You can blame it all on Market Day because that is where my love affair with Breakfast Pizzas began. That is where I developed a craving for them.
And when we stopped ordering from Market Day I was bereft. I was downtrodden.
I was going through Breakfast Pizza withdrawal and it wasn’t pretty.
And then the little old light bulb went on in my cranium. I knew that I had to find another source, another conduit. I needed Breakfast Pizza. And so I decided that if Market Day can make them then so can I!
(Cue triumphant music)
And so here is a full color, picture packed tutorial for making Breakfast Pizza. And you don’t even have to eat it in the morning.
Start by turning on the oven to 450F. If you have a pizza baking stone you can heat it up in the oven at this time. Just let the oven get nice and scorching hot while you get everything ready.
First there is a package of breakfast sausage. I realized that I had forgotten to take a picture of it until after I had it browning. Oops. You can use regular breakfast sausage or if you want to add some spice to your life then use the hot sausage.
Then there are the eggs. I have four eggs on the plate but I actually used six eggs. Six eggs, scrambled, are enough for two pizzas. I will explain in a minute. And just as an aside, I love brown eggs. They just make me happy. Not as happy as the blue and green eggs that my sis-in-laws chickens produce. Now those are gorgeous.
Now it is time to scramble the eggs. Just remember that when you are scrambling the eggs that you treat them gently, as Julia Child would, and don’t add any liquid to them. They need to be soft but dry when you are done with them.
Then it is time to roll out the pizza dough. I will tell you that I use different pizza doughs for this recipe. If you want to buy already prepared dough then that is hunky dory with me. In this instance I was using some olive oil bread dough that I had in the frig. The recipe is from Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day, which is the most amazing book.
So roll out your dough and put it on your pizza peel that you have dusted with corn meal or flour so that the dough doesn’t stick.
the train came off of my Breakfast Pizza track……
As is my usual practice when I am making any kind of pizza, after the addition of ingredients to the dough I shake the pizza peel back and forth to make sure that the dough moves easily around because I want to be able to slide it onto the pizza stone that is heating in the oven.
And then I realized that…..I hadn’t put any cornmeal on the peel before putting down the dough.
What you can’t see is that I forgot to spray the sheet with non-stick spray before making the transfer.
Double dog turds!
I lifted up the edges of the pizza and sprayed under it.
Sprinkle the top of the pizza with half of the shredded cheese. I forgot to take a picture of that step because I was so mad about not spraying the pan. Some days are like that.
This recipe actually make two pizzas worth so just assemble the second one while the first one is cooking. Pizza, pizza everywhere!
