With just a few minutes of prep and a few simple ingredients you can have delicious breakfast on the table. Breakfast Pizza is a fun a easy recipe to whip up for your family.
2018 is here! Can you believe it? I feel like it’s going to be a STELLAR year! Don’t you agree? I don’t know why, but I just have this feeling that life is going to be AMAZING this year. Don’t ask me why or for any specifics. It’s just a hunch I have.
And my hunches are typically spot on, too. Now THAT I can provide details on, but they’re kind of boring. You can ask my sister. She’s usually the one that puts it to the test quite often.
Of course, it’s always a great start to the year because not only is it Sunday Supper Month, but Sunday Supper Day is January 14th. I truly am a proud member of the Sunday Supper Movement and take the pledge every year. Not only is a great movement to bring families back the table, but it’s a large family of food bloggers who are always there to help, offer advice, or to just cheer you on!
Of course, I love that this whole movement was started by one daughter going off to college and admitting that she would miss the time spent in the kitchen and at the dining table. I can totally relate and understand that.
When my sister got married, I assembled all of the family recipes that we make every year or on special occasions. I’ve mentioned it a few times throughout my blog life. It’s nothing special. They’re all in a small three ring binder, but they’re all there. From Mom’s perogies to Nana’s pimento cheese; all the family favorites I could gather and write down are in there for us to make time and time again.
So, while we couldn’t all be around the table enjoying our family favorites, we could at least enjoy our new families with these old favorites and create new favorites of our own. The hubs and I have a few of our favorite meals like his hot hamburger and Polish dinner. Don’t judge me on the hot hamburger photos. I was still pretty new to the food blogging thing.
As you can tell from these pictures, I’ve come a long way. Though, I have to give credit to one of them. Mom snapped one of them while I was busily serving up breakfast that morning. She’s sneaky like that. And she shared it on her Facebook page to which several replies were “Recipe please?” So, she has the original version that I wrote down for her to pass on to her friends.
And, it’s only fitting that this was Thanksgiving morning breakfast. What better time to sit around the table spending time with those I’m most thankful for! Actually, we were sitting at the bar at our kitchen island. Mom and A were sitting there watching me cook up this beauty. They were also watching me struggle getting that finicky pizza crust to work!
It was one from a tube. DO NOT JUDGE! I suck at pizza crust. I suck at homemade breads periods. The few successes I’ve had I’ve published, but as you can see, there’s not many yeast based breads on my blog. It’s a resolution. Maybe I’ll get to take the Sur La Table bread class at some point.
I struggled. It was real.
They cheered me on offering guidance and suggestions. Isn’t that being a family is about? Whether it’s in life or it’s in making a breakfast pizza, your family should be there for you!
We chatted the whole time about family memories, new memories, what was for snacks and dinner; just talk. Which is always important when you have your family around your table or in your kitchen. Unplug. Put the phone down or the tablet and talk to one another. Disconnect to reconnect. I think that needs to be a motto or a hashtag.
There. It’s official. And that’s what we were doing. Reconnecting with each other after missing out on so many years. Years that we can’t get back, but that we can make up for going forward.
I know, at some point I should tell you how delicious this really is and how simple it was to put together even after struggling with the crust. But there’s a more important message here. And that’s no matter what the differences are and what troubles you’ve had with your family, you’re still family. Relationships can be mended when one or either of you just try. That’s all it takes. Keep trying until all the grievances have been aired and you can work towards building that relationship again.
Now, that being said. This pizza was delicious. It has simple ingredients that tasted amazing when you put them together. And besides, who doesn’t love pizza for breakfast? I mean, If you said that to your kids they would probably think you’ve lost it. But honestly, you can have pizza for breakfast! And it tastes delicious!
The best part is this pizza was light. It wasn’t heavy at all. It was a perfect breakfast to have for Thanksgiving or Christmas where the main event is huge and full of delicious goodness. You could serve this for a light brunch meal or lunch. Or even dinner for a meatless main with a simple side salad. Of course, my hubs would say a simple side salad of chicken or ham, but that’s beside the point. He’s not a huge fan of the meatless meals.
But he is a fan of family recipes, spending time with family, and eating good food like this breakfast pizza.
