INSTRUCTIONS FOR BEEF BREAKFAST PIZZA OLÉ

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Prepare Basic Country Beef Breakfast Sausage. Stir in salsa verde.
  2. 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." 
  3. 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 Breakfast 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 ground beef. Ground Beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F. Color is not a reliable indicator of Ground Beef doneness.) Makes 2-1/2 cups crumbles

A tad bland - but full disclosure I didn't add mushrooms or spinach as I didn't have them. Honestly (and this will probably get deleted :) ) the recipe would work better with sage breakfast sausage. As well some finely chopped jalapenos would work. I do like the concept of this recipe.

This is the best breakfast recipe! I made the filling the night before then for breakfast just filled the dough and popped in the oven and it didn't take long to cook
