Breakfast Sausage Pizza
The sausage in this breakfast pizza can be replaced with ground pork, diced ham, or chorizo. Serve with fresh seasonal fruit to complete this family-pleasing breakfast.
6 ounces pork sausage, bulk
4 slices bacon, thick cut, cut in half
8 large eggs, beaten
1 (10-inch) pizza crust
1 cup colby Jack cheese, shredded
1/2 cup onion, thinly sliced
1/4 cup Italian (flat-leaf) parsley, snipped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- In a large skillet cook sausage, bacon, and onions over medium-high heat until browned and cooked through (about 10 to 15 minutes). Remove with slotted spoon and set aside. Remove all but 1 teaspoon of drippings from pan. Add eggs, parsley, and seasonings, stirring to scramble. Stir while cooking for 2 to 3 minutes or until eggs are just set.
- Meanwhile, place pizza crust on a pizza pan or baking sheet and top with 1/2 cup of the cheese. Place in a preheated 400°F (205°C) oven for 3 to 5 minutes until cheese is melted. Remove crust and top with eggs, sausage, and onions. Top with bacon and remaining cheese. Return to oven until cheese is melted and bacon is crisp.
- Garnish with additional parsley, if desired. Slice to serve.
Makes 8 servings.
