Food Mashup: Pizza for Breakfast

It’s no secret that I love breakfast (see here & here for just a couple of examples). It’s also no secret that I love pizza…and experimenting with pizza (like when I made Chicken Alfredo PizzaCaesar Salad Pizza, and Enchilada Pizza). Want to know something else I love? PIZZA for BREAKFAST. Don’t act like you’ve never done it. I do NOT, however, like cold pizza, so this recipe looked like a winner.
Instead of leftover pizza for breakfast, what if we created a pizza that screamed breakfast? That’s right, I’m talking eggs, bacon, hash browns, and of course, cheese. Get wild. I also added mushrooms and dried herbs. Topping options are limitless. Maybe you’ll get even crazier and make a pancake crust and douse it in syrup. (If you do try that, let me know how it is).
