Give your pizza leftovers a magical upgrade with this French Toast Pizza recipe. It’s the perfect way to bring fluffy, cakey, delicious life back into last night’s ‘za!
Gone are the days of too tough or too soft leftover pizza, where the cheese is no longer “cheesy” and the bread tastes stale and bland. Because, why subject yourself to that nonsense when you can simply transform the leftovers into French toast pizza instead?
Get ready, because this is about to become your new favorite way to eat leftover pizza. It revives the crust, turning it into savory French toast that’s super moist, fluffy, and cakey.
You may just find that you like French toast pizza even more than the fresh pizza you had the night before!
French toast pizza ingredients
This french toasted pizza recipe requires only four things: eggs, milk, salt & pepper, and pizza. Okay, I guess that technically counts as five. Either way, this is an incredibly simple way to transform your pizza into something that’s a bit more acceptable to munch on for breakfast!
- Egg: First, you’ll need 1 large egg for every 2 slices of pizza.
- Milk: The egg will be combined with 1 tablespoon of milk (whether it be scrambled eggs, omelettes, or French toast, we always use the ratio of 1 tablespoon milk per 1 egg – this is because 1 egg can absorb that amount of liquid while cooking!).
- Salt & Pepper: Include a pinch each of salt and pepper for a little bit of flavor.
- Pizza: The good news is that this can be done with any pizza flavor. Leftover green pepper and onion slices? Perfect. Leftover cheese or (vegan) pepperoni slices? Throw ’em in. You’ll need 2 slices for this recipe.
How to make leftover French toast pizza
Have you ever made French toast? Well, this French toast pizza recipe uses the same exact steps. Just make the egg mixture, soak the bread (or pizza, in our case), and then sauté! It’s an easy process that will take less than 15 minutes.
Step 1: Prep the egg mixture
In a shallow dish that’s wide enough to fit a slice of pizza, whisk together the egg, milk, salt, and pepper until everything is evenly combined.
Step 2: Dip the leftovers
Next, dip each slice of pizza in the egg mixture, holding it in to allow the crust to soak up the egg. Be sure to coat both sides.
Step 3: Sauté the pizza
Grease a large sauté pan and set it over medium heat. Add each dipped pizza slice, cooking about 3 minutes per side, or until the outside is golden brown. Serve hot off the stove.
Extra French Toast Pizza Flavor
While I definitely recommend French toast pizza as-is and with whatever toppings were already on it, that certainly does not mean that you can’t add extra flavor.
Add more of your pizza’s toppings, whether that’s extra green peppers, onions, tomatoes, or something else!
If you’ve never tried the magic that is cold cheese on pizza, try it! After making your French toast, sprinkle on some fresh, straight-from-the-fridge shredded mozzarella for some seriously yummy tastes.
Add your favorite plant-based bacon crumbles for an extra breakfast-y taste. Then, take it the extra mile with a maple syrup drizzle! YUM.
