If you need an excuse to eat pizza for breakfast, look no more! I’m making a breakfast pizza with a Sicilian twist! I chose the ingredients for this pizza based on the food I grew up eating in my big Sicilian family. When I visited Sicily I remember going to a pizzeria with my family where they put French fries on the pizza! To this day I think it’s strange but there must be something about it that keeps people coming. Rather than French fries, I decided to roast some thinly sliced herbed potatoes the way my dad always likes to make them. Check out what I put on the rest of it!

FUN FACT:  What does a Sicilian style pizza normally look like? It’s always a thick crust but has very little ingredients. Usually tomatoes rather than sauce and select other herbs or a cheese or two.

Instructions
  1. Begin by peeling and slicing the potatoes, “scallop style”, in thin discs. Place on lined baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika and dried oregano. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. DO NOT cook completely as they will continue to cook once they are on the pizza. Once your potatoes are done and out of the oven, raise the temperature to 400 degrees.

  2. Roll out dough on pizza pan. Drizzle with olive oil and use a pastry brush to spread all over, especially on crust. This will give a nice golden crisp. Then spread ricotta on base of pizza.
  3. Once your potatoes are baked and slightly cooled, add those all over the top. Followed by tomatoes and prosciutto.

  5. Your now 400-degree oven should be heated up and you will place your pizza in the oven for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and carefully crack 4 eggs in four corners of the pizza. Pop back in the oven for another 15 minutes until egg whites are solid and crust is golden brown.

  7. Remove from oven and sprinkle with more oregano and thyme. You can add a few more dollops of ricotta around the pizza while it’s still hot. Slice and enjoy that runny egg!
