Every weekend my kids want a “REAL” breakfast.  Now, this usually means something like sausage gravy or blueberry buttermilk pancakes but after making the same stuff over and over again for years, I decided to make something different.  Not better, just different :)

My husband was pretty excited when he saw me assembling this breakfast pizza.  I didn’t tell him then that this was a Skinny Breakfast Pizza.  Nor did I tell him later.  I’m kinda sneaky like that.

I knew I could put a healthier spin on this pizza and my family wouldn’t have a clue :)

To make this a healthier version of a breakfast pizza I started with a reduced-fat crescent roll crust.  Not only does this crust give great flavor to the pizza – it was Reece’s favorite part!  I used reduced-fat pork sausage but turkey sausage or bacon would also be great.  Or use the regular versions – totally up to you!

I used refrigerated hash browns to make this pizza super quick to assemble and they worked perfectly! Want to use frozen hash browns? No problem. Just thaw and pat dry with a paper towel before assembling the pizza.

I quickly scrambled some eggs with onion and bell pepper for some great flavor and pretty colors.  The pizza is topped with reduced-fat cheddar cheese and then a sprinkling of green onions once it’s all baked up.

Slice and serve just like a real pizza.  Expect it’s for breakfast. And better.  Chris took this to work the following day and said it was still amazing.  Love that!  This Skinny Breakfast Pizza will definitely be making a frequent appearance at our house from now on!
