What is your absolute favourite food? I think mine might have to be pizza (with ice cream for afters!). It is always my first choice when it comes to ordering takeout and I love making my own at home too. Now I’ve come up with a pizza recipe that means that you can have it for breakfast as well as lunch or dinner! And no, I’m not talking about cold leftover pizza!

This breakfast pizza is extremely good and is perfect for a breakfast or brunch to impress; but it is also great for dinner too (who doesn’t love breakfast for dinner?!). I topped mine with tomato sauce, mozzarella and cheddar cheeses, cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, bacon and eggs – the classic breakfast foods. Of course you can vary the toppings to suit; sliced cooked sausages (either meat or veggie) or black pudding would be great additions, as would a scattering of baby spinach leaves.

Now, I don’t know about you but I don’t like having to wait too long for my breakfast in the morning, and I definitely couldn’t wait long enough for bread dough to have to rise; so I like to make the pizza dough (and tomato sauce) the day beforehand and leave it to rise in the fridge overnight. That way in the morning you just have to roll it out, pile on the toppings and bake. You can also leave the dough to rise at room temperature for an hour if you prefer and don’t mind waiting a little longer for your breakfast. Or you can even just use shop bought pizza bases to make it really quick and easy, it will still taste amazing!
