Upside down and backwards

Jon often works a different schedule from me. So, a lot of the time, I am ready for dinner but he is ready for breakfast or lunch. The other day he requested on his favorites that would please us both: breakfast pizza.

Like most pizzas, this one is very versatile. Think of this recipe as more of a basic idea and fit it to your personal tastes. It can be as healthy or naughty as you make it. So have fun!

Here's to you and your culinary adventures, friend! Cheers!

Deep Dish Breakfast Pizza
(Listed with Jon's favorite toppings)
Makes 6 servings

1 (8oz) can refrigerated crescent rolls, reduced fat
6 links sausage, cut into bite sized pieces
1/3 cup diced ham
1 1/2 cups frozen shredded hash browns, thawed
1/2 large onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
3 whole eggs or 4 egg whites
3 TBS skim milk
fresh cracked pepper

Preheat oven to 350.

Unroll crescent dough and place on a lightly sprayed, shallow, 8x8 pan. Press seams together. Gently press dough partially up sides of pan to form a crust. Set aside.

In a skillet, brown sausage, ham, and onion over medium heat; drain well and cool slightly.

Sprinkle crust evenly with hash browns. Then meat mixture.

In a bowl, beat eggs, milk and pepper; pour over pizza.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until golden brown.

Let stand 5 minutes before cutting into 6 pieces.
