Pizza for breakfast is always a good idea. If you’ve never had such a thing as a breakfast pizza, you’re in for a treat! It’s basically a cheesy crust with a runny egg baked on top, and lots of flavorful toppings. I love serving this up on the weekend for brunch.

Using naan bread in this recipe is the definition of SIMPLE. You won’t need to create or use any pizza dough. Just purchase either white or whole wheat naan bread at your local grocery store, pack on the ingredients, and bake!

You’ll need just 8 minutes for baking and several minutes to prepare it all. It’s that simple and is even more flavorful with all the toppings included!

Ingredients Needed

You’ll need just a handful of ingredients to make these pizzas happen. Here’s everything you’ll need: eggs, naan bread, mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese, everything seasoning, avocado, cilantro, and hot sauce (optional).

How to Make Naan Breakfast Pizzas

First, preheat oven to 450F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper and arrange naan breads on top.

Line the mozzarella cheese around the bread, leaving an opening in the center for the egg. Create a “wall” with the cheese to prevent the egg whites from spilling out. Crack the egg and carefully place in the center.

Sprinkle over top with parmesan cheese and everything bagel seasoning. Then bake uncovered for 8 minutes, broil on HIGH for 30 additional seconds to brown the cheese. Egg should be slightly runny.

Dress with toppings: avocado slices, chopped cilantro, and hot sauce.

Helpful Recipe Tips

Avoid a runny egg mess: in a couple of recipe tests, I noticed it was easy for the egg whites to escape the pizza and get all over the pan. To avoid this, create a “nest” with the cheese around the naan bread. So when you crack the egg, it is kept in place and can’t run off the bread.

Different naan breads to use: you can use white naan or make it healthier and use whole wheat naan. I’ve also found garlic flavored naan at my local whole foods which is just as tasty!

Extra toppings: you can also top this pizza with chopped cooked bacon, fresh salsa, fresh chopped basil, dried oregano, red pepper flakes, and basil pesto.

One egg per naan: I try not to overload the naan breads because if they are too packed, the egg whites usually run off and it can get pretty messy. Try to keep it one egg per naan bread (depending on the size of course).

Do I have to use everything seasoning? If it’s available at your local grocery, I recommend it because it’s an all-in-one seasoning. A lot of grocery stores have it in the seasoning section. If you don’t have it available, then sprinkle onion flakes & garlic powder with some sesame seeds or poppy seeds if desired.

If you’re a fan of pizza and avocado toast, I think you will absolutely love this combo of both. It’s cheesy, garlic-y, and I mean c’mon – who doesn’t love a runny egg on cheesy bread? The best.

Happy brunching!
