I’ve always heard of breakfast pizza, but I was never quite ready to dive in and make it. I mean, an egg….on a pizza?! I love eggs, but it felt wrong to put an egg on a pizza. Like it should be outlawed.
Well tonight was the night folks. I’ve had this on the menu for a couple weeks and I was finally ready to take the plunge into breakfast pizza land!
First, I sauteed up some veggies (because it just ain’t pizza without some veggies). We used mushrooms, broccoli, red onion & red pepper.
I seasoned the vegetables with a garlic pepper seasoning we received as a wedding favor from a wedding this past summer. Loved that idea!
In a separate skillet, cook up some italian sausage. We just had regular on hand, but sweet italian sausage would have been great.
(Ignore my mess…)
Now’s the time to roll out your dough. I used Jenna’s go to recipe, as it is now my go to recipe.
Next up, pesto!
You could easily make your own, but I had this handy in the fridge. Pestoooo.
Time to put everyone on the dough!
Slather that pesto down and then spread out all of the toppings evenly. Unless, your picky about your veggies and only one of you like mushrooms (ahem).
In the oven it went! Now next time, I would probably go ahead and put the eggs on now. I thought that they would cook too quickly so I waited and then had to use the broiler to finish.
Look at those little eggies! I may have a new favorite pizza…
- Whole wheat pizza dough (can be store bought)
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 pound Italian sausage
- 1/2 cup chopped broccoli
- 1/4 red pepper
- 1/4 red onion
- 1/2 cup mushrooms
- 1/2 cup shredded cheese (and/or feta)
Preheat oven to 375. Brown the italian sausage while sauteing the vegetables in another pan. Spread pesto across pizza dough and layer with desired toppings. Top with shredded cheese or feta. Crack 2 eggs over pizza and cook for 15 minutes.
