Some questions I found on Google that we need to have a heart to heart about:
- Is breakfast pizza a thing?
- Is pizza a breakfast item?
- Can you eat pizza as breakfast?
- Is cold pizza for breakfast a thing?
Y’all, I’m not joking… these were legit questions that came up OFTEN. I mean.
WHAT THE HECKITY HECK? 🙀
Who are these people and where are their parents? For shame.
- Of COURSE breakfast pizza is a thing.
- YES pizza is a breakfast item. Not just breakfast pizza but regular pizza. Pizza is for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, dessert, and everything in between.
- YES you can eat pizza as breakfast. (see above). In fact, you SHOULD eat pizza as breakfast.
- Oh darling, if you haven’t had cold pizza for breakfast I mean…no words. NO words.
Moving on. Just let’s move on…
Simple ingredients of crescent rolls, eggs, sausage, and cheese for this breakfast pizza recipe!
- Crescent Rolls. I use crescent rolls instead of a pizza crust (although you certainly could!) to keep the crust easy and buttery and so easy to roll out on a baking sheet.
- Ground pork sausage. Sausage gravy isn’t really sausage gravy without ground sausage…right? Try using bacon instead, for a fun twist.
- The best eggs. This pizza is topped with LOTS of scrambled eggs full of protein…great for a hearty breakfast.
- Cheese. I prefer cheddar cheese but feel free to try mozzarella cheese or even skip the cheese if you are watching your saturated fat.
- Optional: pump up the nutrition by adding bell pepper, spinach, mushrooms, or other veggies you like.
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.
Tips for success:
- 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.
How to Store/Make ahead:
- Making ahead: I find that making this pizza ahead leads to a soggy bottom and isn’t tasty, at all. Instead, I will have the eggs beaten and ready to go, the sausage gravy already prepared (sometimes I need to thin it out with a bit of milk if it thickens as it cools), and the veg and cheese cut and shredded. Then I simply roll out the crust and put the pizza together. It’s ready within 20 minutes!
- Storing: Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days. However, leftovers aren’t tasty when reheated in the microwave because that yummy crust just stays soggy. Instead, reheat leftovers in the oven or an air-fryer to maintain the crispy crust. Better yet…eat it all while fresh :).
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 Christmas morning, weekend breakfasts, or for busy mornings. Serve it up with orange juice and hash browns for the ultimate brunch.
