Ingredients

  • 1 recipe homemade whole-wheat pizza dough you can also use store-bought
  • 12 large eggs
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic grated
  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 lb breakfast sausage cooked
  • 2 tbsp sliced green onions optional

Instructions

  • If you haven’t already, make sure the pizza dough is prepared ahead of time and the sausage is cooked.
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Stretch out the pizza dough to fit onto a large sheet pan that's been sprayed with cooking spray.
  • When the oven is at temperature then place the pizza dough in and let it cook for 7-8 minutes. After the dough is cooked take it out of the oven and set it aside.
  • While the dough is pre-cooking make the eggs. Start by whisking together the eggs, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper.
  • Place the egg mixture into a large pan over medium heat. Using a spatula, stir the eggs around the pan until they just start to set then remove the pan from the heat and set aside. The eggs will finish cooking on the pizza.
  • In a small bowl mix together the olive oil and crushed garlic. Using a pastry brush, brush the oil and garlic over the top of the cooked pizza crust.
  • Add the scrambled eggs to the precooked pizza dough and then layer on the cheese and sausage. If you're using any other breakfast pizza toppings you can add those now.
  • Cook in a 375-degree oven for 25 minutes or until the eggs are set and pizza dough is cooked. Sprinkle with green onions (optional) and serve.

Notes

You can use store-bought fresh pizza dough. 1 package or 1lb works just fine with this recipe.
If you’re using whole wheat dough the dough will be more of a tan or light brown color than if you were using all white flour. It’s also not going to rise as high as white crust pizza. This is completely normal.
Other meat toppings to add to the breakfast pizza are ham, Canadian bacon, and cooked bacon.
If you want to add vegetables then mushrooms, bell pepper, spinach, onions, zucchini, and just about any vegetable taste delicious on a breakfast pizza. 
My advice before adding vegetables to pizza is to cook the vegetables first and then drain any liquid. This assures the vegetables are cooked, and there's not a pool of water in the middle after the pizza is cooked.
