Bacon and Eggs Breakfast Pizza gives an entirely new meaning to having pizza for breakfast. The creamy scrambled eggs and homemade gravy make the perfect pizza combination.
Plan Ahead for Easy Preparation
This pizza works really well if you make the toppings and dough the night before. That means that you’ll just need to get up, roll out the dough, top it and throw it in the oven.
The worst part is trying to cook bacon to save it for later. Wow, that’s super tough, but you can do it!
Is Breakfast Pizza Good for You?
This breakfast pizza includes lots of protein, so it makes a good start to a long day. You won’t be hungry right away.
While it’s not exactly super healthy, it’s certainly better for you than a bowl of sugary cereal.
How to Make Pizza Dough from Scratch
I prefer the homemade pizza dough I make in the bread machine. Making your own pizza dough is fairly painless with my bread machine recipe.
Use my pizza dough instructions or your own or even the pre-packaged completed dough, if you prefer. If you’re using homemade pizza dough, try to refrigerate it for at least 4 hours or overnight.
This recipe calls for one-half the pizza dough so you’ll be able to use the other half for another pizza. Check out all my pizza recipes and you can have another pizza for dinner the same night!
Do You Precook Bacon for Pizza?
Always precook meat, including bacon, when making a pizza. Pizza cooks fairly quickly and there isn’t enough time to cook bacon completely.
I’ve used Turkey Bacon for this pizza, but you can use any bacon you like. You could even use bacon bits that you would typically use for salads or baked potatoes.
Using Fresh Tomatoes
Because tomatoes are so wet, I’ve suggested Roma tomatoes. Before you use them, scoop out the insides. That’s where most of the water resides.
Just scoop that center part out and discard. You’ll be using only the meat of the tomato.
The preference in tomato variety in this bacon and eggs pizza would be the same as looking for low moisture tomatoes for canning. You’re looking for low moisture tomatoes with more meat and less water.
You can read about the low moisture varieties at Practical Self Reliance.
This doesn’t mean that you can’t use a nice beefsteak tomato. In that case, you would need to make sure to get rid of as much water as possible so you don’t water down your pizza. Drain it on paper towels, if necessary.
If you like, you can pre-cook your pizza dough a little before adding the toppings. It wasn’t necessary for this thinner crust but, if you prefer a thicker crust, it may not cook all the way and will be a little “doughy” in the middle.

Make Cream Sauce
