Breakfast Pizza

Here’s a fantastic back-to-school recipe that the kids are sure to love and so will you! PIZZA! I’m not talking about the cardboard junk loaded with tons of cheese, meat, and grease. I’m talking about a light and fruity pizza that’sĀ a great breakfast option for kids on the go! To save a few steps in the morning, bake the crust the night before and have fresh fruit chopped. In the morning choose your “sauce” (which adds a bit of protein) and load on the fruit. It’s fresh, healthy and delicious, and there are endless topping combinations to try! This recipe can encourage independence in kids by having them make their own breakfast, it can be a fun family/bonding activity in the morning, and you can use it to educate kids about the importance of breakfast (growing bodies, increase alertness and thinking ability, happier mood). I promise this will become part of your weekly routine!

*Tip: If you bake the crust the night before, keep refrigerated until ready to eat.Ā

  1. Oh wow, this is such an awesome idea!! Now I really want to try this out and see how a banana mango pizza would turn out šŸ™‚

  2. How would this be if I left out the flax meal? I have all of the other ingredients and would like to avoid a trip to the store. BTW I love your blog, what’s your Buses name?

    • I think it would still turn out! Typically, I use flax meal because it acts as a binder in vegan/gluten-free baking and it adds omegas, however my baked oatmeal turns out fine without it. Give it a try! Either way it will still taste yummy šŸ˜‰

      • Thanks I’m going to try it out. I eat oatmeal all the time, but just the plain old cinnamon and sugar, I’ve never had baked oatmeal, I’ll have to try that after the pizza.

      • Switching it up is a great idea! We easily become robotic in our day to day routine and habits or we are satisfied with what we enjoy. I’m on a mission of trying new breakfast foods and switching it up as well!
