Ingredients

1 loaf soft French or Italian bread (about 12 ounces), halved lengthwise

3 tablespoons olive oil

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

8 slices bacon (about 6 ounces)

8 large eggs

2 scallions, thinly sliced

1/4 cup prepared spicy mayonnaise, such as Sriracha or chipotle mayo

6 ounces mild Cheddar, shredded on the large holes of a box grater (about 1 1/2 cups)

Hot sauce, for serving

Directions

  1. Preheat the broiler. Cut each piece of bread in half crosswise, then place cut-side-up on a rimmed baking sheet. Brush with the olive oil and season with a pinch each of salt and pepper. Broil until lightly toasted and browned at the edges, about 2 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat until browned and crispy, turning as needed, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate to drain; discard any bacon fat in the skillet. 
  3. Whisk the eggs, half the scallions, 1/4 teaspoon salt and several grinds of pepper in a large bowl, then add to the warm skillet. Cook, stirring with a heatproof silicone spatula, until the eggs are just set and form large, soft curds, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  4. Spread the spicy mayonnaise evenly on top of the toasted bread, then sprinkle with about half of the Cheddar. Place 2 pieces of bacon on each pizza. Dividing evenly, top with the scrambled eggs and then the remaining cheese. Return to the broiler and cook until all the cheese has melted, about 1 minute. Top each pizza with the remaining scallion and serve with a few dashes of hot sauce.
