Breakfast Pizza for Anytime of the Day

breakfast pizzaSure, leftover pizza for breakfast can be great once in awhile, but actual breakfast pizza is even better. It works well for breakfast or brunch, but it's one of my family's favorite dinners as well.

This recipe from Taste of Home is pretty heavy, but easy to lighten up by using turkey sausage or turkey bacon and low-fat cheese. I also like to throw in some vegetables like chopped tomatoes, mushrooms, and peppers so it's pretty much a complete meal along with some fruit salad. Add some chopped flat leaf parsley on top if you want to make it really pretty.


Breakfast Pizza

  • 1 pound sausage (turkey sausage or turkey bacon works well too)
  • 1 1/4 cups frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese (low-fat is fine)
  • Chopped vegetables of your choice
  • 5 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk (skim works)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • Grated Parmesan cheese

In a skillet, brown sausage; drain.

Spoon into an ungreased 10-in. pie pan.

Top with potatoes, cheddar cheese, and vegetables.

In a bowl, beat eggs, milk, salt, and pepper; pour over cheese.

Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Bake, uncovered, at 375°F for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown.
