Any food can be eaten for breakfast. Healthy, unhealthy, cold, warm, finger food or utensils required, it’s your choice what you eat in the morning and how you eat it. In the United States, it seems as though meals are often chosen around convenience rather than the food itself. Busy schedules and family obligations are common reasons for this way of eating.
But what would you say if we suggested easy-to-grab pizza as your morning meal? Let’s take a closer look at breakfast pizza and then talk about how to make a delicious and nutritious version of your own.
Pizza is pizza… but not in this case!
At some point in your life, you’ve reached into the refrigerator to retrieve cold pizza for breakfast. That next-day flavor of hardened cheeses, meats and veggies sure hits the spot. Tasty as it is, it might bring back memories of your poor college student days, or serve as a periodic reminder that you need to go to the grocery store more often. Leftover pizza makes great breakfast food, but there’s another way to have pizza for breakfast. You guessed it: make your own breakfast pizza!
Make and bake
Just as when building a traditional pizza, you have freedom with breakfast pizza toppings. A good rule of thumb is to focus on using ingredients you enjoy eating. First, either make your own dough, buy a pre-made dough or ready to-go crust or opt for something fun, like a cheese crust or tortillas. Note that leftover breakfast pizza can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days. Reheat in the oven or enjoy it cold:
- Classic toppings: For a classic breakfast pizza, use ingredients such as shredded cheese or a cheese sauce, pre-cooked eggs (any style), hash browns, various thinly sliced vegetables and sausage crumbles. Most any breakfast-like foods can work. Prepare your ingredients the night before for a faster process in the morning.
- Use leftovers: If you tend to use leftovers to create meals toward the end of the week, then this option is for you! Similar to tossing leftover meats and veggies into pastas and rice dishes or to top a traditional dinner pizza, take this same concept and apply it to breakfast pizza. Cube up leftover egg casserole to use instead of new scrambled eggs, dice roasted veggies from last night’s dinner and sprinkle cheese on top of a crust. It’s breakfast, but in a convenient handheld package!
- Go with frozen pizza: You can create and freeze your own breakfast pizzas, but another option awaits you in the form of already-made frozen pizza. Find your favorite toppings and crust at the store, or contact a frozen pizza wholesaler. For example, Giovanni’s Frozen Pizza offers a breakfast pizza that cooks up fast and tastes great. Perfect for feeding big groups, these pizzas are everything you’re looking for in a good breakfast.
