Say goodbye to the need to save your slice for supper and introduce yourself to its breakfast equivalent!
We have seen every type of pizza possible in our years of restaurant research, including Mexican, Thai chicken, and dessert pizzas, but surprisingly, not a single breakfast pizza. Perplexing, considering how simple and delicious it may be. With salsa serving as your sauce and the best morning bread—the fiber-dense whole-wheat English muffin—as your base, you can add eggs, ham, and cheese for taste, texture, and lots of protein. Any day is better than an 800-calorie breakfast sandwich, and you get to brag to everyone about eating pizza for the morning.
- 1⁄2 Tbsp butter
- 6 eggs, beaten
- Salt and black pepper to taste
- 4 oz ham, cut into thin strips
- 4 whole wheat or multigrain English muff ins, split and lightly toasted
- 1 cup prepared salsa
- 1 cup shredded low-fat Jack or Cheddar cheese
Method of Breakfast Pizza
Set the broiler to high. Then Butter should be heated in a big, nonstick pan.
Add the ham strips and eggs to the pan after the butter has melted. Season the eggs with salt and pepper.
Cook, stirring the eggs frequently while they are set with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula.
About 30 seconds before the eggs are done, remove the pan from the heat (the eggs will continue to cook in the pan in the oven).
Place a generous amount of salsa on each side of an English muffin. After dividing the eggs among the English muffins, sprinkle the cheese on top.
When the cheese is completely melted and nicely browned on the edges, arrange all of the English muffins on a baking sheet and broil (6″ from the fire is excellent).
The foundation flavors of these individual pizzas are Mexican, but there are a plethora of ways to customize morning pizza. Here are some more combos that will make your day go well; they all feature scrambled eggs as part of the recipe. This is the end of plain, boring eggs!

- Shredded chicken, provolone or fontina cheese, and marinara
- Turkey, tomato, Swiss cheese, and guacamole
- Arrabbiata sauce, a spicy tomato sauce, and grilled chicken
