Quick, Kid-Friendly Breakfast Egg Pizza Recipe

When trying to plan healthy breakfasts for your family, the first food that comes to mind is eggs. The incredible, edible egg!

Scrambled eggs are quick, easy, and nourishing. The perfect solution.

Unless your kids are like mine, and they hate scrambled eggs.

It started when my oldest was very little. She would gag on scrambled eggs, or any eggs for that matter. I figured it was just a phase. But if you could see her attempt to eat scrambled eggs now at almost sixteen years old, you’d know it wasn’t a phase. And don’t even mention the idea of a hard-boiled or fried egg! She shivers just thinking about it.

Unique and Fun Breakfast Idea

My youngest daughter has the same distaste. My boys will tolerate scrambled eggs but would prefer something else.

Considering that we have lots of egg layers roaming around our farm, that’s a problem. Plus I was getting tired of eating leftover cold scrambled eggs (it’s a good thing I’m not picky).

So I had to find a way to feed my kids eggs that comes together quickly and tastes like something other than scrambled eggs.

That is how egg pizza was created!

It’s a budget-friendly, kid-friendly breakfast that comes together in 15 minutes. Perfect for any day of the week. Plus it’s loaded with key nutrients to support your child’s health. All of my scrambled egg haters love it!

Easy Breakfast Pizza Kids Will Love

Breakfast pizza takes the traditional components of pizza and adds eggs to the mix. But everything is so flavorful that even the pickiest of eaters won’t mind.

No need to make a crust. Simply use your favorite bread. Top it with pizza sauce, scrambled eggs, and cheese. Then bake or broil until the cheese is melty and bubbly.

That’s the basic version.

But you can jazz it up or make it as pantry-friendly as you want.

Easy Breakfast Pizza Topping Options

The first time I made breakfast pizza I didn’t have any pizza sauce on hand. So I used ketchup, dried basil, a little garlic powder, and salt. All things I always have on hand.

My kids said it was the best pizza sauce they had ever tasted! So I almost always use our ketchup sauce…even if I have pizza sauce available. Tomato paste would work too if you want to avoid added sugar.

Just the eggs and cheese make a great breakfast pizza. But you can really make it your own with whatever pizza toppings you like:

  • Ham
  • Pepperoni
  • Sausage
  • Ground beef or leftover taco meat
  • Chicken
  • Olives
  • Peppers
  • Onions
  • Spinach

The possibilities are endless!

Protein-Packed Breakfast Pizza

One of the reasons I love breakfast pizza most is the nutrition factor. As a Nutritional Therapist, the nutrient content of the food I serve my kids is always a top priority. Anytime nutrition and kid-friendly food are combined, it’s a winner.

Breakfast pizza contains protein from the eggs and cheese, of course. But you can bump up the protein by adding non-fortified nutritional yeast and some type of meat (such as ham, pepperoni, or sausage). You can even add extra protein with homemade bread made with freshly milled grains.

In addition to quality animal protein, breakfast pizza is packed with vitamins, minerals, complex carbohydrates, and healthy fats. It’s the perfect, healthy, all-in-one breakfast!

Encourage Picky Eaters to Eat Eggs

If you have a picky eater, I know what you’re thinking.

“Ha! My child would not touch that.”

Trust me, I get it. Just because you make a disliked food in a new way does not mean your child will eat it. Especially if it’s related to a texture issue or an oral sensory issue.

I’ve got a solution for you! Simply make the pizza without the eggs. Yes, serve a quick and easy pizza for breakfast. Just make sure you are adding sufficient protein.

As your child gets on board with the idea of pizza for breakfast and this food feels familiar, then consider adding very small amounts of egg over time. You can even mash the egg down so it just blends in with the sauce and cheese. Slow and steady wins the race.

Easy Family Favorite Breakfast

Easy breakfast pizza has quickly become a family favorite in my house. I love that I can get a nutrient-dense breakfast that will keep my kids fueled and filled on the table so quickly.

No need to thaw meat. No need to prep anything the night before. Simply use a few kitchen staples (bread, eggs, ketchup, and cheese) to make a kid-friendly breakfast any day of the week.

This is a great way to send your kids to school or start your homeschool day. Brain food combined with balanced macronutrients – a great way to help your kids think clearly and thrive.

Serve breakfast egg pizza alone or pair it with a butterscotch milkshake, an orange creamsicle smoothie, or fresh fruit. Breakfast is served!

Would your kids jump at the chance to eat pizza for breakfast?
