As they say, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Although we’ve all craved morning pizza from time to time, it isn’t the healthiest breakfast choice to jumpstart your day. Why? Because pizza can take 6-8 hours to digest. The heavy gluten content in the crust can leave you feeling bloated, uncomfortable, and ready for a nap.

What if there was a way to enjoy pizza for breakfast—without regret?

Try Pinsa: A Healthier Upgrade to Pizza

Pinsa, the Roman-style pizza crust, is revered for its revolutionary recipe and crisp texture. Unlike traditional pizza dough, pinsa is engineered to digest easily with 80% water content and a blend of non-GMO flours (wheat, rice, soy, and sourdough). Pinsa is also free of added fats and sugars, making it as healthy as it is divine.

Pinsa has a universal flavor profile that pairs perfectly with any and all toppings. It can be garnished with whatever your heart desires—even if that calls for a breakfast special.

A Healthy Breakfast Pinsa Recipe

When you use par-baked pinsa crusts, this dish is made faster than you can say presto! Simply top the crust with your ingredients, pop in the oven for a few minutes, and your artisanal breakfast is ready to be enjoyed. This combination of ingredients ensures a lively flavor profile in each bite, guaranteeing a classic American breakfast—with an Italian twist!


  • Eggs: There’s a reason why eggs are the star of most breakfasts. They’re packed with protein and rich in vitamins. Scramble your eggs in a pan before topping them on the par-baked pinsa crust.
  • Sausage: An essential ingredient for meat-lovers, sausage can be sprinkled atop the eggs for extra protein. Try to avoid pork sausage, which is high in calories and fat, and aim for a leaner option, such as turkey or chicken sausage. Cook it the night before to speed up the morning process!
  • Hash Browns: While freshly cooked potatoes are best, using frozen hash browns will save you time in the kitchen. Add however much you’d like to the top of your pie.
  • Cheese: Use your cheese of choice to sprinkle on top of the eggs, sausage, and hash browns!
  • Extras: Finish it off with some salt, pepper, and scallions to taste.

Together, these toppings create a balanced blend of protein, fat, and carbs to wake your body and mind. Who says you can’t eat pizza for breakfast? This recipe will leave you feeling nourished, full of energy, and ready to take on the day!
