Bacon Breakfast Pizza

I used to make this bacon breakfast pizza for my morning drivers when I worked at a delivery place. And they just loved it. Breakfast pizza is a quick and easy eye-opener that appeals to all ages. —Cathy Shortall, Easton, Maryland

Bacon Breakfast Pizza Tips

Is breakfast pizza a Midwestern thing?

Casey’s General Store, a convenience store chain in Iowa, is famous for their breakfast pizza, which they introduced in 2001. The popularity of breakfast pizzas has spread across the country and can be enjoyed at any time of day!

Should bacon be cooked before putting it on pizza?

Yes, bacon should be cooked before putting it on pizza for two reasons: pizza has a short bake time so the bacon wouldn’t cook through and the uncooked bacon would make the pizza greasy.

Which is the best cheese for pizza?

The best cheese for pizza is one that has great meltability and elasticity. That puts mozzarella at the top of the list for most people. But other options include provolone, cheddar, Colby, Edam and Gruyere. Want more breakfast pizza options?

    I'm used to Casey's breakfast pizza with it's cheese sauce. To add a cheese sauce here, I used part of a packaged country gravy mix, milk and 1/2 cup of Velveeta. I put the scrambled eggs and bacon on top of the cheese sauce, and then reduced the shredded cheese by 1/2 cup. Nice and creamy.

    It was a hit for brunch! You can pick it up and eat it just like regular pizza. I followed the recipe almost exactly, but added frozen maple breakfast sausage, cooked and broken into small pieces, and used regular bacon I broke up into pieces. I put cheese both under and on top of the bacon and sausage, and actually everything got mixed together and it was still great (don't forget to pre-bake the crust!!). I also lightly seasoned the eggs with celery salt and pepper. Didn't measure the cheese--just used what looked right which probably was about 1 cup of each. Really easy and really good!

    What is not to like? If you are a breakfast person, this is a good one! Love that it's easy to make and uses staple ingredients. You can always change out the bacon for some cooked sausage or Canadian bacon slices.

    I added a bacon chipotle smoked sea salt to the eggs and it was perfect. We loved this.

    I made this recipe as directed. It was super easy and really fast to make. In the future, like others said, I would add more seasoning to the eggs such as pepper or hot sauce.

    This was easy and delicious! I used milk instead of water and I switched out the bacon for ham. I also had some extra hashbrowns to use up and that was a great addition!

    Made the recipe as written and thought it was average. Needed seasoning to give it more flavor. I think that the bacon did not give it enough flavor for my taste and that the addition of sausage would have helped. It was easy to make and attractive,

    I haven't tried this recipe yet, but want to...but for those of you who have, how would it be if you spread a bit of sausage gravy over the crust before putting on the eggs and cheese? Campbell's has a very good canned sausage gravy that would make it quick and easy.
