Chorizo Breakfast Flatbread

Chorizo Breakfast Flatbread

Ingredients and Directions


  1. Combine flour, salt, sugar and yeast in a large bowl. Mix in oil and warm water. Divide dough in half and form each into a ball. Let rest in bowls, covered with plastic wrap, for 30 minutes.

  2. Lightly oil two 16-inch pizza pans. Form crusts onto pans, bringing dough up on sides to hold egg mixture.

  3. In a large pan, brown sausage with onion. Pour off drippings; cool slightly.

  4. Heat oven to 375° F. Spread 1 cup tomato sauce onto each crust. Divide and sprinkle sausage mixture and drained potatoes over crusts.

  5. In a bowl, beat together eggs, milk and pepper.

  6. Bake for 28-30 minutes until crust is golden brown. Remove from oven. Sprinkle cheeses, spoon on cooked eggs and top with arugula and lime zest. Cut each pizza into 6 slices. Serve immediately.

    Note: Do not let uncooked egg mixture remain at room temperature for longer than one hour (including preparation and service time).

To ensure food safety, eggs should be cooked until both the yolk and the white are firm. Consuming raw or undercooked eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness, especially for those with certain medical conditions. For recipes that call for eggs that are raw or undercooked when the dish is served, use either pasteurized shell eggs that have been treated to destroy Salmonella, or use pasteurized egg products.
