I'm going to be honest with you. My husband and I rarely have time to ourselves. We've moved so much during the first few years of our son's life that we never got close enough to people to ask them to babysit. And now we are just kind of used to it and still don't ask anyone to babysit. It feels weird to ask someone to watch him. But when our parents are in town they often offer to watch Ash for a bit so we can have a date. Recently my husband celebrated his 30-something birthday. While my parents were in town, I took him to a nice resort to enjoy lots of food and some massages. One of the delicious and unique foods I had was at a wonderful restaurant I'd wanted to try for some time, Mash'd. They were serving brunch when we visited so I ordered their Breakfast Pizza. It's a crispy and light pizza dough, topped with cheese, avocado, jalapeno and cilantro. When I got home I couldn't stop thinking about it, so I decided to create my own copycat of this flavorful dish. The sharpness of the white cheddar and the spiciness of the jalapeno are cut and mellowed by both the creamy avocado and the oils released from the cheese and from the crust. The cilantro adds a freshness to the entire pizza.
Copycat Breakfast Pizza Makes: 4 slices 1 1/2 Tablespoons olive oil 15 ounces pizza dough (store-bought or homemade) 9 ounces sharp white cheddar, shredded 2 avocados, sliced 1 large jalapeno, seeds removed & sliced 1/3 cup chopped cilantro 1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare a 9-inch by 9-inch ceramic baking dish by coating the bottom with the olive oil. Spread out evenly over the bottom. (If you don't have a ceramic dish, you can use any dish you have that can withstand a 450 degree oven, but please note that your baking time may be different as different materials conduct heat differently.) 2. Next, press the dough into the pan and push out to the sides so the bottom is covered. Allow the dough to rest for 30 minutes. 3. Top the dough with cheese. Place in the oven for 30 - 35 minutes. You want the crust crispy and the cheese melty and browned. 4. Top with avocado slices, jalapeno and cilantro. Enjoy immediately! #pizza #recipe #dinner #breakfast #cheese #cook #cooking #pizzanight
