    A local donut place does breakfast pizza & it is way yummy! They sell by the slice or whole pizza. not sure about the recipe using spinach. Kids will eat raw spinach, but not cooked.

    the hospital i work at has a breakfast pizza in the cafeteria every once and again. i quite enjoy it. seems like it has scrambled eggs, diced tomatoes, bacon, mushrooms and onion. sometimes it also has green pepper if they have them on hand.

    very tasty!

    Spinach is super good on pizza, and hard boiled egg yolk is a good combination with spinach. I hadn't thought of putting egg on pizza, but I can imagine how that combination would work.
