These savory Deep Dish Breakfast Pizzas are so quick and easy that my kids can cook them on their own with minimal assistance! They are a weekend brunch favorite and a great make-ahead meal for busy weekday mornings!

My boys love to help out in the kitchen, and you will often find at least one of them beside me serving as sous chef. They’ve gotten quite capable in the kitchen, and they can often execute a simple meal all by themselves (with a little bit of assistance when it comes to using the oven). Breakfast is one of their favorite things to cook, so I challenged them to come up with a fun recipe incorporating one of my favorite breakfast foods, Johnsonville Fully Cooked Breakfast Sausage.

The boys suggested that we make one of their favorite dishes, breakfast pizza, in individual serving-size portions, and they were eager to put on their new Johnsonville chefs hats and aprons and get to work.

It didn’t take them long to gather up all of the necessary ingredients and get to work!

The boys really enjoy preparing all of the ingredients, so I recently purchased a set of kid-friendly knives that allow them to do the majority of the work all by themselves. Johnsonville Fully Cooked Breakfast Sausage links are great for kids to use because they’re already pre-cooked, so it cuts down on their prep work and limits their time over the stovetop. We usually use about six sausage links in our pizzas, and then we eat the rest of the package alongside our finished pizzas. Just heat the remaining sausage links in the microwave for 40 seconds – easy peasy!

Refrigerated pizza dough makes for a quick and easy crust option. We like to whip up a double batch of our favorite pizza dough recipe for dinner on Saturday night and then save half of it for breakfast pizzas later in the week.

Once the mini pie pans are lined with pizza dough, it’s time to start building the deep dish breakfast pizzas. The boys opted for Johnsonville turkey sausage, spinach, and Mexican cheese blend for our pizzas, but mixing and matching all kinds of different toppings is part of the fun!

Top with scrambled eggs (or just crack a raw egg inside the tin for a fried egg version!) and bake for 15-20 minutes or until the eggs are firm and the crust is cooked through.
