Pizza for breakfast? Why not?
As you all know, I love me a good hearty breakfast. That’s why I love breakfast versions of dinnertime favorites, like my Breakfast Lasagna Casserole, Breakfast Enchilada Overnight Bake, and Freezer Breakfast Quesadillas. And my latest addition to the bunch is…Breakfast Pizza.
This Breakfast Pizza starts out just like a regular pizza. You can use either homemade or store-bought pizza dough for the crust and top it with a thick, tomatoey pizza sauce and plenty of mozzarella cheese.
Then comes the sausage, and here’s where you can start to mix things up. Because you can choose mild or spicy Italian sausage, like on a regular pizza, or you can go with a your favorite breakfast sausage to give it a breakfast-time vibe. (Use a good plant-based sausage if you want to make it vegetarian.)
But the real finishing touch comes when the pizza is mostly baked. After about ten minutes in the oven, pull it out and crack four eggs right on top. Then pop it back in the oven and give it about six minutes for the eggs to set. And just like that, a regular sausage pizza becomes a Breakfast Pizza. But don’t worry…if you have any leftovers, they’re still good for lunch.
This Breakfast Pizza has all of your favorite breakfasts slapped on top of a pizza crust for the ultimate breakfast of champions.
