- Air Fryer

- Butter. What is breakfast without butter?!
- Breakfast sausage. I always use Jimmy Dean.
- Whole Milk.
- Shredded Mozzarella.

- Chives or scallions, for topping.
How to make Mini Breakfast Pizzas in the Air Fryer
Making this air fryer mini breakfast pizza recipe is so easy – start out by making scrambled eggs, then set aside.
Then get started on the sausage gravy – I promise that it is not hard and is totally worth it for homemade gravy. The store-bought stuff never compares!
Add butter to a statue pan over medium heat. Once butter is melted, add the ground sausage and cook until it is no longer pink, breaking into crumbles as you go. Once the sausage is cooked, add your flour and mix it in evenly with the sausage.
Reduce the heat to medium-low and add the milk. Mix it all together and cook until the gravy has thickened. Add salt and pepper to taste. Remove from the heat and set aside.
Take your pre-formed biscuit dough and roll it out onto a floured surface. Roll them into 4-inch rounds, dusting with flour to keep from sticking.
Preheat your air fryer to 350, spray the basket with cooking spray, and get to assembling your mini pizzas.
Spread 3-4 tbsp of sausage gravy on biscuit dough. Crumble scrambled eggs over top of the gravy. Sprinkle on mozzarella and air fry these for only 7 minutes! Repeat with all biscuits, cooking only 2 at a time. Remove from the air fryer and top with scallions.
Can I make air fryer mini breakfast pizzas in the oven?
Air fryer mini breakfast pizzas can be cooked in the oven. You do not need the air fryer or ninja foodie. Preheat oven to 375 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray. Assemble all mini pizzas on the baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly. Let sit 2-3 minutes and then garnish with chives or scallions.
Tips and Tricks
- Although it is tempting to cover the biscuit in your delicious sausage gravy, less is more in this instance. You do not want to overpower the rest of the ingredients, but rather create a medley of flavors.
- Assembling the pizzas when they’re in the air fryer basket will save on clean-up, but be careful of a preheated air fryer!
- These breakfast pizzas would be just as delicious with a crescent dough or english muffin dough, or even a bagel!

Cooked mini pizzas can be frozen in a freezer-safe container for up to 3 months. To reheat, preheat the oven to 350. Place frozen pizzas on a prepared baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes.
