Garlic and Basil Egg Breakfast Pizza with Onions and Peppers
Sometimes, you just get tired of plain ole scrambled eggs in the morning. Eggs make a great start to the day since they are packed with protein. Protein helps your body build and also repair tissue. Protein is also a great source for helping the body fight infection, generating hormones, and forming enzymes. Scrambling plain eggs gets old, so I decided to mix it up for a very tasty breakfast with a hot out of the oven Garlic and Basil Egg Breakfast Pizza!

The Garlic & Basil Egg Breakfast Pizza is packed with flavor and protein. A very filling breakfast, to say the least! Using Nellie’s Free Range Eggs, I created this recipe to have a new way to make my morning eggs other than just plain scrambled eggs. It has been a big hit in our home.
1 refrigerated pizza crust (13.8-ounce can)
2 tablespoons olive oil (halved)
2 cloves garlic, minced (halved)
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese
6 whole basil leaves
1 cup frozen onion pepper blend
2 Nellie’s Free Range Eggs
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Lightly coat your dutch oven with olive oil.
Unroll pizza crust. Place your dutch oven lid on top of the dough and press down to leave an imprint of the lid in the dough. Remove lid and cut along the indention to cut the dough to fit perfectly in the bottom of your dutch oven.
Place the dough in the dutch oven. Baste the dough with one tablespoon olive oil and half of the minced garlic.
Bake at 350 for 15 minutes or until dough looks fully cooked (but not browned).
While the crust is baking, sautee onions, peppers, and the rest of the garlic in a tablespoon of olive oil until they are sauteed to your liking.
Remove the dutch oven from the oven.
Add onion and pepper mixture to the crust, leaving two pockets for the eggs.
Sprinkle cheese over onions and pepper mixture.
Crack a Nellie’s Free Range Egg into each pocket.
Place basil leaves on top, spread out.
Season with salt and pepper.
Bake for another 15 minutes or until whites of eggs is cooked.
While the crust is in the oven, I sauteed the veggies. The total time from start to finish was 40 minutes with about 20 minutes downtime broke up between the two different cook times.
