School Breakfast Pizza
When I was in Middle School, I remembered the delicious slice of breakfast pizza that the cafeteria women served! Breakfast was one of the meals of the day that I seemed to favor. Maybe because my mom isn’t American, so scrambled eggs and breakfast pizza weren’t typical breakfast dishes.
Well, many years later I remembered the School Breakfast Pizza again. I wanted to recreate a morning pizza with toppings along the lines of how I remembered it being back in school. So sausage, eggs, and cheese were on the essential list of ingredients.
Over time, I so, slightly recall a white pizza sauce on the school breakfast pizza rather than a red-based tomato sauce which is what lead me to use homemade sausage gravy (which by the freezes amazingly for times when you need to whip up a pizza sauce!)
Sausage Gravy Breakfast Pizza
Using sausage gravy is an all-inclusive sauce! Since chunks of pork sausage are already in this sausage gravy it’s only brilliant to use it as a pizza sauce, (pork sausage + a roux = yummy white sauce!)
If you didn’t know sausage gravy freezes well, your in for a real surprise! It’s the only way I make sausage now! I like to double my sausage gravy, cool it then pack into sandwich bags into 2 cup portions for a shortcut to biscuits and gravy or when I need some sauce for breakfast pizza! It’s a huge time saver! Then when I need some gravy I’ll peel off the freezer bag and pop the frozen block right into the pot and heat it up while the biscuits bake. You can simply pop the frozen gravy into the microwave for a quick defrost too or thaw the night before.
The sausage gravy makes a real creamy sauce over a homemade pizza crust and toppings like cheese and eggs are the basics of creating a pizza for breakfast. Any additional toppings like bacon, peppers, or other veggies can easily be included.
Casey’s Breakfast Pizza
Apparently, a Midwestern convenience store called Casey’s sells these kinds of pizza pies on their breakfast menu! They have 3 breakfast pizzas to choose from which are Sausage Breakfast Pizza, Bacon Breakfast Pizza, and Veggie Breakfast Pizza. Each pizza has a choice of a cheese sauce or sausage gravy as the sauce. So, I’m not the only one who uses sausage gravy for pizza!
