dia de st. patty

Who, me? Confused?

Ok, as far as St. Patrick’s Day food is concerned, I have three things that I’m interested in.

Guinness, Guinness cake, and …

Ok, two things.

My dad always used to cook corned beef when I was little, and I hated the smell. I love reubens, though, so the other day when I was at the grocery store I called Crockett and asked if he wanted corned beef.

He pointed out that it is not healthy and we are trying to be sort of healthy.

I bought cabbage instead, to make suspiciously delicious cabbage.

We haven’t made it yet.

We’ll see how much Guinness I consume between now and dinner.

I woke up with green eggs and ham on my mind, instead.

But then I remembered that green eggs and ham are disgusting.

So I made breakfast pizza instead.

Breakfast Pizza

1 pizza worth of pizza dough (I used a version of my recipe from the other day with the addition of olive oil and whole wheat, but again, use whatever you like (including purchased dough))

3-5 eggs, depending on pizza size
Two small or one large tomato
Half a ball of fresh mozzarella cheese
Olive oil
Dried basil
Salt
Pepper
Shaved romano

1) Heat the oven to 425.
2) Roll out your pizza dough, only pretty thin, not super thin.
3) Brush the dough with olive oil and slice your tomatoes. Lay the tomatoes out over the dough, leaving a space for each egg that you plan on adding. Slice the mozzarella and evenly distribute (you can cover the egg spaces with mozz if you want – the tomatoes will just lift the eggs up and they’ll get everywhere). Sprinkly lightly with salt and heavily with pepper. Stick it in the oven for 9 minutes.
4) Remove the pizza from the oven and use your fingers or the back of a spoon to create depressions in the dough where you plan to put the eggs. Crack an egg into each depression, sprinkle with dried basil, and  cook for another 7 minutes. (If you want the eggs runny, cook for 10 the first time and 6 the second Рfirm, 8 minutes without eggs and 8 minutes with. 16 minutes total, ok?).
5) Sprinkle with the shaved romano.

Eat.

With strawberries, if you have four pounds of them.
