Breakfast Pizza

The holidays are arriving.  Breakfast pizza is great for a crowd or a hungry few.  You can prepare the dough, meats and shred your cheese the night before.  Wake up and throw it together the next day.  For this pizza I use my cast iron skillet.  You can do any combination you want.  We generally do sausage and Canadian bacon for the meat combo. Bacon is also a nice touch.  We had it on Friday and today to be sure we have it down right! 😉

Breakfast Pizza

4 pieces of bacon, cut in 1/2 inch pieces
4 pieces of Canadian bacon, cut in quarters.  I did not fry this bacon.
6 ounces ground breakfast sausage
1 small onion or 1-2 green onion, chopped
1 small green or red bell pepper, sliced thin
4 eggs
1-2 Tablespoons milk
1 Tablespoon butter, softened to brush over pizza dough
Mozzarella, Cheddar or Monterey Jack Cheese (1-2 cups depending on size of dough)

1.  Fry bacon until crisp, remove from fry pan with slotted spoon and place on paper towel.
2.  Fry sausage until done, also remove from fry pan and place on paper towel.
3.  Whisk eggs with 2 Tablespoons milk
4.  Brush dough with butter
5.  Top pizza dough with sausage, onion, pepper, bacon, Canadian bacon, pour egg mixture over the meat and add cheese of your choice or a combination of all.

Bake at 475 for 20-25 minutes.  (You may want to prebake the pizza crust (5-10 minutes) prior to adding the toppings.) Simple and delicious!
