Chef Mickey's Breakfast Pizza

Bringing the Magic home with a Breakfast Pizza Recipe from Chef Mickey's at Disney's Contemporary Resort

The smell of frying bacon and fresh biscuits baking is in the air.

There's a whooshing sound as the monorail goes by and kids are giggling.

A giant Mouse with a chefs hat is stoping by tables with his pals Pluto, Minnie, Donald, and Goofy.

Thunder rumbles and I am brought back to realty.

I'm not in Florida dinning with Mickey and his pals I'm in Minnesota on a stormy morning drinking coffee out of my Donald mug and daydreaming of being in the World. On this somewhat dreary morning I decided some Disney magic was in order and I had just the thing to bring it into our house. A while ago I had purchased a cookbook entitled Cooking with Mickey and the Disney Chefs the contents - recipes from all over Disney World and Disneyland. So I pulled it out to see if they had any recipes from Chef Mickey's. Lo and behold they did and Chef Mickey's Breakfast Pizza sounded like the ticket to brighten this stormy morning.

Looking over the recipe it looked super easy expect for one thing. It called for a 12-in precooked pizza shell. Precooked pizza shell?!? Nuts to that! That's not how the Bird's roll. Who has the time to drive to the grocery store for one of those when it literary takes 3 minutes to make your own?!? With that being said, if precooked pizza shells is how you roll feel free to use one just know this - a homemade biscuit dough is so much better. So I switched that up and made my own biscuit pizza dough which was the prefect flaky, crisp base.

Now I realize that not all of readers of this here blog are huge Disney fans such as Jason and myself so I should probably explain what Chef Mickey's is...

Here we go (taking a big breath)

Centered in the atrium of one of the coolest hotels I have ever been in is this delightful restaurant where you can dine with Mickey and his pals. They are all dressed in chef uniforms and circle the dinning room stoping for pictures and other shenanigans (such as Pluto pretending to eat my Mom's head when I was younger). They have both a breakfast and dinner buffet which lots of options including pizza for breakfast! It is a super fun energetic place to enjoy a meal and I can not wait to bring my future kids there!

Anyways back to this breakfast pizza I made. The crust was flaky and crisp and the toppings of eggs and cheese where super creamy and delish. In the future I would maybe add some onion, green or red bell pepper and maybe even breakfast sausage or crumbled bacon. That's the great thing about pizza you can completely change things up depending on your mood or even split it up and create a different section for each family member.

So in conclusion you need to make this next weekend. No I don't mean add it to you ever increasing pile of "to make someday" recipes. Add the needed ingredients to your shopping list this week. Bring them home and make this for you and your family's brunch next weekend. Throw on some Disney music and bring home some of that magic you feel while down in the world if you in to that thing. And if you not who cares? Throw on some head banging metal, jazz, rock, pop whatever floats your boat just make a nice brunch for your family and enjoy a meal together. You won't be sorry you did. "I wish we didn't have more family meals said no one ever!"

Here's how the Breakfast Pizza making went down...

The Process

Step 1

Preheat your oven to 425° I like using a pizza stone so I put that in the oven before I started it. You could use a baking sheet or a pizza pan instead.

Step 2

Get your dough going. Put the flour, baking powder and salt into the bowl of a food processor. Pulse a few times to get the it mixed together. Then add in the diced up cold (this is very important) butter. Pulse a few more times until the the mixture starts looking like course sand. Opener' up and add in your milk. Then pulse or use the dough button until it comes together into a nice smooth dough. If you don’t have a food processor you could do this in a bowl using a pastry blender to cut int he butter, then mix in the milk and knead until you get a nice smooth dough.

Step 3

If your using a pizza stone sprinkle some cornmeal on a pizza peel or whatever apparatus your using to make the pizza on. If you using a baking sheet or pan assemble the pizza directly on that. Gently stretch and pat the dough out into a circle or square (whatever your preference, me I like circles). I made mine into a 12' circle. All done? Cool lets move onto the toppings.

Step 4

In bowl whisk together the 2 eggs and the cream. Add in the shredded cheese and mix together. Pour this mixture over the crust and smooth out leaving about 1/2 inch crust around the edge. Then grinded some fresh pepper all over the top of the pizza.

Step 5

Place the whole darn thing in the oven and bake until the crust is brown around the edges and the cheese mixture is set and starting to brown, about 15 mins. Cut into wedges and serve hot with some fruit and a nice big mug of coffee or orange juice.
