Breakfast Pizza Recipe


  • 1 16 ounce loaf frozen whole wheat bread dough, thawed
  • 1 cup sliced zucchini, halved, and/or green or red sweet pepper pieces
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/2cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
  • 1 1/2cups shredded cheddar and/or mozzarella cheese (6 ounces)
  • 2 slices bacon, crisp-cooked, drained, and crumbled
  • Bottled salsa (optional)


  1. Grease a 13-inch pizza pan; set aside. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. On a lightly floured surface, roll bread dough into a 14-inch circle. If dough is difficult to roll out, stop and let it rest for a few minutes. Transfer dough to prepared pan. Build up edges slightly. Prick dough generously with a fork. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until light brown.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet cook zucchini, mushrooms, and, if desired, crushed red pepper in hot oil about 5 minutes or until vegetables are almost tender. Remove vegetable mixture and drain.
  3. In a medium bowl beat together eggs and milk. In the same skillet melt butter over medium heat; pour in egg mixture. Cook, without stirring, until mixture begins to set on the bottom and around edge. Using a large spatula, lift and fold partially cooked eggs so the uncooked portion flows underneath. Continue cooking over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes or until egg mixture is cooked through but still glossy and moist. Remove from heat.
  4. Sprinkle half of the shredded cheese over the hot crust. Top with scrambled eggs, vegetable mixture, bacon, and remaining cheese. Bake for 5 to 8 minutes more or until cheese melts. If desired, serve with salsa.


Prepare as directed, except omit the zucchini or sweet pepper, crushed red pepper, oil, and bacon. After preparing crust, in a large skillet cook 8 ounces bulk pork sausage or Italian sausage and the sliced mushrooms until meat is brown; remove from skillet and drain off fat. Continue as directed in Steps 3 and 4, substituting the sausage-mushroom mixture for the vegetable mixture and bacon.

Eggs & Salmon on Bagels Recipe

If you want a great Christmas morning recipe, this is it.  Easy to make and the salmon makes it feel rich.  Not only that but it’s a high energy start to a big day.


  • 8 eggs
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) milk
  • 3 oz (90 g) smoked salmon, chopped
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) chopped fresh dill
  • salt and white pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) melted butter
  • 2 bagels, each cut in half, toasted and lightly buttered
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) low-fat sour cream
  • fresh dill sprigs, for garnish


  1. Beat the eggs and milk in a bowl until blended. Mix in the salmon, dill, salt and pepper.
  2. Heat the butter in a large, non-stick skillet over medium heat. Pour in the egg mixture. As it begins to set, slowly run a heatproof spatula across the bottom and sides of the skillet to form large, soft curds in the egg mixture. Cook until thick, but still moist, with no visible liquid egg remaining.
  3. Place a half bagel on each of 4 plates. Top with the egg mixture. Dollop with sour cream and garnish with a dill sprig to serve.
