Bacon and Egg Breakfast Pizza
Well-prepared bacon and eggs can be surprisingly hard to come by overseas. Now that your veteran is home, serve up everyone's favorite breakfast foods on a pizza for a fun and delicious breakfast.
Ingredients:
1 prepared pizza crust
1 1/2 cups premade Alfredo sauce or homemade Sausage & Cream gravy
1 cup Italian blend cheese, grated
5-6 eggs
1/2 cup bacon, cooked and crumbled
Directions:
Before you begin: if using a storebought or fresh pizza dough, spread the dough onto a pizza pan sprinkled lightly with cornmeal and bake in an oven preheated to 400 degrees for 7 minutes.
To make the pizza: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Spread the Alfredo sauce on the pizza dough. Sprinkle with cheese. Use the back of a spoon to make 5-6 small wells in the sauce and cheese. Crack an egg into the center of each well. Sprinkle with bacon. Bake in oven for 8-15 minutes. less

While it probably doesn't rank with home and family, for service members stationed abroad, favorite foods properly prepared are sorely missed. When my father was stationed in Saudi Arabia during the first Gulf War, he longed for crispy bacon, and food that didn't need hot sauce to be palatable. In honor of Veteran's Day, here are 8 delicious and comforting foods for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert to make the veteran in your life even happier to be home. These are mostly old favorites, because in the end what makes a home-cooked meal something you dream of isn't that it's complicated, it's that it's home-cooked. -- By Elizabeth Stark
