Breakfast Pizza

Okay so, if you have a husband like mine who loves watching Barstool Sports, you may also have a pizza obsession on your hands... After trying almost every local pizza shop here in town, Jordan and I moved on to making our own at home. My parents gave Jordan a pizza oven (linked here!) for his birthday, and since then we've had a lot of fun perfecting our own recipes. On New Year's Eve Day, Jordan made a breakfast pizza that was SO epic we had to share it with you guys. It's a great way to use up leftovers, and you can easily swap out toppings for other breakfast-y items in your fridge. 

A few other tips for making this a little more "no-fuss" - I had 1/2 lb bags of browned sausage and ground beef already in the freezer, and leftover gravy from the other night in the fridge. We also got our pizza dough the night before from local pizza shop, and they roll it out for you which saves us a ton of time. (If you're local to Wichita, the shop is Il Vicino.) Trader Joe's and Whole Foods also have amazing pre-made pizza dough. If you want to make your own, Jiffy makes a great (and super cheap) "just add water" mix for like 99 cents in grocery stores. Finally, I'm a microwave bacon kind of gal. It's just easier to buy it in those microwave packets. Yes it's terrible for you... but let's be real - bacon in general is terrible for you ;). Other toppings I would try are: green peppers, diced tomatoes, ham, and cheddar cheese. You could make a Denver omelette style of breakfast pizza, which sounds amazing as I type it out... the possibilities are endless!

Ingredients

Pizza dough, rolled out to 10" on parchment paper 

Gravy (This recipe halved)

2-3 eggs, scrambled

Hot breakfast sausage

Ground beef

Bacon crumbles

Shredded Italian cheese blend

Italian seasoning

Frank's Hot Sauce (for drizzle)

Instructions

Preheat your pizza oven or pizza stone for 20 min. Don't have either of those? Trust me, they make a difference. Pizza oven linked here, and pizza stone linked here.

Assemble your pizza on the parchment paper with gravy as the sauce, scrambled eggs, meat, and top with cheese. Sprinkle Italian seasoning over the top before baking. 

We keep the parchment paper under the dough for the first 4 min while it bakes on medium heat in our pizza oven, and then remove it for the last 2 min to let the crust get crisper. 

Once it's done baking, remove from oven and let it cool for a minute before cutting into slices. Drizzle hot sauce on top for added flavor (and trust me, it's definitely the necessary cherry on top of an already delicious pizza!)
