  • eggs: You’ll want to scramble these first before assembling and cooking your pizza. 
  • cottage cheese creamy cheese sauce
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • optional toppings: diced bell peppers, onions, tomatoes, or salsa.
  • fresh herbs: Such as chopped parsley or chives for garnish

Cottage Cheese Sauce

  1. Blend the sauce: Add the cottage cheese and nutritional yeast to a blender or food processor and blend until creamy and smooth. 

Breakfast Pizza

  1. Preheat the oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Cook eggs and sausage: Whisk eggs and prepare your egg mixture as you would to make scrambled eggs. In a large skillet or pan over medium heat, scramble the eggs and set aside. Then, using the same or another skillet, cook and prepare the sausage. Set aside. 
  3. Prepare the tortilla: Place the tortilla on a baking sheet or a pizza stone.
  4. Add the cheese sauce: Smear the cottage cheesy sauce evenly over the tortilla, leaving a small border around the edges.
  5. Add eggs, sausage, and cheese: Distribute the scrambled eggs over the cheesy sauce, followed by the cooked breakfast sausage over the eggs. Add any additional toppings, such as diced bell peppers, onions, or tomatoes.
  6. Top with remaining cheese: Sprinkle the shredded cheese over the sausage and toppings.
  7. Bake in the oven: Place the baking sheet or pizza stone in the preheated oven and bake for about 10-12 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly and the edges of the tortilla are golden and crispy. Enjoy!
  8. OR Cook in the air fryer: Cook at 375F for 5-8 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the edges of the tortilla are crispy.

Expert Tips

  • Toppings: Feel free to top this breakfast pizza recipe with additional toppings of choice. Some good options include diced bell peppers, diced red onions, green onions, diced tomatoes, cilantro, avocado, mushrooms, hot sauce, bacon, spinach, potatoes, hash browns, and different cheeses: parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, pepper jack cheese, Monterey jack, and more! 
  • Crust: As an alternative to tortillas, you’re welcome to use pre-made pizza crust from the grocery store or homemade pizza dough from scratch. Follow the cooking instructions on the package or recipe and add your toppings. 
  • Variations: Instead of sausage breakfast pizza, feel free to use finely chopped bacon (bacon bits) to make bacon breakfast pizza. You could also do chorizo, chicken sausage, or whatever protein you love. Feel free to swap the eggs for scrambled egg whites if desired. 

Serving Tips
