I originally posted this recipe a little over two years ago. I had found the recipe in one of my cookbooks and thought it was so yummy I just had to share it.

Although I’ve made the recipe several times since, the last time I did I wondered to myself, “Is this really the best breakfast pizza ever?”

I mean don’t get me wrong. It was good. But I just felt like it was missing something. And really, if you’re going to claim something is “the best” I really think it should be.

Unfortunately, the original recipe just wasn’t. So I set out to do some experimenting and I’m OVER THE MOON happy with the final results!

The first thing I decided to change was the crust! Instead of the standard can of croissants, I chose my basic pizza crust recipe.
