Easy Breakfast Pizza with Turkey Sausage
This Easy Breakfast Pizza with Homemade Turkey Sausage is the best way to start your morning – loads of carbs, loads of delish!
Have you ever been in the mood for breakfast and dinner at the same time? Like you can't just go for the ordinary scrambled eggs and bacon, you need something more like a breakfast tostada but you're not feeling Mexican food? Well, lemme tell about this Easy Breakfast Pizza. YES.
This Breakfast Pizza – let me tell you. I was totally surprised by how delicious it was. I mean, it does have all of your breakfast staples on there, and we even get a little fancy with some sun dried tomatoes, red chilli flakes, basil and parmesan cheese. You might even say it's your dream pizza.
I would even consider having this pizza for dinner – screw breakfast. Dinner is MUCH more satisfying, and breakfast for dinner is quite trendy these days. You know you want it, so don't feel bad about giving into your cravings. Life's too short, right? 😉
As if all of the things I mentioned above aren't enough, this pizza comes together with very little clean up, and within a relatively short time frame – especially if you make the sausage beforehand. I love the sausage because you don't end up using a full batch, and you can save it to make other things like these dreamy Freezer-friendly Breakfast Sandwiches or this Sausage Arrabiata.
I think the thing that messes me up the most with this recipe though is probably the pizza dough. You know how hard that stuff is to roll out? And to make the perfect circular shape. Forget it!
I mean you could just cheat a little bit and buy a pre-made pizza dough shell but where's the fun in that? You may as well work a little bit for your dinner. Okay, I'll be the first to admit I won't judge you if you do decide to cheat a little. It's okay.
So what are you waiting for? Get your butt in the kitchen and make this Breakfast Pizza. And if you try any of my recipes be sure to let me know in the comments, on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook! I'd love to see what you're cooking up!
Easy Breakfast Pizza with Turkey Sausage
- 1 ball store bought pizza dough or pizza shell
- Pizza or tomato sauce as much as you want!
- Shredded mozzarella cheese go for the balls of mozzarella and load your pizza up!
- 5 eggs
- 8 mini hash brown patties
- 1/2 of the turkey sausage mixture crumbled
- 8 sun dried tomatoes
- 1/4 cup fresh chopped basil
- 1-2 tsp red chili flakes
- 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
- Salt & pepper to taste
- 2 tbsp olive oil for frying
- 1 lb ground turkey
- 2 tsp fennel seeds
- 1 tsp Dijon mustard
- 1 tsp dried parsley
- tsp ½garlic salt
- tsp ½paprika
- tsp ¼cayenne pepper
- tsp ½salt
- tsp ¼pepper
- Preheat oven to 400 F.
- Roll out pizza dough (if using) on a floured surface and stretch to desired shape. Bake in the oven on the pizza stone or baking sheet for 10 min until dough is slightly cooked.
- Meanwhile, prepare other ingredients and mix turkey sausage in a large bowl. You'll only use about half of my turkey sausage mixture, so you can either fry it up all at once and freeze/refrigerate the leftover cooked portion, or you can do what I do and break the mixture in half while raw, and freeze one half for use in another recipe or for another pizza at a later date.
- In a frying pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add turkey sausage in 1-inch sized balls, breaking up further if desired as meat begins to cook. Cook for about 7-8 min until meat is fully cooked.
- Remove pizza from oven and spread tomato sauce overtop, then cheese. Add frozen hash browns (if you want them extra crispy fry them quickly after turkey sausage in the same pan for a couple min per side), then turkey sausage and sun dried tomatoes.
- Crack eggs overtop and carefully place pizza in the oven. Cook for 22-25 min, watching to make sure eggs don't overcook (you can see I did this with a couple of mine, but I like my egg yolks hard anyway!). For a softer yolk, cook closer to the 15 min mark.
- Remove from oven and garnish with chopped basil, red chili flakes and parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
Just promise me that if you do end up making it, you'll invite me over for a slice! 😀
