Make your Easter brunch egg-stra special by serving this adorable Breakfast Pizza Chick made with scrambled eggs, ham, and cheese. It is super easy to decorate using orange peppers and black olives.
I had so much fun creating this adorable egg-shaped breakfast pizza chick and I think it would be the perfect dish to serve for Easter brunch, a baby shower, or a Sunday morning breakfast.
It will look great served with Hatching Chick Hard Boiled Eggs, Bunny Feet Deviled Eggs, and Crescent Roll Carrots filled with egg salad.
To make this breakfast pizza chick you'll start by cutting pizza dough into a giant egg shape before topping it with a bit of pizza sauce and your favorite pizza toppings. I chose to use ham and cheese but bacon, sausage, or veggies work great too.
Then the vibrantly yellow scrambled eggs go on top before adding two black olive eyes and an orange pepper beak and feat.
- black olives - Two jumbo olives will be used as the eyes.
- orange bell pepper
- store-bought pizza dough or homemade pizza dough
- salt and pepper
- pizza sauce
- ham or bacon cut into small pieces
- shredded sharp cheddar cheese
non-stick tin foil-lined baking sheet
BREAKFAST PIZZA CHICK
Roll out the pizza dough onto a baking sheet that is lined with non-stick tin foil or tin foil that is sprayed with baking spray.
Cut the dough into a giant egg. Cut the remaining dough into long ¼-inch to ½-inch strips and place them around the outer edge of the egg.
Bake at 400 degrees F. until golden brown, about 8-10 minutes.
Then, top with pizza sauce, ham, and cheese and bake just until the cheese melts.
Make scrambled eggs and sprinkle them on top.
Cut out two feet and a beak from orange peppers and arrange them along with two olive eyes on the Breakfast Pizza Chick.
It's ready to serve.
- Adding an egg yolk to the scrambled eggs will add a nice richness, so don't just through the extra egg white back into the mix.
- If needed, you can assemble the pizza and then reheat it when ready to serve. It is very important that you not overcook the eggs if you plan to do this.
- I added the edge around the pizza crust to hold all the toppings inside. It helps, but you can leave it off if you prefer.
- If you add pepper to your eggs, you will have black flecks in your chick. You may want to simply add a pepper shaker to the table.
You can make a Breakfast Pizza Bunny for Easter instead or in addition to the Breakfast Pizza Chick. The bunny is topped with cheese to make it look furry. They'd look so cute together on your Easter brunch table.

- 2 large black olives
- 1 orange bell pepper
- 1 tube pizza dough or homemade pizza dough
- 8 Eggland's Best Large Eggs
- 3 tablespoons half-and-half
- pinch of salt
- optional pepper
- 1 tablespoon butter
- ¼ cup pizza sauce
- 3 slices ham or bacon cut into small pieces
- 1 ½ cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Cut black olives in half, discarding the two halves with the big hole in the middle.
Cut the orange pepper into one beak and two feet for the chick pizza.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Line a baking pan with non-stick tin foil or parchment paper.
Unroll pizza dough onto the pan.
Cut out two ½ inch strips from one long edge of the dough.
Then cut a large egg shape from the dough, using a parchment paper template if needed.
Separate one egg and brush some of the egg white over the egg shaped pizza dough.
Discard remaining egg white.
Line the edge of the egg shaped dough with the two strips of dough, cutting off the excess.
Bake for 8-10 minutes until golden brown.
Meanwhile, combine the remaining 7 eggs and 1 egg yolk with the half-and-half, salt, and pepper, if using.
Put butter in a 10 or 12 inch non-stick skillet and set over medium high heat.
As the butter begins to melt, swirl it around the bottom of the pan.
Once the butter has completely melted, add the eggs.
Use a rubber spatula to continuously scrape the bottom and sides of the pan until the eggs begin to clump together.
Once the eggs are cooked about half way, turn the heat down to low and continue to fold the eggs until clumped and slightly wet.
Remove from heat. Do not overcook the eggs.
Take pizza crust from oven and top with pizza sauce, ham, and shredded cheese.
Pop back in the oven for 3-4 minutes until the cheese melts.
Break up the scrambled eggs into small pieces.
Spread the eggs over the pizza and pop in the oven for 2-3 minutes just until heated through.
Move the pizza to a cutting board or serving platter, add the olive eyes, the orange pepper beak and feet and serve.
