mexican breakfast pizza

hope that everyone had a very merry christmas! ours was fabulous here in san antonio with my parents, although we are pretty bummed about missing the white christmas in dallas! hopefully we'll get to see it again this winter...

i'm not sure this totally qualifies as a breakfast pizza. if you leave out the eggs, it's really just a mexican pizza. but why would you leave out the eggs?

this is a really yummy pizza, and uses one of my favorite ingredients - chipotle sauce - as the base. if you want to kick up the heat, add some jalapeƱos and pepper jack cheese. that's what i'll do next time. :)

mexican breakfast pizza
serves 4

you'll need:
1 pizza dough, store-bought or homemade
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup green bell pepper, chopped
1/4 cup red bell pepper, chopped
1/4 cup red onion, chopped
1/4 cup chipotle sauce
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
2-4 eggs
salt and pepper
1-2 tablespoons chopped green onions, for garnish

preheat oven to 450F.

in a skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. add in peppers and onions and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. set side.

roll out pizza dough to desired thickness (we like ours pretty thin) on a pizza stone or baking sheet. spread chipotle sauce evenly over dough (you might need a little more depending on the size of your dough). spread cooked peppers and onions on top, then sprinkle with cheddar. carefully crack eggs on top and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

bake pizza in oven for about 15 minutes, until the dough is browning and the eggs are cooked. allow to cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.

hope you enjoy this - whether you have it for breakfast or not!
