PB & J Breakfast Pizza

March 10, 2011

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
  1. Preheat oven to 375*.
  2. Mix ingredients and pour into a well-greased round pan.
  3. 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!

    I get nervous that my breakfast won’t hold me over too. It’s a legitimate fear!! 🙂

    Is it wrong that I can’t even remember the last time I had PB&J in sandwich form?

      omg me too!!! That’s why I hardly make pancakes or even eat cereal because I’d be too hungry within the hour. I think I’ve had a pb and j sammie like once in my whole life lol so sad

    Wow. That looks delish! I hear you on the oatmeal fullness though. I love how full and satisfied it makes my tummy in the morning. It’s hard to work up the muster to make anything else sometimes… 🙂
