Breakfast Pizza

    I love breakfast.  It is far and away my favorite meal of the day, and I would eat it all the time if I could.  So it's safe to say that weekend breakfasts are a big deal around here.  There's usually eggs and bacon and potatoes and pancakes or waffles.  Three weeks ago after the epic concert that was Jay Z and Justin Timberlake, we needed a breakfast that would soak up all of the--er--beverages that we consumed the night before.  I had some premade pizza crust that I thought we'd use the day before.  I didn't want it to go to waste, so we used it to make a breakfast pizza!  It was the most amazing hangover cure ever.

Make the dough using your favorite pizza dough recipe the night before.  My favorite recipe yields two pies, so I usually have one laying around anyway.  Or if you'd like, just purchase a store bought crust to make prep super easy.

Oh, did I mention that maple syrup is used as a sauce on this pizza? This was Kevin's idea.  When he first mentioned it, I thought he was kidding.  I mean, cheese and syrup aren't really a match made in heaven.  But then I remembered how much we really love McGriddles from McDonald's and realized he was on to something.  If you've never had a McGriddle, splurge on your next trip because they are totally worth the calories.

Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Breakfast Pizza
Makes one 12 inch pizza

Prepared or homemade pizza dough
2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 strips bacon
2 cups grated mozzarella

2 large eggs
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons sage, roughly chopped
1 shallot or small onion, diced (optional)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Fry bacon in sauté pan over medium-high heat until just crisp. Drain and cool; set aside.
 Drizzle the dough with maple syrup. Sprinkle dough with mozzarella, bacon, onion and sage. Crack both eggs over the top and season with salt and pepper.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes until crust is golden brown and eggs are just set.  Enjoy!
