Contest-Winning Brunch Pizza Recipe

This is one of my family’s favorite breakfast dishes. Packed with two kinds of meat and plenty of veggies, it's so satisfying—and it always garners raves when I serve it. —Marty Schwartz, Sarasota, Florida
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 35 min. Bake: 15 min. YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 tube (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1/2 pound bacon strips, chopped
  • 1/2 pound bulk pork sausage
  • 1/2 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 small green pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 8 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 2 plum tomatoes, chopped
  • 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • Picante sauce and additional sour cream, optional

Directions

  • 1. Unroll crescent dough into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish; seal seams and perforations. Bake at 375° for 6-8 minutes or until golden brown.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, cook bacon and sausage over medium heat until bacon is crisp and sausage is no longer pink. Using a slotted spoon, remove meat to paper towels; drain, reserving 2 tablespoons drippings. In the drippings, saute the mushrooms, onion and green pepper. Remove and set aside.
  • 3. Heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add eggs; cook and stir until almost set.
  • 4. In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, sour cream, garlic and Italian seasoning; spread over crust. Layer with eggs, bacon and sausage, sauteed vegetables, tomatoes and mozzarella.
  • 5. Bake at 375° for 15-18 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve with picante sauce and additional sour cream if desired. Yield: 12 pieces.
