Food & Drink

I'm Chris - or Christopher - or Mr. Dean - or Master Christopher - or just plain Sir. I'm a self-professed foodie. I love to cook and I take great pleasure in all things edible. My husband and I are relatively new to Portland, Oregon and are enjoying our culinary explorations of the area!

Breakfast Pizza

Pizza isn’t generally something you think of for breakfast – unless you’re in college and it’s still sitting in the box from the night before.  But a few years ago I started buying pizza dough at Whole Foods and we would make our own pizzas for dinner.  And then one day I thought I’d give a breakfast version a try.  We’ve done all kinds of toppings on our breakfast pizzas, including sausage, peppers, ham, and anything else you can think of.  I figured this was a perfect breakfast for the day after my birthday – fattening.

For this pizza, I cooked some bacon, sauteed some mushrooms and also some onions.  And we had a pile of cheese options.  For mine:  tomato sauce, grated parmesan cheese, mushrooms, onions, bacon, shredded mozzarella, 2 duck eggs, black pepper, small amount of grated Botarga.  Great way to start the day!!


  1. I may do this tomorrow. I have all kinds of left over cheeses and breakfast meats. Still no duck eggs. I think the kiddos would get into it.

  2. Did you make a breakfast pizza? I turned my coworker on to the idea because I figured her 4 year old would love it too.
