Breakfast Pizza


I am forever thankful to my coworker for introducing me to the Stalkerville website. While the name is a bit odd and really does nothing to convey (at least to me, perhaps there is an inside joke I'm missing?) that it is a site full of healthy recipes I really do love going through the new submissions and check in at least weekly.

Paleo is still very new to me and I am simply fascinated by all of these people who created recipes before this was even popular. I mean, obviously they had to eat, but I can only imagine it is an awfully daunting task to think of recipes back when there was so little out there to go on.

Anyway, I saw this recipe and was very curious. A pizza crust made of sweet potatoes? Topped with baked eggs and tomatoes and ham? It looked simply beautiful and I was excited to try it out.

for the crust:
    • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled
    • 1/4 cup coconut flour
    • salt and pepper
for the pizza:
    • 1 tbsp. butter (Kerrygold for Paleo)
    • 2 cups baby spinach
    • 1 large garlic clove, minced
    • 5 eggs
    • cherry tomatoes, quartered
    • thin deli ham, roughly chopped
1. Preheat the oven to 375 and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. In a large bowl, shred the sweet potato then combine with the coconut flour, salt and pepper. The mixture should be wet, but able to be molded. Add more flour if necessary.
3. Place a 3 or 4 inch round cookie cutter on the prepared baking sheet. Fill with the sweet potato mixture, using your fingers to press down evenly and to the edges. Lift up the cookie cutter and repeat until sweet potato mixture is used up.
4. Bake for 15 minutes or until lightly golden brown.
5. Meanwhile, heat a skillet over medium high heat and melt the butter Add in the spinach and  garlic, cook until wilted.
6. Whisk together the eggs and add to the pan. (Add more butter beforehand if necessary) Use a spatula to lift up the set part of the eggs to move liquid underneath until scrambled.
7. Assemble the pizza by topping with the spinach-egg mixture than the quartered cherry tomatoes and chopped ham.

I opted not to add cheese to this and found it quite delightful. You could easily add in some shredded cheddar to the eggs if you really wanted cheese in this dish. I could not get over how incredibly good these were. The sweet potato crust is what impressed me the most and I am quite curious to see what other recipes I can use with this base.
