What is Breakfast Pizza?
A small-town midwestern tradition, breakfast pizza started at Casey’s General Store in Iowa back in the 60s. Sometimes called gas station pizza, the original recipe called for cheese sauce, scrambled eggs and bacon.
Since then, many combinations have popped up including sausage gravy breakfast pizza, a twist on sausage and biscuits where gravy mix is used to make the sauce.
How to Make Sausage Breakfast Pizza
To make it, start with a store-bought pizza crust from the supermarket, with a 12-inch parcooked crust is ideal. Place it into a circular pizza pan.
Next, add the sauce, minced green onions, cooked sausage and cheese on top. The final step before baking is making divots and cracking in four eggs with some salt and pepper.
If you prefer, you can also scramble the eggs first and pour them on top.
And then you bake for 12-15 minutes in a 450°F oven. The cheese should be golden and bubbly and the eggs solid by then.
Let it cool for a minute or two to avoid burns. Then garnish with fresh avocado if you wish and serve warm.
