pizza for breakfast

Today is a celebration for Stephen’s feature movie premier in SXSW Festival, which you can check out here: Turkey Bowl

Unfortunately, he couldn’t make it to Texas for the festival, so I decided to make him an Everything’s Bigger in Texas Breakfast Pizza! Courtesy of my brand new cookbook purchases (which were a steal on amazon.com, two books for only $36.00). In Better Home and Garden cookbook, I found a breakfast pizza recipe and slightly modified it to fit our ingredients.

Ingredients:

1 16-oz package of frozen pizza dough (I used one tube of biscuits)
1 cup of sliced red, green, yellow peppers, and cucumbers
1 cup of sliced mushrooms (I didn’t have any)
1 tbs vegetable oil
8 eggs (I only used 5 since my tube of biscuits was small)
1/2 cup of milk
1 1/2 cups of shredded cheese (I used medium cheddar)
2 slices of crumbled bacon (I used diced ham and turkey)

Directions:

1. Roll dough into a pizza form and bake according to directions on package (approx. 10-12 minutes on 350 degrees)
2. Meanwhile, in a skillet, cook vegetables and meat until vegetables are tender)
3. In a separate bowl, combine eggs and milk. Pour mixture into a skillet and cook over medium heat. Cook eggs without stirring, lift up edges with a large spatula to allow egg mixture to flow underneath the cooked egg. Cook until eggs are not runny
4. Remove dough from oven. Sprinkle half of the cheese on the crust. Place eggs on top of the cheese. Sprinkle remaining cheese onto the eggs and add the fresh vegetables. Bake for another 3-5 minutes

Using one tube of biscuits and 5 eggs, this pizza was more than enough for two people. This pizza is enough to serve 3 people, 2 slices each! The only thing this recipe is missing is some spice, which can be easily fixed with a cheddar/pepper jack cheese combo or cajun seasoning!
