Breakfast Pizza & Topping Ideas

This post is really just for me to keep track of the pizza toppings that we have enjoyed the most. Since trying out Jim Lahey’s recipe – it’s fair to say that we’ve all become a bit infatuated with the simplicity of the no-knead dough recipe and enjoyed experimenting with a myriad of toppings. I will add to this post as we taste test our way through more medleys…and I would also appreciate any interesting suggestions? Duck, spring onion and hoisin is something I’d like to try soon, as well as sweet pizzas and a pizza Rosa (which I have heard is composed of the following – red onion, Parmigiano Reggiano, rosemary and pistachios…….. I don’t want to stray too far from the authentic Italian toppings and would never dream of ranch sauce or even BBQ chicken….I think as far as pizzas go, simplicity is often key.

Here is the link to the dough recipe on the blog –

      That’s really nice to hear, thank you and yes, we’ll forget about the pimped up toppings for now. Simplicity and quality is key.
