Instructions

How to make homemade sausage gravy:

  • In a pan, saute and brown the sausage until no longer pink. Takes around 5-6 minutes.
    16 ounces breakfast sausage
  • Sprinkle 2 tablespoons flour over the top of the sausage and stir.
    2 tablespoons flour
  • To the pan, add 2 cups of milk. Add the seasonings and stir everything together.
    2 cups whole milk, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, 1/4 teaspoon Spanish paprika, 1/4 teaspoon ground mustard, 1/2 teaspoon onion powder, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Let the gravy simmer until it reduces by a third, for about 5 minutes.

How to make breakfast pizza with over-easy eggs on top:

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • On a large sheet pan, add parchment paper. Unroll the pizza crust and roll it out on top of the parchment paper so it is the size of the baking sheet.
    13.8 ounces pre-made pizza crust
  • Bake in the oven for 6 minutes.
  • Add the sausage gravy to the top of the crust. Spread around to every edge.
  • Spread the cheese over the top evenly.
    2 cups shredded cheddar jack cheese
  • Create 6 wells on the top of the pizza, then gently crack an egg into each well.
    6 large eggs
  • Sprinkle with chopped green onions.
    2 stalks green onions
  • Place the pizza into the oven and bake for 15 minutes.
  • Slice into 6 large pieces so that each piece has an egg in it. Enjoy!

Notes

Tips for making Breakfast Pizza:
  • You want it to be thick and creamy, not saucy which will make the whole pizza soggy.
  • Do not drain the grease, this will be used to make the gravy.
 
Tips for cooking eggs in the oven on top of pizza:
  • Adjust the time for pre-baking the crust by 1 minute for how you prefer your eggs on top. For mine, I pre-baked the crust for 6 minutes, then baked with the eggs on top for 15 minutes and the eggs came out over-easy.
