Breakfast Pizza

Breakfast Pizza

I made this last weekend when a few of the kids were home.  It is inspired by the many recipes for it that I have seen on the web.  It got a “2 thumbs up” response from the girls, and it was just as tasty the next day when it was reheated.  Like regular pizza, it’s totally versatile, so interpret this recipe and use what you have on hand.  I felt as though some feta or goat cheese blobbed on top would have made this even better and will add it next time.  This would also make a nice lunch with a side salad.

Breakfast Pizza

Serves 4

I premade pizza dough (usually available in the freezer section, near bakery in grocery store)

1/4 cup onion, finely sliced

1 large clove garlic, minced

4 cups baby spinach

2 tbsp water

1/2 tsp salt

6 large eggs

1 tsp worchestershire sauce

1/2 cup salsa

2 cups grated old cheddar

salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 F.  Spray pan that you will be using. I used an 11″ tart pan, but feel free to use any type of pan with at least a 1″ side (to hold in filling).  A 9″ x 13″ would be fine.  Spread dough into pan, and up sides. Trim if necessary to desired thinness. *note* if your dough is cold and uncooperative, put it in the microwave for 20-30 seconds to warm it up. Once spread into pan, place in oven and bake for 9 minutes. Remove from oven.

In large pan over medium heat, saute onion in a teaspoon of oil or butter.  When translucent, add garlic and continue to cook for another 2 minutes. Add spinach, 1/2 tsp salt and 2 tablespoons of water and stir. Cover until spinach wilts, about 30 seconds or so.  Remove from heat.

Spread salsa over partially cooked pizza dough. Place spinach mixture over salsa, spreading evenly.  Mix up eggs with 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce and salt and pepper.  Pour over spinach mixture, then top with cheddar.

Place in oven and bake for 20 minutes or until center no longer jiggles and cheese is melted and bubbly.

Let cool 5 minutes. Slice and serve. Enjoy.
