Greek Breakfast Pizza

Breakfast-Pizza-7Now your family members won’t look at you funny when you’re eating pizza for breakfast, because this time you’ll be eating breakfast pizza. :)

Greek flavors infused with an Italian style pizza-pie celebrated at the breakfast table… why not!?

Breakfast-Pizza-8Using store-bought pastry dough helps to keep things simple for this recipe. Pastry dough instead of pizza dough creates a flaky, buttery crust for this pizza layered with breakfast favorites like seasoned eggs, hash browns and sausage. Loukaniko sausage is used in this recipe.  (Loukaniko is a tasty and tangy Greek sausage made with pork, flavored with orange peel, fennel seed and other herbs.) If you can’t find Loukaniko in your local grocery or specialty store use your favorite fully cooked sausage instead. Adding shredded zucchini, sliced tomatoes, and of course, feta cheese creates a well-balanced breakfast. ;)

This pizza is so tasty on it’s own but adding Sriracha or your favorite salsa to the top after baking is not considered a crime in my book.

RECIPE

1 sheet of store-bought pastry dough

1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon olive oil, divided

1 shallot, chopped fine

4 eggs

1 teaspoon dried oregano

Salt and Pepper

1 large or 2 small potatoes, shredded
