Why You’ll Love This Breakfast Recipe
- Super Easy: I used canned biscuits for the base which makes this insanely simple to make!
- Great for Leftovers: I used leftovers from biscuits and gravy and frozen bacon pieces which made this even easier to whip up.
- Freezer Friendly: Leftovers are perfect for meal prep or you can save them in the freezer for later!
Listen, my husband is obsessed with pizza. If he was picking his last meal I know for a fact it would be a large Brooklyn style pepperoni pizza from Dominos. This man is a fanatic for that doughy goodness. So when he told me he sampled the most amazing breakfast pizza, from a gas station of all places, I knew in my heart I would need to recreate that tasty dish.
I opted to keep things super simple with a canned biscuit base and it was 100% the right decision. When pressed out it gives you a flaky layer base that is oh-so perfect for all of the savory toppings. This even got the stamp of approval from my VERY picky teenager who gave it a solid 9/10. You’ll want to make this every day of the week and your kids will be thrilled with their individual sized pizza breakfast!
Biscuits And Gravy Pizza Ingredients
While I kept things basic, and only used five ingredients, you can get pretty creative with your toppings! Here is what we used:
- Biscuits: I opted for canned biscuits for ease. Can you use homemade biscuits? Yes. Can you use a classic pizza crust? Also yes.
- Breakfast Gravy: I really have a thing for my easy sausage gravy, which is what I used. However, you can find these handy country gravy packets (affiliate) that are equally delicious.
- Eggs: When I created this recipe I happened to have leftover scrambled eggs on hand, so that’s what I used. They’re light and fluffy and add a dose of protein that keeps you full. You can also try cracking an egg right on top and going for a fried egg version!
- Cheese: Pick your favorite! I like cheddar, but you can get pretty creative with what cheese you use. My husband thought that pepper jack was a delicious addition.
- Bacon: Like some of the other ingredients, I used precooked bacon that I had tossed in my freezer. Extra easy to add to any of your favorite dishes.
How To Make Breakfast Pizza
Once you’ve made these mini breakfast biscuits once you’ll be a pro. BUT, for the sake of ease, I did include step by step photos. Here’s how you can make this quick egg breakfast:
1. PREP: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking tray with parchment paper, or a silicone baking mat, for easy cleanup.
2. PRESS: Open the canned biscuits. Press with your hand directly onto the lined baking tray and press into a six inch circle. Repeat with the remaining biscuits until you have 8 flat circles to work with.
3. GRAVY: For the sauce, spread 2 to 3 tablespoons of the country gravy onto each flattened biscuit, making sure to get almost all the way to the sides of each.
4. TOPPINGS: Add additional toppings onto the gravy. We like to add in this order: eggs, cheese, bacon. Keeping the eggs under the cheese makes them less likely to overcook in the oven.
5. BAKE: Bake the pizzas for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the edges of the biscuits are golden brown and the cheese is nice and melted on top.
6. ENJOY: Serve the pizzas immediately or allow to cool and store for later.
- Baking Trays: Having a quality set of baking trays (affiliate) is a life saver in the kitchen. They are a tad thicker and help heat everything evenly.
- Silicone Baking Mats: Not technically something you need, but silicone baking mats (affiliate) are used almost daily in our home. They keep almost anything from sticking to a baking tray AND are reusable so cut back on waste from foil and parchment.
- Pizza Cutter: Hear me out, I actually use my pizza cutter (affiliate) for EVERYTHING. Quesadillas? Pizza cutter. Grilled cheese? Pizza cutter. Pancakes? Pizza cutter!
You can use any type of refrigerated canned biscuits available at your local grocery store. The regular buttermilk or flaky varieties work well for this recipe.
Absolutely! If you prefer homemade dough, feel free to make your own biscuit dough from scratch and use it as the base for your breakfast pizza.
Absolutely! The beauty of breakfast pizza is its versatility. Feel free to experiment with various toppings such as sausage, ham, bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, or any other ingredients you enjoy in your breakfast.
Yes, you can freeze the baked breakfast pizza for future enjoyment. Allow it to cool completely, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap or foil, and store it in a freezer-safe container or bag. When ready to eat, thaw it in the refrigerator overnight and reheat it in the oven until warmed through.
For a vegetarian version, omit the meat toppings and load up on veggies like spinach, tomatoes, or zucchini. To make it vegan, use plant-based biscuits and substitute the cheese with dairy-free alternatives like vegan cheese or nutritional yeast.
