Pizza for Breakfast

Came across this yummy Breakfast Pizza recipe. Gotta try this! Yum!

YIELD: 4 Servings
1 pizza crust (recipe here: http://realfoodbydad.com/homemade-bbq-chicken-pizza-2/ )
2 3 oz. sausage links, casing removed, crumbled and browned
2 cups diced hash browns, cooked
1 cup cheddar cheese
1/2 cup chunky salsa, drained
4 eggs

Preparation: Heat oven to 500 degrees F. Place pizza stone on lower middle rack. Lightly grease a sheet of parchment paper with olive oil. Transfer ball of dough to parchment. Stretch out dough by hand as much as possible, then lightly brush with olive oil, cover with another piece of parchment. Use a rolling pin and work from the middle of the dough outward to flatten dough to ¼ inch thickness. Peel off top parchment paper.

Note: Dough can be made ahead of time and refrigerated for up to three days.

Assembly: Sprinkle down browned sausage, hash browns, cheddar cheese and salsa. Break eggs on top of pizza. Slide the pizza (with the parchment underneath) on to the hot pizza stone. Bake for 3-5 minutes until pizza crust starts to turn golden. Rotate the pizza once and remove parchment, continue to bake for another 3 minutes or until eggs are cooked but still runny. Remove from oven.
