A Fine Breakfast

Grilled Breakfast Pizza:

Pre-made personal-sized pizza crust

Tomato sauce, diced tomatoes or salsa/pico

Cheese [at least 2 kinds]

Toppings [bacon, sausage, ham, onions, peppers, mushrooms, the sky's the limit]

Egg [or two depending on crust size]

Start the grill, oil the grate and place crust right on alone for a couple minutes to warm up and crisp the bottom.

Tomato up the pizza crust

Add cheese and toppings

When cheese is melted and toppings look almost done, crack the egg right on top*. Close lid and cook till opaque. Finish with oregano, rosemary, stuff like that.

*If you prefer scrambled - whip them up on the side burner until just about done, then spoon on top and finish in the grill

This is especially good after a long, early-morning, late-summer run [or ride]. Standing barefoot beside the grill at 8AM on a Sunday with a cool bottle of water and a spatula, is remarkably ... well, it's just weird, let's be honest.

If you can't possibly eat pizza without a beer [even at 8AM!], I suggest something light ... A non-NASCAR pilsener or a hefeweizen - this IS summer after all. If you require something stronger to start the day, might I recommend ...

Founders Breakfast Stout
You?ve got to love coffee to truly appreciate this phenomenal brew. Brewed with an abundance of flaked oats, bitter and sweetened imported chocolates, Sumatra and Kona coffee. Breakfast Stout has an intense fresh roasted coffee nose toped with a cinnamon colored frothy head that seems to never fade and makes you wish breakfast could last forever.

Not sure what I think of egg on a pizza. Having said that, one of my favourite (sorry, favorite, LOL) home made pizzas has artichoke hearts and fetta cheese, so there's no accounting for taste.
