PB & J Breakfast Pizza
I’m a firm believer that pizza is a breakfast food. Cold, of course. But sometimes a girl needs some hot pizza for breakfast and that’s when you have to get a little creative.
PB & J breakfast pizza, anyone?
Joey just said, “Isn’t it weird that pb & j can be eaten for breakfast, lunch and dinner?” I added snack to the list of acceptable pb & j eating times and said, “If by weird you mean awesome, then yes.”
I planned on making breakfast pizza but almost caved and made oatmeal after reading blogs before breakfast and seeing some good looking oatmeal concoctions. So glad I stayed strong — this was a fun change up!
I’m still on a chickpea flour kick so of course the pizza crust was socca inspired.
Sweet Cinnamon Socca Crust
- 1 1/4 cup chickpea flour
- 1 cup water
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 375*.
- Mix ingredients and pour into a well-greased round pan.
- Bake 40 minutes or until the top begins to crack.
It will look like so.
Is it just me or does it remind you of the desert? Maybe I just have my vacation to Arizona on the brain.
All I did to go from the above picture to breakfast pizza was cut the socca in half, then smear with peanut butter and jelly and top with what have you.
I used about 1 tablespoon of peanut butter but 2 would be better. If you’re me the second tablespoon doesn’t make it onto the pizza because it goes straight into your mouth, but that’s neither here nor there.
I started out simple with some banana slices.
But then I gave in and grabbed the good stuff.
I’m always nervous when I make something new for breakfast that it might not hold me over as long as my usual oatmeal bowl. Not making it through two classes before getting hungry = biggest fear. Okay, not biggest but it’s up there.
Luckily, this seemed to work fine but I enjoy that full feeling that oatmeal gives me much more. I guess I’ll just have to crumble the rest of the socca onto my oatmeal, and I’m okay with that.
Off to watch Glee!
