Goodness gracious it is Wednesday already. Short week!
Behold, the breakfast pizza.
Do you ever think of a recipe idea and find yourself racing to the kitchen to make it as soon as possible?
That was me last night.
I was looking at my PB & J Glo Bites and Pumpkin Spiced Glo Bites recipes and the idea of making a breakfast pizza suddenly struck me. Not just any pizza though, a peanut butter, jam, and banana breakfast pizza!
If it worked, I knew I would have a fun recipe to share with you that would be delicious, kid-friendly, and fun to throw together on the weekend.
And who doesn’t love leftover pizza for a quick weekday breakfast now and then? ;)
Peanut Butter, Jam, & Banana Breakfast Pizza
- 2 cups whole grain spelt flour
- 1/2 cup Earth Balance buttery spread, warmed
- 1/4 cup Sucanat (or brown sugar might work)
- 1 large banana, sliced
- 1/2 cup Almond Milk (adapted from 1/4 cup which was an error)
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- 3/4 cup jam
- 1/3-1/2 cup peanut butter
- Cacao Nibs (optional)
- Coconut, to garnish (optional)
Directions: Preheat oven to 400F. Grease a pie pan. In a large bowl mix together the spelt flour, salt, sucanat, and cinnamon. Now pour in milk and warmed Earth Balance. Mix. Take batter and spread evenly with fingers into the pie pan. Now grab your jam and spread over the crust mixture. Add sliced banana and optional cacao nibs. Pop into the oven for 25 minutes at 400F. Remove and cool for 15 minutes. Pipe on peanut butter, slice and serve. You can also chill it and serve it cold or try popping it in the freezer for a cold treat (just let it defrost for about 5 minutes first)!
Note: This pizza is very sweet! If you want to make a lighter pizza, you can experiment with using less jam and peanut butter. The amounts above are just a guideline.
First, make your protein-packed 100% whole grain spelt crust! The dough tastes like a healthy sugar cookie. :) Yummers.
Squish the dough all in there with your fingers. Don’t worry it doesn’t have to be perfect!
Now take your jam…you could have fun experimenting with different flavours of jam.
And spread it all around…(it helps if you let it sit at room temperature to soften!)
Cover with bananas and optional cacao nibs…or if you are feeling crazy, chocolate chips.
And bake at 400F for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and cool in pan for about 15 minutes.
Now place peanut butter in a baggie, trim a small hole in the corner, and ‘pipe’ onto the pie.
This is magical.
Serve warm, chilled in the fridge, OR frozen like a DQ Treatzza Pizza!
I tried it hot, warm, chilled, and frozen and my favourite way to eat it was chilled straight from the fridge! Just like leftover pizza. :)
Have fun trying out different kinds of nut butters too. You could even make a nut-free version using sunflower seed butter. I really want to try this with Barney Butter but we don’t have it in Canada. It is probably for the best. The last time I had some Eric kept asking me if I wanted any toast with my Barney Butter. ;) Who needs toast when you have Barney Butter?
You could also try making a FRUIT pizza and loading it with all kinds of sliced fruit…how delicious would that be? I’m thinking mangoes, banana, pineapple, strawberries, blueberries, cherries, etc.
I also want to say a huge THANK YOU for your support with the Tastespotting Portabella Playoff Challenge! My Stuffed Pizza recipe took home gold. Thanks everyone! :)
Oh my goodness!! This looks awesome. I love the idea of freezing it too. Its like dessert for breakfast, and really, theres nothing better than that!
You had me with the blog post title! Pizza for breakfast, YES!
I’ve heard of dessert pizza, but breakfast pizza is brilliant! I have a brunch pot-luck this weekend and now I know what to bring.
Drool…. loving this! Just another excuse to eat some PB :) Not that I ever need an excuse!
Yum pizza for breakfast!! I know what you mean about degrees. I feel that way about my undergrad degree in psych but I really cannot wait to get my law degree. Blood, sweat and tears really went into that one!
I love this idea. Too bad I eat my PB&J (with sliced apples) wrap every day for lunch. Maybe one weekend I’ll have to give it a try!
Oh my goodness… you’ve done it again Angela, genius recipe! I can even see this served as a fun dessert when friends come over.
Now I’m wondering where my diploma is… throughout office and house moves, it could be anywhere! Glad to know that there is a possibility to order a new one, just in case!
OMG! Your breakfast pizza looks amazing!!! I am running off to pick up the ingredients immediately after work:)
OMG – I am going to have to try this with Barney Butter, you should get a friend to send you some in Canada, it is too good to live without!!
I saw this on Diner, Drive-Ins, and Dives before!! They were doing the pizza joint, obviously, and one of their main hits was the PB & J pizza. A lot of people thought it’d be gross, but honestly..how can you go wrong? Yum!
Heh heh your such a creative little chicka!
this looks amazing and gorgeous. i love your pictures.
you’ve been busy in the kitchen lately!
Wow, another Oh-dear-I-have-to-make-this recipe, this looks gorgeous!
Oh my, I will have to try this !
This looks incredible. And it is actually a perfect breakfast on the go!!
that pizza looks like the most delicious thing I have ever seen. I must try this soon! God Bless your brain for coming up with it :)
DELISH!!! I am making it tonight so it will be perfect for a grab and go in the morning!!! Cant wait!! Love your site and congrats!!!
Hi! I’m not much of a baker so I have a silly question that I hope you’ll answer for me. When you say that I can substitute a mix of whole wheat and white flour, what would the ratio be? 1 cup of each? Or more of one than the other? This pizza looks delish and I really want to try it but I don’t have spelt flour. Thanks!
You could probably do a ratio of 50/50….heck even 100% whole wheat might work too!
You might need 2-4 tbsp LESS of white/wheat flour because spelt often requires a bit 2 tbsp more per cup.
Sweet breakfast pizza, that is genius!! :)
loving your recipes!
Holy Moly!!! That looks like one of the best breakfasts’ EVER!!! I can’t wait to try it.
I just bought Sucanat today – you’ve inspired me with your recipes!
holy cow, I must make this!
YUM! This looks great…I love thinking of new recipes and looking forward to making them ; ) We made a almond maple butter fig flatbread the other weekend…one recipe I could not want to make nor eat!
That pizza looks great! I think the kids would love it for breakfast… Maybe if I get up early I could whip it up! Or even better program my oven to turn on in the morning….
I’ve made pb&j pizza before but always with a pizza crust. This crust looks so much better!
OMG! That looks sooooo good!!! I fear I cannot make it…. I would eat the whole thing. *drool.
This is genius!! Love it! v creative :) I love it when ideas come to you like that!
OH ANGELA! UNREAL! Wouldn’t this be perfect for a slumber party? If only we could rewind…+
I made the breakfast pizza this morning and it was DELICIOUS. I can’t have spelt so I used 50/50 brown/white rice flour and added a couple tablespoons of ground flax. I also used apricot preserves. It turned out so yummy!
This is another thing that I plan on saving and making eventually. It looks great.
i read this this morning and it is all i have thought about since, looks so good, going to go buy what i need after work and make it this evening, hope it turns out as nice as yours looks!
Hello. I would love to know how many servings this makes. I’m having a Big and lil Chef class and I’m using this recipe to show to families that our looking for fun, healthy alternatives :P
yum yum yum.
how many calories is this?
Thought you might enjoy this kid friendly recipe;)
** yoink ** – think i’ll be stealing this to try the weekend! It looks delicious :)
Yuck! This looks absolutely disgusting. Okay, I have to disclose that I’m European and this peanut butter/jam thing just grosses me out. I love some of your other recipes. I currently have the lentil loaf in the oven.
i am going to try this recipe… but i’m skipping the jam and using apple butter… i’m already drooling. (we eat pb & ab w banana on toast and pancakes already… so sure to be a hit.) i never tried this spelt stuff….
How many servings is this?
This was perhaps the most delicious breakfast I’ve ever had. I love PB&J, so naturally when I saw this I knew I had to make it. The crust was awesome! And while it was REALLY rich and sweet, I knew it was pretty good for me too! We often have two pieces of toast with PJ & J for breakfast, so this was a much yummier version of that. We cut it in fourth and each had a slice, and then split another before regretfully putting the last slice in the fridge for the next morning. So full…but so good!
Hi, is there anyway you could post the nutritional information for the breakfast pizza?
This is a really good tip particularly to those fresh to the blogosphere.
Brief but very accurate info… Thanks for sharing this one.
A must read post!
OML that is yummy
GOODNESS this is very yummy
