Ahh, New Year’s Eve! For all of my thirty-something years, I have broken NYE down to two experiences: Completely overrated or a complete blast.
I will say: last year was one of my favorite New Year’s Eves. Beside the fact that I managed to stay up past midnight, our friends had an engagement party at a club (no, not a nightclub.. a classy members only club). I danced too long in my new Jimmy Choos and consumed FAR too much alcohol. The Jimmy’s survived.
This year, we are watching Romantic comedies and drinking wine from Napa. You never know where you’ll end up on NYE.
Nonetheless, wherever you are you will probably consume too much bubbly and you will probably need a hangover cure that can feed an army.
Which brings me to pizza.
Pizza is a wonderful thing. It’s best fresh from the oven. If you’re lazy, you can call up a 24hr delivery joint and have it delivered to your door. It’s the $1 slice you buy when the twenty-something self leaves the bar after last call and is in dire need of some food (pff, never happened *eye roll*).
So although cold pizza from the night before is delicious for breakfast, I wanted to combine my favorite breakfast item, Heuvos Racheros, with my love of pizza to create this breakfast pizza.
Yup B r e a k f a s t P i z z a.
You. Are. Welcome.
This recipe is great because it’s simple. You can use whatever toppings you have in the fridge and, to make it real simple, buy the pizza dough premade at the local grocer.
If you think you’ll be too out of sorts to make the dough the morning of, you can opt to pre-make the dough the night before.
You can find my pizza dough recipe here to get started. This recipe will make two large pizzas. Perfect for those party-goers who crashed on your couch.
Happy New Year!
If you plan on making pizza dough, do this first. Recipe here
If you would like to make my fresh salsa for a topping, the recipe is here. Make it in advance or use a store bought salsa.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F
For the Tomatillo Sauce
Place items on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Drizzle jalapenos, garlic, tomatillos, and onions with olive oil and bake until slightly browned.
Place items in a blender with 2 tablespoons of chopped cilantro, the juice of one lime and salt and pepper to taste. Blend until fully pureed. Set aside in fridge until ready to use.
For the Pizza
Cut pizza dough in half and spread each onto a pizza pan or baking sheet. Pre bake pizza dough in oven until it just starts to change color. (Approx 10 minutes depending on oven).
For the Toppings
Place an even layer of refried beans onto the pre-baked pizza. Then add an even layer of your tomatillo sauce. This acts as your “tomato sauce” would on a traditional pizza. Next, add mozzarella cheese, black beans and a very thin layer of salsa. Top with sliced jalapeno. Crack 3 eggs onto the toppings in random areas. Careful not to break the egg yolk
Bake in oven until the egg whites turn from transparent to white and cheese has melted through. You can cook 5-10 minutes longer if you don’t like a runny egg.
Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Top with sour cream, cilantro, more salsa and avocado.
