Please bear with me as this is my first ever Instructable! I won't go into much detail in the preparation of ingredients, consider it more like a guide of how to put one of these pizzas together. That is kind of how I do things when I cook anyway, I do some research and mash up different recipes to come out with something of my own. This pizza came about after brainstorming with some co-workers as well as my love for my original hometown Chicago style deep dish. I had never seen one made as a breakfast pizza...so here it goes!

Step 1: "Ingredients"

Ok, this is where some may consider this a little vague. But to be honest I don't want to step on anyone's toes and publish any recipes I used as inspiration so get creative here!

Prior to making the pizza, I had a debate about pre-cooking things. When I make a regular Chicago style I never cook the ingredients due to the long bake time. Well, I should have listened to the breakfast pizza connoisseur I was dealing with because my first pizza came out like he said it would...breakfast soup. I quickly made another one, and pre-cooked ingredients are nearly a must.


Deep Dish Pizza Dough - use your favorite, I went with a flaky laminated dough that has butter in between the layers
Cheese Blend - I used mozzarella and cheddar, freshly shredded
Bacon - I live in Iowa now so we have some good options
Breakfast Sausage - again, the Iowa thing comes in to play here...every small town has their own meat locker
Sausage Gravy - did you think I was going to put tomato sauce on this thing?!
Pre-heated Oven - 425 to 450 degrees, and I consider this an ingredient because you cannot cook this thing in an oven that is not thoroughly heated!

Looks good. That'd keep you going throughout the day.
