Pizza for Breakfast

My friends and I planned to do a pot-luck brunch on our apartment’s rooftop, so my first thought was what can I possibly make for breakfast with a grill?! My love for pizza combined with my love for grilling made it quite clear – why not grill a breakfast pizza. Short on time, I decided to buy store-bought dough (making your own wouldn’t be too hard and you could use a healthier alternative), and I bought some produce favorites: parsley and scallions! Just about anything can be used as toppings, however below is what I used and how I did it.

Prep Time: 15 Minutes

Cooking Time: ~10 Minutes


  • Prepared pizza dough
  • Olive oil, for drizzling on pizza dough
  • 3 whole eggs
  • 5 strips cooked bacon, chopped into pieces
  • 1 cup grated mozzarella
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan
  • 1 pinch kosher salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 1 tbsp minced parsley
  • 1 whole scallion, trimmed and thinly sliced


  1. Dust the surface of your kitchen counter with flour and roll pizza dough to a ¼-inch thickness
  2. Drizzle both sides of dough with olive oil and set aside on round baking sheet
  3. Cook the bacon and chop it up
  4. Gather all the toppings and dough and move outside to the grill
  5. Set the grill to the highest heat setting, once it is nice and hot place the pizza dough onto the grill
  6. Once the grill marks appear, flip it and crack the three eggs onto the dough and cover for 3-5 minutes
  7. Once the eggs are just about set, sprinkle the cheeses, bacon and salt and pepper; cover for an additional 2 minutes or until cheese is melted
  8. Sprinkle with parsley and scallions, and enjoy!
