Breakfast Pizza on Whole Wheat Crust

Updated on March 27, 2016

Fresh, hot and fast Breakfast Pizza

Pizza for breakfast?

Put aside thoughts of cold, greasy left-overs from last night. You can have fresh, healthy breakfast pizza any day of the week.

This recipe is so easy, my kids can make it, with just a little help from me. Its so delicious and fun, even your pickiest eaters will enjoy it. When you can be assured that they're getting some nutritious fuel to start their day, forget the nagging!

The dish calls for eggs, cheese, ham and pineapple, on a whole wheat crust. You'll get all four food groups in one low-fat, high-protein meal. I'm not sure when we first started making this recipe, but let's just say that its been a staple on the menu for years!

Just because its called "breakfast pizza," doesn't mean you can't have it for lunch or dinner! In fact, we love a breakfast dinner at my place.

How to Make Breakfast Pizza

Breakfast pizza takes about 20 minutes to make and serves 4 hungry kids. You might want to make an extra pizza for you and a friend to enjoy after the school bell rings.

Ingredients:

  • 1 12-inch prepared whole wheat pizza crust (Boboli makes a good crust - or make your own from scratch the night before, if you prefer)
  • 2 T margarine or butter
  • 1/2 pound pre-cooked ham, chopped
  • 6 large eggs, beaten
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 1/2 c. shredded cheese - we like a blend of cheddar, mozzarella and parmesan cheese
  • 1 can diced pineapple, or 1/2 of a fresh pineapple cored and diced

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
  2. In a non-stick skillet, add 2 T margarine or butter and melt
  3. Add eggs, salt and pepper and cook, stirring continuously, until eggs are firm, cooked thoroughly
  4. Stir in the ham into the mixture and remove from heat
  5. Place whole wheat crust on a pizza pan or cookie sheet
  6. Top crust with egg mixture, pineapple and then cover with cheese
  7. Bake 12-15 minutes at 400 until cheese is bubbly and the edges of the crust are browned
  8. Serve immediately

Creative Ingredients for Breakfast Pizza

Not a ham and pineapple pizza fan?

No worries! Make your own breakfast pizza using ingredients you love.

Here's some variations on the theme and ideas for other creative ingredients:

  1. Replace whole wheat crust with "regular" pizza crust. Brush with melted butter and herbs (chopped oregano or basil) and bake at 400 for 1-2 minutes before topping with egg mixture, if desired
  2. Replace the ham and pineapple with crumbled bacon. Cook 4 strips of bacon for 4 minutes each side in a fry pan. Allow to cool and then crumble into the egg mixture. If sausage is your preference, cook 4 links or 2 patties. Slice or crumble before stirring into the eggs.
  3. Stir in some of your other favorite ingredients with the eggs. Try 1/4 c. sliced black olives, sundried tomatoes, and/or chopped green onions.
  4. Go vegetarian, using 1/2 c. sliced mushrooms and/or 1/2 c. tofu
  5. Add a few dashes of Tabasco or chili sauce, or 1-2 T of chili powder or Taco seasoning to add a Mexican flair to your breakfast pizza
  6. Prepare mini breakfast pizzas using split English muffins instead of pizza crust. Reduce cooking time to 7-9 minutes
