Mini Breakfast Pizzas

I almost didn't take a picture of this dish.  Last minute, I decided to snap a few shots.  BOY am I glad I did, so I could share it with all of you.  I LOVED these mini pizzas and they were SO SIMPLE to make.
What a genius idea using biscuits as the crust.  They were so easy to roll out and turned out buttery and flaky and soft and chewy!

If your family has a weekly pizza night, this would be such a fun twist on that.  I always love dishes that are easy to customize per each family members taste and everyone can be happy.  We decided to go the Mexican flavor route and it was AHH-MAZING!
Mini Breakfast Pizzas
This version from: Jenn@eatcakefordinner
Inspired by: Inspired By Charm
(Printable Recipe) or (Printable with Picture)

4 Pillsbury Grands Flaky Layers Butter Tastin' Biscuits*
5 large eggs
1/2 lb. breakfast sausage, cooked and crumbled
3/4 c. Pepper Jack or Monterey cheese, shredded
4 Tbl. Feta cheese
green salsa
chopped cilantro

*These biscuits come in a 16.3 oz can with 8 biscuits.  The recipe above is only for 4, so I just baked the remaining biscuits plain and served them with honey for dessert.  

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  On a floured surface, roll out biscuits into a 5-inch circle.  Place on a greased baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned.  Meanwhile, scramble eggs until almost done.  You will want them to still be moist and slightly underdone so they don't get overcooked and rubbery in the oven.  Remove biscuit crusts from oven and divide scrambled eggs between the four crusts.  Top each with cooked sausage, Feta cheese and grated Pepper Jack or Monterey.  Return to oven for 3-5 minutes or until cheese is melted.  Remove from oven and drizzle with green salsa and garnish with chopped cilantro.  Slice and serve.  Serves: 2-4 people.

Other variations:
-Combine 2 Tbl. dijon and 4 Tbl. mayo for a sauce
-Use Bacon instead of sausage
-Ham and Swiss cheese
-Ham, chopped green pepper and Cheddar cheese
-Cheese and Veggies only (onions, peppers, tomatoes)
-Any type of cheese (Monterey, Cheddar, Mozzarella)

Jenn's Notes: These were absolutely delicious.  I made the version that I typed above, but I think any variation would be delicious.

  1. I love this idea because I am not a big fan of breakfast but pizza for breakfast sounds great! Why didn't I think of using biscuits for a crust? I guess because you and some other creative cook are way more inventive than I am. LOL. Can't wait to try it choosing some of the delicious toppings you listed. Thanks-- Shannon

  5. what a great idea to use biscuits for the crust! Do you have to use the buttery kind, or will flaky layers orginal be ok? Oh and I like gravy would be great to use a the "pizza sauce", and then top with whatever you little heart desires!

    1. I know huh! Easy & delicious. You can use whatever biscuits you like, I just really like the buttery ones! There are so many different possibilities and I think gravy would make an amazing "pizza sauce" - I love gravy! - Jenn
