RECIPE SHARE: Breakfast Pizza


it's about time i share another recipe since i haven't done so in a while. i'm SO glad i've taken time to write some of these down, as my recipe cards seem to disappear overnight sometimes, LOL.

this is one of those meals that is in Ashlyn's top 3 favorite things to eat, and even though it is called Breakfast Pizza we often eat it for dinner. but, it's easy enough that you could have it ready, start to finish in less than 30 minutes (15 of that is bake time), in the morning.

it's super easy, economical, VERY yummy, and reheats well for breakfast the next morning.

Preheat: 400.
Sausage Breakfast Pizza
1 lb. bulk pork sausage, cooked and drained
1 can of buttermilk biscuits (the cheap ones....not flaky)
4 eggs
2 TBSP milk
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 tsp pepper
2 tsp oregano

Press uncooked biscuits into a lightly greased 9 x 13 pan, pinching the seams as you go. Spread sausage evenly over top. In medium bowl whisk together 4 eggs, milk and pepper. Pour egg mixture over top the sausage. Lift pan and tilt to allow egg to spread into all corners. Sprinkle cheese on top. Sprinkle oregano over the whole thing. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Allow to cool 5 minutes before cutting. Serves 6 large portions or 8-10 regular portions.

*sometimes i heat pre-cooked sausage patties and dice them up after they are cooked instead of browning bulk sausage.
*we discovered last night that this is extra yummy with a small drizzle of warm maple syrup on top
*do NOT add extra eggs or you'll have a mess on your hands. it seems like there is not enough egg in it, but i assure you that 4 is the perfect amount.
*sometimes i use 1 whole can of biscuits AND a half can.
*you can substitute diced ham, but may want to eliminate the oregano if you do so.
*make two batches (in 2 separate pans) at once. it reheats well and my kids always eat seconds.
*i almost always serve mine with fruit to help balance the meal.



  1. This was PERFECT timing! I went in the kitchen and two fo the kids were eating sausage we had left from a few days ago. I started telling them that I saw this recipe this morning and they wanted to try it. The only biscuits I had was Grands Flaky so I just tore them in half and used half the layers at a time. Turned out awesome! Thanks for making lunch easy and yummy today :)

  2. oooooh, great suggestion on the flaky biscuits. glad i could make life a little easier *wink*.

  3. This sounds quick and yummy, I will most definitely try this!

  4. This sounds delish..I'm sending Tommy to the store RIGHT NOW! ;)


thank you for taking time to leave me a comment! i will do my best to leave comments answering any questions you may ask :)
