Sausage Breakfast Loaf

"The recipe for this sausage roll has been in my family for years," says Luella Drake of Auburn, Indiana. "A tube of refrigerated pizza dough makes it quick and easy, but it tastes like it took hours to prepare."
  • Total Time
    Prep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min.
  • Makes
    6 servings


  • 1 pound smoked kielbasa or Polish sausage, julienned
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 tube (10 ounces) refrigerated pizza dough


  • In a large skillet, saute the sausage; cool. In a large bowl, combine the sausage, cheese, one egg, parsley, onion salt and garlic salt.
  • Unroll pizza dough; roll into a 12x8-in. rectangle. Spread sausage mixture down the center of dough. Bring dough over filling; pinch seams to seal.
  • Place seam side down on a greased baking sheet; tuck ends under. Beat remaining egg; brush over top. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing.

    Please help! Make this annually but every time we thaw and let rise and then try to roll out, the dough fights and fights with us, keeps creeping back. What can we do?

    This recipe was so good! I sauteed Turkey sausage, bell pepper, onions and followed the rest of the instructions as listed. It turned out great and was scrumptious topped with sausage gravy. Will definitely make again!

    I thought this recipe was delicious: it can double for breakfast, brunch, or even lunch in my opinion. The sausage I used was a bit greasy, however, so beware to pick a good brand—probably not Polish sausage, if you are looking to minimize fat content.

    My kids loved this and they are pretty picky. It was very easy. I will make it again and sneak in some onions and mushrooms.

    Super easy and very tasty. Use any kind of sausage you have on hand. You can use whatever cheese you have too. I added onions to saute with the sausage, I'll add other veggies next time. An easy way to transfer to the pan after filling is to make on one cookie sheet and place the other cookie sheet to bake it on, on top of the dough and flip it over. I also used parchment paper instead of greasing the pan which helped with sticking and cleanup.
