Foodie Friday ~ Bacon & Egg Breakfast Pizza

I got this recipe from the Food Channel recipes. The original recipe was called "Applewood Smoked Bacon & Egg Breakfast Pizza". I changed it around and this is what I came up with. Hope you like it as much as we did:Make your dough.
Roll it out.
Get your pans ready with cornmeal.
Fit the dough into the individual pizza pans.
Add ingredients and bake.
Add the eggs.
Add the cheese.
Ready to eat and so much fun to make.

Bacon & Egg Breakfast Pizza

Betty Crocker Pizza Crust Mix
Cornmeal for dusting
Olive oil, as needed
½ cup Fresh Tomatoes - chopped
1 cup Fresh Spinach – optional
9 Slices Bacon – crumbled (baked in a 350 degrees oven for 20-25 minutes)
3 Green onions – sliced
3 – Eggs
Cheddar Cheese
½ cup Fresh Tomatoes – chopped
Heat oven to 450 degrees.
Make pizza dough per package. Divide dough into 3 pieces; roll or hand stretch each into a 7-inch crust. Sprinkle lightly with cornmeal and arrange cornmeal side down, on individual pizza pans.
Combine butter and spinach in small nonstick skillet and sauté over medium heat for 30 to 60 seconds, stirring constantly, until just wilted; reserve. (I didn’t have spinach at the time so I skipped)
Spread olive oil lightly on the dough. Sprinkle bacon, onions and tomatoes around outer edge of each pizza (leaving center open for egg). Bake for 4 minutes. Remove pizza from oven.
Gently pour cracked egg in center of each pizza. Cook until eggs are the way you want them. About 5 or 6 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese. Return to oven until cheese is melted. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.

I remember seeing this on one of the cooking shows, but I think it was "Guys ... Diner?? (Now I can't remember the name of the show)
A long time ago my mother would use frozen bread dough to make pizza crust. It does have to rise and of course punched down... but it keeps people like me who fear making anything with yeast a fighting chance. lol I love breakfast ideas and glad to get this recipe. Thanks!

This looks great...I'm Italian so i would have to substitute the spinach for some sauted' green peppers....we are big fans of peppers and eggs....add it onto a pizza it should be wonderful...thanks for the inspiration!

Looks great -- I remember pizzas with eggs on them in Europe. They were tasty as I recall.

I have been making the pizza crusts from the Artisian Bread in 5 minutes a day. This would be a great way to use it. Thanks!!

Great idea! I like breakfast (both eating it and cooking!), but often run out of ideas for anything new or different. Your recipe would be a great addition to my morning meal "repertoire." Thanks for the inspiration!

Have a wonderful weekend!
