This Egg and Bacon Breakfast Pizza on Cheesy Hashbrown Crust is the perfect Brunch recipe or breakfast recipe for a crowd.


  • 2 cups hashbrowns (shredded potatoes)
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheese
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup greek yogurt (optional)
  • 1/2 cup bacon, chopped into pieces
  • 1/2 cup arugula
  • 1/2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp chives
  • 1/2 cup sliced mini bell peppers
  • 1/2 an avocado, sliced
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • cooking oil spray or other oil of choice


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a bowl, mix 2 eggs until well scrambled. Add in hashbrowns, paprika, onion powder and 1/2 cup shredded cheese. Mix together well.
  3. Line a baking sheet or pizza pan with parchment paper. Grease well with cooking oil spray or other oil of choice such as melted butter, olive oil, duck fat, etc. If you don’t grease well, the crust will stick!
  4. Mold hashbrown crust onto baking sheet in a circle or square (choice is up to you), season with salt and pepper. Make sure the crust is not thick but not too thin either or it will fall apart. About 1/2 inch works well.
  5. Put the hashbrown crust in the oven for 25 minutes.
  6. In another bowl, scramble the other two eggs then add greek yogurt and combine well. The greek yogurt is optional but it makes really fluffy eggs, you can omit if you like. Add 1/2 tbsp butter to a pan and cook eggs over medium-low, mixing consistently to get soft scrambled eggs, about 5 minutes or cook until desired.
  7. Pull out the hashbrown crust then top with the scrambled eggs, sliced mini bell peppers, chives and remaining 1/4 cup shredded cheese (or other cheese, see notes).
  8. Put pizza back in oven at 400 degrees for about ten minutes until cheese has melted.
  9. Garnish with arugula and Avocado slices.


*I used 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese for the crust and then used slices of sharp cheddar for the top of the pizza. You could simply use 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese if you want or even omit the cheese on top.
The Greek Yogurt is optional in the eggs but I find it makes eggs really fluffy and delicious.
*If you want more toppings, go for it!
