Bottom of crust should be sealed and outside edge should be slightly raised. Spoon sausage over crust. Sprinkle with hash browns and top with cheddar cheese.

  • Bake in preheated oven until eggs are set, about 25 to 30 minutes.

This ended up being a fantastic recipe - once I gave up on the idea of trying to make it on a pizza pan! I laid out the crescent roll pieces on a pizza pan and could tell pretty quickly it wasn't going to be easy to make a circle that covered the pan. So I took the suggestion of using a 9x13 and coaxed the pieces into fitting with a little help from my rolling pin. I also took the suggestion of baking the crescent roll crust for a few minutes (6min?) before adding the toppings - VERY helpful! Other changes I made included using Morningstar Griller crumbles instead of sausage to make it vegetarian and using a Mexican 3 cheese blend to add a little kick. I didn't brown the crumbles because they seem to cook just fine even when added frozen, but I did the brown the hash browns, just for good measure. I still baked it for 25 min even though I had pre-baked the crust a little, and let it sit for a few minutes before serving. It was EXCELLENT!! Read More

this was a disaster. Egg oozed all over my oven. The potatoes were soggy. The cheese ended up greasy. DON'T make this as directed! Read More

My son and I just threw one of these yummy pizzas together. We used a 16 inch pizza pan and two packages of Crescent rolls for the crust. I added 2 oz. of canned diced Jalapenos a four ounce can of diced green chilies (Ortega is good.) Eight ounces of sliced fresh mushrooms 1/2 tsp. garlic powder and two cups of shredded pepper-jack cheese all added to an increased 7 egg and milk mixture. Also added an extra 1/2 lb. of ground pork sausage. This was beyond excellant. This one's a keeper for sure. Thanks Tammy. Read More

Tasted good but I used a pizza stone from Pampered Chef and the egg ran everywhere and dried up at the bottom of my oven. I recommend a pizza pan with sides for this. Read More

This was SO GOOD! Out of 5 stars I'd say it's about a 10! I used a quiche pan to avoid spills. One can of (reduced fat) crescent rolls completely covered the bottom and up the sides. (Don't forget to grease the pan first!) I pre-cooked the crust for 5 minutes but won't next time - it was a bit over cooked in the end. To lighten it up a little I used low fat sausage and egg substitute and no one knew the difference. I also lightly pre-cooked the hash browns and added some roasted red peppers -they were the perfect compliment! I will definitely be making this again and again and again! (My picky eater teenage son even went back for thirds! -but he did pick out the roasted peppers:) Thanks for a Terriffic recipe!!! mmmmmmmmm Read More

My son likes breakfast after his Wednesday night riding lessons but I was tired of the same ole thing. This was a big hit everyone liked it. I did make some changes. Used pizza dough a slightly precooked it in a 9x13. Used cubed hash browns and cooked half way adding garlic powder salt and pepper. Added minced onion to the sausage added two more eggs a little milk. Finally used 1/2 cheddar and 1/2 mozzarella. Served with hot sauce. Easily served my family of 6. Read More

This is a great recipe! Everyone loved it. I cooked the sausage the night before so I the morning I just toss it together in a matter of minutes. Just make sure your pan has an edge. Mine did not and I had a mess. Read More

Awesome not to mention absolutely adorable! The kids really got a kick out of this. My daughter pretty much made this on her own. I don't have a pizza pan (just a stone) so I used my corningware quiche pan & it worked out great! We also subbed bacon for the sausage because that's what the kids prefer. Good recipe Tammy thanks!

The crescent roll crust makes this pizza. I have made this pizza several times including entertaining for a brunch. What a hit! I always omit the hash browns and parmesan and add some crumbled cooked bacon and it is wonderful. I make homemade sausage gravy for the "pizza sauce" as another review suggested. Also pre-baking the crust for 5-7 minutes helps the crust to get done and not be gooey once the toppings have been added. For some cooks who commented the eggs ran everywhere: Scramble the eggs first in a skillet and then add them to the pizza. You'll be a lot more pleased with this! Read More
