Spinach-potato breakfast pizza


In our house there are a few common phrases that are thrown around. For example, if you ask my two-year-old what she wants to eat she’ll answer with “Chinese food” or “pizza” nine times out of ten. That other one time the answer is usually “mashed potatoes”. She’s a weirdo, I know.

This morning I got out of bed, half asleep and definitely not ready to start the day. I made the mistake of asking Cocobaby what she wanted for breakfast. I had visions of eggs and bacon, she had plans for … pizza (cue dramatic music). Quite the quandary considering that most pizza recipes require time and labor, and at eight in the morning I had neither of those to spare.

But when that baby looks at me with those big brown eyes I can’t help myself. I have a secret weapon afterall, which is Painless Pizza Crust. It’s quick, it’s easy, and I can do it pre-coffee. I think I should win an award. This pizza was that good.
