Garlic and Basil Egg Breakfast Pizza with Onions and Peppers

Sometimes, you just get tired of plain ole scrambled eggs in the morning. Eggs make a great start to the day since they are packed with protein. Protein helps your body build and also repair tissue. Protein is also a great source for helping the body fight infection, generating hormones, and forming enzymes. Scrambling plain eggs gets old, so I decided to mix it up for a very tasty breakfast with a hot out of the oven Garlic and Basil Egg Breakfast Pizza!egg breakfast pizza

The Garlic & Basil Egg Breakfast Pizza is packed with flavor and protein. A very filling breakfast, to say the least! Using Nellie's Free Range Eggs, I created this recipe to have a new way to make my morning eggs other than just plain scrambled eggs. It has been a big hit in our home.

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes


  • 1 refrigerated pizza crust (13.8-ounce can)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (halved)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced (halved)
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese
  • 6 whole basil leaves
  • 1 cup frozen onion pepper blend
  • 2 Nellie's Free Range Eggs
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Lightly coat your dutch oven with olive oil.

Unroll pizza crust. Place your dutch oven lid on top of the dough and press down to leave an imprint of the lid in the dough. Remove lid and cut along the indention to cut the dough to fit perfectly in the bottom of your dutch oven.

Place the dough in the dutch oven. Baste the dough with one tablespoon olive oil and half of the minced garlic.

Bake at 350 for 15 minutes or until dough looks fully cooked (but not browned).

While the crust is baking, sautee onions, peppers, and the rest of the garlic in a tablespoon of olive oil until they are sauteed to your liking.

Remove the dutch oven from the oven.

Add onion and pepper mixture to the crust, leaving two pockets for the eggs.

Sprinkle cheese over onions and pepper mixture.

Crack a Nellie's Free Range Egg into each pocket.

Place basil leaves on top, spread out.

Season with salt and pepper.

Bake for another 15 minutes or until whites of eggs is cooked.


While the crust is in the oven, I sauteed the veggies. The total time from start to finish was 40 minutes with about 20 minutes downtime broke up between the two different cook times.

  1. I like the idea of egg on a pizza, but I tried one once and wasn’t impressed. It was covered with some kind of white gravy, bland w/o any real seasoning and the crust was soggy. I don’t see that happening with your recipe at all. I never tried to make one, but I think this would make a great dinner too, maybe I’ll add some bacon or italian sausage….

  2. I love how this recipe opens the door for being super creative! Just like you can do with omletes- you can make your own pizza! Great idea for a breakfast for dinner meal 🙂

  3. This is definitely a recipe I am trying! It’s true that regular and scrambled eggs get boring! I’m sure my husband would love this for a change!

  4. Garlic And Basil Egg Breakfast Pizza With Onions And Peppers sounds like a wonderful and tasty recipe. I would enjoy this on a quiet Sunday Morning.

  5. Holy Moly!! I think I just found my go to breakfast dish!! This looks so good!! I’d even make it for brunch or breakfast for dinner!! I have to try it!!

  6. This recipe looks so good! I bet even my kids would like this dish. I think I’ll make this on Friday! Thank you for sharing this recipe.

  7. I can’t get over how good this looks. That breakfast dish is an Italian food lover’s dream! I can’t wait to sample that crunchy, crispy crust. I plan on varying the recipe a little by adding Canadian bacon, mushrooms and black olives.

  8. I have fresh basil in my herb garden and I think this would be a wonderful way to use it. I would have this for breakfast or lunch.

  9. Have never had a breakfast pizza before and I would have said no thanks. But after looking at this picture and reading about it I want this breakfast pizza. What I really like is you are using the frozen peppers and onions. That is my must have in my freezer for so many things.

  10. Wow, this sounds delicious! I love pizza but I have definitely never had a breakfast pizza before! I am definitely going to have to make this now. 🙂 Thank you so much for sharing!

  11. The picture made my mouth start to water. I will be making this breakfast pizza one morning or evening this up coming week.

  12. To me, this looks really good. I enjoy a good breakfast pizza. I like the ingredients in tis. I would think it would be a hit here. You can really make some nice variations of this too!

  13. A lot of thinking out of the box on this recipe…I would never have thought to put these ingredients together, but I love the idea. Can’t quite imagine the taste combo, but I’m willing since I like all the individual ingredients. It’ll be a first for me…eggs on pizza, onions and peppers with eggs, but I’m game. Great to add another ‘on the go’ type breakfast item to the list.

  14. What a wonderful idea! My grandkids hate breakfast, but love pizza. But since my granddaughter says she hates egg yolks, I think I would do this a little differently. I think I’d try beating the egg and putting it on top of the peppers and onions and then putting more peppers and onions on top. Sot of egg in disguise.

  15. I prefer free-range, cage-free eggs! This breakfast pizza sounds & looks delicious! Definitely need to try it!

  16. This sounds like such an amazing breakfast recipe! i love breakfast for dinner too, and this would be the perfect dish.

  17. This sounds so yummy. It would make such a wonderful breakfast for my family. Only thing is, I would have to cook the eggs a little bit longer.

  18. This sounds so good. I love every ingredient. Great way to get some veggies to start your day. Thank you so much for sharing this

  19. You had me at “pizza!” This look like a great recipe that my entire family would enjoy! It combines eggs and pizza–some of our favorite things to eat! 🙂

  20. I love this recipe, it has my favorite ingredients in it and it looks easy to make, I can have all my favorites for breakfast
