Eggs, cheese and veggies baked on a Simply Potatoes® Hash Browns crust. This tasty twist on pizza is sure to brighten up your breakfast or brunch.
What better way to wake up than to a breakfast pizza loaded with hash browns, eggs, and cheese. Breakfast pizza is a great crowd pleasing breakfast that can be customized to fit the needs of everyone in your family.
Every slice of pizza is packed full of protein and makes a great filling breakfast. Any leftovers can be tightly wrapped up in plastic wrap and frozen for up to 4 weeks for an easy recipe to go.
What takes this pizza to another level is the hash brown crust. It’s crispy, tasty and holds up the eggs and cheese very well. We like to use Simply Potatoes® Hash Browns because they are made with real ingredients and with fresh never frozen potatoes. They also make it easy to prep this recipe in less time and require no shredding or peeling.
For this pizza I used their O’Brien hash browns because they have onion, red and green bell peppers shredded in the mix. The sweetness of the red peppers adds a great flavor to the pizza. You can also use their Southwest style hash browns which include jalapeno peppers and spices along with the onion, red and green bell peppers. Their regular hash browns make a great pizza too! It all depends on what you’re in the mood for and what variety you are able to find at your local supermarket.
For the crust I use a bag of hash browns, 1/2 cup shredded cheese and 2 small or 1 large eggs. I like to top my breakfast pizza with veggies or spinach but sausage or turkey bacon are also excellent choices. I used 5 small eggs for a pretty large pizza but 4 large eggs will also be enough!
The crust is first baked for 20 minutes until it’s golden and crispy. This is done first so it holds up well because the eggs and topping don’t take as long to bake. After adding your toppings, bake for another 12-15 minutes or until the egg whites are hard and the cheese is melted.

- 1 bag 20 oz Simply Potatoes® Hash Browns any variety
