Mamma-mia, who wants pizza for breakfast?
No I’m not talking morning afters from a greasy pizza box – this one is made fresh and hot from healthy ingredients that will wake up your sleepy taste buds like nothing else.
Believe me I know how easy it is to get stuck in a boring breakfast rut. Well here’s an easy way out of your morning routine – whip out your pizza pan and surprise everyone with this awesome breakfast pizza recipe.
I better mention right now that’s not a wheat flour crust you’re looking at – that’s actually a grated white-fleshed sweet potato with a little egg in there to bind it together, and a few simple seasonings for flavor. This potato pizza dough may seem a little crazy, but it’s really good and works like a charm.
So here’s how this breakfast pizza comes together. It’s actually a two-step process, but really simple…
The first thing you do is combine the ingredients and form the crust. Spread it out on a metal pizza pan or a baking sheet, whatever you’ve got handy. Then you slide just the crust into the oven (with nothing on it) for about 20 minutes or so — just enough to cook the potatoes through and stiffen up the pizza shell. Easy so far right?
Then you cook up a few things on the stovetop – these are your pizza’s toppings. When those are done after a few minutes, you load them on the pizza crust, crack some eggs, and slide the breakfast pizza back in your hot oven for a few to heat everything through and cook the eggs. That’s it. Get out your pizza cutter and breakfast is served.
What’s really great about this breakfast pizza too is you can get as creative as you want with it. Choose your own favorite veggie toppings – I happened to have some extra cherry tomatoes and broccoli florets in the fridge, so on they went.
Remember to grease your metal pan. I actually forgot to do this, but luckily mine came out okay after I ran my spatula under the crust to loosen it up a bit. If you forget, this little trick should work for you too.
Give this delicious paleo and gluten-free breakfast pizza a try sometime when you’ve got a little extra time. I think you’ll really like it!
