If you’re on the hunt for the absolute BEST Hearty Sausage Breakfast Pizza Recipe, you’ve come to the right place! Scroll to the bottom for an easy-to-print recipe.
You know the saying that if you see a need, you should step in? Well, that’s what I did and I’m so glad because the results were the creation of my Hearty Sausage Breakfast Pizza Recipe!
Between Sunday School and Church, we’d have snacks and beverages out during the 30 minute social time. For as long as I can remember, this would consist of cookies, donuts, and basically anything with sugar. Of course, the beverages would be coffee, juices, and water. I actually stopped going for snack because the sugar rush was just too much for me personally. But because I started hearing the same thing from others, I stepped up to join the kitchen crew and help make a change.
The first thing I suggested was to offer some ‘hot’ and healthier options. But the tricky part was coming up with ideas that were easy to eat, didn’t require silverware, and were budget friendly. Oh, and not to mention EASY TO MAKE since we fed 75-100 people each week. Talk about knocking most things off the list right from the get-go. My first thought was my Baked French Toast Recipe. Everyone LOVES it and it’s so sweet that it doesn’t require syrup. But it was a little more labor intensive that what I wanted to take on. So I did what many do these days; I put out a Facebook pole.
The Facebook Pole Results
I actually got a decent amount of suggestions back! Although I will say that many people didn’t follow my listed guides (easy to make, easy to eat, budget friendly). However, one suggestion stuck out at me: Breakfast Pizza. So I google searched for a recipe. But no matter how many I looked at, none appealed to me so I made up my own. And based on the fact that I must have gotten at least 25+ requests for the recipe from fellow church goers, I’d say it turned out amazing!
Hearty Sausage Breakfast Pizza Recipe – The Best You’ve Ever Tasted!
Seriously! I’m not trying to toot my own horn. But so many people have complimented me on this recipe. It became the ultimate request at church. So if you are wanting a Hearty Sausage Breakfast Pizza Recipe that offers delicious flavors and a soft and chewy crust, do yourself a favor and try this one.
- Homemade Pizza Dough Recipe (You can substitute for a store crust but you’ll be missing out on the total experience. This homemade dough is super easy to make so take the time to give it a try if you can.)
- 6-8 Scrambled Eggs, seasoned with salt and pepper
- 1 Jar Salsa (I LOVE Aldi’s Mild Salsa for this recipe but you can use any brand as well as homemade.)
- 4 ounces (1/2 container) Plain Cream Cheese Spread (like what you put on bagels)
- 1/2 Small Container Sausages
- 1/2 Package Pepperoni Slices
- Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
- Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
- Mix on the Homemade Pizza Dough Recipe. NOTE: Do NOT let it rise for the 10 minutes after placing in the pan for the Hearty Breakfast Pizza Recipe. Skip that step.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Grease a 12×18 sheet pan.
- After the crust has risen for an hour, press into your greased pan and immediately bake for 3-5 minutes.
- As the crust is baking, scramble and fry up 6-8 eggs. Be sure to season with salt and pepper.
- Pull crust out of the oven. It will not be done yet but you only want it 1/2 baked at this point.
- Spread a thin layer of the plain cream cheese spread over the crust. Because the crust is hot, it spreads pretty easily. But be gentle, avoiding tearing the crust.
- Pour the jar of salsa over the top and spread to coat evenly with a spoon.
- Top with scrambled eggs.
- Sprinkle with a thin layer of mozzarella cheese.
- Add sausages and pepperoni slices.
- Top with a layer of mozzarella cheese.
- Sprinkle a thin layer of sharp cheddar cheese over the top.
- Put the pan back in the oven and bake for another 20-30 minutes, or till crust has finished baking and cheese is bubbly.

I always like to start by gathering up my ingredients. Having everything ready to go and near at hand makes the cooking part easier.
Making On The Crust
As I mentioned, while you can use store bought pizza crusts, this Homemade Dough Recipe is a real winner and helps make this recipe a home run. It’s easy to make so try to carve out the time to whip it up and let it rise. Then be sure to bake for a couple minutes before moving on to your next step.
Cream Cheese Spread
Because the crust is hot from the pre-bake, the cream cheese spread is easier to apply to the crust. Use a spoon to spread.
Next up is spreading a layer of salsa over the crust. You can use your favorite jarred or canned salsa. I love the mild one from Aldi.
Next Comes The Scrambled Eggs
Sprinkle the scrambled eggs evenly over the top of the salsa.
Add A Thin Layer Of Mozzarella Cheese
This helps the eggs and the next layer melt together.
Sausages And Pepperoni Slices
Place the desired amount of sausages and pepperoni slices as the next layer.
Finally, add an additional layer of mozzarella cheese and a thin sprinkle of sharp cheddar cheese.
Time To Bake
Place the pizza back into the oven to finish baking.
Once your crust is thoroughly cooked and cheese is bubbly, remove from the oven. Cut immediately and serve this pizza piping hot!
