Keto Breakfast Pizza

Once upon a time, I would have been horrified at the thought of pizza for breakfast. Because back in the day, that would have mean cold, leftover pizza from the night before, congealing in the fridge or on the counter.

I had many a friend who would swear it was the best cure for a hangover, but the very thought turned my stomach even then. It was just never my thing.

But a freshly baked keto pizza piled high with eggs, bacon, and cheese? Now we’re talking! And I hope you’re listening because this keto breakfast pizza is calling your name.

It’s not fathead dough!

Many of you will be thrilled to know that this breakfast pizza is NOT made with fathead dough. Don’t get me wrong, I have often used mozzarella based dough for keto pizza crust, and think it’s fabulous.

But given that it’s made with cheese, and then the pizza is topped with more cheese, it can all get a bit… cheesy, shall we say? And a bit heavy on the dairy.

This time around, I used my keto focaccia recipe as the basis for the crust, which contains no extra cheese. And with a few basic swaps, you could even make the whole breakfast keto pizza dairy free.

Now, isn’t that nice for a change?

How to make keto breakfast pizza

Okay, so let’s cut to the chase. How do you make a low carb breakfast pizza without fathead dough? Here are my best tips for getting it right:

The crust

Keto focaccia bread is super easy to make. Once the dough is prepped, you simply use wet hands to press it out into a sheet pan. This does take a little time and effort but it will spread out to the full 11×15 inches.

Make sure you line the sheet pan with parchment and then grease the parchment, for easy release. Bake the crust until it’s firm to the touch. Since it’s nice and thin, this takes only about 15 minutes.

The cream sauce

Keto breakfast pizza needs some sauce, but tomato sauce just didn’t feel quite right. So I created a white sauce with cream cheese, cream, and garlic. It adds such great flavor!

The toppings

Eggs are a must on a breakfast pizza, and it’s easy to whip up some scrambled eggs for the top. I highly recommend under-cooking the eggs a bit, since they get cooked more in the oven. They should be just shy of firm curds and not dry.

Now for the tough decision: bacon or sausage? Or both? I went with crumbled bacon this time but oh, the possibilities!

You also have some choice on the cheese too. Cheddar seems right for a breakfast pizza but you could always go with the meltier, gooier mozzarella.

Put it all together

One you have the toppings on there, return the pizza to the oven for a few minutes. This helps melt the cheese and warm everything through. Now you’re ready to dig in!

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you replace the coconut flour?

I really prefer the consistency of the crust with a mix of almond flour and coconut flour. But if you want to skip the coconut flour, you will need an extra full cup of almond flour to replace it. This may make your pizza higher in carbs.

Can you replace the protein powder?

You do need protein powder for the crust to rise properly. However, you can use egg white protein powder, or even plant based protein powder. Just don’t use collagen protein, as it will make the bread gummy and hard to cook through.

Is this good for making ahead?

Yes, actually, it’s a great recipe for meal prep. The leftover heat up surprisingly well! Just store them in an airtight container in the fridge. I don’t recommend trying to freeze this breakfast pizza.

You can also make a smaller recipe by cutting all the ingredients in half and baking it in a 9×9 square baking pan.

How can you make it dairy free?

Just a few easy swaps for a dairy-free keto breakfast pizza: use egg white protein in the crust, and dairy free cream cheese and coconut milk or almond milk in the sauce. Then you can either skip the cheese in the topping or use dairy free cheese shreds.

There you have it! A delicious keto breakfast pizza piled high with your favorite toppings. It’s definitely a must make.
