First off, I’d like to point out that yesterday was apparently National Cheese Day. Even though apparently every single food now deserves a holiday, I can fully support this one. Cheese is truly the best. Forever and ever Amen.
I just had to get that off my chest. Anyway, back to regular programming, folks!
I also 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? 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.
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 Cheesy 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, toppings and leave a hole in the middle for the egg. Crack the egg in the middle. Add more cheese to the toppings and make sure you don’t cover up the egg!! Add salt on top of the egg. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the egg whites are fully cooked through. Garnish with fresh basil and red pepper flakes!
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.
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! 🙂

Cheesy Naan Breakfast Pizzas
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!
- 1 piece garlic naan bread
- 2/3 cup mozzarella cheese (or sharp white cheddar cheese)
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1/4 cup diced red onion
- 1/3 cup of cooked breakfast sausage
- 1 egg
- fresh basil and red pepper flakes to garnish (optional)
- 1/2 jalapeno, sliced
Preheat oven to 475 degrees.
Cook your breakfast sausage in a skillet until done. Dice red onion and jalapeno. Set aside.
Add naan bread to a baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil on top. Add 1/3 cup of cheese and spread it across the naan. Add on the sausage, diced red onion and jalapeno. Leave a small hole in the middle of the crust for the egg. Crack the egg in the middle of the naan. Sprinkle on remaining 1/3 cup of Italian cheese (be sure not to cover the egg!). Add a sprinkle of salt on top of the egg yolk.
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until whites of egg have cooked through. Garnish with crushed red pepper flakes and fresh basil if desired. Enjoy immediately!
Even though my sausage was fully cooked, I did saute it for a few minutes in a pan prior to putting it on the pizza for further caramelization. You don't have to do this - just wanted to be transparent 🙂
