Mexican Breakfast Pizza

A pizza crust can be a blank canvas for whatever dish you want to “paint” onto it. This Mexican breakfast pizza is a great example. We took a store-bought thin crush crust and just topped it with some of our favorite breakfast ingredients. It made for the perfect, very quick-to-make breakfast-for-dinner meal.

Serve this Mexican breakfast pizza with a big ole bottle of Cholula hot sauce on the table. Nothing goes better with breakfast than a few good shakes of hot sauce. Cholula is one of my favorites. It’s not too spicy and it has a fantastic pepper flavor.

For dinner, serve up some of my tortilla pizzas.
