Have Your Pizza for Breakfast at These Five Eateries

Some mornings, you just want pizza for breakfast. And we're not talking about leftover Domino's from your post-bar 3:00 a.m. bad decision. We're talking fresh-out-of-the-oven, hot and bubbling breakfast pizza.

And because Houston is such a wonderful, wonderful place, you can get your fix of bright-and-early egg-topped pizza all over town. Here are five of our favorites:

1. The Southern

Where to find it: Royal Oak Bar & Grille Eggstraordinary ingredients: Hot Sauce, Chorizo, & Scallions

You can feast on this spicy flatbread during Royal Oak's weekend brunch, available from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. The $7 mimosa pitchers and house DJ make for a fun time, but it's the breakfast pizza that keeps us coming back for more. Baked on ultra-thin lavash, the square pie is piled with fluffy scrambled eggs, crumbles of hot chorizo, mozzarella, fresh green onions and a healthy dose of hot sauce -- all of which the beautifully-charred crust holds up to with ease. For those of you who would like to keep your jeans buttoned, a vegetarian pie -- topped with eggs, tomatoes, zucchini, roasted mushrooms, red onion, and basil -- is just as satisfying.
