  • Yield: Makes 4 to 6 servings
  • Hands-on: 20 Minutes
  • Total: 2 Hours


  • 1 pound store-bought pizza dough
  • Vegetable cooking spray
  • 1/2 medium-size sweet onion, sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1/2 (8-oz.) package sliced baby portobello mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 teaspoon plain yellow cornmeal
  • Mornay Sauce
  • 1/2 (1-lb.) package ground pork sausage, cooked and crumbled
  • 6 large eggs, at room temperature


1. Place dough in a large bowl coated with cooking spray; lightly coat dough with cooking spray. Cover with plastic wrap, and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 1 hour or just until doubled in bulk.

2. Preheat oven to 425°. Sauté onion and next 2 ingredients in 1 Tbsp. hot oil in a large skillet 3 to 5 minutes or until onion and bell pepper are crisp-tender.

3. Roll dough to about 1/4-inch thickness (about 14 x 10 inches) on a lightly floured surface; cover with plastic wrap. Let stand 5 minutes.

4. Brush a 15- x 10-inch jelly-roll pan with remaining 1 Tbsp. oil; sprinkle with cornmeal. Transfer dough to pan. Spread Mornay Sauce over dough, and sprinkle with sausage and onion mixture. Break eggs over pizza.

5. Bake at 425° for 20 to 25 minutes or until eggs are cooked how you like them and crust is crisp.
