Our boys discovered that you can use my Whole Wheat Pizza Crust to make an awesome Breakfast Pizza. They also discovered that if you work ahead in your math book, you will finish ahead of schedule. On the contrary, if you avoid doing math some days, you will have to do double the lessons on the days you’d really rather go outside and play with your brothers on the trampoline.
But back to the pizza.
Make it just like you would a regular homemade pizza, using this crust recipe. Top it with salsa, scrambled eggs, cheese, and any other toppings of choice – like veggies and meat. Homemade Turkey Sausage is great on this pizza!
Bake it as directed. Serve with fruit.
Without adding meat, I found that it cost about $4.52 to make this meal, which filled my family of six. That’s about 75¢ per person, for a meal that actually sticks with them for several hours!
Easy, delicious, filling, versatile, inexpensive, and healthy. What more could you want? (Except maybe to be finished with math lessons for the year.)
*I calculated my cost based on the food sources and prices I have available to me. Most of the ingredients I use are organic. Your cost may be slightly more or less depending on where you find your ingredients.

As much as my children love pizza, I wonder if they’d go for pizza with eggs and cheese on top? I have some nitrate free bacon – wonder if that could entice them? Thanks for the idea!
I was sceptical too, but went with it because my boys liked the idea. It was surprisingly good!
I make breakfast pizza like this but use cream sausage gravy as the “sauce” on the crust. (we grew up eating gravy on our scrambled eggs, not so healthy but oh, so yummy!) I top it with eggs, bacon, sausage and cheese. (husband doesn’t do salsa with eggs) I make my pizza dough in the bread maker, recipe from http://www.skinnymomskitchen.com but use 1 cup whole wheat flour instead of all white flour.
I use gravy too. Whenever I make biscuits and gravy and have leftover, the gravy goes in the freezer for breakfast pizza. I also use my biscuit recipe for the crust instead of pizza (much quicker).
We make breakfast pizza by topping the pizza crust with homemade apple butter and cheddar cheese. :-)

Do you make the dough ahead of time? What are your tips for this? Could I make it the night before and let it rise overnight in the refrigerator? Thank you!
Instead of salsa I make a cheese sauce using cheddar. Mmmmm, cheese!
With limited funds…I chose not to get the bundle because it didnt’ include YOUR cookbook! I am saving up! I can’t wait to have your cookbook in our kitchen.

Mm, this looks rather yummy. I don’t really care for the flavor of plain eggs, but I do like omelets and such… I think this is something I should try making soon. :)
Campbell’s makes a cheddar soup that goes fantastic as a base for this, too and it doesn’t add much cost to the pizza.
