Learn how to make sheet pan breakfast pizza for a simple and easy breakfast recipe that is bursting with savory flavor in each bite.

Step 1: The first step is unrolling your crescent roll dough and pressing it down onto a baking sheet. Make sure to press in the creases, so you have 1 even dough in the pan. Bake the pizza dough as directed.

Step 2: Cook up your sausage until it is no longer pink, and then work on making your gravy. Sprinkle in flour, salt, and black pepper, and then slowly stir in the milk. Continuously stir, so that you can smooth out the gravy. Once it is thick it is ready.

Step 3: Pour the gravy on top and spread it out evenly. This is going to be the base or sauce of the pizza.

Storage

Store leftover breakfast pizza in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days once cooked. Reheat in the microwave or oven.

Tips for the Best Crescent Roll Breakfast Pizza

  • Pre-cook the crust, as once you assemble with the egg and bacon, you just pop it back in the oven to melt the cheese. It won’t be that long so you want to make sure the crust is fully cooked.
  • Use precooked bacon or make sure to cook the bacon before topping the pizza.
  • For fluffy eggs, whisk lightly before cooking. Overbeating can make them tough.
  • Adjust the salt and pepper to taste in the sausage gravy for perfect flavor balance.

Additions and Variations

  • Bacon: Swap out the bacon with Canadian bacon, or even just leave it off.
  • Chorizo: If you want your dish to be a bit spicier try using chorizo instead of sausage.
  • Sauce for breakfast pizza: I made a sausage gravy, but you can also use a peppered gravy or a cheese sauce instead.
  • Eggs: If you are not a fan of scrambled, you could make little wells in the pizza and crack and drop eggs right into the pizza.
  • Hash Brown Base: Layer cooked, shredded hash browns on the crust before adding other toppings for extra texture and flavor.

FAQs

How to know when crescent rolls are done?

The top of the crescent roll crust will be a golden brown color. You can gently touch or use a toothpick to stick into the dough to ensure the toothpick comes out clean, free of wet dough.

Why did my gravy become lumpy?

Stirring continuously is key when making gravy. If you do not, it can create lumps as it begins to thicken. So make sure to stir in the flour first, work it in with the meat and grease in the pan, then add in the milk slowly.

Can I halve the recipe?

Yes, you can halve the recipe by using only 1 can of crescent dough and half of the other ingredients.

Total: 40 minutes
The best sheet pan breakfast pizza recipe! Delicious and easy to make with all your favorite breakfast ingredients: flakey crescent rolls, rich sausage gravy, scrambled eggs, and crispy bacon and melty cheese.

Ingredients
 

  • 16 ounces crescent rolls or crescent dough sheet
  • 1 pound breakfast sausage
  • 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 12 large eggs beaten
  • 2 cups shredded colby jack cheese or cheddar
  • 8 slices bacon cooked and chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped chives divided (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a half sheet pan with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  • Roll out the 2 cans of crescent rolls and spread into the pan, pinching the seams together. Bake for about 12 minutes, or until the crust is lightly brown. Remove from the oven and set aside.
  • In a large pan, brown and crumble the sausage over medium-high heat. Once sausage has cooked through, sprinkle with flour, stir, and cook until combined (about 1-2 minutes). Slowly stir in the milk. Cook, stirring constantly, until gravy comes to a low boil. Reduce heat and continue to simmer and stir until thickened (about 4 minutes). Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Pour in the beaten eggs and season with salt pepper. Add a half a tablespoon of chives, if desired. Stir gently and cook until the eggs just come together. Remove the egg mixture from heat.
  • Spread the sausage gravy evenly over the crescent roll crust. Follow with the eggs, cheese, and finally chopped bacon. Bake for 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.
  • Top with remaining chives (if desired) and serve.

Notes

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
