You’ll never have to ask me twice if I want pizza for breakfast, but make it with delicious wholesome ingredients that will fill you full of good stuff for the day? Heck yes! This Huevos Rancheros Breakfast Pizza full of protein and veggies is the perfect solution to your breakfast woes. Or lunch. Or dinner. Hah!
It’s back to school season hereabouts and even though we homeschool year round, something about the middle of August is when life starts firing on all cylinders. Clubs are back in session, sports in the evenings, and of course the day starts actually getting shorter (what the heck, nature?). In light of all this, I’m always looking for a way to make meals easier. Especially breakfast. P.S. I am not a morning person.
We love making breakfast sandwiches ahead and popping them in the freezer, or big batches of sweet potato sausage hash, but today I felt like doing something a little different. We love pizza, we love eggs, we love salsa. Oh my goodness, Huevos Rancheros Pizza with scrambled eggs it is then! We added some Horizon® Organic milk to our eggs to make them rich and fluffy, and used a yummy restaurant style salsa instead of traditional red sauce.
A little milk, salt, and pepper in your scrambled eggs brings them to the next level! If you’re like me and occasionally (okay, more than occasionally) forget to grab milk – then you can use Horizon® shelf stable milk like we do! It’s perfect for when you’re out of milk in the fridge, and also for school lunches or on the go. We always bring them on road trips too!
It’s easy to adjust the heat level to your family’s tastes – I like to use a medium heat salsa that’s well blended so it spreads like sauce. We pile it thick on so every bite of pizza is full of veggies. If you’re making this for a crowd that includes picky eaters, serve with hot sauce or extra salsa on the side!
Horizon® Organic Aseptic/Shelf Stable Milk: Great for lunchboxes, snacks, travel and more, Horizon® Organic shelf-stable milk boxes are a perfect alternative to juice boxes. Keep the goodness of Horizon® Organic milk on hand in the pantry. Special packaging locks in the delicious taste without refrigeration. Just chill to enjoy, or use in your daily cooking, baking or smoothie-making. We grabbed ours along with a half gallon of whole milk at the local Walmart!
Horizon® Organic Shredded Cheese: Make any dish better with a sprinkle of organic goodness! Shredded Cheddar, Mexican Blend, Monterey Jack and Mozzarella. Great for pizzas, pastas, omelets and more. Available in 6-ounce bags. We used Mexican blend cheese in this recipe!
Fresh cilantro adds a beautiful finishing touch in both color and flavor. Want to add even more? How about some sweet peppers, mushrooms, sliced onion, olives, or fresh tomato! I’m serving to kids, so we hid the veggies under the cheese (stealth mom move!), but if I was preparing it for adults, we’d pile on alllll the vegetables!
One of my favorite parts of this recipe is that it can be made ahead so breakfast is that much easier. Prepare a couple pizzas at the beginning of the week, slice them up and toss them in the fridge. Grab what you want in the morning and warm the slices up in the toaster oven or microwave. You could even freeze the slices if you won’t use them right away.
