The top 5 breakfast pizza in Toronto

Pizza for breakfast seems like a childhood fantasy or some college kid diet consisting of leftovers, but in Toronto that couldn't be further from reality. These morning pies are sophisticated and delicious fusion foods composed of breakfast essentials like bacon and eggs.

Here are my picks for the top breakfast pizza in Toronto.

Mangia Bevi
The Italian eatery on King Street East is home to a dozen variations of breakfast pizza. Wake-up to an egg-topped pie loaded with mozzarella, potatoes, pancetta, rosemary, red onions and parmigiano ($18), or satisfy your sweet tooth with a Nutella pizza ($9) with optional bananas (+$2) or fresh fruit (+$3).

The Good Son
This charming West Queen West restaurant serves breakfast pizza ($17) on its weekend brunch menu. This wood-fired pie features prosciutto with mushrooms, potatoes and a sunny side up egg.

Lil Baci
Satisfy cravings for bacon and eggs with the Festa ($18) on the brunch menu at Lil Baci locations in Leslieville and also at Yonge and Eglinton. This pizza-breakfast mashup is topped with a classic combination of morning foods including bacon (in this case pancetta), sausage, cheese, potatoes and a pair of sunny side up eggs.

Cresta
Work up an appetite at the St. Lawrence farmers' market then head to this Italian restaurant for the uovo pizza ($19) topped with pancetta, mixed mushrooms, onions on a red pepper pumpkin seed sauce finished with asiago cheese and poached eggs. For an even more indulgent start to the day, try the Funghi Pizza ($24) topped with fontina, arugula, truffle oil and poached eggs.

Gusto 101
This restaurant at King and Portland is blessed with an all-weather roof top patio that serves as the perfect setting to soak in some sun over brunch. The Pizza alla Uova ($15) is a tomato-sauced pie topped with mozzarella, speck and a baked egg.
