Although we usually think of pizza as a treat food, it can be healthy for breakfast. Unlike sugary cereals, pizza offers a more balanced mix of carbs and proteins.
A slice of pizza boasts less sugar than a typical bowl of cereal, nutritionist Chelsey Amer, MS, RDN, tells Health. Plus, it has a little more fiber, too.
Breakfast Pizza with Sausage and Eggs
The ideal method to prepare a filling lunch in less than 30 minutes is with this breakfast pizza from Bricks Corner Pizza. It’s topped with typical morning fare like sausage and eggs and is quite flavorful and filling!
To make this pizza, heat a pizza steel or stone in the oven and pre-bake your pizza crust. Then make the cheese sauce and cook your sausage and eggs. Finally, add the pizza toppings and bake.
This pizza is delicious on its own, but it would also be great with a drizzle of easy hollandaise or some fresh sliced green onions on top! It’s also easily customizable: swap out the sausage for your favourite breakfast meat, or use different kinds of cheese, such as pepper jack and cheddar.
To make this ahead, assemble the pizza up to the point where the eggs are added and then cover it with saran wrap and tin foil. Then, when you’re ready to eat, reheat in the oven for about 15 minutes.
Breakfast Pizza with Bacon
Fluffy scrambled eggs, crisp bacon, and two kinds of cheese all on a pizza! This breakfast pizza is a Midwest favourite that can easily be made at home.
To make this breakfast pizza, prepare the pizza dough as instructed on the package (remove it from the fridge to preheat the oven). Then, brush the pizza crust with one tablespoon of oil and prick thoroughly with a fork. Bake until lightly browned, 7-8 minutes.
In the meantime, mix the water and eggs. The eggs should be fried over medium heat in a nonstick skillet until just set and barely done. Sprinkle cheese and bacon bits over the crust after evenly pouring eggs over it. Bake the crust in the oven until it turns golden and the cheese melt. Serve hot. When combined with a side of fruit and a drink of orange juice, this breakfast pizza recipe from the Bricks Corner SLC menu offers a filling meal.
