It seems I've been talking about pizza a lot lately, but, hey, it has all the food groups!

Judy and I love a breakfast pizza, almost as much as left over pizza and scrambled eggs.  However, it is a little more trouble to make, but worth it all, and, if I can do it, you can do it!

Start with you pizza pan, spray it lightly with your favorite cooking oil and then spread out the dough.  I use Pillsbury Crescent Rolls.  There seems to be just enough triangles to fill the center of the pan.  Then take a small rolling pin, or glass, or anything that will flatten the dough out evenly.  Be sure to close the gaps between the strips of dough, and to push the dough all the way up to the edge of the pan.  I even create a little lip up the sides to ensure the beaten eggs do not get under the dough.

It takes at least 4 eggs to fill the top of the pizza, so in a bowl crack 4 eggs, add salt and pepper, and sprinkle in a some diced jalapeno peppers.  It depends on your taste as to how much, but I love the taste it gives my coffee!

Next I put pepperoni all around the pizza in two rings.  Between the pepperonis I layered on fresh spinach leaves, washed with the stems broken off, and some sliced tomatoes.  I then sprinkled on bacon I had fried and crushed earlier.  I made sure some bacon bits got on top of the spinach leaves and tomato slices to ensure the juice helped cook them.

Finally I generously spread shredded cheese over the entire pizza.  I put the pie in a oven according to the cooking directions on the crescent roll package.

When if came was looking might good and the taste, with my coffee, was terrific!

This usually makes 8 to 9 slices, which is enough for us to enjoy two mornings!  Reheat what's left the next morning on a cookie sheet for about 10 to 12 minutes at 350 degrees.

I can't remember if I've ever mentioned this on this blog or not, but I tell my family and friends that they must save some pizza for their next morning's breakfast!  It is simply wonderful with scrambled eggs!

Last evening, my family had a "goodbye" gathering for our granddaughter Katie Bug.  Today is moving in day at Tennessee Tech and we are going to sorely miss her!

Anyway, we saved half our Big Ed's Pizza for this morning's breakfast.

I sprinkled the pizza with jalapeno chips and put the pie on a cookie sheet and placed it in the oven for 10 minutes on 350 degrees.  That seem to be the right amount of time to crisp up the crust and get everything just hot enough.

I also had coffee ready and then scramble us two eggs for the side.

It's wonderful how jalapeno taste blends with the coffee, giving a fantastic taste combination that becomes addictive!  I usually have two cups!

So, the completed breakfast includes the pizza, eggs, and coffee.  Just the right start for the day!

I'm sorry to say that breakfast reminded me that Katie on her way to the "real world"!  I'm sure going to miss her.

We love pizza about once every two weeks at home, but we like more vegetables and "stuff" on it than you usually can get on a "store bought"!  We especially like fresh, unfrozen, ingredients and a little more "kick"!

I take one "cheese stuffed crust" DiGiorno and layer on extra pepperonis, and sprinkle on some hot pepper flakes and chopped jalapenos.  
Then I chop up some red, yellow, or orange bell peppers (maybe some of all of them), some onion, a slice or two of tomato, and then hold it all together by sprinkling on extra cheese!

You have to imaginative and fearless, 'cause you really can't hurt a pizza.  Anything that will add more flavor and texture is free game!  Maybe some bacon, or fresh cooked sausage!  Just try's delicious!
