So, I’ve been thinking about breakfast pizza for a while now and yesterday I took action. I must say, it was nothing but pure awesomeness. I served the pizza with home made yogurt cream cheese with thyme (don’t worry, a child could do it). I made the dough the day before and just popped it in the fridge. No problem. You can also put the dough in the freezer, to keep for lazy days. That’s the Easy Peasy part of it all.
For 4-6 big servings you will need (I made one batch and put half of it in the freezer for next weekend since we are only 2) :
- 1 1/3 tablespoon Dry yeast
- 3,5 dl Warm water
- 2 tablespoons Sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoon Salt
- 2 tablespoons Olive oil (or any other oil)
- 9-10 dl Flour
- 2 Avocados
- 1 small Red onion
- 150g Grated cheese
- 4-8 eggs (depending on how many you want on each pizza)
- 3 handfuls Spinach
- Salt and pepper
Yogurt cream cheese
- 5dl natural yogurt
Start with the cream cheese since it needs to stand over night. Just pour the yogurt in a coffee filter, that’s in a coffee dripper. If you don’t have coffee making stuff I guess some kind of kitchen towel in a sieve or a funnel would work. Leave over night (with something under to collect the fluid) and the next morning you have made yogurt cream cheese. Amazing huh?
Then get on with the dough. As I said earlier, I did it the night before and kept it in the fridge. If you already have it in the freezer. Take it up and put in the fridge in the evening before. Or if you’re an early bird just do it in the morning. Kneading is an underestimated form of work out.
Pour the warm water (warmer than finger temperature but not burning hot) in a bowl and add the dry yeast and sugar. Let it activate for about 10 minutes. Stir. Add the oil and salt and stir again. Now, add half of the flour and stir well. Keep adding flour a bit at a time until you need to use your hands. Start kneading the dough on a floured work surface and keep adding more flour until the dough no longer sticks to the work surface. This might take at least 10 minutes of kneading. Put some oil in a bowl and let the dough rise in there until it has doubled it size (don’t you just hate that description? I can tell you that it is about one hour).
When the dough is done rising make 4, a bit thicker, pizzas of it. Or put it in the fridge for when you’re going to use it. Sprinkle the grated cheese over the pizzas and add the spinach. Put the avocados on and some of the onion. Bake the pizzas on 200 degrees Celsius for about 10 minutes, until they start to get some colour. Add the eggs carefully and bake the pizzas for additionally 2-3 minutes, or longer if you want the eggs firmer.
Mix your home made cream cheese with thyme, serve and have a really great breakfast!
