You know when you mix crescent rolls, sausage and eggs that magical things are going to happen. There are lots of breakfast pizza recipes out there, but I never found any that really floated my boat, so I sorta made this one myself. Yes, I am aware that there are probably tons of people who do it this way…but it makes me feel creative, so let’s go with it. Thanks for your cooperation.
To make this breakfast pizza, we need eggs, sausage, peppers, onions, mozzarella, crescent rolls, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. I love using crescent rolls. I love the flavor and the flakey goodness. My sister in law makes this DELICIOUS sausage thing with crescent rolls, sausage, and cream cheese. Please take the time to wipe your slobber before we continue.
The Basic Process
Grab a big skillet and plop in your sausage, milk, peppers and onion. Let it cook until the veggies are tender and the sausage is good and brown. I like my sausage crispy….I don’t want to wonder if it’s done. No pink for me, thanks. If your sausage oinks, it’s not done.
You might want to drain your sausage. I took mine out of the skillet using a slotted spoon and put it in a bowl off to the side. If you don’t drain it, it’s going to be really greasy. Then set the skillet back over the heat so it gets hot.
Beat your eggs in a large bowl. Add the milk, salt, and pepper. You can use a whisk, but I just used a fork.
Pour the egg mixture into the warm skillet. Scramble them until they’re nice and done. No runny eggs folks…unless you want me to runny away. Runny only belongs with noses.
Let’s Make it a Pizza
Now, we need a regular-sized pizza pan. I greased my pan. I always grease my pan, unless I’m making cookies. Sticking food gives me nightmares. Place the pointed end near the center of the pan. Now, pat it out until the crust covers the whole pan. You’ll think it’s not going to work, but it will. Have faith! Stacy said it, you believe it – that’s faith. Ha, ha! Throw it into a 375 degree oven for 5 minutes. It’s going to let the crust cook a bit so that it won’t be soggy later.
Time to assemble the pizza! First, put the sausage on. Say “Mama Mia!” Thank you.
You can leave this layer off if you like, but I don’t think pizza is pizza unless it has Parmesan cheese on it.
The last layer is mozzarella cheese. The amount you use is based on your love of cheese. Sprinkle it on there nice and pretty. Pop some into your mouth. Sprinkle some in the floor for your dog, but not too much or it’ll yak.
Finish it Up
Pop it into the 375 degree oven for 10 minutes or until the cheese is melty like this. Oh yeah baby. This is just a work of sausage loveliness. Eat immediately. This reheats very well in the microwave IF you have any left.
