Ahhhh I can't stop making breakfast food. But seriously, why would I stop? Breakfast may be my favorite meal of the day--dinner coming in second then lunch for the bronze. Breakfast should be first--it is the most important meal of the day, so they say.
This breakfast pizza will knock your jammies off…if that's a good thing. If it is, it will do that. This zza is so good. I mean so good. Pretty near perfection if I do say so. Happy Monday, make some breakfast....or brinner. Even better.
Spray a large skillet with cooking spray and pour your eggs in. The burner should be on medium heat and you will need to babysit. Using a spatula, just keep scraping the bottom of the pan like so...
Add those pretty eggs...
Jimmy's Smokehouse Ranch Dip. Holy Crap. I mean seriously nothing better than this combination.
Mexican Breakfast Pizza
6 large eggs + salt and pepper to taste
1/2 of Lauren's Latest Failproof Pizza Dough Recipe or your favorite pizza dough recipe
1 tablespoon or so cornmeal (optional but I love it!)
2/3 cup salsa + additional for serving
1 1/2 cups pepper jack cheese
6 turkey sausage patties, cooked
1/2 cup red or green (or both) peppers, diced
1/4 cup red onion, diced
1/2 cup cheddar jack cheese
Jimmy's Smokehouse Ranch Dip, for serving
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
Start by cracking the eggs into a bowl. Season with a bit of salt and pepper. Whisk together with a fork. Preheat a large skillet on medium heat and spray with cooking spray. Pour the eggs into the pan and scramble the eggs by slowly scraping the bottom of the pan. Remove from the heat when no longer runny but not dry. Set aside, off of the burner you cooked on.
Prepare the crust by using a rolling pin to make a large rectangle. Add the cornmeal to the bottom of the pan and gently move the dough onto the pan. Spread the salsa over the dough like you would with pizza sauce on a pizza. Top with scrambled eggs, pepper jack cheese, turkey sausage, peppers, onions then with cheddar jack cheese.
Bake in the oven for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes check on it...if the cheese is melted and it turns golden brown take it out. If it needs a few more minutes just add a few at a time and keep your eye on it--the oven is at almost 500 degrees so it can turn from golden brown to burnt to heck quickly. : )
Cut into squares and top with salsa and Jimmy's Smokehouse Ranch Dip. Enjoy!
**Cook's note: Mr. Schwartz suggested that we cook the crust before adding all of the ingredients next time. I have to say, it is a pretty good idea. If you decide to do this, place the crust (just cornmeal and dough) in the oven for about 3-4 minutes in the 450 degree oven before topping with anything else. After the 3-4 minutes, remove the crust and assemble as directed above. You will take a few minutes off of the full 10 minutes cooking time because the crust will be half way done...I think. Don't quote me on this as I haven't tried it but I think it would work! Let me know if you try it! Over and out**
