A great way to start your day

Breakfast Boats

I wasn't a big breakfast person until I had these! If I want them last minute I usually just buy the dough at any pizza place. But most of the time I make a large amount of homemade dough and have friends over for a weekend brunch! Either way its both very presentable and delicious.


2 lb Pizza Dough (Store Bought)
3 cups Shredded Mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup Crumbled Feta cheese
6 each Eggs (Optional)
1 stick salted butter

Homemade Dough
1 cup water (warm)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
2 tbsp oil + more for greasing bowl
3 1/2 cup unbleached flour, divided
1 tbsp active dry yeast

1. To proof yeast, sprinkle yeast and 1 teaspoon sugar over warm water in a small bowl; stir until yeast is dissolved. Let stand 5 minutes or until bubbly.
2. Place 3 cups flour and salt in large bowl; stir in yeast mixture and 2 tbsp oil, stirring until smooth, soft dough forms. Place dough on lightly floured surface; flatten slightly.
3. To knead dough, fold dough in half toward you and press dough away from you with heels of hands. give dough a quarter turn and continue kneading, using as much of the remaining 1/2 cup flour as needed to form a elastic ball.
4. Transfer to an oiled bowl and let rise in a draft free place for 1 - 1 1/2 hours until doubled. Punch down and let rise for 30 mins.


Preheat the oven to 350. In a medium bowl stir together the two cheeses. Divide dough into 6 even balls. Flatten or roll them out to 6 inch rounds. Place desired amount of cheese in an even layer (I do 1/2 cup), roll-in the edge enough to contain the cheese in and pinch ends together. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes until just beginning to brown. Take out and place egg in the ones you want, if your not doing eggs at all place back in oven and continue to bake for 5 more minutes or until lightly browned. Melted butter is the best part of these so put it on when they are still warm and enjoy.

Good morning, hope
