Budgets are the hardest thing for me to stick with. Especially grocery budgets.
Sure, I’ll make a list and try my hardest to stick with it. But as soon as I see the new s’mores flavored Chobani flips, I just have to have them. And not just one. But like 10. Because, duh, it’s on sale 10 for $10.
It’s obviously necessary.
So when I drop a grocery bag while trying to unlock the front door, because you know… even though I’m now carrying a one year old, I still refuse to take multiple trips to bring in the groceries. I mean, honestly? Who does? And that grocery bag just so happened to have the eggs I just purchased – I thought pretty darn quickly on how to salvage said eggs as to not destroy that budget further. Insert scrambled eggs. And lots of them.
Sure, there are loads of things I could have used these scrambled eggs with – stir fry and breakfast burritos have been on my mind quite a bit lately – I decided I wanted pizza. Breakfast pizza. Whole wheat pizza crust loaded with everything I could possibly want in a breakfast: gravy, eggs, bacon, and cheese.
I can not wait until tomorrow morning to have this again.
makes 1 – 12in pizza / serves 3-4
- 1 serving of whole wheat pizza crust
- 4 oz bacon, chopped*
- 2 tbsp. flour
- 1/2 c milk
- scrambled eggs (I used approximately 6 scrambled eggs for this)
- 1/2 c cheddar cheese, shredded
- 1/2 c mozzarella cheese, shredded
Preheat oven to 500 degrees F.
Roll pizza dough out to a 12 inch circle and place on a prepared baking pan (I used my large round stone)
In a small saucepan, cook the chopped bacon. Once fully cooked, set the bacon aside, and remove all but 2 tbsp. of bacon grease from the saucepan. Add flour to saucepan, whisk in with grease, and cook for 1-2 minutes or until it begins to thicken. You can tell it is beginning to thicken when you take a wooden spoon and scrape it along the bottom of the pan. If the contents of the pan take a moment to re-fill the scraped area, then you’re ready to add the 1/2 c of milk. Bring to a boil and then turn down heat and let simmer until milk has thickened to a gravy consistency.
Spread gravy on the pizza dough. Sprinkle with scrambled eggs and cooked bacon. Top with both cheeses.
Bake for 15 minutes or until the crust has turned golden brown and the cheese has fully melted.
I may drop more egg cartons if this is the consequence of doing so.
