Pizza for Breakfast! {An Eggland’s Best Giveaway} closed

Breakfast Pizza Recipe from @KatrinasKitchen

Pizza for breakfast. You will get hugs. You will get kisses. You will get to bask in the title Best Mom Ever (for about 10 minutes). It’s Back-to-School in our house and my son is NOT a morning person- he just doesn’t have an appetite for breakfast until a few hours after he wakes up. Enter pizza. Win!

The best part about pizza for breakfast is that most of it can be made the night before. Take about 3 minutes to scramble your eggs in the morning, pile it all on top of your crust, and throw it in the oven for 10 minutes. Win!

Another win? Eggland’s Best eggs. Until I really looked into the nutritional information of EB eggs I just thought they were pretty eggs with a cute red stamp. (They are so much more than eye candy!) And the EB Hard Cooked and Peeled eggs are amazing. Amazing. Confession: I hate boiling eggs and I’m not good at it. I’m a baker. I break eggs open. That’s what I do. I’ve accepted this. Thankfully I can now rest easy whenever I’m asked to bring the deviled eggs. {I would say Win! again but you’re already tired of reading that, aren’t you?}

Breakfast Pizza Recipe from @KatrinasKitchen

For my breakfast pizza I used leftover (untopped) pizza shells from the night before. I topped one with turkey sausage, hash browned potatoes, cheese, scrambled eggs, and reduced sodium Alfredo sauce. White pepper gravy would be nice also. For the second I swapped the turkey sausage for grilled peppers and onions. I had intended to add a few scallions as well…but it was morning and I hadn’t had my coffee yet.

Yield: 2 medium size crusts

Prep Time: 2 hours

Cook Time: 10-15 minutes

Total Time: 2 hours, 15 minutes

The best pizza crust recipe from Test Kitchen

Ingredients:

  • 1 3/4 cups water, divided
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons dry active yeast (1 envelope)
  • Pinch of sugar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus extra for brushing dough
  • 4 cups bread flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons table salt
  • vegetable oil (or cooking spray), for oiling bowl
  • semolina or cornmeal, for dusting baking sheet

Directions:

  1. Dissolve 1 packet of dry active yeast into ¼ cup warm water with a pinch of sugar until foamy.
  2. Meanwhile pulse (or mix with paddle attachment in your mixer) flour, salt and remaining 1½ cups water to combine. If using a mixer switch to the dough hook. Add yeast mixture until dough forms a rough ball. Let dough rest in the bowl for 2 minutes.
  3. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead by hand for 5 minutes until a smooth round ball forms.
  4. Transfer to an oiled bowl, covered with a damp cloth until doubled (1 to 1½ hours).
  5. Preheat oven to 400 F with your pizza stone in the oven.
  6. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and divide into 2 pizzas. Using hands stretch your dough to roughly 12 inch pizzas.
  7. Transfer to a baking stone that has been lightly dusted with cornmeal or semolina. Brush dough lightly with olive oil before topping.
  8. Add desired toppings or bake dough as is to be used later.
  9. Reduce heat to 350 F and bake for 10-15 minutes (depending on toppings).

Notes:

  • This recipe can also make 4 individual pizzas, bake for 8-10 minutes.
