rough chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 16 ounces pizza dough
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 15 cooked sausage slices
  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella, sliced
  • 5 eggs
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 6 fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • Freshly grated black pepper
  • Grated Parmesan cheese, for garnish
  • Hot sauce, optional
  • Cornmeal for dusting
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees with the rack in the middle. Brush a pizza pan or baking sheet with olive oil.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the bacon and garlic until both are lightly browned, but not crispy yet. Season with pepper and transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
  3. Dust the cornmeal onto a clean surface and roll out the dough into a circle. Fit into the pizza pan and brush with the Tablespoon of olive oil. Top with the bacon mixture, sausage and mozzarella.
  4. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until the edges of the crust just start to brown. Remove from the oven and without breaking the yolks, carefully crack the eggs onto the pizza, spacing them out evenly.
  5. Bake the pizza for an additional 8 to 10 minutes until the egg whites are cooked, the yolks still partially runny, the cheese melty and bubbling, and the outer edges of the pizza crust nicely browned.
  6. Garnish with the scallions and basil leaves. Grate some fresh Parmesan over the top, then sprinkle with red pepper flakes. Drizzle with additional olive oil and hot sauce, if desired.
