Breakfast Pizza

   It's great to have friends that share recipes. One of the guys at work was telling me how his wife made him a breakfast pizza that turned out really good. What a great idea!
   I really like the concept of using sausage gravy as the sauce and crescent rolls for the dough. As far as the toppings, my hubby would call this Pork-a-palooza breakfast pizza - you've got it all - bacon, ham and sausage, topped with a little green pepper and onion. What a way to start the day!

Sausage, Bacon and Ham Breakfast Pizza
1 pkg. crescent rolls (to cover 9x13 inch pan)
1/2 pound bulk sausage    
4 to 6 slices bacon
1 thick slice of ham, diced about (2 oz.)  
1/4 cup flour
2 cups milk
salt and pepper to taste
2 T. butter
1/2 green pepper, diced
1/2 medium onion, diced
4 eggs, whisked with 2 T. milk
2 cups pizza cheese 

   Unroll crescent rolls and place on lightly greased 9x13 pan. Bake at 350° for three minutes. Remove from oven.

    Cook the sausage, but do not drain; stir in the flour and milk. Stir until thickened, season with salt and pepper to taste. Let cool slightly and then pour over pre-baked crescent rolls.

   Clean pan and cook bacon until almost crisp, mix with the diced ham. Melt the butter and cook the diced peppers and onion until tender and then add the whisked eggs add salt and pepper to taste. Cook until desired doneness. Add the bacon and ham to this and spoon over the sausage gravy.

   Cover the entire pizza with the cheese and bake at 350 ° for 10 to 13 minutes or until crust is lightly browned at the edges and the cheese is completely melted.
