Try this tasty one-pan dish for an easy low-mess breakfast or brunch. This recipe also works well with bacon or sausage instead of ham. I sometimes saute chopped peppers and onions until tender and whisk them in with the eggs for added flavor and color. —Andrea Bolden, Unionville, Tennessee

Pizza Night: The Best Sausage PizzasTaste of Home

Pizza Night: The Best Sausage Pizzas
