It all started with a craving for pizza. I had just finished a weekend of camping with my family and was trying to come up with a quick breakfast that would be easy to make, but still delicious. I remembered my Grandma’s Italian Breakfast Pizza that she would make when I was a kid. I thought it would be perfect for a Sunday morning and decided to give it a try.
I gathered the ingredients and started prepping. I always like to add my own twist on things, so I decided to use a combination of Italian herbs and spices to give the pizza a unique kick. I then rolled out the dough and spread a layer of melted cheese. For the topping, I used some leftover eggs from the camping trip, along with some herbs, to give the pizza a unique flavor. I topped it off with a few slices of fresh tomatoes, and then popped it in the oven.
The aroma of the pizza filled the kitchen and I couldn’t wait to try it. After a few minutes, I took it out of the oven and let it cool. My family gathered around the table, and I served up the pizza. Everyone was amazed at how delicious it was. We all agreed that this was the perfect Sunday brunch and that I had taken Grandma’s recipe to a whole new level.
From that day on, Italian Breakfast Pizza has been a staple in our household. It’s a great way to start the day and a delicious reminder of my Grandma’s cooking. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do!
Tip: If you don’t have Italian herbs, you can use a combination of oregano, basil, and thyme.
Variation: For a heartier pizza, add some cooked bacon or sausage.
