How to Make Breakfast Pizza
To make this cheesy bacon breakfast pizza, start by spreading the thin pizza dough out on a jelly roll pan. Bake the pizza dough for 7 minutes on 400°. While the pizza crust is baking, make your scrambled eggs and fry your bacon. For the pizza I made 8 eggs. Everyone has their secret to making scrambled eggs. My friend Stacy has a great method for making fluffy scrambled eggs. Chop the scrambled eggs a bit for easier spooning onto the pizza crust.
Back to the pizza crust… When the pizza crust is just starting to brown, remove from the oven and spread cheese sauce over the crust. This is your pizza sauce. Next, spoon the eggs over the cheese sauce. Finally, crumble the bacon over the eggs.
