Breakfast Pizza

Its a lazy Saturday over here, Sophie and I have been cuddled on the couch sipping coffee and reading.

A lazy weekend deserves a lazy breakfast. I know I’ve told you all about my love of breakfast and pizza but when I was on vacation I had a glorious breakfast pizza at Tuff Beans Coffee House in Tofino BC. I mean look at this thing whats not to love.

It was a delicious treat, as soon as I tasted it I knew I wanted to try my hand at making my own at home. I’m kind of obsessed with cauliflower right now, so I decided to make a cauliflower crust. Its super easy, tasty and an easy way to get your veggies in.

After copious amounts of coffee Sophie and I got to work in the kitchen and by work I mean we drank more coffee and chopped a few things. First I cooked my cauliflower, I usually use the fresh stuff but this time I went a bag of the frozen stuff. I threw it all in a pot and let it cook. Once it was soft I put it in a colander to drain, then cooked my bacon and sausage, and got my other toppings ready.

After the cauliflower had properly drained I mashed it, added my spices and cheese and formed it into a pizza crust shape on my pan. I wanted a little kick this morning so I used hot sauce instead of pizza sauce. After I added my toppings I cracked a few eggs on top and threw it in the oven and let it bake for just under 20 minutes on 350.

I served this deliciousness with toast, oranges and of course more coffee in my new fave mug.

What you need

5 Eggs

1 Bag frozen cauliflower

2 Pinches Italian seasoning

1 3/4 Cup Mozzerella

1/4 Cup + a sprinkle of parmesan

1 Bell pepper

4 Links Breakfast sausage

4 Strips of bacon

Hot sauce or pizza sauce

First cook your cauliflower as directed on the package. While you’re waiting for the cauliflower you can cook your bacon and sausage and chop the rest of the toppings. Once your cauliflower is cooked drain and mash it. Then mix in one egg, 3/4 cup of mozzarella cheese, 1/4 cup of the parmesan, and the Italian seasoning. Spread it all out on baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Now you just have to add your toppings, crack the remaining eggs and bake at 350 for about 20 minutes. Now serve and enjoy.

I know Maddie has been missing from the blog for a few weeks. She has been on vacation with my parents while we are in transition to a new house.  I think she is enjoying herself.

As always let me know if you give this a try and what you think.

Until next time,

Desiree
