I saw an article on MSN Money the other day about how Breakfast Pizzas are the new trend. I can’t speak for you all, but Vegan Breakfast Pizzas are now MY new trend! A girl can’t live on oatmeal and apples for breakfast alone, can she?

No, she cannot. Nor would she want to, not with vegan deliciousness like this within reach!

Vegan Breakfast Pizza

So what exactly goes on a Vegan Breakfast Pizza, you might be asking? Well… I guess anything you want, but for this particular breakfast pizza I went with crispy maple tempeh bacon and my healthy-yet-delicious tofu scramble full of peppers and onions. And a few slices of tomatoes. Oh, and some Daiya mozzarella, obvs.

I went with a thinnish crust and still found this to be a very satisfying breakfast. Of course, I’m that crazy person who likes to eat regular pizza (cold!) and leftover Chinese food for breakfast, so I fully realize this might not be everyone’s jam.

It is, however, the new trend, so you may as well get on board now. How’s that for some peer pressure first thing on a Monday?

Vegan Breakfast Pizza


Breakfast Pizza (makes one 12″ pizza)

Ingredients:

  • 8 pieces of smokey maple tempeh bacon (I used Tofurky)
  • 3-4 Tablespoons maple syrup (optional)
  • Applewood smoked sea salt
  • 12″ pizza crust of your choice
  • 2/3 cup red pizza sauce
  • 2/3 cup plus 1+ cup Daiya mozzarella
  • 1 1/3 cup tofu scramble (minus sausage, kale and chives)
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • Oregano
  • Crushed red pepper flakes
  • S&P to taste

Directions:

  1. Fry the bacon in a pan according to package instructions. I also recommend drizzling the pieces with maple syrup as they cook. When they’re done, sprinkle with the smoked sea salt, remove from pan and slice.
  2. Spread pizza sauce evenly over crust, then sprinkle with first 2/3 cup Daiya. Top next with tofu scramble and then the bacon and tomato slices.
  3. Top with the remaining Daiya (to taste), then sprinkle with oregano and crushed red pepper flakes, along with some S&P to taste.
  4. Bake on a pizza stone at 425 for 14-16 minutes until the cheese is all nice and melty.

Enjoy!

    I love cold pizza for breakfast and it doesn’t have to have breakfast type items on it.. give me last nights leftovers and I’m a happy girl!

    This is an ingenious idea! Totally going to try it out with some mushrooms and cashew cheese instead of Daiya.

    • Barb January 21, 2013, 9:16 am

      Mushrooms would be a great addition!

    Seriously? There’s a breakfast pizza trend?…. How have I not heard about this before?…. Well, you know, if it involves baking, and it’s trending, I’ve got to give it a try… Yours, by the way, looks fantastic!

  • Bex @ Vegan Sparkles January 24, 2013, 12:55 am

    bahaha, well anything goes at brunch time, right? It’s OK to eat dessert for brunch, so it’s open season on the pizza! :-)
