Celebrate National Hot Breakfast Month with this delicious breakfast pizza with Canadian bacon, breakfast sausage & arugula.
Did you know that February is National Hot Breakfast Month? Yep. Think about all those how great it is to have a fresh, hot breakfast on the weekend. It’s the best. But, I know we don’t always have the time to get a hot breakfast on the table everyday. I mean, our lives are super busy. Don’t worry though. Jones Dairy Farm wants to remind you that breakfast foods aren’t just for breakfast. They can be enjoyed anytime of the day, so this February, we’re celebrating with Brinner – for those of you that don’t know, that’s breakfast for dinner.
Breakfast for dinner was always a favorite of mine growing up. My mom would make something special out of it when my dad was out of town or working late, and we thought it was the coolest. Today, I like to make breakfast for dinner when Marc is home because breakfast is his favorite, and I’m never quite functioning at my best in the morning. So breakfast for dinner is the perfect compromise for us.
Plus, it gives me a chance to try recipes that I wouldn’t necessarily be in the mood for in the morning – like this awesome breakfast pizza. It was inspired by the pizzas that we ate while we were in France. So many of them were topped with egg and fresh arugula, and they were seriously good.
When I decided to make a breakfast pizza, I immediately knew I wanted to incorporate a variation of breakfast meats, but I still wanted to keep things simple. That’s why I stuck to 5 basic toppings, including the cheese. Jones Dairy Farm’s Pork Sausage Breakfast Roll and Canadian bacon were perfect to pair with crisp arugula and melty mozzarella.
Of course, I didn’t want this meal to take all day to make, so I used store-bought pizza dough and my recipe for quick & easy homemade pizza sauce, but you could easily use your favorite recipe or brands of either. Do what works for you. This is supposed to be fun. And, it definitely was. These pizzas turned out beautifully and the flavor was beyond what I imagined.

- Preheat oven to 450˚F.
- In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook the sausage, breaking up the meat as it browns. Cook until golden brown. Remove from heat and drain any excess fat.
- On a parchment lined cookie sheet, stretch the pizza dough to about 1/4-inch thick.
- In the following order, top the pizza: pizza sauce, Canadian bacon, mozzarella cheese, cooked sausage, arugula leaves.
- Crack each egg onto the pizza, keeping the yolk intact and allowing the whites to spread slightly.
- Bake the pizzas for 10 – 15 minutes or until crusts are browned and the egg whites have set. Remove pizza sooner for runny yolks.
- Allow pizza to cool for 2 -3 minutes and garnish with remaining arugula before slicing.
