Breakfast Pizza

Yum……Pizza.
Yum…..Breakfast.
Yummo….Breakfast pizza…….with bacon and cheese.
I just love that kind of stuff but I know we are coming up on swimsuit season.  Should I be frying thick cut bacon, sprinkling it with cheeses and eggs on a fresh rolled crust, and eating it for breakfast?  Oh man, I wanted to.
I found a recipe on Smitten Kitchen but I really really wanted to make a healthier version of it.  So, I cut the cheese in half, switched the thick cut bacon to tasty yet healthier microwave bacon, and swapped out some of the eggs with just the egg whites. 
Breakfast Pizza

Ingredients:
·        Pizza Dough (I used a pizza dough mix.)
·        6 strips microwave bacon cooked crispy
·        1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
·        1 cups grated mozzarella cheese
·        2 large egg
·        Egg whites from 4 large eggs
·        Freshly ground pepper & salt, and oregano 
Roll out your pizza dough on a baking stone or pizza pan.  Crush up the crispy bacon and spread on top of dough. 


Mix cheeses together and sprinkle over bacon.  Whisk eggs and egg whites together with pepper and a pinch of salt.  Slowly pour into the center of the pizza.  You may have to do some construction work here, and dam up some egg leaks off the edges.


Rolling the edges of the dough slightly before you put on your toppings on, will prevent a dam leak.  Remember….pour slowly.  Sprinkle with oregano. Bake 425 for 10 to 13 minutes, or until pizza cheeses and edges begin to brown.

The recipe will make four servings each containing about 289 calories, 10 grams of fat, 33 grams of carbs, and 15 grams of protein.
