Not Everything is a Success: Breakfast Pizza

Breakfast Pizza 550

This seemed like a good idea and I still think it is a good idea, but this attempt was not a success.

This week we have family visiting us all the way from Florida and they drove!  Yes they crossed half the country and spent approximately 23 hours in a vehicle to come and see Obed and I, we are that special. 😀  Because I suspect that we will be spending most afternoons out of the house, I decided that this week is going to be all about breakfast.

I wanted to try something different so I though a breakfast pizza qualifies as different.

Let me say that I do not blame the recipe or the idea of eggs on pizza for the failure of this dish, I blame myself.  My first mistake was that I was on the phone with my mother while I was preparing the pizza.  Because I was on the phone, I forgot to oil the pan, did not read the instructions correctly and had the oven at the wrong temperature when the pizza went into the oven.  The result of these mistakes was a pizza was glued to the pan and eggs that literally turned to rubber, not pleasant.  My final mistake was buying a cheese that I was unfamiliar with. I expected the cheese to have a nice gooey stretch, instead we got gummy clumps, not cool.

There were two things about this pizza that were good, the crust and of course the bacon.  How can you go wrong with bacon?   I however refuse to feel defeated, I will try this pizza again, read the directions thoroughly and stay off the phone.   Apparently I cannot chew gum and walk at the same time, but I knew this already.

    You should definitely try again! i’ve made this exact recipe about 5-ish times and each time its turned out well. i didnt have a pizza stone so i used a cast iron skillet and added goat cheese and tomatoes and nixed the green stuff. its a huge crowd pleaser and delicious, so you should so give it another go.

    Those eggs look like a HOT mess if you ask me. But no worries, I’m sure you will have better luck next time around. You have spunk kid and thats all that matters.

    I know how you feel. I had something similar happen recently. It looks beautiful though. I hope the next one works out better for you.

    PS: Bacon is Meat Candy :)

    Well, we have our ups and our downs! I tried to make waffles for dinner yesterday (having made waffles every Saturday morning for my entire life)… total fail. I’ve never seen such a stuck, oily mess. Should have taken a picture!

    Breakfast food is my favorite food. I never thought about a breakfast pizza. I’ll have to try it sometime. Will be interested to hear how your second attempt at this goes!

    We’ve all been there, done that. I don’t always blog my failures but I always write them down in my cooking journal, I learn a lot from them.

    I’m curious to know what recipe you used? I’ve always been intrigued by breakfast pizza too, but never had the courage to try it! Are you waiting to attempt again to post a recipe? : )
