Inspiration for Smashed Potato Egg Pizza
I love Smashed Potato Pizza Crust, and I'm always inspired to create new delicious combinations of ingredients to top it with.
Who doesn't love crispy potatoes with their bacon and eggs!?
Exactly! Everybody loves it! Which is why it's the crust for this breakfast pizza.
A bite of crispy potato with melting cheese, smoky bacon and creamy egg yolk is enough to get anyone up and out of bed to start the day.
What is a Smashed Potato Pizza?
A smashed potato pizza is a gluten-free pizza with a crust made out of 100% potato.
It can be topped with any ingredients you like, just as a regular pizza would be.
It doesn’t behave quite like a pizza with a typical bread crust. If it gets crispy enough on the bottom, it can be hand held, but it’s often easier to eat with a fork and knife.
What's in Smashed Potato Egg Pizza with Bacon?
The title says it all. Well, in addition to the Smashed Potato Pizza Crust, egg and bacon, it also includes Dubliner cheese and chili flakes.
Can you use another cheese?
Sure! You can use any cheese you'd like. It would also be lovely with a white cheddar or Swiss.
How to Make it
- You can learn how to make the “crust” here, and you can make it up to 6 hours ahead of time.
- Once the crust is ready, sprinkle it with cheese and top it with bacon.
Gently press down on a few areas of the pizza to create shallow "bowls" for the eggs. Carefully crack an egg into each of these areas.
Sprinkle with chili flakes and then bake until the eggs are cooked.
More detailed instructions are below.
I hope you enjoy Smashed Potato Egg Pizza with Bacon as much as my family and I do!
It would be lovely to serve for a lazy Sunday brunch.

I've had roasted potatoes ON pizza before (it's delicious), but I've never had a pizza where the crust is roasted potatoes. This sounds delicious...and genius! This would make for a delicious (and easy) dinner, too. Yum!
I love potatoes ON pizza, too. Thanks! 🙂 ~Valentina
