Recipe of the Week: Breakfast Pizza, by L.H.

This is another 25+ year-old recipe, tried and true. I see many variations of it online, but I swear by this one being the easiest and tastiest of them all. For many years we called it “Christmas Pizza”, as it was tradition for me to pre-make it to a point the day before and then finish it and let it bake Christmas morning while Christmas presents were being enjoyed. Your children will love this.


  • 1 favorite-style pizza crust (I favor a pizza crust box/packet mix as being the perfect middle ground between time-consuming homemade and an expensive premade one. Both Jiffy and Wal-Mart’s Great Value make an affordable and good mix that requires nothing more than hot water and a few minutes.)
  • 1 lb. bulk sausage
  • 1 c. frozen loose-pack shredded hash browns, thawed
  • 1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
  • 5 eggs
  • 1/4 c. milk
  • 1/4 tsp. each salt and pepper
  • 2 tbs. grated Parmesan cheese


  1. In skillet cook and crumble sausage till done; drain grease.
  2. While sausage is cooking prepare pizza crust on a lipped pizza pan (do not use a flat pizza stone).
  3. Sprinkle cooked sausage over crust, sprinkle with hash browns, and top with cheddar. (If pre-doing for next day, stop here, wrap well with plastic wrap, and refrigerate.)
  4. In mixing bowl or measuring pitcher whisk together eggs, milk, and salt and pepper. Carefully pour over pizza.
  5. Top with sprinkled Parmesan.
  6. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes.

Makes 8 slices.
