How To Make Tater Tot Breakfast Pizza
Line the bottom of a greased 12-inch cast iron skillet with tater tot crowns (flat, round tater tots sometimes called potato crowns) and then line the sides of the pan.
Bake the tater tots for 15 minutes.
Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat.
Whisk together the eggs and a sprinkle of salt and pepper.
Cook the eggs until just set (they will cook more in the oven).
Remove the tater tots from the oven and use a spatula to press down on top and sides of the crust to smash the tater tots a bit.
Top with one cup of shredded cheddar cheese.
Top with the scrambled eggs.
Next, sprinkle with cooked, crumbled sausage.
Add another layer of shredded cheddar cheese.
Finally top the tater tot breakfast pizza with cooked, crumbled bacon.
Bake for an additional 10 minutes.
Tater Tot Breakfast Pizza FAQs
1. Can I use regular tater tots?

This Tater Tot Breakfast Pizza with crispy potatoes, fluffy scrambled eggs, melted cheese, spicy sausage and crispy bacon is an awesome way to start the day!
Love this recipe. I added pepperoni, green onions and red pepper to make it look festive. It was fantastic! Theres so many things that can be done to this recipe. Could even make it a Mexican dish with taco meat as one if the layers. Great ideas! I even purchased a cast iron skillet just for this dish. I loved that too. Thanks so much.
Thank you so much! I’m delighted to hear that you enjoy it as much as we do!
Made this tonight for dinner, just made 1 change, and thats adding spinach while cooking the eggs! It was DELICIOUS, thank you!!
Can this be made the day before ?
Yes, you can make it the day before. The tater tots won’t be as crispy when reheated.
Not having bacon or sausage on hand I diced turkey pepperoni in place of the meat. Then when it was done in the oven I drizzled pizza sauce on top.

I need to feed a crowd – if I triple the recipe & use a roaster pan how long wld I have to bake it
The tater tots should bake in 16-18 minutes as long as they are in a single layer in the pan. Once you add the toppings, you only need to bake it until the cheese is melted and the eggs are heated through. I’m guessing that 10 minutes will be enough just like in the single pan.
Joan Carney says
Has anyone tried making this with Veggie Tots?
Amanda Brock says
So I made this for the first time tonight and I sauté my peppers and onions then added my eggs to scramble it all together. I didn’t have bacon so I did a pound of breakfast sausage and it was delicious. I did add more time to my tater tots to add more crispy to them before I added my stuff on top. I also double my eggs and it was delicious!!! Thanks for sharing this!
Did you guys cook sausage and bacon before baking, or just crumble it in?
Yes, the sausage and bacon are cooked first and then crumbled before adding them to the pizza.

How much bacon and sausage = 3/4 cup ?

do u know how many calories in this recipe
I made this in an 8×8 pan. I thought it was just ok.
So simple but so yummy! Thanks for sharing!
We made this in our Dutch oven camping. It was awesome. We used diced ham, sausage crumbles and bacon bits. It cooked up beautifully at 350F for 20-25 minutes. We used the leftovers in breakfast burritos the next morning! Thanks for this awesome recipe!
Love this recipe! I premake this for our camping/ice fishing excursions. Make it to the point of putting back in the oven and freeze it, then bake it frozen 375 FOR 45 mins or so.
Do you happen to know the calorie count per slice? I love this pizza!
Kathy Campbell says
I made this in a baking pan. I did add more eggs and more bacon then sausage. My husband and I enjoyed it, and will be making it again. Thank you for sharing it.
I made this today. I had regular tator tots so I partially cooked them then cut in half the long way. Easy to make and I think you could make this with veggies like tomato onion pepper and TVP crumbles if you don’t eat meat. Or change it up with spinach and crumbled feta and sun dried tomatoes on top. Lots of options with this recipe.
Love this pizza, so creative! To satisfy our desire for a spicy flavor I spread a layer of Philly Spicy Jalapeno Cream Cheese on the tator tots before adding the other toppings. Also cooked up scallions and mushrooms in the sausage! This was even better than any breakfast casserole we’ve ever made! Very moist, yet stable when served and lots of great flavor!

Could you possibly make this in a glass baking pan?
Yes! It most certainly could be. Enjoy!
