I don’t know how it is in your house, but in my house we are BIG fans of breakfast, especially on the weekend! My husband and I even get a little competitive when it comes to who does breakfast best. I’ll admit that his omelets are pretty much to-die for, but this yummy breakfast pizza, made with my perfect scrambled eggs, has definitely given him a run for the money.

While there is nothing especially complicated about this recipe, it probably isn’t something I’d attempt on a school day unless I had precooked the bacon the night before. It does, however, make for perfect weekend brunch fare, and also makes enough to feed a crowd (or at least a few hungry teenagers!)
