Directions

  1. HEAT oven to 450°F. COAT large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. COOK sausage over medium heat, breaking into crumbles, until browned and cooked through. POUR OFF drippings; return to heat.

  2. POUR eggs over sausage in skillet. As eggs begin to set, GENTLY PULL the eggs across the pan with an inverted turner, forming large soft curds. CONTINUE cooking—pulling, lifting and folding eggs—until thickened and some visible liquid egg remains. Do not stir constantly. Do not overcook.

  3. SPREAD 2 Tbsp. pizza sauce on each pita bread; place on baking sheet(s). TOP with eggs and cheese, dividing evenly. BAKE in 450°F oven until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes.
