Ingredients: Two cups plain white flour, 2 tsp baking powder, water, 4 eggs, smoked bacon, mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, 2 pork sausages (optional)

  1. Mix flour, baking powder and water together in a bowl until you form a dough. Lightly dust the surface with flour and roll out the dough to your desired thickness and shape.
  2. Place the rolled pizza dough onto a prepared baking sheet and top with shredded cheese. Crack the 4 eggs into each corner of the pizza and arrange the bacon around the eggs before topping with tomatoes.
  3. Bake for about 8 to 10 minutes or until golden.

Go all out by adding chunks of pre-cooked sausages to get the real breakfast of champions!
