Brunch Pizza with Eggs

Overview of a sliced pizza with drippy eggs, sausage, and spinach on top.

Ingredients

Scale
    • 1 tsp. light-tasting olive oil, plus more for coating
    • Refrigerated pizza dough (whole grain, if possible)
    • ~8-12 oz breakfast sausage patties of your choosing (chicken, pork, turkey, or plant-based)
    • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
    • 8 oz. shredded mozzarella cheese (1 bag usually is 8 oz.) 
    • 5 oz. bag of fresh spinach, chopped finely, divided
    • 3 eggs
    • Red pepper flake, to taste (optional)

 

Instructions

  1. Remove pizza dough from refrigerator and allow to rest at room temp for about 20-30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Lightly coat a baking sheet or pizza pan with olive oil. Allow the baking sheet to preheat in the oven for about 5-10 minutes.  
  2. Heat 1 tsp. olive in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage patties, breaking them apart as they cook until they are fully cooked and crumbled. Drain on paper towels if necessary. 
  3. Working on a surface sprinkled with flour, roll out pizza dough into about a 12 inch round (or oval like me!) Sprinkle garlic powder all over pizza dough. Remove preheated pan from oven, and transfer the seasoned dough to pan. 
  4. Save a large handful of the spinach to sprinkle on top after pizza is cooked for a fresh taste (optional) — top dough with remaining spinach, sausage, and mozzarella cheese. Aim to leave a little bit of space to place eggs later. 
  5. Bake pizza for about 10 minutes. Remove from the oven. Top pizza with eggs, gently cracking eggs onto crust while keeping the yolks intact.
  6. Put pizza back in oven and cook for additional 8-10 minutes or until crust is golden brown and egg whites are set. 
  7. Top with red pepper flake and extra spinach, if using. Serve immediately.
