Breakfast Pizza!

I have Jen to thank at Bean Town Baker for this mornings breakfast.  Hands down the perfect breakfast in my book – pizza!

I made a whole wheat version of this dough over the weekend – the best part about this dough is that it keeps in the fridge for up to two weeks.  😀

So my base was 4 ounces of whole wheat dough.  I heated my oven to 425 – I like a crispy crust so I pre-bake my dough alone for 5 minutes, then remove and add my toppings.

Breakfast Pizza

  • 1 egg
  • 4 ounces whole wheat dough
  • 1 tablespoon light cream cheese
  • .6 ounce cheddar cheese
  • 1 slice bacon, precooked and crumbled
  • pickled jalapenos (yep, I can take the heat early in the morning!)

Jen’s trick is brilliant – using a biscuit cutter to contain the egg – since this was just for me, I only used one egg.

I just left the cutter on the pizza for about 7 minutes, or until the egg starts to set

out of the oven - the egg is perfect!

It took about 12 or 13 minutes total baking time.

so good!

so good!

I ate the whole thing!  479 calories, 19 fat, 49 carbs, 22 protein, 6 fiber

It was the perfect combination – the crispy crust, creamy yolk, salty bacon.  And I am stuffed!  I think maybe next time I’ll eat half with some fruit – I have a feeling this breakfast is going to keep me full a long time today!

Gotta scoot to work – see you at lunch for more Soupa Azteca and Beef and Bean Quesadilla!

  1. First thing in the morning is the best time to take the heat. What better way to start the day?

  2. That looks delish!

    I can just imagine my husband’s reaction if I made this before going to work! Ha!!

    Is it your regular pizza dough you make?? The no rise kind??

    • Click on the link above – its the Artisan Bread in 5 minutes, I just used white whole wheat flour. The dough only takes a couple hours to rise, then in the fridge lasts up to 2 weeks, just take what you need!

  3. So glad you liked it. This pizza could be made with any combo of breakfast flavors. I need to make it again asap!

  4. LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!

  6. That looks amazing – I’ve never had eggs on a pizza before. I’ll have to convince the hubs to try it!

  7. Wow this is amazing looking, I can’t imagine how exciting it would be to eat this before a long day at work!

  8. Love the whole wheat crust! Looks great. I was expecting a fruit pizza or something, but this looks much better!

  9. I just made my first pizza dough the other day (I don’t bake much, so I was excited it turned out!). I love your pizza toppings; I could eat them any time of the day! 🙂

  10. Wow! That looks amazing. I make pizza every Friday night for movie night with the 7 kids, but have never made it for breakfast!
