Breakfast Pizza Wreath

There's nothing more special than Christmas morning. I know a lot of people who like to wake up early to open presents, but that's never been the case with me. It's the one day of the year when I know I don't have anywhere to be, and I can stay under my heating blanket for as long as I want.

Since there's no rush, there's plenty of time to create fun Christmas morning breakfast. There are a lot of tasty breakfast options, but I try to stick with the holiday theme as much as possible.

The Christmas morning recipe I'm featuring this year is a Breakfast Pizza Wreath. I'm not sure why I didn't think of this sooner. I mean, pizzas already kind of look like wreaths when you're hungry enough. All I had to do was use a circle cookie cutter to take out the center. It doesn't get easier than that.

I also created a bow out of red peppers, and I really think that completed the look. Another unnecessary but cool idea is to add a little dill around the edges. I recently decided that dill is the most underrated, festive-looking herb.

Of course, you can add whatever toppings you please, just like you would with a regular pizza. I see a lot of people commenting on my recipe video that gravy would be a good substitute for pesto as well.

Breakfast Pizza Wreath
  • 1 pizza crust (Wewalka Bistro Pizza Dough is my favorite)
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/2 pound bacon
  • 1/2 pound breakfast sausage
  • 1/4 cup pesto
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • Dill, if desired
  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit; unroll pizza dough and pre-bake for about 8 minutes or until lightly browned
  2. Cook scrambled eggs, bacon, and sausage; set aside
  3. Spoon pesto over pizza crust, and top with mozzarella cheese, scrambled eggs, bacon, and sausage.
  4. Top with parmesan cheese.
  5. Bake an additional 6 to 9 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted.
  6. Cut end of red bell pepper so it looks like a boy, and add to pizza with dill to make it look like a festive wreath.
