I was thinking the other day (scary, I know). But what was weighing heavily on my mind was that I just don’t eat enough eggs. (Yes, my thoughts are generally food-related.) Eggs are delicious and I tend to forget about them. I usually only use them for random baking projects, or if I’m feeling froggy on a Sunday morning, I’ll whip up some omelets.
So as images of unhatched poultry danced through my head, I had a moment of clarity. You see, this I know to be true:
I. Love. Pizza.
Breakfast pizza. I realize I’m not the first person to develop this concept, and I’ve read many a blog post about it, but for some reason I never got around to making it. I know that somewhere in my gigantic brain (uh, why else would I have such a large head?) this little nugget of an idea was implanted and unearthed itself at this very moment. And it was good. The thought, that is. Because the pizza… well the pizza was great.
1/3 cup diced green pepper
1/3 cup diced onion
6 slices Canadian bacon, diced
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
Directions: Prepare your pizza dough and preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cook the crust (plain) for about 8 minutes, then remove and raise temperature to 500. Meanwhile, in a large sauté pan, cook the onion, peppers and bacon until veggies are soft. Spoon toppings over crust, then add mozzarella and crack 6 eggs right on top of the cheese. Cook pizza for another 8-10 minutes, watching carefully as to keep the egg yolks slightly runny.
Yowza. Heaven. I did overcook the eggs a little so they weren’t really runny, but still delicious nonetheless. And all the more reason to try, try again… and again… and again. Brandon almost had to fight me for a slice. But luckily I was in a bit of a breakfast pizza-induced haze and let him have some. Oh that marital compromise.
Oh and hey… what’s that? Oh just a gratuitous puppy shot. Enjoy <3
