Ingredients

• 2 tablespoons olive oil • 1 (13.8 ounce) can prepared pizza crust or homemade pizza dough • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil • 3 tablespoons milk • 6 eggs • salt, to taste • pepper, to taste • 1/2 pound sausage, cooked and drained • 1/4 cup bacon cooked and chopped • 3 green onions, sliced and divided • 1/4 cup red bell pepper, finely chopped • 8 ounces pepper jack cheese, shredded • 2 ounces extra-sharp cheddar cheese, shredded • parsley, optional for garnishing,
