Bacon and egg pizza

Serves 4


  • 1 (12 inch) prepared pizza crust
  • 1/4 cup favorite pizza sauce
  • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, a bit more to taste
  • 2 ounces bacon, cooked, patted dry with a paper towel and crumbled
  • 1 large egg
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat your oven according to the pizza crust directions.
  2. When the oven is hot and ready, spread the pizza sauce on the crust, then sprinkle with the mozzarella cheese.
  3. Arrange the crumbled bacon all around the top of the cheese, just to the edges of the pizza.
  4. Cook until the pizza is almost finished, with about five or six minutes left.
  5. Remove the pizza from the oven. Gently make a slight indentation into the center of the pizza, moving the sauce, cheese and bacon out from the middle just a bit.
  6. Crack an egg into a cup, taking care not to crack the yolk, then carefully slide it from the cup to the center of the pizza.
  7. Place the pizza back in the oven so the egg can cook, for about five or six minutes, or until done.
  8. Remove from the oven and cool slightly. Season the egg with a bit of salt and pepper.
  9. Slice the pizza so each serving has some of the egg with it.

Flip your day and enjoy a breakfast-style pizza for dinner!
