A Sausage Gravy Breakfast Pizza is a delicious and hearty way to start your day. Here’s a simple recipe for you to try:
Ingredients: For the Pizza Dough: 1 package (about 2 1/4 teaspoons) active dry yeast 1 teaspoon sugar 3/4 cup warm water 2 cups all-purpose flour 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 teaspoon salt For the Sausage Gravy: 1/2 pound breakfast sausage 1/4 cup all-purpose flour 2 cups milk Salt and pepper to taste For the Toppings: 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese 4 large eggs Chopped green onions or chives (optional, for garnish) Instructions: For the Pizza Dough: In a small bowl, combine the warm water, sugar, and yeast. Let it sit for about 5 minutes, or until it becomes frothy.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, olive oil, and salt. Add the yeast mixture and mix until a dough forms.
Knead the dough on a floured surface for about 5 minutes until it becomes smooth. Place it in a greased bowl, cover with a cloth, and let it rise in a warm place for about 1 hour or until doubled in size. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Roll out the pizza dough on a floured surface to your desired thickness and transfer it to a pizza stone or baking sheet. For the Sausage Gravy: In a skillet, cook the breakfast sausage over medium heat until browned and cooked through. Break it into crumbles as it cooks. Sprinkle the flour over the sausage and stir to combine.
Cook for 1-2 minutes to remove the raw flour taste. Gradually whisk in the milk, stirring constantly to avoid lumps. Cook the gravy until it thickens, then season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat.
Assembling the Pizza: Spread the sausage gravy over the prepared pizza dough. Sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese over the gravy. Create four wells in the toppings and crack an egg into each well. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the eggs are cooked to your liking.
Garnish with chopped green onions or chives if desired. Slice and serve your Sausage Gravy Breakfast Pizza while it’s still warm. Enjoy your delicious and unique breakfast pizza!
