Breakfast Pizza

Excuse me for a moment  while I do a little proud mama bragging.  Today I’m not going to share my latest recipe, but instead I’m going to share a recipe by a budding young chef. This chef has been in the kitchen since he was 3. He has great knife skills, is confident and loves to try new foods.  He also happens to be my son who just competed in his first cooking competition.

It was a small local contest open to kids in grades 4-8. They contestants were challenged to create a healthy and nutritious breakfast or lunch entrée or snack, using any combination of fresh fruit, vegetables, whole grains, healthy fats and natural sweeteners.

Will’s submission was a breakfast pizza.  The inspiration for this recipe came from his uncle who made a version of it for us this summer while down visiting.  Will took the idea and made it his own by adding his favorite vegetables, cheeses and seasonings.  It is a super simple yet yummy recipe and is perfect for beginner cooks.

The recipe got him to the semi-finals and gave him the opportunity to cook the recipe at our local Williams-Sonoma store.  He didn’t make it on to the final round, but he did an outstanding job and we couldn’t be more proud of him.  He was confident, poised and did an excellent job of demonstrating his cooking skills – what more could a mom want!

    Love it. It’s great to see kids taking the initiative to cook vs. just going to the local fast food to grab a bite. I hope he continues with this as he gets older!
