Peeps for Breakfast? I’ve enjoyed many a Peep for breakfast, but none quite as satisfying as this
Egg, Ham and Cheese Breakfast Pizza Peeps I made as part of a post sponsored by Wilton.
One of the perks of being a brand ambassador is getting all sorts of fun new products to try out and I am always super excited when the boxes from Wilton arrive. This year they have expanded their line of Peeps shaped bakeware to include a really cool pan which I used to make my breakfast pizza Peep.
I realize the pan was intended for cookies, but you know me, I can’t do what’s intended. It’s more fun to think outside the box and to create something that the inventors of the pan didn’t even imagine.
I’m pretty sure they didn’t expect me to use the pan to make this breakfast pizza.
Being Peeps come in a variety of spring colors these pizzas can be topped with white cheese which allows the yellow eggs to show through or orange cheese or even pink or purple cheese.
What? Who makes pink or purple cheese?
It’s really easy to color grated cheese. Simply pour the cheese into a zip top bag, add a drop of liquid food coloring and shake until all the cheese is colored, adding more coloring if needed.
Wouldn’t it be fun to have a whole bunch of different colored Pizza Peeps on your table this Easter?
You can get creative with your pizza toppings adding anything you like in your eggs.
One thing you might want to do so that your Peeps don’t have spots, like mine do, is to put the meat under the eggs. I mixed the ham into the eggs as I cooked them, so my bunnies have pieces of ham showing through. When I make these again, I’ll be sure to put the ham under the eggs.
Be sure to send me pictures of your Pizza Peeps. I’d love to see how creative you get with this idea.

Slice jumbo olives and cut 3 small circles out. I used a round plunger cutter to cut mine, but you can had cut them, use a small cookie cutter, or simply cut off the ends of the olives and use them.Place the olive circles on your pizza to create two eyes and one nose.
You will have scraps of pizza dough left after making one large Peep pizza and you can simply bake the scraps of dough and enjoy a little snack or you can press pieces of the dough into the new Wilton Silicone Peeps mold. Baked them for about 12 minutes and you’ll have some cute dinner rolls.
I would have shown you a picture of the finished Peeps dinner rolls but they were devoured by some hungry friends who were visiting.
Thankfully they ate those or I might not have gotten a picture of my finished pizza, either.
