Bacon, Sausage & Egg Breakfast Pizza, 6 points+

by DanicasDaily on March 1, 2012

Pizza is honestly probably one of my FAVORITE Food Groups of all time ~ for all those out there who LOVE pizza like I do, you will also agree it’s a food group lol.  This breakfast pizza is not just any breakfast pizza ~ it is packed with everything you “NEED” to start your day off on a healthy note ~ Homemade Pesto, Sweet Tomato Slices, Cheddar & Chive Scrambled Eggs, Sausage & Bacon!

The homemade pesto adds a delicious garlicky basil flavor that compliments the sweet tomatoes, salty, crunchy bacon and sausage.  I think Chorizo would be amazing if you wanted to kick it up a notch and make it spicy.

BACON, SAUSAGE & EGG BREAKFAST PIZZA (print it!)

INGREDIENTS

  • 16 oz Fresh, Pre-Made Pizza Dough (I used Trader Joe’s Pizza Dough)
  • 1/4 cup pesto, homemade or store bought (recipe below)
  • 2 roma tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 5 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp fat free mik
  • 2 Tbsp parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup chives, divided
  • 3 slices center cut bacon, cooked
  • 3 Jennie-O Lean Turkey Breakfast Sausages, cooked
  • 2 oz low-fat sharp cheddar cheese, finely shredded

INSTRUCTIONS

1.  Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. While the oven preheats, prepare your pizza dough by rolling it out on a pan or stone and poking it all over with holes. Pre-bake the dough for 8 minutes.

2.  Remove, top with pesto and tomato slices. Bake for 8 minutes.  While the pizza bakes, whip up your scrambled eggs and prepare your pizza toppings.

3.  Whisk together the eggs, parmesan, 1/2 the chives, milk, sea salt and pepper.  Cook in a nonstick skillet sprayed with nonstick spray over medium low heat, until scrambled and fluffy, about 5 minutes.

4.  Remove pizza from oven and add toppings starting with eggs and finishing with remaining chives.  Bake for 2 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Makes 8 slices, 6 points+ each

STEP – BY – STEP:

Start by blending the “Secret” Ingredient in this recipe ~ Homemade Healthy Basil Pesto. 

It is honestly so easy to make, I am pretty sure you will never want to buy store bought once you make it fresh!  I LOVE using this pesto on pasta for a quick dinner, on pizzas for the “sauce”, in eggs and for my Sun Dried Tomato, Pesto Cream Cheese Spread.

1) Blanch 1 – 2 cups of basil leaves. (To blanch – add to boiling water for 1-2 minutes and remove. Drain and run under cold water.) Set aside.

2) Add 1 chicken or vegetable bouillon cube to ¼ c hot water. Set aside.

3) Combine in the food processor (a blender will also work): blanched basil, 4-6 cloves of fresh garlic, olive oil. Add about 1-2 teaspoons of chicken broth – (Only use the amount of chicken broth needed to blend ingredients. You will not use the entire ¼ c.)

4) Blend the ingredients in the food processor until creamy and well blended.

Looks yummy…but how do you get your Trader Joe’s pizza dough so perfectly round? Mine never stays put on the pizza stone, and it’s definitely not a circle! I have a hard time spreading the dough out…Any tips?
