Breakfast Sandwich Pizzas Recipe Breakfast Sandwich Pizzas Recipe

Breakfast sandwiches have become as much a part of the early morning scene as a bowl of cereal and a glass of OJ. Many of us think nothing of picking up an egg-and-cheese or bacon-egg-and-cheese sandwich along with our daily cup of coffee at the local quick-stop on the way to work. You've always been used to choosing your sandwich on an English muffin, croissant, bagel, or biscuit. Well, now comes breakfast pizza: your favorite breakfast sandwich ingredients, piled atop a chewy pizza crust.

Ingredients

Choose your measure:

Dough

Topping

  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar, Swiss, or Monterey Jack cheese
  • 8 slices cooked or uncooked bacon, diced ham, or cooked, crumbled, sausage

Instructions

  1. To make the dough: Mix and knead together all of the dough ingredients — by hand, mixer or bread machine — until you've created a smooth, soft dough. Don't over-knead the dough; it should hold together, but can still look fairly rough on the surface.
  2. Allow the dough to rise, covered, for 45 minutes; then refrigerate it for 4 hours (or up to 36 hours); this step will develop the crust's flavor. Make sure you have the dough in a large covered bowl, or put it into a large, lightly greased plastic bag; leave plenty of room for expansion.
  3. Remove the dough from the refrigerator, and allow it to rest and warm up a bit while you prepare the topping.
  4. To prepare the topping: Whisk together the eggs and cheese. Cut the bacon into 1" squares; a pair of scissors works well here. If you're using ham, cut it into bite-sized pieces. Stir the meat into the egg and cheese mixture. Refrigerate the topping while you prepare the crust.
  5. Divide the dough into four, six, or eight pieces, depending on how large you'd like your pizza to be. One-fourth the dough will make a 5" to 6" round pizza.
  6. Stretch and shape each piece of dough into a circle, patting it flat as best you can. The flatter the circle, the thinner the crust. Place the circles on two lightly greased (or parchment-lined) baking sheets, and allow them to rest, uncovered for 10 minutes.
  7. Preheat the oven to 450°F.
  8. Bake the pizzas for 8 minutes. Remove them from the oven. Divide the topping evenly among them.
  9. Return to the oven, and bake for an additional 16 minutes on the oven's upper rack, until the topping is nicely browned. Remove from the oven, and serve immediately.
