Breakfast Pizza

This breakfast pizza is based on the one I grew up with, which was based on my grandmother’s baking powder biscuits recipe. It’s a fun , hearty breakfast, and easy to make.

Equipment

Parchment Paper

Ingredients

  • 1 lb Bacon
  • 3-4 Large Eggs
  • 2 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 3 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • ½ tsp Dried Oregano
  • cup Shortening
  • ¾ cup Milk
  • Baby Bella Mushrooms sliced
  • 1 Green Bell Pepper sliced
  • 1-2 cups Sharp Cheddar Cheese shredded

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Chop bacon into ½″ strips, cook til almost crispy. Use a slotted spoon to remove bacon from pan and set aside, reserving drippings for other uses (May I recommend our “Epic Popcorn?).
  • Whisk eggs and scramble just until set. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • In a medium sized bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, salt, and oregano.
  • Measure shortening into the same bowl, and cut into the dry ingredients using a pastry cutter or fork(s). The ideal is to work it in until it’s evenly distributed throughout, in very small pieces. Add a handful or two of the bacon, stir gently to distribute.
  • Add milk, stir until dough comes together. Don’t over stir or beat it.
  • On prepared baking sheet, spread dough out, forming a crust that is of even thickness – between ½″ – ¾″ thick. Evenly distribute scrambled egg over the crust, and top with mushrooms, green peppers, and remaining bacon (use whatever amounts of each that you like). Scatter cheese over the entire pizza.
  • Bake for 12-15 mins, or until dough is cooked through.
