How To Make Crescent Roll Breakfast Pizza Recipe
Crescent Roll Breakfast Pizza Casserole Ingredients:
1/2 lb cooked ground turkey sausage or ground beef
3 scrambled eggs
1 cup shredded cheese (I used Kraft Colby & Monterey Jack)
1/2 cup bell peppers, washed and diced
8 count Pillsbury crescents rolls
Kosher salt and black pepper (to taste)
9 x 9-inch baking dish
Step 1: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9 x 9″ baking dish with a nonstick cooking spray.
If you don’t have any spray, grease the pan with butter or put down some parchment paper or wax paper. The fluffy dough will stick to your baking dish as it expands.
Step 2: Scramble your eggs in a large skillet (salt and pepper to taste) and brown sausage or beef (separately) in your preferred method. Set each in a small bowl on the side when done.
Step 3: Wash and dry your peppers with some paper towels. Dice the yellow, orange, or red peppers into bite-size pieces.
Step 4: Open your crescent roll dough and cut it down the middle (ignore the other pre-cut lines – you want two squares).
Place one layer on top of the other crescent dough sheet in the bottom of the pan. Press the crescent roll sheets together as best as you can to make one solid sheet. This is your pizza crust.
Step 5: Sprinkle 1/4 cup of your shredded cheese on top of the crescent rolls layer.
Step 6: Place a layer of scrambled eggs on top of the cheese, spreading them across the entire casserole.
Step 7: Sprinkle sausage or ground beef on top of the eggs.
Step 8: Place your diced peppers on top of the meat.
Step 9: Take the remaining shreds and sprinkle cheese on top of the peppers. Feel free to add additional cheese if you’d like.
Step 10: Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the crescent roll crust is cooked fully and golden brown and the gooey cheese has melted.
It is easiest if you use a see-through baking dish because of this step, but if you haven’t, you should be good by the 45-minute mark.
Step 11: Slice the crescent roll breakfast casserole with a pizza cutter or sharp knife. Serve hot and enjoy!
How To Store Leftover Crescent Roll Breakfast Pizza Casserole
Store any leftovers in the baking dish under aluminum foil or plastic wrap or in an airtight container for up to three days.
Can I Add Different Ingredients To This Easy Breakfast Pizza Recipe?
Yes! After you open the package of crescent rolls and place them in the bottom, you can mix it up!
Choose your favorite cheese shred (parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, cheddar cheese, pepper jack cheese), use green pepper or green onions instead of the lighter bell peppers (or in addition to!), or turn it into a bacon breakfast pizza with some crispy bacon.
Choose your favorite ingredients for the first time and change them up for the next time. Make it your favorite way!
Can I Make This Breakfast Pizza On A Pizza Pan?
Yes! You can make this on a 12-inch pizza pan, pizza stone, or large sheet pan if you choose.
To do this, you will need to roll out the crescent dough with a rolling pin (as you would regular pizza dough) before placing it on the chosen pan.
Keep in mind that using a casserole dish will allow you to keep all of the ingredients on top of the pizza casserole, so attempt to use a rimmed baking sheet instead of a rimless one.
