Mexican Breakfast Pizza


Dear Valentine,

I can’t stop thinking about you.  You’ve left butterflies swimming in my stomach, and hearts dancing in my eyes.  I am counting the minutes till our hearts meet again.  I wanted to surprise you with a special breakfast, and I know that pizza is your favorite.  Since you are my warm and fuzzy I desired to do something sweet for you my dulce.  I give to you my Mexican Desayuno Pizza, made with cotija cheese, and jalapenos. Each time you tear into this pizza pie remember how much I adore you.  Thank you for putting a smile on my face, and holding my hand every chance you get.  I Love you Sweetheart!

Ingredients for Breakfast Pizza:

  • a batch of pizza dough – (to make your own click here, or buy some from a local pizzeria or the supermarket)
  • Olive oil
  • cornmeal
  • Grated Mozzarella Cheese
  • Grated Cotija Cheese
  • Sliced Jalapeno
  • fresh basil
  • cooked bacon or chorizo ( I used bacon on pizza pictured)
  • eggs


Rub a baking sheet lightly with olive oil an hour and half before your ready to bake.  Then pull dough out of the refrigerator to come to room temperature.   Then cover dough balls with plastic wrap while you wait for it to come to room temp.

45 minutes before ready to put your pizza in the oven, place a pizza stone on rack 1/4 of the way up from bottom of oven.  Preheat oven to 500 degrees fahrenheit.

Next fry your bacon  or chorizo and set to the side.

Take one of your dough balls and place on a lightly floured surfaced and shape into a disk.  Then continue to pull out into the desired size of your pizza by draping it over the back of your hands, and continue to rotate dough with the back of your hands in a clockwise motion with the aid of your thumbs. Then sprinkle your lightly olive oiled baking sheet with a pinch of cornmeal then lay pizza dough directly on top to form shape.  Continue to go around the edges forming a slightly raised rim with the tips of your fingers by pinching and gathering the dough. Then shape into a heart.


Once the heart shaped pizza dough is ready.  Place a tablespoon of olive oil on the inside of the heart and then spread it around the inside avoiding the rim.


Then top with 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese,  1/4 cup cotija cheese. Then place jalapenos and basil around the edge. Break two raw eggs in the middle and place pizza in oven for 9 to 11 minutes or until crust is golden!



Then pull out of oven and top with cooked bacon or chorizo.  Cook each pizza one at a time. Place your heart pizza on a tray with Orange Juice or champagne , and some fresh fruit ….. Go ahead serve your Valentine Breakfast in bed.

 Happy Valentine’s Day!
