With a house full of constantly hungry kids, I’m always looking for ways to fill their bellies with wholesome and nutritious food. Admittedly, it’s not an easy task every morning and sometimes a Pop Tart and GoGo Squeeze is all my tired and hurried body can get on the table without being late to work. For mornings with a little more time, I recommend these pizzas. They’re really quite simple and not all that ingenious, but I swear, you tell kids that they’re having pizza breakfast and they’re all in. To make baking these even easier the morning of, cook the bacon and assemble the pizzas the night before, putting everything on except the egg. Morning of, crack the egg, throw them into the oven and watch your kids swoon.
