Do you think your kids would enjoy this pizza for breakfast?
If you like breakfast burritos or even a breakfast casserole, you will enjoy this pizza. You can use a store bought pizza dough, ready made crust or make your own dough. The secret to this pizza is the creamy egg base that holds all these yummy toppings together.
In a saucepan over medium heat, melt your butter and add your flour. This is a simple white roux that is the base of most sauces and gravies, like in my chicken pot pie, chicken dumplings, roasted chicken gnocchi soup, or homemade chicken gravy.
Two things are important to making a fantastic roux:
1) Melt your butter; don't brown it, and
2) Cook your flour for a couple of minutes to prevent the "raw flour" taste.
Add milk or half and half ...
... pour your beaten eggs directly into the roux.
Cook over medium heat, until the eggs become soft-set. Be careful not to over-cook the eggs. You want them to be soft and creamy, not stiff and rubbery.
Spread the egg mixture on top of your shaped pizza dough.
Top with any of your favorite breakfast toppings: Canadian bacon, sausage, bacon, diced red or green peppers, onions, sharp white cheese and mozzarella cheese.
You can bake this on a parchment lined baking sheet or a pizza stone. I love using a pizza stone, as it cooks my pizza dough evenly, creating a crisp crust throughout.
Bake until the pizza is has a golden brown crust and the cheese is brown and bubbly.
Wow ... even the creamy eggs have a touch of golden brown!
You don't have to have breakfast pizza in the morning.
You can have it any time you want!
