Pancetta and Gruyere Breakfast Pizza – simplicity at its best. Simple ingredients create this wonderful and delicious breakfast pizza.
As I sit here to write this post and look at these pizza pictures I remember the first time I ever had pizza. I was about 11 or 12 years old at a restaurant in Timisoara with my family. This was when Romania used to be communist and foods like this were not common. Eating at restaurants was not a common thing for us. Back then we had rations on oil and sugar, so it was not often my mom would indulge in baking. Baking was for special occasions like the holidays. But that day was a summer day and one thing I miss about my old country are the restaurant patios and the people. People everywhere. People walking to work, going for a stroll or visiting with friends and family. On that day we all sat outside on the patio and my father ordered pizza for all of us. I remember we all got individual deep dish pizzas. I was curious because I had never had pizza before but had heard so much about it. On that day I fell in love with pizza.
