Breakfast should be the meal we look forward to waking up for. I have to admit that I am not always that great at getting creative at breakfast time. It’s time that I change that! After making this breakfast pizza I realized I need to explore more breakfast recipes. I know I am looking forward to making this Breakfast Pizza again.
We are a breakfast at any time of the day kind of family. It’s often the one thing that everyone agrees on when we are trying to decide what to eat.
This Breakfast Pizza with Hollandaise Sauce is perfect any time of day and we especially love it as a tasty brunch idea! I use creamy Hollandaise sauce, caramelized onions, sweet peppers, asparagus and top it off with Eggs.
I like to have my kids help me put the pizzas all together and they love adding the toppings. By using pre-made flat breads or “Naan Bread” I can avoid having to make my own pizza crust. Feel free to use your own favorite pizza crust for the base. I think biscuits would work great as a base for this pizza too. I am getting hungry just thinking of it!
For the Hollandaise sauce I just cook it up in the microwave instead of on the stove. This speeds up the cooking time a bit and still results in a super yummy sauce. Have you ever had Hollandaise sauce? It an absolute must for a breakfast pizza!
The most important part about making the Breakfast Pizza is using fresh eggs on top after placing the rest of the ingredients on the crust. The toppings stop the egg from running all over the place.
After the pizzas have baked up and the eggs are white on the outsides but still a little runny on the insides, I take out the pizzas and add some more Hollandaise sauce to them. The best part is cutting into this pizza and tasting all the savory flavors working together. It makes the perfect breakfast, brunch or brinner… or whatever time you want to eat it meal!
Tips & ideas for making Breakfast Pizza:
- Make them individual size for variety. Let everyone choose their own toppings for their own pizza! My kids love to do this.
- Go gluten free or make it Keto friendly. You can use any kind of pizza crust for this recipe and just keep the toppings in line with your diet goals.
- Add more protein. Bacon, sausage or Canadian bacon all work really well with this Breakfast Pizza. I could see some chopped steak on here too for a steak and eggs breakfast pizza.
- Add in the veggies. I have several veggies listed in the ingredients, but most veggies will work great with it. Try mushrooms, broccoli, zucchini and more.
- Try scrambled eggs. Don’t like the thought of runny eggs? Try it with scrambled eggs on top that you’ve premade. To ensure the eggs don’t get too rubbery don’t scramble them fully. Cook them in the skillet just enough to get to a thicker consistency so they don’t run off the pizza crust. Then add them to the top of the pizza before baking. Don’t worry… they will fully cook in the oven.
- Try vegan or vegetarian style. Breakfast pizza is so versatile. Add in tofu instead of eggs and a sprinkle of your favorite vegan cheese and butter.
- Biscuits and Sausage Gravy? Yep. Either make the pizza crust with biscuits (a canned biscuit would be great for this) or use the pizza crust I used here. Then add on your favorite sausage gravy. YUM!
Breakfast Pizza sauce suggestions:
- Traditional pizza sauce. A tomato based sauce is not out of the question for a breakfast pizza. I would still even add the eggs on top! Of course if you are not a big fan of ketchup and eggs… then you might not like the combo.
- Salsa. Yup. Salsa is one of my favorite toppings for eggs and it would work great as a sauce for a Mexican style breakfast pizza. Add some chorizo and hot peppers. I think this could be another post… hmm.
- Hollandaise Sauce. Of course that’s what I used so I will suggest it again. It’s great on this pizza. Makes it so rich tasting!
- Cream cheese. We love cream cheese a lot around here. I think it would a great “sauce” or spread idea. You could always add a little cream to thin it down before spreading it on.
- Béchamel sauce. This is simply a white sauce made with a flour roux and milk. It’s much like gravy with a more subtle taste that would taste great with any toppings.
- No Sauce. Ok. That’s not really a sauce suggestion, but add enough cheese and you really don’t need a sauce!
Breakfast Pizza with Hollandaise Sauce is my new favorite brunch idea and I can’t wait to make it again.
If you love this pizza as much as we do… please consider giving it a 5⭐️ below in the comments!
Breakfast Pizza with Hollandaise Sauce
- 4 large Eggland's Best Eggs
- 2 small Flatbreads or Naan Bread
- 1 cup cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup asparagus ends
- 1/2 cup caramelized onions
- 1/2 cup chopped sweet bell peppers (any color you want)
- 2 large Eggland's Best Eggs Egg Yolks only
- 1/4 cup melted salted butter
- 2 Tbsp. mayo ***optional "see notes"
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 pinch cayenne pepper
- 2 tsp. lemon juice
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Make the sauce first by putting the egg yolks into a small bowl and beat them until light and fluffy. Add slowly the melted butter while still beating. Add the cayenne and salt. Microwave for 10-20 seconds and check every 5 seconds to make sure the eggs are not cooking. Whip the mixture well every time you check. The mixture will be pretty runny before you whip it. If it's still to runny for your taste then you can add in the mayo to make it thicker. This will only alter the taste a tiny bit.
Next place the flatbreads on the baking pan. Drizzle and brush with Hollandaise Sauce. Next add the cheese and rest of topping except the eggs. Add the eggs last and break them right on top of the pizza. You might want to form a "dam" with some of the toppings before adding the egg to ensure they don't run over the pizza. Place in the preheated oven for around 15-20 minutes. The eggs should be cooked through the whites and I like to leave the middles a bit runny. You can decide how much you want to cook the eggs, but keep in mind that there is always a risk with undercooked eggs.
Let the pizzas rest for a few minutes after taking them out of the oven and then dig in! Enjoy!
