Why you’ll love this breakfast pizza
Mornings aren’t my favorite, so I wanted to keep this pizza super simple. That’s why I stuck to 5 basic toppings and I used pre-cooked breakfast sausage to speed up prep.
As for the crust, I alternate between using store-bought pizza dough and making my own (with this quick pizza dough recipe). Same goes for sauce, if I have the ingredients, I make it myself using my homemade pizza sauce recipe. Do whatever’s easiest for you though.
Here’s what you’ll need to make it

Ingredients & substitutions
- Pizza dough – Our grocery store sells prepared dough in their deli section, but you can use your favorite recipe. Pillsbury also sells canned pizza dough alongside their biscuits that is dairy free as of right now.
- Pizza sauce – Canned or jarred pizza sauce is great, but you can also make your own using this no cook pizza sauce recipe.
- Eggs – We always follow this recipe for scrambled eggs without milk. Make sure you “under cook” your eggs so they don’t dry out too much in the oven.
- Vegan mozzarella – I like to use a combination of Follow Your Heart shreds and liquid mozzarella to get the ultimate in dairy free cheese texture. I recommend experimenting to see what you like best.
How to make this breakfast pizza recipe
Cook your eggs. Heat a large skillet over medium and melt a tablespoon of dairy free butter or coat it with cooking spray. Then, beat your eggs until smooth and cook them until they are opaque, but still loose and wet. Remove them from the heat and set them aside.
Assemble the pizza. Spread a layer of cornstarch over your pizza peel (or cutting board) and stretch the pizza dough to your desired size. Top with sauce, meats, cooked eggs and dairy free cheese.
Bake the pizza. Transfer the pizza to the stone with the cutting board and let the pizza cook until the cheese is melted and your crust is golden brown.
This will vary depending on your crust so follow the directions on your package or the recommended time from the recipe you used. We needed about 15 minutes for ours, but adjust your timing accordingly.
Garnish and serve. Remove the pizza from the oven and allow it to rest for a few minutes before cutting it. Top the pizza with fresh arugula and slice into 8 pieces.
Dairy free cheese for pizza
Dairy free cheese is a touchy subject. Normally, I recommend not even touching it until you’ve been dairy free for a few months, but I find the combination of cheeses in this recipe to be the best in terms of flavor and texture.
Follow Your Heart Mozzarella – Our local pizza place uses these shreds for their vegan pizza, and we order from there a lot. Even though I can taste the difference, there isn’t a funky taste.
Miyoko’s Liquid Mozzarella – This comes in liquid form so it doesn’t need that extra time to melt. It definitely looks the best after cooking, but it does contain nuts, so it’s not for everyone.

There really is no difference. A breakfast pizza is simply, a pizza with breakfast toppings – typically eggs. You can eat it for any meal, at any time of the day.
That depends. Dairy free cheeses all act differently when heated, so it depends on the product you choose, and how you’re cooking your pizza. I like to use a combination of shreds and liquid mozzarella to get the best results with dairy free cheese.
As of right now, we like to use a combination of vegan cheese for our pizza – Follow Your Heart mozzarella shreds and Miyoko’s liquid mozzarella.
Yes. Eggs are great on pizza, but you will want to crack it first. For this recipe, we scrambled eggs before putting them on our pizza, but an egg cracked directly onto the pizza will cook like a fried egg and create a delicious runny yolk (make sure to put it on halfway through the baking).
