After spotlighting the best new pizzas to try around LA right now, we got to thinking: we love egg on pizza. Whether for breakfast, brunch or dinner, the added richness of a runny yolk is hard to beat when mixed in with cheese, sometimes sauce, maybe arugula or something green. You can find a slew of breakfast pizzas around town, some even without egg (think: cinnamon toast with fruit). Check out the slide show below for 10 delicious options, and let us know your favorite breakfast, brunch and/or egg pizzas in the comments.

  • Artisan House

    The slick Downtown spot with the huge windows and fine little street-side patio feels every bit of the urban renaissance that’s happening in the neighborhood. The egg and bacon pizza with fontina, ricotta and an farm-fresh egg is great for brunch, especially with bottomless mimosas.

    600 S. Main St.; 213-622-6333

  • Little Dom’s

    Served daily on the breakfast and brunch menus at the Los Feliz favorite, the pizza with speck, a sunny-side up egg and mozzarella is always a dream. The one with smoked salmon pizza with crecenza cheese, capers and red onion on whole wheat crust is a close second. 

    2128 Hillhurst Ave.; 323-661-0055

  • Gjelina

    There’s a reason why it’s always busy at the Venice hot spot, and why people are willing to put up with the gruff service, the long waits and the overall attitude: the food’s pretty stellar. At brunch, try the gruyere and caramelized onion pizza with fromage blanc and arugula with the additional sunny-side up egg. In this case, the egg makes the pie.

    1429 Abbot Kinney Blvd.; 310-450-1429

  • The Fat Dog

    The bustling gastropub on Fairfax does its version of breakfast pizza with puffed pastry crust topped with prosciutto, fontina cheese, eggs and baby arugula. It’s a meal unto itself.

    801 N. Fairfax Ave.; 323-951-0030

  • Maximiliano

    Andre Guerrero’s Highland Park Italian spot slings great pies along with super traditional red-sauce pastas, but for brunch, the pizza with pomodoro, fingerling potatoes, bacon confit, fennel sausage, mozzarella and eggs is a winner.

    5930 York Blvd.; 323-739-6125

  • Milo + Olive

    As long as you can get a seat in the crammed Santa Monica restaurant, the pizzas are fantastic, especially the carb-on-carb roasted potato pizza with rosemary cream, parmesan and a fried egg.

    2723 Wilshire Blvd.; 310-453-6776

  • Mohawk Bend

    The Echo Park beerhall and cocktail spot has an excellent Breakfast All Day Pizza with Canadian bacon, egg, parmesan, mozzarella and spinach. So named because you can get it all day, any day.

    2141 W. Sunset Blvd.; 213-483-2337

  • The Churchill

    Chef Michael Bryant’s wood-fired bacon and eggs pizza with pancetta, arugula, parmesan and rosemary is a good the perfect combo for brunch. It’s a bit sceney,  but the bottomless mimosas and Bloody Marys are worth it.

    8384 W. 3rd St.; 323-655-8384

  • The Oaks Gourmet

    Hollywood’s grab-and-go market and dine-in cafe serves a cracked egg and crispy potato pizza with caramelized onion sauce, smoked mozzarella and a bit of white truffle oil.

    1915 N. Bronson Ave.; 323-871-8894

  • Simmzy’s

    For savory brunchers, the Long Beach gastropub has an eggs Benedict pizza with bacon, spinach, mozzarella, poached eggs and hollandaise sauce. But for diners with a sweet tooth, there’s the cinnamon toast pizza, a crispy flatbread topped with butter, sugar and spice and everything nice, i.e. mixed berries and a donut glaze.
