Breakfast pizza – hard to resist!
Breakfast pizza?? Hmmm….
Make in advance healthy breakfast? Do you need inspiration for a healthy breakfast and something you can make in advance? Save time during the week and make extra to put in the freezer. Enter the breakfast pizza with a bonus cheesy crust. Because, other than cracking the eggs on top, everything can be made the night before so in the morning, you can sip your coffee while it cooks!
Low Gluten or Gluten Free breakfasts can be a bit of a challenge so get on board with this idea. These breakfast pizzas are versatile and quite filling. The crusts can be made in bulk and frozen so when you find cauliflowers are in season, and therefore CHEAP, buy up big. The crusts will keep in the freezer for about 3 months if you tightly wrap them in clingfilm.
You can add all sorts of toppings. Keep it simple with a tomato relish and eggs. Or layer tomato relish with sliced avocado and grill some of your favourite cheese over the top.
Breakfast Pizza with a Cheesy Crust
- 1 head cauliflower about 600g – finely processed
- 5 eggs
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
- 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
- ½ cup tomato relish or sauce nice and spicy
- 100 g of baby bocconcini or 100g fresh mozzarella
- handful of fresh basil leaves
- Preheat your oven to 180°C, and grease a 22cm round pizza or 22cm flan tray. I find the flan tray is the best because the bottom is loose, so you can easily get the pizza out when it is cooked!
- Microwave the cauliflower for 5 minutes, allow to cool and then squeeze as much moisture out as you can. Mix in one of the eggs. Season with salt and pepper.
- Spread the mixture out on the pizza or flan tray, making sure there is a bit extra at the edge. Carefully put the Paremsan cheese around the edge and then cover with the excess cauliflower mixture – this will make the cheesy crust.
- Bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Take out ready to cover with your toppings. At this point you can freeze it.
- Spread your relish or pasata over the base, then the grated cheese, finally arrange slices of mozzarella around the top.
- Carefully make four impressions in the pizza and crack in the remaining eggs.
- Bake for another 10 – 15 minutes, or until the egg whites are cooked properly.
