Pizza is always a solid choice at breakfast time, and this particular pie, topped with sausage, eggs and cheddar cheese, is always a hit. If you wish, you could add or substitute leftover cooked greens or roasted vegetables, sliced ham or crisp bacon.
- One 12-inch parbaked pizza crust
- 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
- 6 ounces breakfast sausage links
- 4 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
- 1 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered lengthwise
- 2 scallions, thinly sliced
- 4 large eggs
- Kosher salt
- Freshly ground pepper
- Hot sauce, for serving
Step 1 Preheat the oven to 450°. Place the pizza crust on a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Step 2 In a medium skillet, cook the sausage links in the 1 teaspoon of olive oil over moderate heat until browned, about 10 minutes. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Using a sharp knife, slice the sausages into 1/2-inch rounds.
Step 3 Sprinkle the cheddar evenly over the pizza crust, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Top with the sausage slices, tomatoes and two thirds of the scallions. Bake for 8 minutes, until the cheese is beginning to melt.
Step 4 Transfer the pizza to a rack. Crack 1 egg into a small bowl, then carefully slide it onto the pizza. Repeat with the remaining 3 eggs. Season the pizza with salt and pepper and bake it for another 10 minutes or so, until the egg whites are set but the yolks are still runny.
Step 5 Transfer the pizza to cutting board. Garnish with the remaining scallions and drizzle with olive oil. Cut into wedges and serve with hot sauce.
