Avocados + bacon + cheese + eggs + pizza. Need I say more? It’s the best of the breakfast world combined with one of dinner’s finest foods. I will be the first to admit – this is definitely not a low calorie food, but sometimes you’re in the mood to splurge for Sunday brunch or maybe you are under your daily calories and need a calorie-dense, high fat meal. Cue this breakfast pizza. I love everything about this because it is full of healthy fats and tastes delicious. You could easily customize the toppings (perhaps crumbled sausage or shredded chicken in place of the bacon?) as well to make this one of your family’s favorite pizzas.
Next I prepared my pizza crust inspired by the recipe for Fathead pizza. I microwaved the cream cheese and mozzarella cheese for 45 seconds until softened, added the almond flour, egg, salt, pepper and Italian seasoning and stirred until the ingredients formed a ball of dough.
I lined a baking sheet with parchment paper and sprayed with non-stick spray before turning the pizza dough out onto the sheet and forming a long rectangle shape. I smoothed out the top and squared up the edges before baking on its own for 12 minutes until lightly golden brown. While the crust was baking, I cooked the bacon in the microwave for 5 minutes until crispy and set aside to cool.
Once the crust cooled slightly, I used a spatula to spread the avocado out across the dough, crumbled the bacon and sprinkled the shredded cheddar jack cheese on top. I popped the pizza back into the oven for 7 minutes until the cheese was fully melted.
While the pizza was back in the oven, I heated a pan to medium low heat and melted the butter. Next I fried three eggs until the whites were fully cooked and the yolks were mostly set, about three minutes per side. I seasoned them with salt and pepper and then placed them on top of the pizza when I pulled it out of the oven. I love a slightly runny egg yolk, but you could fry these to your liking or omit them completely. I will say, the best bites of this pizza were with the eggs, so I recommend including them however you’d like. The avocado is creamy, the bacon is crunchy, the cheese is….cheesy and everything is held together on a delicious, crispy pizza crust. This is a must-try!
