Recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 1 batch of homemade pizza dough or store-bought
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 8 large eggs
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons of cold water
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons of butter
  • 1 1/4 cups of shredded provolone cheese
  • 1 cup of shredded Pepper Jack cheese
  • 6 slices of crispy bacon, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 pound of bulk pork breakfast sausage, browned
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, finely diced
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • Salsa (optional, for serving)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit and oil a 10×15-inch rimmed baking sheet.
  2. Gently work your pizza dough onto the baking sheet by pressing it with your fingers and hands. It may take some time to stretch the dough to fit the sheet, but be patient. Once it stays in place, use your hands to create a crust by pushing some of the dough up against the sides of the baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for 7-8 minutes.
  3. In a bowl, beat the eggs with cold water. Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the egg mixture and cook slowly, gently rotating them with a spatula. It’s important to slightly undercook the eggs since they will cook further in the oven. Season the eggs with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Spoon the scrambled eggs onto the partially baked pizza crust.
  4. Top the eggs with a generous layer of both shredded provolone and Pepper Jack cheese, followed by the crispy chopped bacon, browned breakfast sausage, diced red bell pepper, and chopped green onions.
  5. Return the pizza to the oven and bake for an additional 10-12 minutes, turning on the broiler for the last 1-2 minutes to achieve a golden, bubbly crust. Rotate the baking sheet several times during the broiling process to ensure even cooking, and keep a close eye on it as broilers can be unpredictable.
  6. Once done, remove the Breakfast Fiesta Pizza from the oven and let it cool slightly before slicing. Serve with a dollop of salsa on the side, if desired.

Tips and Variations:

  • Experiment with different toppings to suit your taste preferences. Try adding sliced mushrooms, diced tomatoes, smoked ham, or even a drizzle of homemade sausage gravy for extra indulgence.
  • For a spicy kick, toss some pickled jalapenos or diced green chilies onto your pizza before baking.
  • If you’re short on time, you can use refrigerated pizza dough or even canned crescent rolls as a convenient alternative.
  • Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for up to three days or frozen for longer-term enjoyment. Simply reheat in the microwave or oven until warmed through.
