How to Make This Delicious Breakfast Pizza
Preheating and Preparing
The first step is to preheat your pizza oven as indicated in the manufacturer's instructions or to the recommended temperature.
Rolling Out and Flavoring
On a surface dusted with flour, roll out your pizza dough to your preferred thickness. Then, brush olive oil evenly over the dough's surface to coat it. Next, sprinkle minced garlic over the oiled dough and dollop ricotta cheese onto the dough, pressing it a bit to flatten. Lastly, sprinkle oregano, parsley, and red pepper flakes on top of the ricotta.
Layering and Toppings
Arrange Prosciutto, coppa, and bresaola on the dough for added flavor. Then, sprinkle mozzarella cheese evenly over the toppings. Gently crack eggs over the cheese layer.
Baking the Pizza
Carefully transfer your prepared pizza into the preheated pizza oven. Allow the pizza to cook until the bottom is crisp and golden and the eggs have set to your liking.
Once the pizza is cooked to perfection, carefully take it out of the oven. Scatter fresh arugula over the hot pizza; it will slightly wilt from the heat. Give the pizza a few minutes (around 5 minutes) to cool slightly before you slice it and get ready to serve.
What to serve With Breakfast Pizza
Expert Recipe Tips
- Rotating the pizza halfway through prevents it from burning.
- Since this recipe uses pre-made crust, make sure to watch it as it can burn quickly.
- Swap out the Prosciutto for breakfast sausage or pork sausage to make for a more classic touch.
- Add in some crispy bacon pieces for a bit of texture and flavor.
- Want to cut down on the fat? Use egg whites instead.
- Add a dash of hot sauce for an extra kick.
- If you're not a fan of sunny side-up eggs, you can make scrambled eggs and sprinkle those on top of the pizza.
Leftovers and Reheating
Place any leftover breakfast pizza in an airtight container in the fridge for 4 days in an airtight container. When you're ready to eat it, pop it in the oven at 350 degrees F until heated. Alternatively, place the leftover pizza in the microwave and heat in 30-second intervals.
Absolutely! If you want to switch things up, add some cheddar cheese or parmesan cheese! If you want to get super fancy, you can even use goat cheese for a tangier flavor profile!
Use a pizza stone or large skillet and bake the breakfast pizza at 450-500 degrees F until the pizza is golden brown and the eggs have set.
Yes! If you like to make your own homemade pizza crust, go for it!
