Breakfast Pizza on Sunday morning

I haven't blogged in a few days because I have just been so super duper busy!! Petes knee surgery went well, he is up and moving (thank god) and takin care of his pregnant wife once again.... whew! This morning we woke up and I decided to get a lil creative in the kitchen and make a... breakfast pizza!! Obviously we love pizza, but nothing beats a good breakfast pizza, and Ive never attempted to make one.  (It also helped that I had 4 pizza doughs staring me in the face every time I open the fridge).

First, I preheated the oven to 415, rolled out the dough, sprinkled it with spices and cooked it for 8 minutes on a pizza pan.  While that was cooking I fried up some all natural (but probably not humanely raised) breakfast sausages

I only really used 4 and ate 2 when they were done cooking.  (I let Pete eat one!).  On the other side of the frying pan I sauteed sliced and diced mushrooms.  I sliced up the 4 sausages and added them and the shrooms to the baked pizza crust.

Then I added a generous handful of shredded cheddar cheese

And scrambled 5 eggs.  5 was either too many, or I need to figure out a better way to dump them on the pizza, because once I added them (slowly too!) they oozed over parts of my pizza crust.

Oh well.  As the pizza baked they kept spilling over the side.  Still edible and yummy, just not as pretty. I baked the whole pizza for 17 mins, then took it off the pan and baked it for 3 more.  We like crunchy crust pizza though, if you wanted a more doughy pizza you should keep it on the pan and probably not pre-bake the crust.

Not very good photos, but the pizza did come out really good! I will make this again but definitely use some bacon next time, because bacon makes everything better.
After breakfast Mikayla went to a birthday party (Collin's) at a bouncy-bounce (and ate more pizza) Here's a photo from the party

And here is Mikayla with her best friend Delia

L to R: Sarah, Jillian, Mikayla, Delia, Matthew
 Mikayla is so excited because Delia is going to ride the bus home with her on Friday and come over to play!! Kindergarten play dates are awesome!!!

Off to relax and enjoy the last night of my weekend, which just FLEW by this time. March is just such a long month for teachers because there isn't a vacation to look forward to, and April vacation just seems so far away.
