Who doesn’t love a breakfast pizza? Especially a pita bread breakfast pizza! Maybe it’s just nostalgia, but I recall craving, absolutely craving, breakfast pizza growing up.
Pita bread breakfast pizza in 30 minutes
This recipe uses pita bread for the pizza crust, a trick I first learned from It’s a Veg World After All. Lizzie’s recipe for 15-minute arugula Parmesan pita pizzas is surprisingly satisfying for such few ingredients.
I decided to run with this idea for pita bread breakfast pizza for an even more complete meal. The egg topping gets you your protein, and the sweet peppers complementing spicy radishes get you your veggies. It doesn’t come together in 15 minutes, but it is relatively fast to prep. Having pre-cooked bacon on hand also saves time.
Equipment for pita bread breakfast pizza
All the usual suspects are at play for this recipe: chef’s knife, cutting board, whisk, medium skillet, and spatula. A silicone basting brush also comes in handy for getting the oil on the pita bread evenly, but you can also just drizzle the oil.
Practical tips for pita bread breakfast pizza
Once you cook your veggies and eggs, set them aside and then place the pita bread in the oven on its own. Alternatively, you could already have the pita bread in the oven while cooking, but it doesn’t take long for it to crisp up—so keep an eye on it and remove promptly.
Top the pita bread with the eggs and cheese, put it all back in the oven, and cook until the cheese is melted (about 5 minutes).
Substitutions for pita bread breakfast pizza
You don’t have to use bacon and mushrooms in your breakfast pizza. Use your favorite pizza toppings instead—fresh basil would be great here!
You can also use naan or flatbread instead of pita bread (also called pita pockets). In fact, when I made this breakfast pizza for my parents in upstate New York, I used a whole wheat flatbread, which worked wonderfully with no needed modifications to the recipe.
I hope you enjoy this pita bread breakfast pizza with sweet peppers! And please don’t forget to rate and review in the comments if you try it out.

Pita Bread Breakfast Pizza with Sweet Peppers and Radishes
- chef's knife
- cutting board
- medium bowl
- medium skillet
- wooden spoon or spatula
- basting brush
- 4 mini sweet peppers, seeds removed and peppers sliced
- 3 large radishes, sliced and halved
- 3 tbsp olive oil, separated
- 3 large mushrooms, rinsed, peeled, and sliced then halved
- 2 tsp dried onion
- 4 large eggs, beaten
- 2 pieces pita bread
- ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 2 slices bacon, cooked and chopped
- 1 tsp dried basil
- salt and pepper, to taste
- Move the rack to the middle of the oven and preheat to 400°F (200°C).
- For the pizza, heat the skillet on medium-high, and then add 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. Let the oil heat up, and then add the mushrooms and dried onion. Sauté until the mushrooms have released most of their moisture. Heat 1 tablespoon more of the olive oil (or none at all if your skillet is still oily or you’re using a non-stick skillet). Add the beaten eggs, and scramble for about a minute or until they’ve reached desired doneness.
- Brush the remaining 1 tablespoon of the olive oil onto one side of each piece of pita bread. Place the bread directly on the oven rack. Heat for 3–4 minutes, and then remove the bread.
- For the vegetarian, top one piece of bread with the egg mixture. For the omnivore, add the bacon on top of the egg mixture. Top both pizzas with the cheese, and sprinkle with the basil and salt and pepper to taste. Return the pitas to the oven, again placing them directly on the rack, and heat until the cheese has melted, about 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve with the sweet peppers and radishes, drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with salt and pepper.
