Breakfast Pizza Bagels!

Breakfast Pizza Bagels - Ready FAST and so much better than a bowl of cereal! Breakfast is definitely my favorite meal of the day! C and I try to have at least 2 breakfast dates a week (usually just at home, but still…!), and they’re always the perfect way to start off a day! Such a treat :)

I peeped some bagels hiding in the back of our freezer this morning when I was grabbing the coffee, and my brain immediately was like “ding-ding-ding – THAT’S GONNA BE BREAKFAST”. I love bagels! Do you? I can never pass up the chance to gobble one up. Like, never-ever-ever. My hips don’t lie.

After I realized we were fresh out of cream cheese (wtf roomies?!), I decided to pizza these bagels UP. Have you ever made pizza bagels before? They’re super easy to whip up! And if you pop an egg in the middle, it magically becomes breakfast food. POOF! You’re welcome 😉

Are you guys into the runny yolk egg trend? I loooooove it. I think a runny egg on pretty much anything – except like, ice cream… – is pure heaven and bliss. BUT! I know a lot of people – including the very handsome but picky man I keep – are not into the liquid yolk. So! My point of this whole runny vs firm ramble is you can bake it either way when you make your little bagel pizza. If you want a runny yolk, 16 minutes, baby. Like it firm? 20 minutes and you’re solid.

This recipe starts with a – wait for it – BAGEL! This is actually a flagel. Uh huh. Flat bagels for the win! Less bread = MORE cheese. Yay-ah.


*Regular round bagels will work!!! Perfectly.

Then we’re gonna get down to the serious business: toppings! We got our sauce and cheese – pizza staples! And add some slivered jalapeños and pepperoni. Amen.

*You can add whatever the heck you want to your pizza bagel. W-h-a-t-e-v-e-r!

      Hi Agos. A small bit of the white may go down, but mainly the yolk rests in the hole and the white spreads on top. I hope you get some bagels and give this a try :)

    These look great! I’m making some for the kiddos this morning, except they don’t want pizza sauce, (they like egg sandwiches with mayo), so I spread a thin layer of mayo on the bagel instead of sauce. Then added cheese, crumbled bacon & green onion. My whites did seep down the hole a bit, hopefully enough stayed on top. They are baking as I type! ~ Mama Ging

      Hey Jill! How creative – anything with bacon sounds dreamy! The egg white does seep down a bit, but it all bakes up wonderfully in the end. I hope you enjoyed these! xo

    I just popped mine in the oven. I planned on making bagel pizzas but saw you added an egg for breakfast so I did also. The egg whites did spread underneath the bagel but I figured it would so since I am only making one for myself, I’m using a pie pan covered in foil to contain any mess and for easy clean up. I figure even if the egg runs underneath, it will cook up and still be tasty. I will post an update but I’m sure they will be delish! Trying one with mozzarella cheese and pepperoni and then one with mozzarella cheese and diced deli honey ham :)

      The foil did contain the mess but it was a challenge getting the bagel off since the egg whites almost became a glue. I used a everything bagel which was good and cooked for 20 minutes. The eggs were still runny but I don’t mind. Might take longer than 20 minutes for those that like then set and well done. Overall very tasty! Thanks! :)

      Hi Sarah. So happy to hear you enjoyed the pizza bagel :) Parchment paper is also a great way to make cleaning up easy – and it tends to “stick” less than foil.

    i want to make these to send to camp with my husband. I was going to cook them as directed -16 minutes and then wrap with foil for the men to heat up over the fire. I wonder if I would have to put the top of the bagel on to avoid the cheese and egg sticking and going everywhere?

      Hi Laura. I think putting the top of the bagel on is probably the way to go here. Just to be sure he doesn’t loose all the yummy toppings to the foil 😉
