Skip the drive-thru and make McDonald's breakfast at home. Swap the hot cakes and sausage for breakfast pizza


  • 2 1/2 Cups Krusteaz Buttermilk Pancake Mix
  • 1/3 Cup Cold milk
  • 1/3 Cup Vegetable shortening
  • 1 Egg
  • 6 Scrambled eggs, prepared how you prefer
  • 1/2 Cup Grated or shredded cheese
  • Various toppings that you enjoy - bacon, ham, Canadian bacon, mushrooms, or other veggies


Preheat oven to 400°F

In medium bowl, stir together pancake mix and remaining ingredients with a fork until dough forms. Transfer dough to lightly floured surface.

Roll out dough and fold in half; turn one quarter turn and roll to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut with 5-6 inch biscuit cutter. Place biscuits side by side with edges touching onto ungreased baking sheet.

Bake 6-8 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven, yet leave on pan.

Flip biscuits over, making the bottom sides into the tops. Top each biscuit with scrambled eggs, a sprinkle of cheese and any other toppings you desire.

Place back in oven for approximately 2-4 minutes or until cheese has melted. This can happen quickly, so keep a close eye on them.

Remove from oven, transfer to plate and serve.

Breakfast Pizza Shopping Tip

What’s the difference between brown and white eggs? Besides color, nothing – different breeds of chicken account for the differences in color – quality and freshness are what really count.

Breakfast Pizza Cooking Tip

In addition to keeping foods like granola, yogurt, and fruit on hand, plan ahead for hectic weekdays by whipping up extra batches of waffles or pancakes and individually freezing them for easy morning meals.
