Skinny brunch week continues with, probably, my favorite recipe of the bunch. This easy breakfast pizza needs to be on every single brunch menu ever in the history of the world. It’s legitimately that good.

Now, you’re probably like “Hey Claire. There’s cheese, and sausage, and bacon on this B, how the heck is it healthy!” And then to which I respond “Great observation dear fellow. You are right, except here’s what you don’t know. The cheese is part-skim (half the fat), the sausage is VEGAN (NO FAT) and the bacon is low-sodium!” And then you hug me and we rejoice together as we stuff piece after piece of this delicious breakfast pizza into our mouths.

What, that’s not how it played out for you? FOR SHAME. Vegetarian sausage (or Gimme Lean) is the best stuff in the world. It has the flavor, the texture and the look of sausage, just without any fat. At all. Okay, so maybe like a fraction of fat. I don’t know, I’m not a food scientist. I’ve used it before and always wonder why I don’t use it more often.

egg pizza

If you’re squeevy about putting an egg on top, don’t! You can forgo it all together. I just wanted the egg on top because I’m addicted to runny yolk. It’s absurd. I’d drink runny yolk if I could. Too far? Fine. It’s not like I said I’m going all Gaston in this piece and drinking glasses of raw egg. Now that? Would be weird.
