"Working at a pizza joint, I bring home pizza a lot. Most of it gets tossed or friends eat it. I made this recipe growing up making changes as I go. I believe it is good enough to share now! Try with your favorite pizza! Top eggs with shredded Cheddar cheese if desired." — Stephanie Murrile

salt and black pepper to taste
Pizza eggs! You know, I've been making these ever since I heard about it from my favorite show, Weeds. One of my most favorite breakfasts since then and my kids especially go nuts over this. My husband likes his with leftover meat lovers, my kids like theirs with leftover pepperoni but me? I like it with leftover veggie pizza. I don't add italian seasoning to mine but it's all a matter of taste and what you prefer. Really yummy treat for the morning. NOTE: I do not take the toppings off my pizza. I just cut up the whole piece and warm it in the pan with a little butter before adding the eggs. If you do this, you might find that one piece will be plenty.
OMG - who knew pizza and eggs could make such a wonderful combination! This was so good and what a great way to use up leftover pizza - besides the obvious of just eating cold or reheating it and eating it. I omitted the oil as I never cook my eggs in oil, but other than that I didn't change a thing. We had leftover sausage and pepperoni pizza and boy was this an unexpected treat. You could easily but this inside a tortilla for a really awesome breakfast wrap! This recipe is a definite keeper!
1st time I heard of this was on the tv show weeds. Love it and gives me something to do with the left over pizza cause the crust gets to nasty on the 2nd day to eat. I sometimes add a little extra pizza sauce into the eggs too.
This was good, and a great way to use up leftover pizza. I used red pepper flakes instead of black pepper, didn't use the salt, and added a bit of garlic powder. I agree that you probably don't need the Italian seasoning like the other reviewer said. Served with a side of green habanero sauce and mmmmmm, I'm in heaven. Thanks for the recipe!
We never have left over pizza in my house for very long as we are pizza fanatics, it usually doesn't survive until morning as someone gets up in the night and eats. But I make homemade pizza often so I usually have a lot of pizza toppings, I just threw in some of my homemade sauce, some cheese, some turkey pepperoni and onions, green peppers, black olives and mushrooms...to taste...was delicious, doesn't really require looking at a recipe though, but this is something I will make a lot in the future.
I LOVE these! Fabulous idea! I've made them with & without the crust. Love it both ways!
I love cold pizza for breakfast and I love eggs - just never thought of cooking the two together. I read with interest about this recipe on "thebuzz". I had leftover Tuscany Chicken Pizza and decided to give it a try. The dish had a lot of flavor and I ate it with fresh tomato slices. It was interesting - I still love the two ingredients, but enjoy them best individually. Thanks smurrile for sharing your creative recipe.
