WHAT IS A KETO BREAKFAST PIZZA?

Keto breakfast pizza is a delicious way to start any morning. This breakfast pizza recipe is very simple, yet is able to create a yummy pizza topped with any number of breakfast ingredients.

The nice thing about breakfast pizza is the ability to customize it however you want. If you’re a bacon lover, you can use bacon as a topping. Or, breakfast sausage and bacon. Whatever your preference is, you can make it the way you want it for a delicious breakfast meal.

Breakfast pizza is also an easy way to make enough breakfast to feed the whole family. One pizza could easily serve up to four people. Or, you can make individual sized pizzas perfect for just one person.

WHAT IS FATHEAD DOUGH?

Fathead dough is the name given to a low-carb/keto dough made from (usually) almond flour, cream cheese, and mozzarella. It can be used to make pizza, cinnamon rolls, and tons of other delicious recipes.

The dough is extremely popular in the low-carb/keto community because it is relatively easy to make, tastes great, crisps like regular dough, is low in carbs, and for those on keto, high in fat.

In the early days of this website, we set out to make our own fathead dough variation, which is great for pizza crusts. This breakfast pizza recipe uses this dough, which is easy to make and takes less than 5 minutes.

You’ll need the following ingredients to make the dough (also listed on its recipe page): 3/4 cup almond flour, 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, 2 tablespoons melted butter, and a pinch of salt.

KETO BREAKFAST PIZZA INGREDIENTS

Before trying to make this pizza, make sure you have the following ingredients on hand.

  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup diced no-sugar ham
  • 1 of our Keto Fathead Dough/Crusts
  • 4 large eggs

NOTE: If you plan on using different or additional ingredients such as breakfast sausage, bacon, pepperoni, etc., be sure to have those as well. More discussion on choosing additional toppings is below.

HOW TO MAKE KETO BREAKFAST PIZZA

Before following these instructions, make sure to follow the instructions for making the Keto Fathead Crust on its recipe page. Making the crust before following these instructions is necessary to make this pizza.

  • Preheat oven to 350˚F
  • Make one of our Keto Fathead Dough/Crust Remix
  • Cover crust with cheese and ham chunks (other toppings, if you wish)
  • Crack eggs and place, creating four equal parts of the crust covered in egg; leave sunny side up!
  • Place into oven and bake until eggs are cooked through (or yolks slightly runny if you prefer)

CHOOSING ADDITIONAL PIZZA TOPPINGS

Even though we list toppings for this pizza, you may want to include toppings of your own.

There are tons of delicious toppings you can include in addition to our suggestions, or in place of; your choice.

Here is a list of toppings you might consider adding to your pizza.

  • Provolone cheese
  • Pepperoni slices (for that regular pizza taste)
  • Breakfast sausage
  • Bacon
  • Prosciutto
  • Pepperjack cheese

There are tons others out there! Make sure anything you add to this recipe you account for its added nutritional value.

Also, when choosing a topping, make sure to check its carb count. Carbs can quickly sneak in if you’re not careful!

CAN I DOUBLE THIS RECIPE?

Certainly. You can easily double everything about this recipe, including the crust. You’d simply want to make two crusts and then top them in whatever way you see fit.

MAKING PERSONAL-SIZE BREAKFAST PIZZAS

If you’d like to make personal sized breakfast pizzas, it’s really easy!

First, make four individual pizza doughs. Simply break your dough ball into fourths and roll out small crusts. Cook them the same way as the large one, keeping an eye on them so they don’t burn since they are smaller.

Then, place one egg on each crust along with any toppings you may want. Cook in the oven as normal and remove when the egg is cooked and the cheese is melted.

These also make storing and reheating pizza for another meal really super simple!

STORING LEFTOVER KETO BREAKFAST PIZZA

The easiest way to store your leftover breakfast pizza is in air-tight storage containers in the refrigerator.

Simply place your leftover pizza in the container and refrigerate for 2 – 4 days. After that, it’s probably best to discard any leftovers. If nothing else, the pizza will begin to lose its taste and the crust will begin to get soggy.

REHEATING LEFTOVER BREAKFAST PIZZA

Reheating your leftover pizza is easy to do and will make sure you have breakfast ready in no time. There are two ways we recommend to reheat your keto breakfast pizza for a quick meal.

IN THE OVEN

The best, but not the fastest way, to reheat your pizza is in the oven. Reheating in the oven helps to bring it up to temperature slower than a microwave, helping to not overcook any ingredients that are already cooked.

To use the oven, preheat to 350˚F. Place your leftovers on an oven-safe pan and place inside. After 4 – 5 minutes, your pizza should be reheated and ready to eat. If it’s not hot enough for your liking, leave in another few minutes, or until it is hot enough.

IN THE MICROWAVE

The easy and fast option is to use the microwave. For this dish, the microwave isn’t the most ideal option, simply because its very easy to overcook ingredients on the pizza (egg, sausage, ham, etc.) due to the rapid cooking of the microwave.

However, it is easy and convenient, and is probably the option most people would choose. Place your leftover pizza on a dish (or leave it in the storage container if using a glass container) and place into the microwave. Microwave in 30 second increments or until it is heated to your liking.

      Gary,

      Cook this pizza on 350˚. We’ve added it to the recipe… Not sure how we missed adding that in.
