This weekend, I served breakfast pizza at a brunch. I had forgotten how much we love breakfast pizza as I had not made it in years.
My mom always makes breakfast pizza on our hog butchering day. I probably don't make it because I don't typically get up early enough in the morning to make a yeast dough before breakfast. But it would be simple to put dough in the fridge the night before. If I had my meat pre-cooked and some leftover baked potatoes, it would be easy to assemble. In other words- if I just would get my act together we could enjoy breakfast pizza more often!
Or maybe I should just make it for supper!
This recipe is very adaptable. Feel free to add mushrooms, peppers, or whatever toppings you prefer. I use my mom's easy pizza crust recipe but you can use frozen bread dough or any other pizza crust.
1 lb sausage, cooked and crumbled, or ham or bacon
1 pizza crust, unbaked
2 cup shredded baked potatoes
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
Spread pizza crust dough in large (11x17) pan. Sprinkle meat over crust, sprinkle with potatoes and top with cheese. In bowl, beat together eggs and seasonings. Pour over crust. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes. Serve with ketchup if desired.
