Step one: roast the tomatoes for the breakfast pizza topping
Make the roasted tomatoes in just a couple minutes. If youre working with fresh pizza dough, then pre-bake the dough while youre making the tomatoes. Scroll down for tips on prepping the pizza dough.
To roast the tomatoes, take out two cups of cherry tomatoes, olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic, and a little butter.
Add cherry tomatoes and olive oil to a large pan on the stove on medium heat. Stir regularly for about three minutes, until cherry tomatoes begin to soften and wrinkle.
Once tomatoes wrinkle, add garlic and butter, and reduce heat to medium-low.
Stir roasted cherry tomatoes with garlic for 30-60 seconds.
Preserve the garlic butter in the pan - it will be used for the breakfast pizza sauce. Set the roasted tomatoes aside.

Step two: prepare the pizza dough
If youre working with premade crust, like the one from Trader Joes in the photo above, then you wont need to pre-bake the dough before adding the toppings. But I do recommend adding a little olive oil to the bottom and edges of the premade crust so it cooks better in the oven. Especially if youre cooking the brunch pizza on a sheet pan.
If youre working with fresh dough, see my post, how to make pizza with store bought dough. That post has my popular video tutorial on how to stretch and par-bake dough.
To prep fresh dough for breakfast pizza, youll first cook the dough naked. Set the oven to 450 degrees. Stretch the fresh dough and put it on a baking sheet drizzled with olive oil. Par-bake the dough for 7 minutes without any toppings. Remove the dough from the oven and then move on to the next steps.

If youre in a bind for dinner and wondering how to make frozen pizza more interesting, just add eggs!
During the final 5-8 minutes of baking frozen pizza, take it out of the oven and drop eggs on the pizza. For egg security purposes, you can try adding shredded cheese in a circle before dropping the raw egg on the pizza. This will create an egg well so the egg stays in place. Place the pizza back in the oven and cook until egg reaches the desired level of cooked - at least until the egg white completely sets.
