Breakfast Pizza

Can you tell that I got a new cookbook?
Now I'm obsessed with trying out all these amazing recipes.
This one seemed a little odd....scrambled eggs on pizza and pizza for breakfast and you cook it on the barbecue? I am so glad we tried it out! It was a close your eyes and savor every bite kind of good. I even had to call my sister to come over quick so she could ooh and ahh over it too.
Seriously, you've gotta try this one!


What you'll need:

Your favorite pizza dough (I used a frozen dough)

Olive oil, for brushing dough

4 eggs

2 tablespoons heavy cream



2 tablespoons butter

12 oz. shredded mozzarella cheese

6 oz. sliced Canadian-style bacon

1 tablespoon coarse cornmeal

2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

Hollandaise sauce (I used the packaged stuff)


Preheat barbecue to medium. Divide dough into 4 individual balls, then stretch each one to about an 8" thin circle. Brush all circles with olive oil and grill oil side down first, until golden brown, about 4 minutes on each side. Keep a close eye on them! Remove from grill and set aside.


Whip the eggs with the heavy cream in a mixing bowl, then season with salt and pepper. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat, add eggs, and scramble. Be careful to not over cook them as they will continue to cook on the pizza.


Top grilled dough with some Hollandaise sauce then mozzarella, Canadian bacon, eggs and more cheese. Dust a pan with cornmeal. Place pizzas on the pan and grill for 5-7 minutes to let the cheese melt. Watch it carefully to make sure they don't burn. Sprinkle with chives and serve with extra Hollandaise sauce on the side for dipping. Your taste buds will love you! And so will your family. Just a thought.....I think I'm going to add a little grilled asparagus on top next time.
