Beef Breakfast Pizza Olé
Total Recipe Time: 40 to 45 minutes
1 recipe Basic Country Beef Breakfast Sausage (recipe follows)
1/2 cup salsa verde
1 package (11 ounces) thin-crust refrigerated pizza dough
3/4 cup diced seeded tomatoes
1/2 cup reduced-fat shredded Mexican blend cheese
2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onions
- Preheat oven to 425°F. Prepare Basic Country Beef Breakfast Sausage. Stir in salsa verde.
- Meanwhile, unroll dough on greased baking sheet. Pat or roll evenly to 14 X 10-inch rectangle, pinching together any tears, if necessary. Bake 8 minutes. Remove from oven and top evenly with beef mixture, tomatoes and cheese. Make four “wells” in beef mixture and crack one egg in each “well.”
- Continue to bake in 425°F oven 13 to 18 minutes or until desired doneness of egg is reached. Remove from oven; sprinkle with green onion. Cut into four wedges. Serve with additional salsa, as desired.
Basic Country Beef Sausage: Combine 1 pound ground beef (96% lean), 2 teaspoons chopped fresh sage or 1/2 teaspoon rubbed sage, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon onion powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium high heat until hot. Add beef mixture; cook 8 to 10 minutes, breaking into 3/4-inch crumbles and stirring occasionally.(Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed beef sausage. Ground beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.)
