This easy breakfast pizza recipe is perfect for both a lazy weekend at home, or a make ahead, grab 'n' go breakfast from the freezer. Plus, if you're from Iowa, it may remind you of our famous Casey's breakfast pizza!
114-inchpizza crust or 6 mini crustsI used mini naan breads
3/4cupcheese sauce(you may have some left over--great over cooked veggies!)
6slicescooked bacon, crumbed OR 1/3 lb cooked breakfast sausage (or a combo of both)
4eggscooked and scrambledseasoned with salt & pepper
1cupcheesecheddar or mozzarella or a combo of both
For the Cheese Sauce:
Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour and salt until a paste forms. Slowly add milk; cook and stir until fully incorporated with no lumps, about 2 minutes.
Add cheese, stir until smooth, and cook until melted, 1 to 2 minutes.
For the Pizza:
Prepare crust as directed on package. Any pizza crust will work for this-- a ready-to-use pizza dough in a bag or can, a pre-cooked pizza crust, or naan bread. I always keep a package of mini naan bread from Costco in my freezer, so that is often my crust of choice.
Spread ½ to ¾ cup of the cheese sauce across the pizza dough. This acts as the pizza sauce.
Sprinkle the cooked and crumbled bacon and/or sausage on top of the cheese sauce.
Evenly spread the cooked and seasoned scrambled eggs across the pizza(s).
Top with 1 cup of mozzarella or cheddar cheese, or a combo of both.
Bake until the cheese is melted and and the crust is golden-brown. Times will vary depending on type of crust you use.
Let the pizza cool for 5 minutes; this gives the cheese sauce time to set and prevent it from oozing out.
You can prepare the cheese sauce and toppings the night before, making this pizza quick and easy to put together and bake the next morning.
Cooked pizza slices or mini pizzas can be wrapped tightly in plastic wrap and then placed in a freezer bag. Store in the freezer for up to two months for a grab 'n' go breakfast that can be warmed in the microwave for a few seconds.
