A Ricotta Breakfast pizza that’s homemade and full of savory sausage, bacon, and eggs that are topped with gooey cheese is a great way to start off the day!

One of my favorite things about having pizza for breakfast is that it’s a fun spin on the traditional weekday breakfast.

How To Make Ricotta Breakfast Pizza From Scratch

Is there anything better for breakfast then something savory, hearty, and full of gooey cheese?  I don’t think there is!

I know you are thinking who has that time on a weekday morning? I know I don’t and neither do many of you. That’s why I love making breakfast pizza either for dinner. I usually make two at a time. That way I have one for dinner and then one I can eat up during the week for a quick breakfast on the go. 

Of course breakfast pizzas are pretty fantastic on the weekends too!

Do you like to enjoy a slower paced breakfast during the week for dinner? We sure do! If you are looking for other savory breakfast ideas, make sure to check out our frittata recipe! Looking for something a bit sweeter? Our easy muffins will work great anytime of the day!

Before you get started on this yummy recipe, here are a few tips.

Expert Tips, Ingredient List and Suggestions for Recipe Success

  • Meat – you can use any of your favorite breakfast meats on this. Sausage, bacon, hamburger, ham, anything you love would be great.
  • Ricotta cheese – any brand works fine.

Do I Have To Use Sausage?

No, you don’t. You can substitute and do ham and bacon, double bacon, or even hamburger if you choose. It’s totally up to you.

How Do I Make The Crust Crispy?

I precook the pizza dough then I add the toppings and put it back into the oven. 

How Do You Reheat This?

I think it’s better to reheat pizza in the oven at 350 for 10 to 15 minutes. However,  you can also reheat it faster by placing it on a microwave-safe plate, covering it with a plastic plate cover, and reheating it for a minute at a time until it’s the temp you prefer. 

Step by Step Directions:

The full instructions are below as well as a printable ingredient list. The basics are as follows:

Step 1: Preheat your oven to the degrees recommend on the pizza crust.

Step 2: Brown Sausage and drain. 

Step 3: Cook bacon until crispy. Let cool so you can crumble. 

Step 4: Whisk together the eggs in a medium sized bowl and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Make sure you add some milk to your egg mixture before cooking so you get nice fluffy eggs.

Step 5: Then in a heated and prepared skillet, lightly scramble the eggs and cook them until they are almost set. DO NOT fully cook the eggs.

Step 6: Add ricotta cheese, one egg and seasonings to a mixing bowl and mix well.

Step 7: While everything is cooking, spray your baking pan.  Roll out your pizza dough onto any size baking sheet you wish to use.  I used a Nonstick Medium Cookie Pan.

Step 8: Bake your pizza crust for about 5-8 minutes. 

Step 9: Take out of the oven and spread ricotta cheese mixture evenly over the pizza crust.

Step 10: Add egg, bacon and sausage.

Step 11: Cover with mozzarella cheese.  You can sprinkle with a bit more salt and pepper if you’d like.

Step 12: Bake 425° until crispy and cheese is melted.  I like crispier cheese so I do mine until it’s a bit  brown.  About 12-15 minutes.

Step 13: Let sit for a few minutes before cutting and enjoy!
