This Breakfast Pizza Recipe gives an entirely new meaning to having pizza for breakfast. This pizza combines bacon, eggs and a gravy base for a delicious handmade pizza experience in the morning or any other time of day.
Plan Ahead for Easy Preparation
This Breakfast Pizza Recipe 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!
Homemade Pizza Dough
I prefer the homemade pizza dough I make in the bread machine. The recipe for Homemade Pizza Dough is here. If you want to make your own dough, I recommend that you check out that recipe because it’s in the bread machine and SO EASY!
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.
Recipe Using Tomatoes in Breakfast Pizza
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 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. 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.
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.
