Washington D.C. is packed with pizza, from New York styles at Wise Guy's, to Neapolitan at 2 Amys, to the large and loaded pies at We, The Pizza. District party animals have their choice of late-night slices, but what about the early birds? Aren't they supposed to get worm, or in this case a fresh, warm slice?

Many favorites across the DMV only offer evening pies, but there are a few places where diners can safely bet on a breakfast pizza to meet early morning cravings. While some local spots do allow diners to build-their-own pizzas, these eateries have already built the breakfast pie for patrons. So, when eaters are still waking up from the previous night's escapades, they just have to say the word to receive this beloved dish.

All include eggs, of course, but diners can find flavor variety through different combinations of meats, cheeses and favorite breakfast starches. By heading to one of the below, the slice will certainly be right for a morning meal.
