Well for the 3rd blog entry in a row. Let me apologize for being a huge slacker! I'm done with school for a good 6 weeks now, so it's back on!
I would like to begin with an amazing meal I was introduced to while visiting my beloved friends in Seattle. My friend and her husband came up with this little ditty and then shared it with me. Needless to say, now I'm obsessed and I believe you will be too! Breakfast pizza is the shiz...
1 package of Trader Joe's pre-made pizza dough (or if you have the time, your own pizza dough)
2-4 oz of Crimini mushrooms
2-4 oz of thinly sliced prosciutto
Fresh mozzarella cheese
4 free-range, hormone-free eggs
Salt and pepper to taste
Pre-heat the oven to 475 degrees.
Begin by slicing the mushrooms and prosciutto. Sautee in a skillet with some olive oil until the mushrooms are cooked and the prosciutto is crispy.
Next start rolling, pulling, throwing the dough...whatever gets the job done. I must admit, I still suck at this part but I think it will get better with time. The one package of dough from TJ's makes a large pizza, so if yours is small, keep stretching it. Use lots of flour on your hands, the rolling pin, the surface your are rolling on, and the surface that you will be baking the pizza on in the oven. The dough is really, really sticky.
Once you have the pizza dough at your desired size, transfer it to the baking sheet or pizza stone you will be cooking it on. If you have a pizza stone, well then good for you. Seriously, they are awesome! Drizzle some olive oil on the surface of the pizza and spread around with a spoon. Next, spread the mushrooms and prosciutto over the the pizza, break the mozzarella up and spread over the pizza as well. The final touch is the four eggs. Crack them over the pizza and then leave them there to cook sunny side up! Place the whole pizza in the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the eggs are cooked to your preference (easy, medium, or hard). Slice and enjoy!
This amazing breakfast is super easy, crazy delicious, and good for you to-boot. So there!
