Beef Breakfast Pizza Olé

Layer homemade breakfast sausage, tomatoes and cheese on pizza crust and top with eggs. Impressive to say the least.


  • 1 recipe Basic Country Beef Breakfast Sausage (recipe follows)
  • 1/2 cup salsa verde
  • 1 package (11 ounces) thin-crust refrigerated pizza dough
  • 3/4 cup diced seeded tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat shredded Mexican blend cheese
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onions
  • Salsa verde


  • 1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Prepare Basic Country Beef Breakfast Sausage. Stir in salsa verde.

    Basic Country Beef Breakfast Sausage: Combine 1 pound Ground Beef (96% lean), 2 teaspoons chopped fresh sage or 1/2 teaspoon rubbed sage, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon onion powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium high heat until hot. Add sausage mixture; cook 8 to 10 minutes, breaking into 1/2-inch crumbles and stirring occasionally.

  • 2. Meanwhile, unroll dough on greased baking sheet. Pat or roll evenly to 14 X 10-inch rectangle, pinching together any tears, if necessary. Bake 8 minutes. Remove from oven and top evenly with sausage mixture, tomatoes and cheese. Make four "wells" in beef mixture and crack one egg in each "well." 

  • 3. Continue to bake in 425°F oven 13 to 18 minutes or until desired doneness of egg is reached. Remove from oven; sprinkle with green onion. Cut into four wedges. Serve with additional salsa, as desired.

  • Test Kitchen Tips Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed ground beef. Ground beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.
