What else should you have for breakfast but a Breakfast Pizza. It's got all the breakfast things combined with one of our all time family favourites - pizza!
We have a tradition that for your birthday you can have whatever you want for breakfast. My eldest requested pizza for his birthday breakfast. Around here, our pizza parlours don't deliver at 6am so it was up to mom to make a plan. Fortunately I have the most fantastic recipe for a pizza base, that is easy to make and also makes a crispy, authentic tasting base. The base can obviously have any toppings you like on, but for the purpose of this exercise - I made breakfast.
(Makes 2 dinner plate sized bases)
Mix 1 cup of self-raising flour with 1 cup of plain yoghurt and a pinch of salt. Mix the dough carefully until it binds together. You may need to add a bit more flour if it is a bit moist. Divide the dough in half and roll each ball out to a dinner plate size base on a well-floured surface. Place on a oven tray to go into a very hot (220°C) oven.
Building the Pizza:
Smooth some thick tomato puree over the base. Cover generously with mozarella cheese. Place chopped bacon pieces over the top. Very gently, break an egg in the centre of the pizza. Place in the oven and bake for about 10-15 minutes until the egg is cooked, the cheese has melted and the base is crispy. i sometimes move the pizzas from the top to the bottom of the oven halfway through to make sure the base cooks evenly. Remove and serve!
Because the base is so versatile you can put any toppings on and turn any night into a pizza night.
