Breakfast Pizza

It was 11am Sunday morning and I had moves to make. I woke up beaming with excitement because I couldn’t wait to go to the grocery store– grocery stores just make me happy. I also hadn’t been grocery shopping in 3 weeks so this was gonna be a big shop.

Unfortunately Texas Boy missed the trip because I couldn’t get his hung over ass out of bed. Feeling all sorry for him and all I figured why not multi-task and get my groceries, super bowl supplies, and breakfast for him and I.

I saw breakfast pizza at whole foods last month and had to get a slice– it was delicious. They only serve it until 9am and on the weekends I always miss it except for that one random time when I found it. I know I had to create my own version!

Breakfast Pizza

ingredients: 

  • 1 package of boboli thin pizza crust
  • 1 16oz carton of egg beaters
  • 1 red pepper sliced into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1/2 red onion sliced into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 cup of reduced fat Mexican blend cheese

directions:

Slice the pepper and the onion into 1/2 inch pieces. You can prepare the veggies however you prefer. I like thin strips of vegetables throughout my pizza. Saute the veggies in 1 tbsp of olive oil on medium to high heat until the veggies are tender and crispy.

While the veggies are cooking start preparing the pizza crust. I brushed some olive oil on both sides of the crust then threw it on the grill to get both sides charred and crispy. Chicagoan’s have been fortunate enough to have a mild winter so far so I’ve been utilizing my grill. I love grilling in the winter, the aroma reminds me of summer! If you don’t have a grill, brush both sides of the crust with olive oil and bake in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes flipping it half way.

In another skillet (didn’t mean to make this so complicated) start cooking the eggs. For this pizza scrambled eggs work best. Scramble the eggs by gently stirring the egg mixture until the eggs curdle and start to scramble together. Add 1/2 cup of cheese to the eggs so it melts together.

Assemble the pizza however you want. I started by layering the veggies, then the egg mixture, then topped it with the remaining 1/2 cup of cheese.

Bake the pizza in a 350 degree oven for 5-7 minutes or until the cheese is melted.

I don’t mean to brag but I was really impressed with myself, Texas boy was too. Who knew?!

served with hash browns on the side

I hope Texas Boy doesn’t expect this kind of treatment every time he’s hungover!

 Have a great day!
