Make Ahead, Easy Meat Lover’s Breakfast Pizza for a Crowd

Who doesn’t love pizza for breakfast?  And this delicious Meat Lovers Breakfast Pizza really delivers.  It can be made several hours in advance and easily re-heated in a 200 degree oven, making a great morning for everyone!

This is a DELICIOUS breakfast treat.  The crust is made from crescent roll dough and this pizza is loaded with all your favorite breakfast foods including bacon, sausage, hash browns and cheese. Add pepperoni and a sprinkling of fresh basil and you have a real winner!  Even better, it’s EASY and can be made in advance in the same pan for cooking and serving!

This, along with Breakfast Tacos, is the hands-down winning teen answer to the question, ‘what would you like for breakfast?’  And no one will know how easy it was!  (Fair warning: it will become one of YOUR favorites too.)

Quantities & Serving Sizes

This recipe is sized for a half pan baking sheet (13” x 19”). This is the standard size large baking pan available in most church kitchens (ours has 18 of them!).   If you cut the pizza into 3 inch x 3 inch squares, you will have 4 x 6 rows, creating 24 slices, like this.

If you’re serving young women or women, most guests will only take 1 piece, so plan on this serving 24 gals.   If you are serving young men or men, figure 2 per person, so plan on this serving 12 – 15. For a mixed crowd, I’d figure it serving 20 people as long as you have several other items, such as this wonderful fruit salad with an orange vanilla bean dressing (heavenly!) and possibly some monkey bread. You can control portions by placing the pizza pans at the end of the serving table with a server handing out the budgeted quantity.  If you have multiple tables, then just slide them apart about 2 feet and put the servers in-between the tables length-wise.  Like this.

You can make all of one kind or mix and match for a fabulous pizza buffet.  Come visit often!  I’ll be adding more soon.  I promise.
