Variations on Crescent Breakfast Pizza
Like any kind of pizza, you can customize the toppings to your liking. Whether you want to swap out the bacon for breakfast sausage, use your favorite cheese (cheddar, gouda, or Swiss would be delish!), or add some veggies (mushrooms, onions, bell peppers), feel free to make this cheesy breakfast pizza your own!
Breakfast pizza is a fun variation on traditional pizza. Here, we use crescent rolls as the dough for a buttery, breakfast-y flavor. Traditional pizza sauce and mozzarella cheese are used, but breakfast toppings such as eggs, bacon, and breakfast potatoes turn this pizza into a craveable breakfast!
You sure can! Simply roll out the crescent rolls, separate them into triangles at the seams, then lay the triangles into a circle and pinch the seams back together! You will be able to make two smaller breakfast pizzas this way!
There’s no need to pre-bake the crescent roll crust here!
It depends! Both the eggs and bacon need to be pre-cooked (as do any other meats you may choose to add), but the potatoes can be left frozen!
Absolutely! I recommend cutting the pizza into individual slices, then wrapping each slice tightly in plastic wrap before freezing!
How to Store and Reheat
You can cook the bacon and eggs up to 1 day in advance and store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to use.
Store leftover crescent roll breakfast pizza in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat gently in the microwave or in a 350°F oven for 5-10 minutes, until warmed through.
How to Freeze
Freeze crescent roll breakfast pizza in individual slices tightly wrapped in 2 layers of plastic wrap and 1 layer of aluminum foil for up to 3 months. Reheat directly from frozen.
If you’re looking for an easy breakfast idea to serve at your next weekend brunch, this crescent roll breakfast pizza is perfect! It serves a crowd and will be a guaranteed favorite at the table. You can also double up the recipe with different toppings to add some variety!
