Pizza for Breakfast??? - Breakfast Pizza

I think that should be the name of this recipe.  The Pizza for Breakfast???  Breakfast Pizza.  Back when I was working in the corporate world, I'd eat almost anything for breakfast.  Mostly Lean Cuisine entrees.  Especially Lean Cuisine pizzas.  People ALWAYS teased me about eating dinner for breakfast.  The thing is, I don't like to eat the same oatmeal, cereal, poptart or bagel every day.  How boring is that?  Why can't your breakfast be good?  Who says breakfast has to consist of breakfast foods, and if should, why does it have to be cold, plain and boring??

I've wanted to try making one of these for years and for whatever reason, I just never did...  until today.  Introducing the Pizza for Breakfast???  Breakfast Pizza.  

Here's what I did for this one.  Oh, and if this doesn't tell you that we fell off of the Whole Food's eating wagon then I don't know what will.

*  If you buy one package of all these things, you'll have enough for two pizzas.
  • One 12" pre-made pizza crust.  I used Mama Mary's
  • One package of country gravy mix, prepared as directed.  I used Pioneer Brand.
  • 4 eggs, scrambled hard/dry
  • 4 slices of turkey bacon,  cooked and torn into pieces
  • 4 links of turkey sausage, cooked and torn into pieces
  • 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese (sharp)

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Spread gravy over crust.  I don't have an exact measurement for this, but just think of it as you do pizza sauce.  If you like a lot of pizza sauce, use a lot of gravy.  If you don't like a lot of sauce, just use a little.    Just remember that pizza sauce is more bold than this stuff and you want to be able to taste it (the gravy).  You also don't want to drown the pizza in gravy.  You want to still be able to eat this by hand.
  3. Spread the eggs over the top of the pizza.
  4. Spread the bacon pieces over the top of the pizza.
  5. Spread the sausage bits over the top of the pizza.
  6. Spread cheese over the whole thing.
  7. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes or until the cheese has melted.

Obviously the possibilities for these are endless.  Basically, any kind of omelet you could make, could be a pizza.  Now can't you just imagine of of these with some rosemary potatoes, sauteed mushrooms and onions?  Maybe a little goat cheese here and there?  Mmmm.  The best thing about being able to make two is that you can make one for the kids and the other one for mom and dad.
