Let’s have pizza for breakfast! Easy Breakfast Ham and Cheese Pizza has fluffy eggs, cheese, ham baked into a thick and chewy store-bought crust!
This hearty breakfast pizza starts with a store-bought crust. The crust I used is pictured below. You may also use a canned, refrigerated pizza crust. Additionally, you can use a homemade crust. For refrigerated and homemade crusts, you’ll need to arrange it so the edge is thicker than the middle of the dough so it contains the egg. Otherwise, the egg will run off the pizza before it cooks and firms.
Next, the pizza is loaded with protein; eggs and ham. Leftover ham is great for this recipe. Bacon and/or sausage would be good as well. You meat does need to be cooked first.
Fresh tomatoes brighten the flavor. Fill free to load the pizza with vegetables if that’s what you prefer.
Let me tell you a recent family ‘drama/adventure’…
Wesley has informed me that our dog, the one I didn’t want, is anxious and therefore she’s digging.
She’s anxious, he claims, because she isn’t getting enough exercise.
And who, do you guess, that he suggests take the dog on more walks?!
I mean, seriously(?), I get my miles in every day!
I am not anxious.
Nor, do I dig.
Don’t you think someone else should walk the dog?
Someone who, let’s say, doesn’t run 5+ miles a day?!
I’m just thinking that since no one else in my house gets exercise, ahem, besides me(!) that may be a better solution would be for those someones to walk the dog! Just sayin’
Now……… what was I doing?
oh, yeah, bringing you this extraordinary Breakfast Ham and Cheese Pizza.
It’s perfect for after a long run….
or walking the dog.
Using a premade pizza crust cuts down on the prep time of this breakfast pizza, which is often a very good thing in the morning. If you want to use a homemade dough, it would be delicious as well.
This is the pizza crust I used for this particular breakfast pizza.
You can customize this pizza to your liking and layer on your favorite breakfast foods.
I had breakfast ham and eggs from my Mom’s chickens that I used for my breakfast pizza. What’s your favorite breakfast? Are you a biscuit, waffle or do you like pizza or not-so-traditional breakfast foods?

- 14 ounce prebaked pizza crust*

- 3 Roma tomatoes diced (I remove seeds and pat dry with a paper towel)
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 cup half and half, whipping cream, or whole milk
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- Place pizza crust ona greased pizza pan. Sprinkle 1 cup of the grated cheese over crust.
- Top with ham and tomato.
- In a bowl, combine eggs, half and half and seasonings. Whisk
- Slowly pour egg mixture into center of crust. It will spread out naturally.
- Top with remaining cheese.
- Bake at 425 for 20 minutes or until egg mixture is set.
*If you are not using a pre-baked crust, roll out your dough and make sure the edge is taller than the center. You'll want to do this because the egg and milk mixture will run off the dough if you don't. Adjust cooking 8 to 10 minutes to allow dough to cook through.
