This easy breakfast serves a whole lot of people with little effort and tastes just like your favorite biscuits and gravy but in breakfast form. I use crescent rolls to keep the crust easy and buttery, ground pork sausage, and the best eggs! An easy breakfast that feeds a crowd!
This Crescent Roll Breakfast pizza is easy and fast to make and tastes amazing! Like our Breakfast Corn dogs, this is an easy breakfast for special occasions, weekend breakfasts, or for busy mornings. Simple ingredients of crescent rolls, eggs, sausage, and cheese for this breakfast pizza recipe!
- Crescent Rolls. Two tube of crescent rolls will provide the flaky, buttery crust that mimics biscuits and bakes up quickly. For a thinner crust you can use only a single roll of crescent rolls but it will be a bit more difficult to roll out. See what you prefer.
- Ground Pork Sausage. Use your favorite breakfast sausage. I recommend using a ground sausage but you can certainly cut up sausage links, if you prefer.
- Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Try subbing out pepper jack or another cheese that melts nicely.
- Eggs. Use large, fresh eggs.
How to Make:
- The crust for this sausage breakfast pizza couldn’t be easier. Simply roll out a tube of crescent rolls and gently press it into a cookie sheet.
- Fry up a batch of ground sausage, put that sausage on the crescent roll crust.
- Use the drippings, some cream, and some flour to create a sausage gravy that will act as the sauce for our breakfast “pizza”.
- Just pour that sausage gravy goodness over the sausage and crescent roll crust. Add some good sprinkles of black pepper for good measure. Yum!
- Scramble up some eggs to put on the pizza. Honestly, I used the same pan as the gravy and sausage to keep it easy.
- Lastly, pile the whole thing high with shredded cheese and bake it baby, bake it!
- I throw sliced green onions on top of the pizza when it comes out of the oven. Sometimes chopped parsley, if I don’t have the onions. Whatever I can find that adds a bit of green freshness.
- Did you know that because of the flour and processing ingredients used to keep shredded cheese fresh in the package, it doesn’t have the same “meltiness” as cheese you shred yourself? Totally true. When possible, shred your own!
- If you find the crust is too thick, try using only 1 tube of crescent rolls. Take into account you will most likely need to reduce the baking time.
- While I prefer using ground sausage, using your favorite link sausage and cutting into smaller pieces works too.
Store this breakfast pizza like you would any other pizza. Lay leftovers flat in a Ziplock bag and put it into the fridge for up to 2 days. Reheat in the microwave.
This is a breakfast the whole family loves! I love breakfast pizza because it is so easy to make and serves a bunch of people. Which, is basically every day around here. And using a crescent roll crust is as tasty as it is handy!
