Monster Breakfast Pizza

Make Ahead

When your kids want pizza for breakfast, here’s an easy way to make it in the morning. Simply swap the dinner toppings with cream cheese and fruit, and this perfect breakfast slice of ’za is ready to serve. 


  • 1 tube – refrigerated pizza dough
  • 2 tablespoons – fat-free or low-fat milk
  • 2 tablespoons – sugar
  • 3 ounces – reduced-fat whipped cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup – low-fat cottage cheese
  • 1/4 cup – powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon – vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon – lemon juice
  • 3 cups – assorted fruits (strawberries, blueberries, bananas, kiwi, mandarin orange segments, etc.)
  • powdered sugar (optional)


Preheat oven to 400°F.

Lightly coat 2 large baking sheets with non-stick spray. Unroll pizza crust onto a work surface and cut into 6 squares.

Place three squares on each of the baking sheets and fold the sides up ¼ inch. Brush the surface of each crust with milk and sprinkle with some of the sugar. Bake until lightly golden and puffed, about 10 minutes. Let cool at room temperature completely before assembling the pizzas.

In a food processor, whip the cream cheese, cottage cheese, ¼ cup powdered sugar, lemon juice, and vanilla together until smooth.

Divide cream cheese mixture evenly among the crusts, then spread to coat, leaving a ½-inch margin around the edges of the crust. Arrange the fruit over the cream cheese mixture and dust with additional powdered sugar before serving, if desired.
