Sunny Side Up Breakfast Pizza
Most of the breakfast pizza recipes I’ve tried have been rather bland. It’s your typical scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese, and bacon bits every time. I wanted something a little bit different, so I tried out a new recipe and I couldn’t be more pleased with the results! Fresh eggs, goat cheese, and peppered bacon slices, are just a few of the ingredients that make up this delicious pie!
(Dough will make two medium pizzas so be sure to double up the measurements for toppings if making two pizzas. If not you can freeze the other half of dough for another night!)
Ingredients for crust:
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 ¼ cup warm water
3 tsp active dry yeast (one packet)
1 ½ tsp honey
3 ½ tsp olive oil
1 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp dried basil
4 strips of peppered bacon, cut in half and cooked
¼ cup grape tomatoes, halved
2-3 stalks of green onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
¼ cup goat cheese
¼ cup shredded mozzarella
Salt and pepper to taste
Recipe slightly adapted from Smitten Kitchen
(1.) In a large bowl, stir together water, yeast, honey, and 1 ½ tsp olive oil. Let sit for 10 minutes or until foamy. (2.) Slowly stir in 2 ½ cups of flour, garlic salt, and basil. Once dough comes together, work in additional flour, and form into a ball. (3.) Knead for a few minutes on a floured surface. (4.) Rub the same bowl with olive oil, place dough back in, turning and flipping to coat in olive oil. Cover with a towel and place in a warm place to rise for an hour and a half.
After the dough has risen, punch it down on a floured surface, form into a ball, and put back in the bowl. Cover with a towel and let it sit for another 10 minutes.
When dough is done, cover your rolling pin with flour and roll dough into desired shape and size. Again, if you’re making two pizzas, divide your dough in half. You can freeze one half for a later date or cook them both.
Prep your toppings, and preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Roll out dough slightly bigger than your pan. Slide your pan underneath the dough and carefully move the dough into place. Curl edges over and lightly press into dough to form a crust.
(5.) Brush remaining olive oil all over dough and crust. (6.) Sprinkle goat cheese on crust. Since it has a creamy texture it almost doubles as a sauce for the pizza. Layer on the bacon, tomatoes, onions, and garlic. (7.) Crack the eggs over the pizza, season with salt and pepper, (8.) and then top with shredded mozzarella.
Place in the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes or until eggs set up and cheese starts to turn golden brown.
Remove from oven and let it cool for a few minutes. Slice it up, top with Sriracha, and enjoy!
We washed ours down with Bacon Bloody Mary’s! I’ll be posting the recipe for those tomorrow!
