Bribery with Breakfast Pizza

The stars must have been in optimal alignment last weekend when Mr. Incredible willingly agreed to take me shopping. Shopping for floor to ceiling bookshelves. An hour and a half away. At IKEA. Knowing full well that I would take my sweet little time exploring every inch of that 300,000 square foot warehouse with genuine childlike wonderment. Those of you who personally know Mr. Incredible understand that his willingness to shop is the equivalent to an annular eclipse...a rare occurrence happening only once every 241 years (yes, that's an exaggeration).

How did I get him to do it you ask? It may have been my flirtatious chin down, look up, bat the eyelashes and smile coyly technique.  No joke, it works. The research has been done. Do Gentlemen Really Prefer Blondes by Jena Pincott. Check out Chapter 6 "What's the strongest signal you can use to get someone's attention?" It could also have been my smile technique combined with a little breakfast pizza. I'm pretty sure it was. It's a killer combination.

The great things about breakfast pizza are (if you have leftover pizza dough on hand...if not, here's the recipe I use) it's fast to put together and it doesn't take long to bake. So you can have that pie in your belly in under 20 minutes. Here's what you do...

Preheat your oven to 500 degrees (you can use a pizza stone or a regular oiled pizza pan). Roll out your dough. (Click here for recipe) Top it with cheese, bacon pieces, and green onions. Crack a few eggs on top. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake until cheese is melted and eggs are cooked to your liking.

Slice it up.



  1. Oh man, pizza in the morning sounds great, but this picture makes it even better! Beautiful as usual :-)

  2. Thanks Debbie :) I'm a big fan of breakfast for dinner so breakfast pizza is great at anytime.

  3. Besides your delectable-looking pizza and your sharing a love for bookshelves in general, I'm prompted to comment because we also own the Banksy book that's on your shelf. What a small world. Last I checked, not a lot of people even know who he is. Thumbs up on the breakfast pizza. :-)

  4. Absolute DELISH! I love pizza, and I love breakfast, so this may be a new weekend tradition!

  5. Nom nom nom nommy nom nom nom nom.

    That looks phenomenal. I think I'll be making this soon.

  6. that is a beautiful breakfast pizza! I never thought of fried eggs on it, what a great idea...and your images are perfect!

  7. To echo an earlier comment:

    Props on the Banksy book AND that extraordinary breakfast pizza. My husband will be stoked when I bust this one out.
