Breakfast pizza? Not only could this be a way to get your kids to eat breakfast but it's a fun switch for adults too. Not quite as heavy as traditional pizza, this could fall into the breakfast, brunch or as it did for us, dinner category.
The variety of toppings you can add to this are endless. This is my basic recipe. I am sure you can add some of your own favorite toppings to make this your own.
1 (8 oz.) crescent rolls
12 oz. breakfast sausage
1 cup frozen shredded hashbrowns, thawed
1 cup shredded cheese
1/4 cup milk
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
4 eggs, scrambled
2 TBLS. grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Separate crescent dough into triangles. Press triangles together to form a round 12" crust on a pizza pan coated with cooking spray. Crimp outer edges of dough (with your fingers) to create a rim.
Bake dough for 5 minutes and then set aside.
Cook sausage in a large skillet over medium heat until brown, making sure to crumble it. Drain well.
Top dough with a layer of sausage, then hashbrowns, then shredded cheese. Combine milk, salt & pepper and eggs together, whisking well.
Pour egg mixture evenly over the pizza. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
Bake 25 minutes or until crust is lightly browned.
Slice like pizza and watch it disappear!
