Pizza for brunch

A few weeks ago, when I had nothing in the fridge apart from a few veg, I remembered how to make pizza. Life saver.

Basic recipe is eight ounces of water, two teaspoons of dried yeast, some slurps of olive oil, and around a pound of flour. I say around a pound as I have no scales.

I also spent years weighing bacon and cheese so, I can guess weight. Plus, dough eventuality reaches its own equilibrium.

Hugh has posted a new challenge, and for once, having just eaten brunch, I decided to play.

We eat brunch a lot.

I had a quarter of a pizza left, he wanted chips with his, so I peeled a potato and whacked the chips in the oven (just in case anyone thinks I buy oven ready chips), added more mushrooms to the pizza, and cheese to his part, and shazzam, brunch, plus salad of onion, tomato, cucumber, olives.

When I said slurps of olive oil, I meant two ounces. That’s a lot of oil. It also means you can reheat it the next day without it getting dry. It was just as yummy today.

Pizza costs at least eight quid. Why pay that when I can make better? Total ingredients on there were onion, garlic, olives, tomato, mushrooms, green chillies, fresh thyme from the finca, and two types of cheese on his half.

I loathe conventional breakfasts, it’s the hardest meal of the day, so brunch suits me down to the ground … now … what to cook for tea?

  1. Looks very yummy. I wouldn’t consider pizza for breakfast, but I’d join you in sharing one for bunch.

    Thanks for playing along.

    Best wishes,

  3. I love pizza for breakfast/brunch, and indeed eat it most Saturdays after Friday night pizza dinner… sometimes homemade, sometimes brought in since we found Rocketboy that’s on the same foodie wavelength πŸ™‚
    Mmm mushrooms and olives: my favourite pizza toppings.

    • Pizza is a classic like curry, always great the day after. Normally I wouldn’t reheat, but the dough I make stands it, and it is just as good yet again. We must have spent a couple of hours saying how good it was! I’ve not used mushrooms for a while, so I’ve had a blitz on them. And thrown all over a pizza? Wonderful, just delicious. I think the trick with pizza is sticking to a few ingredients, so it doesn’t taste samey. I suspect we could both have eaten twice as much for brunch.

  4. Oh gosh! I would want this for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner and look like a Tellytubby by the end of the week! LOL! You have all my favourite toppings on there for sure and yes, I do like the cheese part as well. πŸ˜€

    The photo you took is so stunning – and now I’m hungry. Shame on you! LOL!

    • Mmmm, truth is it was exceeding delicious. We were talking about it hours afterwards! I joke not. It’s really odd to say, that was just gorgeous, endlessly, and it was. I don’t even know why it worked. But it did. His half gets mozzarella and grated Spanish hard cheese. Me, I leave that alone. Each to our own. Photo was mediocre, not good in close up, but ok for this post.
      The lesson is though, always put twice as much topping on as you think you need!
      And, I am shit hot at making dough πŸ™‚

  5. […] Every Picture Tells One took a photo of a beautiful homemade pizza. Pizza for breakfast? Β No, not quite, this was a pizza for brunch. Β It looked very mouth-watering but I did wonder if I would be allowed a glass of red wine with it at that time of the day? […]
