Breakfast Pizza Recipe


Pizza for breakfast? Why not! It’s just as fun and delicious as your typical afternoon or evening pizza, with a world of adventurous topping possibilities. There’s no limit to creativity when adding toppings and trying sauces. At the end of this post, I share recipe alterations that can dress it up even more.

My recipe for Spinach and Sausage Breakfast Pizza is lower in calories and an absolute breakfast or brunch crowd pleaser!


  • 1 pizza crust, homemade or fresh/frozen, such as Trader Joe’s prepackaged pizza crust
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 Tbsp. nonfat milk
  • ½ medium green bell pepper, chopped
  • ½ medium onion, chopped
  • ½ medium tomato, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 8 oz. ground lean turkey sausage, browned
  • 1 cup spinach
  • ½ cup reduced-fat sharp Cheddar cheese
  • Sprinkle of shredded mozzarella cheese (optional)



  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine eggs and milk, whisking until smooth.
  3. Chop green pepper, onion, and tomato. Fold gently into the egg mixture. Set aside.
  4. Prepare the pizza crust by brushing it with olive oil. Place crust on pizza pan or baking sheet.
  5. Place the browned sausage equally over the pizza crust. Carefully pour the egg mixture on top, spreading the vegetables evenly.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes.
  7. Remove pizza from oven and add spinach and cheese on top.
  8. Place back in oven for additional 7-10 minutes, until crust is golden brown.
  9. Let cool slightly and serve.
