Homemade Casey's Breakfast Pizza

I married a man with a thing for Casey's Breakfast Pizza.  I hate to admit it, but the stuff actually is pretty good. 

Last weekend he decided that he would make his own breakfast pizza at home and it was a triumphant success. 

So, so, so good.

pizza crust (see recipe below)
1 small can Frito's cheese dip
1 lb sausage
6 eggs
2 C shredded mozzarella cheese

- Preheat oven to 350
- Prepare crust.
- Brown sausage and drain fat.
- Scramble and cook eggs.
- Assemble pizza: Spread 1/2 the Frito cheese dip on the pizza crust.  Spread the cooked sausage and eggs on top of the cheese.  Cover with the shredded cheese.
- Bake for 10 minutes.
- Enjoy the awesome.

My pizza crust recipe:
3 cups flour (can use 1c whole wheat)
1 package fast-acting yeast
1 cup very warm water
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt

-In a large bowl combine 1c flour and the yeast. Add the water and stir.
-Add the oil, sugar, salt and remaining flour, blending it until it forms a ball. (You may need to add more water, oil or flour depending on the texture and humidity in the air. It should moist but not sticky.)
-Turn it out on a lightly floured surface and knead 8 - 10 times, form it into a ball. 
- Roll dough into disc and let rise in warm space.
