These Cheesy Naan Breakfast Pizzas are everything you want for breakfast and more! They’re loaded with cheese, crispy sausage, veggies and topped with a runny egg!
This post was originally published in June 2018. I’ve updated the photos and improved the recipe instructions!
I remember my first experience with naan bread was actually baking pizzas on them. Since then, of course I always eat fresh naan alongside dishes like Chickpea Curry or of course, my favorite Easy Chicken Tikka Masala but….my heart still holds a special place for naan pizzas!
They’re so simple, easy and ULTRA delicious!
Why You’ll Love These Pizzas:
First off, can we just talk about how we get to have pizza for breakfast?! Is that not just the best thing ever or is it just me?
I love how EASY these Cheesy Naan Breakfast Pizzas are! No homemade pizza dough or sauce required! There’s no kneading, no food processing..just EASY. That’s what we all need in the morning, right?
You know, when you can barely even turn on the coffee pot without tripping over shoes you forgot to put up. Or maybe you accidentally fell asleep with your contacts in and you literally feel like your eyes will never be back to normal. Yeah, an easy morning sounds good to me.
Did I mention the flavors are dynamite? Seriously, I could already eat Garlic Herb Naan on it’s own (probably too many pieces…) but once you load it with all of the breakfast goods, the flavors fuse together and you come out with this caramelized, cheesy goodness with the fresh veggies and yummy breakfast meat that will leave you satisfied allll morning long.
I love the savory spicy breakfast sausage that adds SO much flavor. The cheese of course, I mean, HELLO! The crunchy red onion and of course, fresh jalapeno if you like it spicy! But my favorite thing has to be the buttery fried egg on top!
The fried egg on top creates this runny liquid golden yolk that covers the entire pizza and oh my worddddd it’s GOOD.
And I really mean that. This is coming from a girl who needs to eat probably every 2 hours. This meal will definitely keep you full all the way up to lunch!
Ingredients you Need for Cheesy Naan Breakfast Pizzas:
- garlic naan bread
- cheese (mozzarella or sharp white cheddar)
- diced red onion
- cooked breakfast sausage
- olive oil
- fresh basil and red pepper flakes (for garnish!)
How to Make Naan Breakfast Pizzas:
Preheat the oven to 475 degrees. While that’s pre-heating, cooking your sausage in a pan until done. Drain if necessary and set this aside. While you wait, slice your toppings! I used red onion and jalapeno!
Once the oven is preheated, add a piece of garlic naan bread to a baking sheet. Drizzle with 1 tbsp of olive oil. Top with 1/3 cup of cheese. Add your cooked sausage and toppings. Add more cheese to the toppings. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Garnish with fresh basil and red pepper flakes!
Once the pizza is done, crack an egg in a skillet with lots of butter. Cook until the whites are cooked through and then gently slide the egg on top of the pizza.
*This recipe originally gave instructions to cook the raw egg in with the pizza but I found after re-testing it that the pizza crust burnt too quickly before the egg could fully cook – so I altered the instructions!*
I must say, the best thing about this naan pizza is the egg. Yes, the glorious runny, salty and delicious egg. When you slice the pizza, the egg yolk runs and you’re able to just soak it up using the crust and oh my lanta it’s a glorious experience. It will truly make your morning a million times better.
Pizza Topping Ideas:
I personally loved this pizza with red onion, jalapeno and spicy sausage. Here are a few other ideas:
- Green bell pepper
- Roasted red peppers
- Feta cheese
- Italian sausage
- Fresh spinach
These would be perfect in the morning or whenever you’re feeling breakfast for dinner vibes. You could also make a couple for brunch on the weekend. Just don’t forget to serve with mimosas! 🙂 XO – Haylie

Can I just say how much I love your golden cutlery — so pretty! And the breakfast pizza looks pretty good too:)
Thank you, Bri! My husband got it for me for Christmas this past year at Target!
I’m not normally a breakfast person however I’d happily eat this anytime for breakfast! Looks Yummy. I will definitely be giving this a try.
Yay! This makes me so happy. Hope you enjoy!
I am adding the ingredients for this to my grocery list. Yum!
Woohoo! That makes me so happy to hear, Ashley!! 🙂
Haylie, I’m loving this breakfast pizza! So easy and of course – the cheese! That runny egg on top is everything!
Thank you Kelly!! And yes- runny eggs are everything!! 😉
That looks so good…it is really my kind of breakfast.
Thank you so much, Karen! 🙂
You had me at cheesy :). Pizza for breakfast is always a good thing!
LOL! Cheese + pizza for breakfast – can’t be beat! 🙂
You are hilarious, Haylie! We both definitely love cheese, don’t we 😉 ?? This is my kinda breakfast and the flavours really do sound AMAZING! Your egg looks perfectly cooked too. Honestly, I could eat this for dinner (and maybe lunch too) and call it a day! Hope you have a fab week, my friend 🙂
Yes!! We love cheese…what can we say?! 😉 Thank you Dawn!!
WOW! Is this a treat or what?!!!! Naan pizza for breakfast? I’m in!!
Right?! Brunch goals!! Thanks, Annie 🙂
You’re a genius! How have I never tried naan for breakfast? This looks so good, Haylie!! That egg looks absolutely perfect!
Thank you so much, Katherine! You’re too kind 🙂
This was delicious. I didn’t have the right ingredients or large enough naan, but this served as good inspiration. We had leftover ham we substituted for the sausage, used sharp cheddar, and added thin sliced tomatoes. I baked the naan with the toppings, but cooked the egg on the stove top since we just had mini naan bread. When the naan was done, I topped with microgreens, then the runny egg. Thanks for the delicious breakfast inspiration!
Hey Amanda! Yum! Loving all of those additional ingredients you added….sounds so delicious and glad you were able to make it your own 🙂 Thank you for the kind review!
Really tasty! I like how the naan bread crisps up on the bottom. The whole family enjoyed immensely!
Yay! Thank you so much, Holly! 🙂 So glad the whole family enjoyed!
I really enjoyed this. It was a neat way to use excess naan and was a great way to wake up. But I microwaved the naan instead of baked to save time and mess. Don’t microwave. It made the naan hard and chewy. Next time I’ll use the oven like the instructions said.
Thank you for the awesome review, Ed! So glad you enjoyed these 🙂
Looks amazing, definitely trying. Would it work just breaking the egg on top of the naan and then baking?
Hey Stephanie! The original recipe called to do just that but I found that the outside of the naan got crispier (and almost burnt) way quicker than the egg could cook fully through so I altered the recipe. If you do want to try that, I would recommend turning the heat down to 400 degrees or so and see if that helps. You could also try cover the outside of the naan with aluminum foil to prevent burning. Hope that helps! -Haylie
Did you use a cold egg or bring it to room temperature first? Maybe that’s the difference. The recipe sounds wonderful!
Hi Randi, for this recipe I usually just use a cold egg. Great idea to let it come to room temp first!! Thanks!! -Haylie
I added salsa under the cheese to take it up a notch.
Yummm! Love that idea, Lorne! Thanks for making the recipe 🙂
