Bacon, Egg & Cheese Breakfast Pizza
Let's clear up one thing first. I have neither the appetite nor the motivation to make this for breakfast. The best I can manage is a bowl of dry cereal first thing in the morning. Sometimes, if I'm feeling especially energetic, I'll add milk. I could probably face this for brunch on a lazy Sunday but you should know that, when we go out for Sunday brunch, it's usually around 1:00 o'clock in the afternoon. So, what I'm trying to tell you is that, when I say breakfast, I mean breakfast for dinner. I love breakfast for dinner. It's my favorite meal of the day.
1 ball of uncooked pizza dough, approximately 8 or 9 oz.
1 Egg (or 2 if you prefer)
3 Slices thick cut bacon
1/2 Red bell pepper, diced
1/2 Cup shredded cheese (I used cheddar)
1 Tablespoon chopped chives
Salt & pepper to taste
On a well floured surface, roll your dough out to approximately a 9" round and place it on a piece of parchment paper. Spread the cheese evenly across the dough and crack an egg into the center. Sprinkle on the bell pepper, the slices of par-baked bacon and the chives. Season and transfer the parchment paper onto the baking sheet. Bake for approximately 15 minutes or until the egg is set to your liking.
