All the ingredients needed to make Sausage Gravy Breakfast Pizza.

Sausage Gravy Pizza

In a large heavy-bottom skillet (I like my 12-inch Lodge cast iron skillet) over medium high heat, cook and crumble the ground sausage until it’s fully cooked and nicely browned; do not drain any fats.

Empty both packets of the gravy mix into the cooked sausage in the skillet.

Over medium heat, stir the dry gravy mix into the sausage crumbles allowing it to cook for 2-3 minutes so it can brown a bit. 

Don’t skip this step – it may seem weird, but is essential for the gravy to taste really good as a finished product.

Remove the skillet from the heat, then pour first the water and then the milk, a little at a time, into the crumbled sausage mixture in the skillet, stirring until the liquids have incorporated but the gravy is still thin.

Return the skillet to medium heat and cook, whisking constantly until the gravy is fully thickened, smooth (except for the sausage crumbles), and hot throughout; keep warm.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper.A

Meanwhile, over medium heat, melt the butter in a large nonstick skillet.

Pour the prepared egg mixture into the melted butter in the skillet; use a silicone spatula to gently stir the eggs, stirring occasionally.

Cook the scrambled eggs just until they are set and fluffy, approx. 2-3 minutes.

Don’t overcook the eggs or they will be dry. Remember that the eggs will continue to cook in the oven as the pizza bakes.

Sprinkle 1 cup of the shredded cheese over the eggs, stirring gently to combine, then remove the pan from the heat.

Place the pizza crusts onto pizza pans, then gently spoon the cooked eggs equally onto each one.

Dollop 2 cups of the sausage gravy over the eggs on each pizza; sprinkle 1/2 cup shredded cheese over the gravy. (Pizza is pictured without the cheese on top.)

Bake the breakfast pizzas, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes, rotating them top to bottom half way through the baking time.

The pizzas should be hot and bubbly throughout and golden brown on the bottom.

Remove the pizzas from the oven and garnish immediately with chopped scallions and red bell peppers, if desired.

Let the pizzas rest for 5 minutes before slicing.

Can You Use Canned Sausage Gravy?

Yep. Here’s the one (see the photo below) that I’ve used a couple of times instead of making my own gravy.

Just warm it up and top the eggs with the gravy as directed in Step 8 of the recipe card.

Two cans of gravy isn’t quite enough, but three is almost too much – adjust as you prefer.

Can I Cut This Recipe In Half?

Absolutely and it works just fine. Or, go ahead and make/bake two and freeze one for later, then just reheat.

Would Plain Country Gravy Make A Good Breakfast Pizza?

Yes, not quite as hearty and delicious in my opinion, but still very good.

Tips for Making

It’s important that the bottom of the pizza crust is golden brown so it will be crispy, making it much easier to cut and chew.

Plus, baking the crust until it’s deeply golden brown gives it tons more flavor.

To be sure the crust gets golden brown on the bottom, you can move the pizza to the lowest oven rack for the last 5-10 minutes of the baking time, if needed. (This depends on how your oven bakes, too.)

When you add the dry gravy mixes to the pan of cooked sausage, be sure to cook and stir this mixture together for 1-2 minutes before adding the milk.

This allows the dry gravy mix to brown a bit with the sausage so it’s got really good flavor going once you add the milk – this is an important step!
