Breakfast Pizza

Who says pizza can’t be for breakfast! I’ve used traditional pizza dough as well as a sugar cookie base, and really you can’t go wrong with either.

Ingredients:

  • Flour for dusting
  • 1 lb. pizza dough (store bought it awesome)
  • 1 c. ricotta
  • 2 oz. cream cheese
  • 3 Tbsp. powdered sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • Assorted fruit for topping

Process: Start by heating your oven to 425F. Roll out your pizza on a lightly floured surface until you have your desired shape. It should be about 1/2″ thick. Once it’s ready, transfer to a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for about 15 minutes or until it’s golden brown. While it’s baking, mix your ricotta, cream cheese, and powdered sugar until it’s nice and smooth. Pull your dough out of the oven when it’s golden brown and sprinkle with sugar before spreading the ricotta mixture over the top. Then top with whatever fruits your little ones like!

This is a great breakfast for a quick morning on the go! It’s filling, slightly sweet, and jam packed with minerals and vitamins.

Ingredients

  • 3 c. chopped apples
  • 2 c. fat-free milk
  • 2 c. water
  • 1 c. steel-cut oats
  • 1/3 c. packed brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. sliced butter

  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 2 tsp. canola oil
  • 1 tsp. packed brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice

Process: Start by lining your slow-cooker with a liner (like this). Then combine 2 cups of the apples with the milk, water, oats, 1/4 c. brown sugar, butter, vanilla, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg. Cover and allow to cook on low for at least 6 hours. Before you’re about to serve, heat your oven to 450F and take out a baking pan. In a small bowl, toss the apples in oil and toss to coat thoroughly. Put on the baking pan and roast for about 10 minutes. Stir halfway through. Remove from oven and stir in the teaspoon of brown sugar and lemon juice. Serve oatmeal with apples and walnuts!
