Left Over Pizza Breakfast Casserole

I saw this  recipe in “allrecipes Magazine”.  Yes, they not only have their website but they have a nice magazine.  Kent and I enjoy breakfast pizza but have never tried left over pizza in a casserole.  Most every Friday we have pizza.  This Friday we did a cheese pizza and a 3 meat pizza.  The meat pizza this week had sausage, bacon and Canadian bacon.  Ready for a nice “Simple and Delicious” casserole? Here it is:

Left Over Pizza Breakfast Casserole

3 slices leftover sausage pizza, cut into 3/4 inch squares (or 3 cups) Whatever pizza you have left over is perfect!
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
4 eggs, beaten
1 cup milk
1/3 cup chopped onion
3 Tablespoons butter, melted
1 clove garlic, minced (optional) I say add it in!
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper (I use kosher salt.  If you use table salt use 1/4 teaspoon. OR; don’t add at all. This was not part of recipe.)
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper or to taste (I lightly sprinkled on top)
Pepperoni slices or any other meat if you desire.  I did not add any more, we had plenty this week! However, Canadian Bacon or some fried bacon would be yummy.

Directions

  1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Coat a 2 quart baking dish with cooking spray.  (I used my 8 inch square pyrex dish.)
  2. Arrange pizza squares in prepared baking dish and top with mozzarella.
  3. Whisk together eggs, milk, onion, melted butter, garlic and oregano in a large bowl; pour over pizza. Sprinkle with Parmesan and crushed red pepper then cover with foil.
  4. Bake 30 minutes. Remove foil and top with pepperoni or other meat if using.
  5. Continue baking, uncovered, until eggs are set and Parmesan is melted, about 20 minutes.

With everyone worrying about calories in my world I am going to start posting calories if noted in recipe.  Per 1 cup serving: 446 calories.  Have a piece or 1/2 a piece, it is worth it!
