Hello, hello! I’m almost done with the final book in the Hunger Games series. It was so difficult to put down last night, but I needed to get sleep at some point.
Book club meets this Sunday and we plan to discuss this final book, Mockingjay. As if it couldn’t get any better, the official Hunger Games trailer was released yesterday. It’s amazing!! Can’t believe I have to wait until March. Anyone else as excited as me?
Today’s recipe might possibly be in my top 5 favorite recipes I’ve ever made on my blog. No joke, it was that good. It’s pretty hard to go wrong when you’re making pizza for breakfast though.
Some mornings you just crave a savory breakfast. For times that you do, this recipe can be your go-to. I eliminated the bacon since I don’t eat much of it anymore. I could see how it would really enhance the flavor of this dish though. I also broke up the dough, making a mini version of the real thing.
Breakfast Pizza (courtesy of Smitten Kitchen)
- 1 package whole wheat dough
- Kosher salt
3 strips bacon
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
- 1 cup grated mozzarella
- 3 large eggs
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 1 tablespoon minced flat-leaf parsley
- 1 tablespoon minced chives
- 1 scallion, thinly sliced
- 1/2 shallot, minced
Generously dust the surface of a pizza peel or large inverted sheet pan with flour and place the stretched dough on it. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Sprinkle the dough with half of the Parmesan, mozzarella
Crack eggs over the top and season with salt and pepper.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, rotating after 5 minutes. When the crust is golden, the cheese is melted and the egg yolks are cooked, remove from oven. Sprinkle with seasonings (parsley, chives, shallots).
Let cool for 2 minutes, slice and serve immediately.
This recipe couldn’t have come out any better. The saltiness from the cheese combined with the soft and chewy dough made an incredible match.
Feel free to pull off a piece of dough to soak up the dippy eggs.
I immediately called my mom, as I was continuing to eat of course, exclaiming just how incredible this pizza was. So there you have it…a call-your-relative-this-breakfast-is-so-delicious-recipe!
This breakfast would work great for a Sunday morning since it is hearty, yet easy to put together. The only problem is that you may not want to share.
With that, I am off to (hopefully) finish up the rest of the book tonight! Can we say obsessed!?! Thanks for reading!
