If you need a review of Casey’s breakfast pizza – here you go – it’s awesome!!! All of their pizza is so good! You might not expect it from a little gas station – but their specialty is donuts and pizza. Yum! All homemade! (That photo is an authentic slice from Marion, Iowa!)
Did you know that 1/3 of the nation’s pork is grown in Iowa? I know – I live in Cincinnati now – and we call ourselves “Porkopolis” – but who we kiddin? That’s Iowa baby!!! Corn, beans and pigs. It’s how we do!
What’s on Casey’s Breakfast Pizza?
I love that their pizzas have bacon or pork – it’s such a great source of protein! When you’re cooking bacon for this – you should undercook it a touch because it’s going to bake and cook a little more. So I would avoid making it crispy.
How to make breakfast pizza with eggs?
This recipe for breakfast pizza is super easy and doesn’t take much time. First, I use a premade crust – it’s just too easy not to – and this recipe is about the toppings! Then you prep your toppings: scrambled eggs, bacon and sausage. (I bake my scrambled eggs!). After that – put them together. You can use either sausage gravy or cheese sauce for your “pizza sauce” – I tried both and they’re both delicious. I made a bacon breakfast pizza with gravy and then a sausage breakfast pizza with cheese sauce! After your pizzas are topped, you just bake them until the cheese melts!
A lot of folks question – when is pork done?! If you’re cooking ground pork or sausage – it should be 160 degrees – but most other cuts are done at 145 degrees! Here’s an easy to check chart for cooking temps for pork!
This is my sausage and scrambled egg breakfast pizza! Looks good – right? My bestie sent me the photo of the Casey’s pizza to make sure mine looked just right – I think I did a pretty good job!
And while this recipe is born in Iowa, I’ve been to pork farms here in Ohio! I love going for visits – I learned so much from Uncle Squeals and I get to see piglets. Come on – that’s too cute!
Can I make breakfast pizza the night before?
If you’re looking for other delicious breakfast recipes -you have to check out my Breakfast Gumbo – the idea came from a gas station in Alabama! I also just made a bacon and sausage French toast bake – omg – what a revolution that was – it’s amazing!!! I can’t believe I waited so long to try it! Or if you want something more simple – there’s a Farmhouse Breakfast Casserole – it’s my baked eggs with a bunch of yummy stuff added to it.
