If you’re looking to spice up your usual breakfast of boring old oatmeal or plain ol’ bacon and eggs, the trust breakfast pizza is there to lend you a helping hand. A breakfast pizza is merely a pizza that contains breakfast items instead of standard pizza toppings. It’s simple to make, and a surefire way to spice up a Monday morning!
Most breakfast pizza recipes utilize a tin of crescent rolls that are rolled out and formed into a crust, as opposed to separated and rolled. This is suitable for a breakfast pizza due to its texture, as well as being a regular breakfast, or rather, brunch, item. If you have the ingredients and the guts, you can construct a giant pancake to use as the crust, which is quite possibly the coolest idea ever. Of course, when in doubt, you can always go with a standard pizza crust, though the level of desired sweetness might not be to your liking.
Now it’s time to select the toppings. The following breakfast pizza recipe is modified from a recipe found here. You will need:
Colby Jack cheese
Three large eggs
To start, brown the sausage, crumbling it as it cooks. Add some salt and pepper to taste. Once it’s done, soak up the grease with a paper towel and set aside. You can use as much or as little sausage as you’d like, though you’ll want to factor how many other toppings you intend to use so as to prevent flavor overload.
Take some shredded hashbrowns that have thawed (if you’re really daring, you can make your own with a coupla potatoes and a cheese grater) and sprinkle them over the top of the dough. On top of the hash browns, sprinkle as much Colby Jack cheese as you’d like.
Take the sausage crumbles and sprinkle on top of the cheese. Now, take the eggs (3-5 should do), scramble them up nice and good with some added salt and pepper, and evenly disperse over the pizza. It’s not necessary, but adding about a quarter cup of milk to the eggs will help prevent the eggs from getting too tough. Conversely, you can crack the eggs right over the crust to make them over easy/medium/hard, depending on your preference.
Once all the ingredients have been added, place in an oven pre-heated to 375 degrees for about 25-30 minutes or until the eggs have set to your liking, then enjoy!
