Make A Breakfast Pizza

2017/05/24 Posted by

How many times has your teenager turned up their nose at breakfast and wanted pizza instead? Why not give them pizza? I have tried many times and many ways to get my children to eat a healthy breakfast. Nothing seems to work. Then I tried severing pizza for breakfast. Breakfast pizza may take a little longer to prepare than normal breakfast, but the reward and the fun is worth it. What I do is take a can of biscuits or if you really want to be creative you can make your own dough from scratch. Roll all the biscuits together, and then roll them out to make a round disk shape. You have your base start. Pizza for breakfast? I thought ridiculous! However, I started making this back in the 1970s and 1980s when my kids were small and found that getting them to eat breakfast was a snap once I found creative and surprising things to make for breakfast. This was by far a favorite in our house – it still is 30 years later! When our grown children visit, they still enjoy having none other than breakfast pizza. There are a lot of variations but here is my ‘tried and true’ from way back when and then some ideas for other variations. Then you start making white gravy for the second layer. This takes the longest to make because the gravy has to thicken. In the mean time you can be cooking your bacon. Make the bacon crisp so it can be easily crumbled, or you can use bacon bits – either one is good. After your gravy is thick and the bacon ready, you can start scrambling your eggs. Be sure to make them light and fluffy. Also have cheese ready, packed shredded is good or you can shred your own. With everything ready it’s now time to assemble your pizza. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. One of my stables that I eat almost every day is a small amount of cereal with a lot of fruit in it. This helps me get some much needed fruit in my diet. Also, the most of the calories are in the cereal itself, so I try to put as little cereal as possible, usually about a fourth of a cup, sometimes a half of a cup. But the amount of fruit combined with the cereal helps keep me full until about noon, which is when I try to have a small amount of food, usually veggies like carrots or cucumbers. In my cereal, I also try to keep down on the amount of milk that I put in it. Milk has a lot of calories, and while it does have some useful calcium, the amount of calories can be bad. So I put the barest necessary amount of milk, just enough to make everything float a little bit. Though I have heard that one of the best things to have in the morning is protein. So sometimes I switch up my routine and have a piece of bread with some peanut butter on top of it. I usually toast the piece of bread, because there is something so delicious about a crunchy piece of toast and some slightly melted peanut butter on top. This gives me the protein I need in the morning and helps me not need to eat until about noon.
