If you're going to serve pizza for breakfast, this is the way to do it. Our Pizza Breakfast Skillet features a kid-favorite crust made from crispy potato tot crowns. The crust gets topped with lots of fluffy eggs, cheese, and pepperoni. You don't have to worry about anyone skipping breakfast with this one!

What You'll Need

  • 1 (30-ounce) package frozen potato tot crowns, slightly thawed
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 12 slices pepperoni
  • Italian seasoning for sprinkling

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Coat a 9-inch cast iron skillet with cooking spray.
  2. Line the bottom and sides of skillet with potato crowns (see Note). Gently smash potatoes with a spoon. Bake 20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk eggs, salt, and pepper.
  4. In a medium skillet over medium heat, melt butter; add eggs and scramble until almost firm. Remove cast iron skillet from oven and top with cheddar cheese. Spoon scrambled eggs on top of cheddar cheese, then sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Top with pepperoni slices and sprinkle with Italian seasoning. Place cast iron skillet back in oven and bake 8 to 10 more minutes, or until cheese is melted.


You don't need a whole bag of potato tots, so just place the extra back in the freezer for another time.

I don't have a cast iron skillet. Can I use a 9" glass pie dish?

Hi there! Yes! You can use a 9-inch deep dish pie plate. (Make sure it's deep dish!)

I loved this idea! The crowns are my favorite style of hash browns and I thought this was such a fun way to use them. I would probably drizzle mine with ketchup and change out the pepperoni for bacon next time, to make it even more breakfasty.
