This was a breakfast experiment that turned out right! We were getting ready to leave for the weekend this one morning, and I had to use up the fresh pizza dough in my fridge that would have definitely gone bad in a day or two. I threw a little bit of everything in my fridge together and it resulted in this tasty breakfast pizza. I love it when that happens!
While making this pizza experiment, I added all of the toppings and then cracked eggs on the top. This was the part I was a little iffy about- I wasn’t sure if the eggs would bake well on the pizza. Well it turned out great and it tasted so good! Just like any pizza, you can be creative with the other toppings. Just add a little bit of everything you have in your fridge and a masterpiece will be born! Here are the winning ingredients that I used:
- Wheat pizza dough (I like to buy the pre-made, uncooked dough from the store)
- Tomato sauce
- Handful of mozzarella cheese
- 4 eggs
- Fresh ground pepper
- Toppings such as: chopped red and green peppers, chopped onion, chopped mushrooms, and diced tomatoes. I even added chopped chicken apple sausage and a little bit of bacon. It’s like an omelet on pizza!
Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees.
Roll out the pizza dough on a floured pizza pan or rectangle cookie sheet in my case (I was feeling a little square that morning).
Spread the tomato sauce on the dough and add a light sprinkle of cheese over the entire thing.
Add all of the pizza toppings.
Crack the eggs on the pizza last. I left a couple yolks whole and I broke the others and spread the yolk around on this pizza. I recommend breaking the yolks and here’s why: With the yolks spread out it cooked faster and it allowed for an egg in almost every bite.
Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the eggs are cooked on top. Sprinkle with pepper and basil. Slice it up and enjoy!
We enjoyed this meal with some freshly squeezed orange juice with oranges picked right off of our tree!
