Pizza is always a solid choice at breakfast time, and this particular pie, topped with sausage, eggs and cheddar cheese, is always a hit. If you wish, you could add or substitute leftover cooked greens or roasted vegetables, sliced ham or crisp bacon. Slideshow: More Pizza Recipes

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 450°. Place the pizza crust on a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

  • In a medium skillet, cook the sausage links in the 1 teaspoon of olive oil over moderate heat until browned, about 10 minutes. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Using a sharp knife, slice the sausages into 1/2-inch rounds.

  • Sprinkle the cheddar evenly over the pizza crust, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Top with the sausage slices, tomatoes and two thirds of the scallions. Bake for 8 minutes, until the cheese is beginning to melt.

  • Transfer the pizza to a rack.  Crack 1 egg into a small bowl, then carefully slide it onto the pizza. Repeat with the remaining 3 eggs. Season the pizza with salt and pepper and bake it for another 10 minutes or so, until the egg whites are set but the yolks are still runny.

  • Transfer the pizza to cutting board. Garnish with the remaining scallions and drizzle with olive oil. Cut into wedges and serve with hot sauce.
