In the Phoenix metro area, kids are already into the school year. At the beginning of the school year, most parents are frantically looking for good lunch options. While school lunches have become healthier over the last couple of years, many schools which are not part of school districts still rely on catered lunches for their students. In this scenario, sending packed lunch from home is still the preferred choice for many parents. I made this recipe using simple breakfast staples like eggs, ham, sausages which can double up as a pizza for school. You can either go for a premade pizza crust for the base or substitute with focaccia bread, naan bread or even a pie crust. Here is the recipe for breakfast pizza. It can be a good option for a weekend breakfast or for a weekday school lunch.
- 1 small pizza crust (premade)
- 2 eggs (beaten)
- 2 tbsp ketchup
- 2-3 slices of ham
- 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
- 1 medium sausage (chopped)
- ¼ cup diced onions (optional)
- ¼ cup dices bell peppers
Heat a skillet and warm both sides of the pizza crust (or focaccia or naan bread). Add beaten eggs on the pizza crust and spread it evenly to coat the whole crust. Spread the ketchup over the egg. Add the ham, sausage, onions and bell peppers over the egg. Evenly spread the cheese over the crust. Cover with a lid and let it cook for 5-7 minutes till the egg is slightly cooked. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Place the skillet in the oven for 15 minutes for the top of the egg to become firm and the cheese to melt. If you are short on time, skip the oven option. Instead, carefully flip the pizza in the skillet over the cook top. Cook for an additional 3 minutes till the egg is fully cooked. Slice into wedges and serve hot.
