breakfast pizza


Yesterday morning, I put some pizza dough in a bowl, covered it with cling film and let it go about it’s yeasty business. By nightfall, the dough had risen and was at it’s peak, however, due to unforeseen circumstances, my plans to make a pizza dinner that night fell through. So when I woke up this morning, I looked into the bowl of risen dough and found my inspiration. Breakfast pizza! Everyone likes a slice of re-heated pizza in the morning once in a while, so why not go the extra distance and create one from scratch with a breakfast twist.

And oh, what a breakfast it was! Savory and rich and melty and crisp. It was the most perfect breakfast for a rainy Saturday morning and I can’t wait to try a new breakfast pizza variation soon. With a breakfast like this to look forward to, there is no need to sleep in.

    Oh, yum yum! That looks so tasty – what genius! And you can come up with so many great variations – bulk sausage, summer sausage, ham, Canadian bacon…different cheese, different veggies. Did you use the pizza dough from Trader Joes?

    A few years ago I was totally addicted to fruit pizza: slice thinly some peaches, pears, plums, bananas (whatever you like, I even used tinned pineapple), put them in a bowl; add few drops of freshly squeezed orange juice and orange zest. Spread the fruit on your pizza dough, sprinkle with a mixture of demerara sugar and crushed nuts (the choice is yours). Sometimes I would put a pinch of cinnamon or cardamom (depending what fruit I was using) in the sugar/nuts mix! Divine!

    glad you loved the chocolate toasts, hag! and this pizza is pretty much perfect.
