Breakfast Pizza Recipe
Our prosciutto pizza recipe will make your mornings not just easy but oh-so delicious too! There’s nothing quite like a smoked mozzarella pizza. Smoked mozzarella is a light golden color on the outside with a mild smoky flavor. Inside, this cheese is white in color and has a delicious milky flavor. The smokiness of the cheese provides and added depth of flavor. Your taste buds will be so happy when you add smoked mozzarella to your pizza!
Our prosciutto pizza toppings all compliment each other. Pesto provides a fresh herb flavor, tomatoes give a burst of juiciness, smoked cheese adds a balance of creamy texture and a hint of smokyness and prosciutto lends a salty note. A fresh baked egg is the crowning glory!
I have fond memories of my four sons, who are all grown up and married now, as little boys running in to give me breakfast in bed on Mother's Day. Their excited smiling faces, filled with the anticipation of my reaction, are etched in my memory.
I will always remember one Mother's Day in particular when they ran in with their adorable homemade cards. They had pasted beautiful cut-out hearts all over their cards professing their love.
Unfortunately, they got a bit confused with all the hearts that they mistakenly wrote "Happy Valentine's Day" inside! Too funny....we still laugh about it to this day....well, actually I haven't let them forget it!
But I know they love me on Mother's Day, Valentine's Day and every day! And now I am blessed to be the grandma of my
five eight (updated 2018!) little loves and my Mother's Day is bursting with love and happiness!
One of my favorite parts of Mother's Day is breakfast in bed and a mozzarella prosciutto pizza with an egg on top is an easy way for dad and the kids to make you your special meal. So easy peasy, even dad can get this done with the kids! Enjoy breakfast in bed!
Happy Mother's Day!
