Pizza for breakfast? Why not! It’s just as fun and delicious as your typical afternoon or evening pizza, with a world of adventurous topping possibilities. There’s no limit to creativity when adding toppings and trying sauces. At the end of this post, I share recipe alterations that can dress it up even more.
My recipe for Spinach and Sausage Breakfast Pizza is lower in calories and an absolute breakfast or brunch crowd pleaser!
- 1 pizza crust, homemade or fresh/frozen, such as Trader Joe’s prepackaged pizza crust
- 3 large eggs
- 2 Tbsp. nonfat milk
- ½ medium green bell pepper, chopped
- ½ medium onion, chopped
- ½ medium tomato, chopped
- 1 Tbsp. olive oil
- 8 oz. ground lean turkey sausage, browned
- 1 cup spinach
- ½ cup reduced-fat sharp Cheddar cheese
- Sprinkle of shredded mozzarella cheese (optional)
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
- In a medium bowl, combine eggs and milk, whisking until smooth.
- Chop green pepper, onion, and tomato. Fold gently into the egg mixture. Set aside.
- Prepare the pizza crust by brushing it with olive oil. Place crust on pizza pan or baking sheet.
- Place the browned sausage equally over the pizza crust. Carefully pour the egg mixture on top, spreading the vegetables evenly.
- Bake for 10 minutes.
- Remove pizza from oven and add spinach and cheese on top.
- Place back in oven for additional 7-10 minutes, until crust is golden brown.
- Let cool slightly and serve.
