Hashbrown Breakfast Pizza

Growing up, one of our favorite things to have for dinner was breakfast! We loved anything from pancakes to waffles and French toast to fried eggs. French toast was my dad’s specialty and it is what he would make us on those rare occasions when my mom wasn’t home to make dinner. My husband and kids love breakfast anytime of the day. Our favorites include omelets, egg bakes, pancakes and breakfast sandwiches. And of course, everyone’s favorite side dish is breakfast potatoes! Potatoes are kid-friendly because they taste good. Mom’s love them because they are easy to prepare and it is a great way to sneak in some nutrition!

Last week, kids in Minnesota had Thursday and Friday off and they were all so excited. Vanessa went to stay with a friend on Friday night and Zack had a friend stay over here. On Saturday morning, I made this delicious breakfast pizza with a hash brown crust!

This recipe starts with Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns. Simply Potatoes are my go-to potatoes for family breakfast solutions, but I also use them in casseroles and when I make soups like my slow cooker chicken pot pie soup. I love the convenience! There’s nothing to peel or shred and I save on dishes.

Easy Breakfast Pizza Recipe

To make this easy breakfast pizza, spread the Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns out on a stoneware pizza pan. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons of melted butter, sprinkle with salt and pepper, if desired. Bake at 425 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

While the crust is baking, fry 8 slices of bacon and scramble 3 eggs. Remove the crust from the oven and sprinkle with the scrambled eggs. Next, crumble the bacon and sprinkle it over the eggs. Follow the bacon with the diced ham and any other toppings your family loves such as onions, peppers or mushrooms. Finally, top it all with shredded cheese.

 My family loved having a delicious, warm, cheesy breakfast! I love how easy it was to make. It was such a big hit that I am going to make it for dinner one night when everyone is home to enjoy it. Also, with the holidays just around the corner, this would be a great meal to serve overnight guests!

    It would be great to have the photo of the food on the recipe. So many times I forget just what the end is going to look like and the photo helps alot.

    I made this last night for my small family of 7….it was a huge success even with all my picky little eaters!

    I just made this and let me tell you, this is so good!!! thanks so much for sharing! I changed things a little because I read Rosemary Davis comment and it sounded good. Thank you!

    I just made this recipe on my pizza stone with a few changes:
    1/2 bag frozen hash browns and thawed in the microwave.
    Melt 2T butter in larger bowl – add hash browns to butter -add salt and pepper to taste and mix by hand. Pat it out on pizza stone -not too thick
    Baked at 425 on pizza stone for 25 min.
    While baking I fried ground sausage with chopped frozen onion and chopped red peppers – then let it set to drain in fine strainer.
    Scramble 4 eggs seasoned with garlic salt – but leave them very soft.
    Top hash browns with sausage mixture, then top with softly scrambled eggs.
    Sprinkle with shredded Mexican style cheese.
    Bake 15 minutes.
    It was wonderful.

    Can you use fresh potatoes that are grated as hash browns? I realize that this post is a commercial for Simply Potatoes but we prefer to use fresh unprocessed ingredients when possible. The recipe looks great.

    I made this on Christmas morning and it was a hit! I used half a bag of frozen hash browns (for those who asked about in previous posts) and it came out perfect. I also just scrambled the egg and poured the egg over the crust once baked and added the toppings and baked again as instructed instead of of scrambling and cooking prior to baking a second time. The result was very tasty. Thank you for sharing this recipe, it’s a keeper for sure!!

    OMG!!! Just made this for our breakfast and it is delicious!!! Not a single crumb left! I played with the toppings on it for each persons like or dislike and we all just loved it! Will be on the menu for Christmas night breakfast!

  8. Elle says

    Why does it have to be baked for so long the second time? Don’t the eggs get rubbery after continuing to cook for another 25 minutes? Have you e er tried adding any veggies like onion, peppers? I love crunchy hashbrowns and this sounds neat!

    • Tonia says

      I like the hashbrowns to be well done, the cheese has to melt and the ham has to get hot. My eggs did not get rubbery because they were covered with cheese. I have not tried adding veggies because my family is picky but I would love it!

    have you made this ahead? i wanted to bring it for christmas morning to my grandma’s house but i won’t get there until 11 am, do ou think it would hold up if i made the crust and toppings ahead of time, stored them seperately and had her put it al together and bake that morning?

  10. Laura says

    New to using frozen hash browns. Should I thaw them first for this dish…can’t tell and similar recipes with them vary. Excited to make these! I am dipping it in ranch!

    • Tonia says

      My hash browns were not frozen, they are from the dairy department of the grocery store. I haven’t tried making this pizza with frozen hash browns. Let me know how it goes! ~Tonia

    This sounds and looks delicious! I’ve just started reading your blog and love it!
    Have you ever tried a “sauce”? I love country gravy and can’t help to picture it on this pizza! Can’t wait to try! Thanks!!
