Chorizo Sausage Breakfast Pizza

  • Difficulty: moderate

Ingredients

  • 1 cup warm water (105-110 degrees)
  • 1 tbsp instant yeast
  • 1 tbsp Truvia baking blend
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 11oz pork chorizo
  • 16oz turkey sausage
  • 1 cup reduced fat colby jack shredded cheese
  • 6 tbsp egg substitute
  • 1 cup baby spinach, coarsely chopped

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Brown the chorizo and sausage together on the stovetop over medium heat and drain. Set aside.
  3. Proof the yeast: add warm water, yeast, and Truvia baking blend to a large mixing bowl. Stir well. Let rest for about 5 minutes, until surface of water is foamy.
  4. Mix the dough: stir olive oil into water/yeast mixture. Then add flour and salt. Mix well. Dough will be slightly sticky. (Tip, add some Italian style seasonings to the dough for extra yum!)
  5. Knead the dough: dust a flat surface dusted with flour (like a cutting board). Transfer dough to floured surface and press top in repeatedly, folding dough over on itself, until the dough is a smooth, slightly sticky ball (maybe 2-3 minutes).
  6. Spray a couple pizza pans (or a large cookie sheet) with nonstick cooking spray and lightly dust with garlic salt. Then spread dough in pan. Prick dough all over with a fork.
  7. Pre-bake dough for about 5 minutes.
  8. Remove from oven and add toppings: about half the cheese, then half the sausage mixture (save the other half for another pizza!), pour egg substitute over, add the rest of the cheese, and sprinkle spinach on top.
  9. Bake for another 5-7 minutes. Dough is done when it turns lightly golden brown.
  10. Remove from oven and allow to cool a few minutes before slicing and serving.
