Breakfast Pizza - Kids in the Kitchen


My young chefs were up early and eager to get in the kitchen this morning!   We tried something new today.  Breakfast Pizza!  I've seen something similar in McKay's Better Homes and Gardens New Junior Cookbook.  They used bread dough and pressed onto a full sized pizza pan.  WE did our own thing and made individual pizza's using Pillsbury Grands biscuits.   We decided, after trying these, we'd DEFINITELY do them again! (the girls were SO sad Daddy wasn't here to share our fun and yummy food.)  We also decided that one individual pizza is a lot for a little girl, so next time they'd split one. :)

(I have to confess here... I spent a lot of time thinking it would sure be easier to just have bacon, hashbrowns, scrambled eggs, and bicuits separately.... BUT, as the girls were assembling these, it was so much fun to hear their exclamations of "Man!  These are gonna be GOOD!" and "I can't wait to eat these!" and "I wish Daddy was here, he would LOVE this breakfast!".   :o)  It was worth the extra time.  Even if I did a lot of the prep on these myself. )

Breakfast Pizza

1 can of Pillsbury Grands refrigerator biscuits (or store brand if you prefer)
1-1 1/2 C. shredded cheddar cheese
eggs scrambled (1 egg per person)
pieces of bacon, cooked crisp (one piece per person)
1/2 lb hashbrowns, browned

On a large cookie sheet, press out each piece of biscuit dough into a larger flat circle.  Sprinkle a little cheese on the dough and then add a layer of hashbrowns, then a layer of eggs, break up one piece of bacon per pizza and then top with cheese.

Bake at 375 for 13-14 minutes or until crust is browning.  Serve hot!  You may enjoy salsa as a topper.

Joy's Note:  We were feeding 4 people this morning... we used 4 biscuits for pizza's and then baked the other 4 to use later. (probably lunch)  You might be able to use the cheapie biscuits, and press a couple together - or those of you with more time than you know what to do with, feel free to use biscuit dough from scratch. lol  Mornings are not my time for mixing a ton & messing up the kitchen so I think I'll stick with the Grands. ;o)   I fried the bacon & browned the hashbrowns.  The girls broke & scrambled the eggs and assembled everything.  I decided I could brown the bacon ahead & have it in the fridge to make it go faster in the morning.

Don't these look inviting?!
