Fresh Pizza for Breakfast

I've always plan what's for breakfast before I go to bed. Seriously, coz we Malaysian,always had the same breakfast alll over again.. not that the regulars are not good, (they (nasi lemak, roti canai, lontong, etc) are marvelous, in their own way), but sometimes we just need a change a little bit. Especially when your husband or family members do not fancy heavy breakfast (if you know what I meant). 

so, here is one easy breakfast recipe, for you...

Although it is certainly true many people enjoy a cold slice of leftover pizza for breakfast, many others make pizza fresh specifically for that very first meal of the day. Breakfast pizzas can be a delicious, healthy, and filling alternative to a variety of other typical and often boring breakfast foods. You can also make pizzas for brunch and they can be an especially welcome treat in comparison to the usual breakfast and lunch fare.

You have several choices for making crusts for breakfast pizzas and are not limited to using ordinary pizza dough, although it too can be used as well. Combine a package of shredded hash browns with an egg and press the mixture evenly into the bottom and up the sides of a baking pan for a tasty crust. Alternatively, you can use breakfast rolls or a variety of prepackaged crusts and rolls.

The possibilities for delicious topping combinations are just about endless when it comes to making a breakfast pizza. Use cooked and crumbled beef, bacon, or sausage as well as cooked and chopped ham or turkey. Chopped green, white, or yellow onions along with green, orange, red, or yellow bell peppers will add flavor and texture to your pizza. You can also use other vegetables such as broccoli and celery as well as mushrooms, olives, and tomatoes.

Of course you will want to experiment with various seasonings to add more flavor and interest to your breakfast pizza. Consider using the basics like salt, pepper, and garlic powder along with others such as basil, oregano, and thyme depending on the toppings you have chosen.

Breakfast pizzas are often hearty enough all on their own, but there are several side dishes you can serve along with them for a multicourse meal. Choose foods such as bagels, biscuits, English muffins, sweet rolls, or toast. You can also make pancakes or waffles as well as fresh fruit including bananas, an assortment of melons, oranges, and strawberries.

How to Make It

Place the pre-baked pizza crust on a baking sheet then scatter the thinly sliced baby spinach leaves on top. Then drizzle the olive oil on top.

Evenly distribute the thinly sliced prosciutto, the grated parmesan cheese, and the thinly sliced garlic on top of the spinach leaves.

For each quarter section of the pizza make a well down in the toppings. Crack 1 egg into each well.

Bake the pizza for about 12 minutes or until the spinach leaves are wilted and the eggs look white, fluffy, and fully cooked.

Sprinkle salt and black pepper to taste on the breakfast spinach pizza, cut into 4 slices and serve.
Serves 2 to 4.
