Breakfast Pizza

This one really lived up to it's name because it was actually made at 8am in the morning. I should start keeping pizza dough in the fridge from now on, it's incredibly convenient. The whole thing took about 30 minutes to make...Okay maybe that's a little too much time to devote to breakfast but I was doing other stuff while it was in the oven.

Also, I got a new camera, as you can probably tell from my last post! I still don't know how to use it well so I haven't gotten a good picture yet. Still working on it. The pictures from this morning turned out way better, but that can only be determined by "Foodgawker".

Anyway, all I put on the pizza was marinara sauce, cheese, sausage, and eggs. In my opinion, that's all that is required to make a pizza taste good. I added some more herbs after just because they've been sitting in my pot and needs to be eaten.

I used the basic pizza dough recipe from my previous Spinach and Chicken Pizza so you can get the recipe from there. 

1 pizza dough recipe (makes 2 pizzas)
4 spicy sausages (2 per pizza)
marinara sauce
1 cup of your favorite cheese ( I used white cheddar on this one)
4 eggs per pizza
fresh herbs 

Stretch the dough into the shape of your pan. No rolling pin required if your dough was properly rested. Cover it with a thin layer of marinara sauce. I say thin because a lot of people have the wrong idea of covering it with lots of pizza sauce. The only thing that will do is make a soggy pizza and it doesn't taste too good. One of those soup ladles will be enough.

Take the sausages out of their casing and and break them up in the pan. After they've browned, take half of them and added it to the pizza. Cover with 1/2 cup of shredded cheese.

Bake in a hot oven (425) for 6 minutes. Crack 4 eggs on top and bake for another 10 minutes. The yolks should be slightly runny after 10 minutes. Cook it for longer if you prefer a hard yolk.

I used a combination of basil and cilantro on this pizza. They were baby herbs so they didn't over power one another.
