Remember those homemade maple breakfast sausage? Well I'm about to blow your mind even more with this BREAKFAST PIZZA, using that exact recipe as a tasty sweet and savory topping.

Don't you love when you can find all your recipes in one place? That's my goal for this blog, as I slowly but surely pick up the pace and start churning out more regular content. Gotta keep you fine folks coming back for more, right? That was my I motivation a couple of weekends ago when I made both this pizza and that sausage on the same day, knowing that they would pair well together but still work as their own recipes.

Amazing things happen when you combine my favorite meal (breakfast) with one of my favorite dishes (pizza). You get the exciting guilty pleasure of indulging in pizza first thing in the morning without the subconscious asking you, “Really? Pizza for breakfast… again?” But yo, this is breakfast pizza so it's ALLOWED. It COUNTS as breakfast, OK? And let me tell you, it feels oh so good to beat the system and ‘indulge.'

As you know, I love a dish that can be made in a variety of ways, obviously pizza being one of them. Customized meals are the name of the game, and I wouldn't have it any other way. I've got a good handful of other versions of this scrummy breakfast option if you all receive it well! And I am hoping you do because I am SO ready to do some uh, taste testing ;)

Earlier this winter we visited extended family for a big holiday celebration. At this celebration, the family always makes a ton of breakfast pizza for the morning after because a) it's a crowd favorite, and b) it's easy to prepare in bulk. After having had this breakfast pizza I was craving it when we got home Not necessarily the exact kind that we had, but just the whole concept of pizza in the morning had me totally psyched to switch up our menu. This motivated me to whip together my own version – far different from what I'd previously had but still totally satisfying my craving.

This Tuscan Breakfast Pizza is compromised of crumbled maple breakfast sausage, sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, fresh parmesan cheese, mozzarella, and of course, eggs. There is that important layer of tomato sauce beneath all the toppings but that is mostly there to keep everything together. I opted for a pre-made store bought dough, but if you happen to be a pizza dough connoisseur you are more than welcome to use a homemade one – everything is better homemade and I hope to eventually have my own recipe to offer you.

The other wonderful part of this meal is that it is so easy and takes a very small amount of time. It obviously becomes just a bit more involved if you decide to make your own sausage, but overall, this singular recipe is fast. The total bake time is just 10-15 minutes, depending on how you like your eggs cooked. Seware loves his runny, I like mine a little more on the firm side. It all comes down to your preference and how powerful your oven is!

I hope you enjoy it as much as we did! We actually had it for breakfast one morning and then ate the leftovers for lunch the next day. It reheats quite nicely if you toss it in the oven for a few minutes!
