Bake For The Cure Baking Contest! Part 3-Breakfast Pizza!

Today's recipe comes from the Bake For The Cure cookbook, which is available for just $2.00 on their website.  It's a Breakfast Pizza, with delicious ingredients like sausage, egg, cheese and hash brown potatoes on a home-made-from-scratch pizza crust!  Here's the original recipe:

Breakfast Pizza

1-3/4 to 2 cups All-Purpose Flour
1 envelope Fleischmann's Pizza Crust Yeast or Rapid Rise Yeast
3/4 teaspoon Salt
2/3 cup very warm Water (120-130 degrees)
1 tablespoon Olive Oil

8 oz. Sausage, cooked and crumbled
1 cup frozen Hash Brown Potatoes, thawed
1/4 cup Chopped Onion
3 Eggs
1/2 teaspoon Durkee Ground Mustard
1/2 teaspoon Durkee Ground Black Pepper
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese

For a personal twist I added some bacon, green pepper, basil and thyme.  Which means (if you make it with these extra ingredients :) you'll also need:

3/4 cup Bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/4 cup Chopped Green Pepper
1/2 teaspoon Basil
1/2 teaspoon Thyme

Combine 1 cup flour, undissolved yeast and salt in a large bowl.  Add very warm water and oil; mix until well blended (about 1 minute). Gradually add enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Dough should form a ball and will be slightly sticky.

Knead on a floured surface, adding additional flour if necessary, until smooth and elastic (about 4 minutes).  (If using rapid rise yeast, let dough rest at this point for 10 minutes.) Pat dough with floured hands, pressing gently to fill greased pizza pan or baking sheet. OR, roll dough on a floured counter to 12-inch circle; place in a greased pizza pan or baking sheet. Form a rim by pinching the edge of the dough; prick surface with fork.  (Note: Our family prefers deep-dish pizza, so to go along with that, I made this in a 9-inch deep-dish pie pan).

Bake crust in a preheated 450 oven on lowest oven rack for 8 minutes. Reduce oven to 375. Remove crust from oven.

Top pizza crust with sausage, hash browns and onions. (If using extra ingredients, add bacon and green pepper as well).  Beat eggs, ground mustard, pepper and salt together in a bowl (optional, add basil and thyme). Pour over toppings. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake for 16-20 minutes until eggs are set and crust is browned.

A slice of Breakfast Pizza!

This pizza was a huge hit with my family; we are already making plans to bake it again for breakfast fact, we'll probably make 2 of them so there's plenty to go around!  I was impressed that the crust wasn't dry at all, and the onion, green pepper and herbs add a nice, distinctive flavor to the pizza! Of course, in my family you can't go wrong if you add cheese to something, so having cheese top it off-turned a great dish into an Excellent dish!!

So, now you know what's coming-I need your comments, please!  Let me know if you'd add or change anything, or just tell me if it looks good! Thanks to all my neighbors helping me with this contest!!

I'm always afraid to make yeast products. I guess I've had too many failed bread attempts.

That looks so good, and really, like something I could eat for breakfast! I hope you enjoyed it - that's a great recipe!

I like that you added hash browns. As a whole is sounds spicy and delicious :)

I think it looks very good and I would leave it just the way it is!
I like that you added bacon and spices to it, I've always thought that breakfast pizza tends to be bland tasting.

Another great recipe, can't wait to try it!

I once made a quiche using hash browns as the crust (oil them and press into pie pan, then pre-bake a few minutes before adding the rest of the ingredients)- it was really good (and I'm a sucker for potatoes), so I might try your recipe doing that and forgoing the pizza dough. But it looks really yummy!

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

 Hey neighbors, its with a heavy heart I let you all know that my mom (Lori) unexpectedly passed away the end of June. Our family has been taking the time between now and then to be together and remember what a light mom was. I came on towards the end of last year and was planning on fully moving my interviews and review to this website. I intend to to so partially to keep mommas beautiful website going. Thank you all so much for your love and support over the years. ~Mercy
