Sheet Pan Breakfast Pizza

Sheet Pan Breakfast Pizza is loved by all in my house.
It rivals any pizza joint's version!

If there is any food that us Midwesterners love more than beef or pork, it might be breakfast pizza. I'm fully aware that people on the west and east coasts do not grow up eating breakfast pizza. 

It's a middle of the country thing!

When I chat about it on Instagram {usually showing a slice of Casey's breakfast pizza in my van while on the road} I often gets messages that go something like, "are those eggs on pizza"?

Yep, they sure are!

Let me just say I'm thankful I've grown up in a land where breakfast pizza exists. It's heavenly and filling and makes any start to your day much more doable.

Last weekend we attended a family reunion on the Mississippi River {a whole gang of us shacking up in various cabins} where we spent time boating, swimming, eat and laughing.

One of the breakfast items my husband's aunt made was breakfast pizza! To feed our big crowd she baked it in a large sheet pan {genius} and it was delicious. I immediately knew when getting home I was going to create a version for our house.

And that I did!

Just two days later I got in the kitchen and made this pizza. I kept a few things the same as hers {taking help from a refrigerated Pillsbury pizza dough crust and the canned cheese sauce}, but I did change up a couple things.

A few years back I had some delicious breakfast pizza at local joint and they also added gravy to the toppings. You know like the gravy you'd eat with biscuits and gravy?

Say what?

Yes, I had to add that too.

The combination of scrambled eggs, a smooth cheese sauce, sausage, peppered gravy and more cheese on a crispy crust is just AMAZING.

For a moment I thought of making all of this from scratch {because being a food blogger that is sometimes expected of me}, but after thinking a bit I wanted this recipe to be simple. One that a Mom could print off and say "this is easy, I'm making it".

So that is what I did - I used store bought ingredients. I have no shame in saying this. Sometimes we need help where we can take it!

The beauty of doing this pizza sheet pan style is that it feeds a crowd. It stretches out the ingredients a bit. On the day I made this pizza we ate it for lunch AND dinner. It fed us for two meals.

Kinda funny we didn't even touch it for breakfast.

I reheated slices for dinner in the air fryer - which I 100% recommend. Here is the link to my air fryer. Doing it this way gets the crust crispy again and honestly it tastes like it just came back out of the oven. You'd never even know the pieces were leftovers.

This homemade breakfast pizza is better than your local pizza joint's recipe! Switch up your pizza routine and do it breakfast style.

Ingredients

  • 1 tube Pillsbury thin crust refrigerated pizza dough
  • 1/2 lb ground sausage
  • 6 eggs
  • 4.5 oz Fritos Mild Cheddar Cheese Dip (1/2 can)
  • 2.75 oz pkg Gravy mix
  • 1 1/2 cups Colby cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup Mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • salt
  • pepper
  • garlic salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Spray a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside.
  3. In a skillet brown and cook the ground sausage. Drain off the grease and set aside.
  4. In that same skillet scramble the eggs and cook until firm (adding salt & pepper if you desire), also removing from the heat and setting aside.
  5. In a saucepan make the gravy according to the package directions (add pepper and garlic salt if desired). Once made remove from the heat and set aside.
  6. Open the tube of pizza dough and lay it flat onto the sheet pan. Using your fingers gently press out the dough to the side of the pan until the dough reaches the edges.
  7. Using a spoon spread the cheese sauce over the crust. Then layer on the sausage and scrambled eggs. Taking a spoon dot the pizza with the prepared gravy. Finally sprinkle on the Colby and Mozzarella cheeses.
  8. Bake for 20 minutes or until slightly golden and the crust is firm.
  9. Serve warm.

Notes:

This breakfast pizza heats up great as leftovers in the air fryer. Cook at 375 degrees for 3-4 minutes.
