When I wrote my cookbook, SAVORY SWEET LIFE: 100 Simply Delicious Meals for Every Family Occasion (HarperCollins/William Morrow), I developed the recipes with busy people and families in mind. Most of the recipes have never been published online because I wanted to share a more complete collection of recipes from our family kitchen with personal notes and stories to inspire people to get cooking in the kitchen. My cooking philosophy has always been that cooking good food does not have to be complicated or take a lot of time. Yet, when I cook, I always try to create dishes people can proudly serve friends and guests that I know they will enjoy, feel fussed over, and have a memorable impact.
Most of the dishes in the cookbook are simple yet very flavorful because I like pairing bold contrasting ingredients together to create one memorable delicious meal. Some of the recipes are deconstructed classics re-assembled in a new way like my recipe for Breakfast Pizza.
By using flat bread pitas as the base, these breakfast pizzas can be made rather quickly. With the addition of eggs and bacon, it is my classic version of an American breakfast but in pizza form. Although I usually make this for breakfast, it makes a great lunch or dinner too.
I invite you to watch my latest PBS Digital Studio’s video on how to make these Breakfast Pizzas and hopefully you’ll be inspired to make your own version in your kitchen too! Enjoy!
- olive oil
- whole wheat flat bread (not to be mistaken for pita pockets)
- shredded Italian blend cheese (Mozzarella, Parmesan, Provolone)
- fresh parsley or green scallions
