Breakfast Pizza

When the colder weather hits, we turn to two things: Pizza and soup. We make soup as often as possible (nearly weekly so far this fall) and pizza every weekend.

Our Saturday night and Sunday lunch pizzas are great, and they're usually green peppers, mushrooms, onions with some seasonings.

But then there's times when we get tired of that mainstay pizza and crave something different. It was on a recent weekend when Melissa came up with an idea for breakfast pizza. The crust comes from the same recipe we use every time, and the hash browns we used were frozen because that is what we had had in our freezer for months.

The result was a creamy pizza with crunch from the bacon and crust, flavor from the green onions and cheddar and heartiness from the eggs and hash browns. This pizza would make a great party appetizer, too.
