Not sure what to make for weekend breakfasts? This quick and easy breakfast pizza can be customized to your tastes. It's hearty, satisfying and sure to bring a smile! Who can say no to pizza?
When my husband and I were out of town for the skating competition, my parents came to take care of Addie. For whatever reason, Addie will not eat any food that my mom makes (she is a phenomenal cook, so this baffles me). Since Addie refused my mom's food, they resorted to something that I normally don't allow - they took her to fast food restaurants. Addie ate at fast food places 5 days in a row and gained at least 2 pounds. #truestory
While I wasn't thrilled that she ate chicken nuggets and hamburgers for a full week, I knew that she'd be a picky eater because my parents allow her to be. Addie can be picky when I am cooking too, but one thing I can always count on her eating is pizza.
When I told her that I was making pizza for breakfast one day, she was intrigued. Pizza? For breakfast? We didn't add too many crazy toppings so she would actually eat the whole thing. And you know what? She did. She ate her entire slice and then some.
Although this isn't the healthiest of breakfast--far from it, I might add--it at least satisfies picky preschoolers and husbands. You can customize your breakfast pizza to your personal tastes and whatever toppings you enjoy. So the next time someone asks for pizza for breakfast, you can say, "Yes!"
- 1 (8 ounce) package refrigerated crescent rolls
- 1 pound ground breakfast sausage
- Toppings of choice (mushrooms, peppers, onions, tomatoes, etc.)
- 5 large eggs
- 1/4 cup milk of choice
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Ground pepper to taste
- 1 and 1/4 cups grated cheese of choice (I used mozzarella, but you can use cheddar, parmesan or any other cheese you desire)
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
Open the package of crescent rolls and separate them into 8 triangles. Press them together to form a large circle and transfer to a deep dish pizza pan, 9" round cake pan or skillet. You may need to grease the pan first, depending upon the type of pan you use. Press the dough up the sides of the pan like you are forming a deep dish pizza crust.
Brown the sausage and drain the grease. Add to the bottom of the crust and add any other toppings you prefer.
Whisk together the eggs, milk and salt and pepper to taste. Pour this over the sausage and toppings. Sprinkle the cheese on top.
Bake in your preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until the eggs have set.
Allow the pizza to cool slightly before serving.
Yield: One 9" breakfast pizza (about 6 servings)
