The convenience store chain says that it combines the convenience of eating leftover pizza for the first meal of the day with traditional breakfast foods.
The chain announced the creation Tuesday. The pizza has a biscuit crust topped with bacon, breakfast sausage, hickory-smoked ham, scrambled eggs, cheddar and mozzarella cheese and peppered cream gravy.
