We mixed it up for pizza night last week and had this breakfast pizza.  I would actually describe this as a cross between a pizza and a quiche.  I precooked my sausage and this came together in no time.  The hardest part of this recipe was forming the crust – if you can believe that.  The crescents didn’t line up so I had to do a little work to get them into a pretty circle.  Make sure that you make a rim around the edge of the crust.  If you don’t the egg will run off the crust and make a huge mess in the oven.  This was a great weeknight meal, but it would also be good for brunch or even an early morning tailgate.  We both loved this!!  It tasted great and nobody would ever know this was low-fat!

Yield: serves 4

Breakfast Pizza

prep time: 5 MINScook time: 25 MINStotal time: 30 mins

ingredients:

  • 1 (8-ounce) can reduced-fat crescent rolls
  • 12-oz reduced-fat sausage (Jimmy Dean)
  • 1 cup frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup milk (I used 1%)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1 (8-ounce) carton Egg Beaters
  • 2 Tbsp grated fresh Parmesan cheese
  • Cooking spray

instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Separate dough into triangles. Press triangles together to form a single round crust on a 12-inch pizza pan coated with cooking spray. Crimp edges of dough with fingers to form a rim. *This is important – if you don’t make a rim the eggs will run off the dough and make a huge mess!*
  3. Cook sausage in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until browned, stirring to crumble. Drain.
  4. Top prepared dough with sausage, potatoes, and cheese. Whisk together milk, salt, pepper, and Egg Beaters. Carefully pour milk mixture over sausage mixture.  Sprinkle with Parmesan. 
  5. Bake for 25 minutes or until crust is browned.

  1. Breakfast Pizza is a great dish. Have you ever done Breakfast Burritos? They're good, too. So happy to see that you used my FAVORITE bulk sausage in the whole big world: Jimmy Dean. Go, Jimmy!

  2. We make this when we have company, but I also spoon a little salsa over the hashbrowns and sausage before I add the eggs and top with a Mexican Blend cheese. Very awesome!! Since you like mexican flavors, you should give that a try!!
