Breakfast pizza is a hot new trend and pretty easy to make too, especially if you cheat a little and stop by one of your favorite pizza places to pick up a round of uncooked dough. Then the breakfast toppings are up to you. This one is béchamel, bacon, candied jalapeños and eggs. So yummy!!!
1 1/2 – 2 cups béchamel sauce
1 round of pizza dough, homemade, or bought from your favorite local pizza joint
1/2 cup vegetable or olive oil
2 cups white Cheddar
5 slices bacon
2-3 tablespoons candied jalapeños, chopped
Make your béchamel sauce. Then turn on the grill while you stretch out the pizza to the desired shape. If you don’t have a grill, but you have a griddle, you can use that, just make sure it’s really hot before putting the dough down. Moisten a paper towel with oil and oil the grill where you will be placing the pizza.
Pre-cook bacon and lay out on paper towel to drain. Lay the dough out on the grill. Remove when grill marks form. Spread the béchamel evenly over the grilled surface, scatter cheese, bacon and jalapeños. Crack eggs and scramble in separate skillet then distribute evenly over pizza.
Oil the grill again with a paper towel. Replace pizza on the grill for about 8 minutes then serve.
