Caprese Breakfast Pizza

Caprese Breakfast Pizza

Making a breakfast pizza has been on my to do list for longer than I’d like to admit. I finally got around to making one for lunch recently and I am SO glad I did. The flatbread was a bit crisp, the cheese was gooey, the tomatoes were sweet and juicy, and the yolk was perfectly runny. I really loved the fresh basil and the heat from the crushed red pepper flakes – YUM! This was my kind of lunch (breakfast, brunch, or dinner), and I may just have to make it again tomorrow.
