- Precook Meat: If using raw sausage or bacon, precook it until it’s almost done before adding it to the pizza. This ensures it’s fully cooked when the pizza is ready.
- Crack Eggs Carefully: To prevent egg spillage, crack each egg into a small bowl first, then gently transfer it to the well on the pizza.
- Experiment with Toppings: Feel free to customize your breakfast pizza with your favorite ingredients like mushrooms, spinach, or different cheese varieties.
- Doneness of Eggs: Bake the pizza until the egg whites are set, but the yolks are still slightly runny for a perfect breakfast pizza experience.
