WHAT TIME IS IT??? …said in true Morris Day & The Time fashion.
Do you remember Morris Day and The Time? Or how about the song “The Bird”? You know, “America…have you heard? A brand new dance, it’s called the bird!” OK. If you don’t know this song, you should. It’s fun and catchy! See…
Out of 20 years of choreographed dance routines, that was my best dance number ever. My partner Michelle and I had the cutest gold and black striped outfits that had a tail like a bird with fishnets and black Fedora type hats. They were adorned with tons of gold sequins and you could see us coming from a mile away. We were seriously cool. Seriously.
So what brought Mr. Morris Day back to mind was breakfast! As I stood perusing the contents of the fridge, and gathering ingredients, I caught myself singing, “WHAT TIME IS IT?!?”
Breakfast time Mr. Morris Day. It’s breakfast time!
Marinated Arugula, Baby Bella & Sun Dried Tomato Breakfast Pizza
- 1 pizza crust, homemade or store bought (Click here for my pizza crust recipe)
- 8 oz. Ricotta Cheese, homemade or store bought (Click here for my Ricotta recipe)
- 1 tbsp. smoked Paprika
- 1 tsp. Garlic powder
- 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes
- 1/2 cup Baby Bella mushrooms, sliced
- 2-3 cups fresh Arugula
- 1/4 cup Balsamic vinegar
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 4 or 5 fresh eggs
- Salt & pepper to taste
On a piece of parchment paper or floured surface, roll dough to preferred thickness. Keep in mind, dough will double in height when baked. Brush crust lightly with olive oil. Spread a layer of Ricotta cheese on the crust. Sprinkle with Paprika and Garlic, then top with tomatoes and mushrooms. Set aside.
In a large bowl, drizzle Arugula with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, and season lightly with salt & pepper to taste. Massage Arugula until it is tender and all ingredients have been incorporated. Place on top of pizza.
Gently press indentions into the Arugula for each egg. Crack one egg into each indention. It’s ok if they run little outside the indention. Sprinkle with remaining Garlic Powder and Paprika.
Bake at 450 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until eggs have set.
Y’all, life is just too short to eat ugly food.
