pizza dough (homemade or store bought)
2 tablespoons olive oil
8 large eggs
fresh ground black pepper
2 tablespoons cool water
1 1 /2 tablespoons butter
1 1/4 cups shredded provolone
1 cup shredded Pepper Jack Cheese
6 slices bacon cooked crispy coarsely chopped
1/2 lb. bulk pork breakfast sausage browned
1/2 red pepper finely diced
3 green onions chopped
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Oil a 10×15-inch rimmed baking sheet.
Work your pizza dough around the baking sheet by pressing gently with your fingers and hands. It may take a little time to work the pizza dough out as it tends to pull back from the sides. Once it seems to stay put, use your hands to tuck and push a little of the dough up against the side of the baking sheet creating a crust. Bake in the oven for 7-8 minutes.
Beat the eggs and water together. Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add egg mixture and cook slowly, rotating them gently with a spatula. Be sure to slightly undercook the eggs as they are cooked again in the oven. Season the eggs with kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper Spoon the eggs onto the pizza dough.
Top the eggs with both kinds of cheese, cooked bacon, cooked sausage, red pepper, and scallions.
Place back in the oven for 10-12 minutes, turning on the broiler for the last 1-2 minutes. Rotate the baking sheet several times during the broiling process and stay close by, as I have always found broilers somewhat unpredictable.
Many grocery stores and bakeries sell ready-made pizza dough. If your time is limited, and mine often is, then this is a real blessing. You can also use refrigerated pizza crust in the can.
Feel free to cook your bacon and sausage in advance and store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to assemble.
Undercook your scrambled eggs by cooking on low and cutting off the heat early. The idea is to have them set enough to hold up on the pizza dough.
Feel free to use any type of good pizza melting cheese, such as mozzarella cheese, cheddar cheese, provolone, Gouda, and Baby Swiss. Have fun and mix it up with whatever cheese you love.
The pizza can be customized with various veggies like mushrooms, zucchini, jalapenos, or potatoes.
For a change of pace, add a layer of White Gravy right under the eggs like you would pizza sauce.
The broiler adds a nice touch that sometimes the normal oven temperature will not produce. However, broilers can be very unpredictable, so stay close by and rotate the baking sheet several times.
Store leftovers in a storage bag in the fridge for up to 3 days or in a freezer bag frozen for up to 2 months. Reheat in the microwave at 50% power for 1 – 1 1/2 minutes or until warm.
