Breakfast Pizza

The morning of Thanksgiving, we love to make this breakfast pizza! It’s filling and a great brunch type meal to keep you full until the big feast later. You can make it any time of the year though of course. I like to use a pre-made dough from Trader Joes, but check out the original recipe from Smitten Kitchen here to see how to make your own pizza dough.

Ingredients:

6 strips bacon
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
2 cups grated mozzarella
6 large eggs

Freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons minced flat-leaf parsley
2 tablespoons minced chives
2 scallions, thinly sliced
1 shallot, minced

Preheat the oven to 500 degrees 30 minutes before you are ready to bake the pizza.

Prepare the dough and toppings: Fry the bacon in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat until crisp. Cool on a paper-towel-lined plate; roughly chop.

Generously dust the surface of a pizza peel or large inverted sheet pan with flour and place the stretched dough on it. Sprinkle the dough with half of the Parmesan, mozzarella and bacon. Crack 3 eggs over the top and season with salt and pepper.

Bake the pizza: Shake the pizza peel slightly to make sure the dough is not sticking. Carefully lift any sections that are sticking and sprinkle a bit more flour underneath, then slide the pizza directly onto the baking stone in one quick forward-and-back motion. 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, use the peel to transfer the pizza to a cutting board. Sprinkle half of the parsley, chives, scallions and shallot on top, cook for another 5 minutes.. Prepare the second pizza in the same way.
