What is breakfast pizza?

While there are plenty of different ways to prepare it, breakfast pizza is a clever spin on a family favorite food. It’s all your favorite breakfast items, piled on a pizza crust. This Breakfast Pizza recipe is super simple, using refrigerated Pillsbury™ Classic Crust Pizza Crust as its base. Then it’s piled with bacon, eggs, cream cheese and bell peppers, making it the ultimate morning meal.

How do you make breakfast pizza?

Breakfast pizza is a dish with many variations. Different toppings, different sauces, different cheeses—you can really customize it to fit your taste. But no matter how you top it, the secret to a perfectly cooked breakfast pizza is partially baking the crust before the other ingredients. Baking the crust on its own before you add the toppings will ensure the perfect consistency, every time.


  • 1 can (13.8 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Classic Crust Pizza Crust
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped bacon (3 slices)
  • 6 eggs, beaten
  • 4 oz (half of 8-oz package) cream cheese, cut into small pieces
  • 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeño peppers (8 oz)
  • 1/2 cup sliced red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • Fresh chopped cilantro, if desired
  • Salsa, if desired


  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F for dark or nonstick pan (425°F for all other pans). Spray 14-inch round pizza pan with cooking spray.
  • 2
    Unroll dough; place on pan. Starting at center, press out dough to edge of pan. Bake about 8 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • 3
    Meanwhile, in 10-inch skillet, cook bacon 4 to 6 minutes over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until just crispy. Remove bacon; drain drippings, leaving 1 teaspoon in skillet.
  • 4
    In same skillet, add eggs; cook 2 to 3 minutes over medium heat, stirring frequently, until firm but still moist.
  • 5
    Spoon and spread eggs over partially baked crust. Drop cream cheese over eggs. Top with Monterey Jack cheese, bell pepper, onion and bacon. Bake 9 to 13 minutes longer or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted. To serve, cut into 6 wedges. Sprinkle with cilantro; serve with salsa.

How do I make sure my breakfast pizza isn’t soggy?

Ingredients in a breakfast pizza usually vary in their required cook times. Your crust is going to take a bit longer to bake than the toppings.

It’s piled with all your favorite breakfast foods: eggs, bacon, sausage, peppers, creamy sauce and, of course, plenty of cheese.
