"I love breakfast casserole and was looking in the fridge for bread and breakfast meat to put in it. I pushed the pizza aside to realize I have no breakfast meats. Then it dawned on me... Can be assembled the night before and stored in the fridge until morning." — Prov31woman

The novelty of this recipe caught my eye and when we found ourselves w/leftover pizza, I decided to give this a whirl and give it a "face". I must preface this review by stressing our pizza was supreme pizza from a local pizzeria and was very flavorful, so plain cheese pizza would not have the same outcome. I followed the recipe to a "T", with the exception of skipping the onion since it was already on the pizza and using an 8X11 pan, as I don't own a 9X9. It was good, VERY rich (cheesy/buttery/greasy), but good. While I can't see myself making this again for the two of us, I could see making it if we had a party w/overnight guests w/whom we'd enjoyed some late night pizza for breakfast the next morning. THANKS for the recipe, Prov31woman!
This is amazing! I highly recommend using Topper's "Tall Boy" pizza as the crust is amazing.
So I used a chicken cordon blue pizza as the leftover pizza, it was amazing. Used cheddar cheese as that is what I had in the house. It was a bit greasy so I think the next time I will cut back on the butter. I normally don't eat leftovers but this might make me rethink recreating them.
This recipe was a great way to get my daughter to eat breakfast! We just used the local $5 pepperoni pizza and it turned out alright, but I'd bet it would taste even better with a high quality pizza. I would maybe cut out some of the butter, but overall my family really liked it.
