3/4 teaspoon onion powder

1 cup sliced button mushrooms

Cooking Directions:

  1. For Basic Country Beef Breakfast Sausage: Combine ingredients in a large bowl. Heat large non stick skillet over medium high
  2. heat until hot. Add beef mixture. Add mushrooms and onion to beef mixture; cook 8 to 10 minutes, breaking into 1/2-inch crumbles.

  4. Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C).
  5. Unroll pizza dough on flat surface; pat or roll dough evenly to 14x10-inch rectangle, pinching together any tears, if necessary.

Slice dough into 8 pieces using serrated knife and careful sawing motion; place cut-side-up on greased baking sheet.

  7. While still warm, drizzle with melted jalapeño pepper jelly or cream cheese "frosting", if desired.
  8. For Cream Cheese "Frosting"; Combine 1/4 cup softened reduced-fat cream cheese and 1 tablespoon milk in small bowl, stirring
  9. until smooth. Drizzle over warmed beef rolls.
