Dear Pizza, I Love You: Loaded Breakfast Pizza with Everything Bagel Crust
Breakfast for dinner, dinner for breakfast... I don’t even know anymore. But, what I do know is that this loaded breakfast pizza with an everything bagel crust is mind blowing! It is a meal that is equally amazing at anytime of the day. This AM pizza calls for a pre-made pizza crust that is crispy, yet soft and coated in everything bagel seasoning, an olive oil and garlic base that then gets topped with 2 types of gooey cheese, 3 different vegetables, one type of protein, herbs and spices. It looks like a party and tastes like a party! This is a pizza that you definitely need in your life ASAP.
If you are looking for a delicious way to start your day, look no further. This colorful flavorful breakfast pizza will get you started on the right foot. This pizza is piled high with all of your favorite key ingredients: bacon, eggs and cheese. To enhance this pizza and kick it up a notch, I also add a variety of vegetables and spices. When I am having brunch, I always have to have some sort of potato aspect. I am obsessed to say the least. Whether that be shredded hash browns or breakfast potatoes, I love them in any shape or form. So, this is where the potato slices on the pizza come in. They are the hash brown aspect. The tomatoes and green bell pepper are a nice touch of crunch and colors that get added. Plus they are healthy, juicy and fresh.
This recipe is so simple because I opted to use pre-made crust as opposed to taking the extra steps to make a homemade version. Do not get me wrong any homemade crust is incredible, however it is more time consuming and this recipes cuts the prep and cooking time down by opting for the pre-made version. In addition, this also frees up more time for you to prep your toppings. There is absolutely nothing wrong with opting for pre-made crust, the dish taste just as heavenly and you don’t even notice a difference.
Your breakfasts just got a whole lot better and if this isn’t brunch goals, I don’t know what is! These step by step photos above show you my layering technique and one thing to note is that you do cook it without the eggs first for 8 minutes and since the bacon does get pre-cooked as well, you leave that off until after the eggs go on as you do not want those to overcook/burn either. So, the last photo shows eggs and bacon getting added on after the vegetables, cheese and crust bake for a bit first.
Once it is done and you let it cool for 10 minutes then cut, you will have perfectly golden eggs and crust and you are just bites away from living your best breakfast life.
