Gluten free, Corn free, soy free Breakfast Pizza's

Okay, so who here during their gluten eating days, loved cold pizza for breakfast?

Show of hands? Come on!

Yeah, me either. If I was eating pizza it needed to be warm, it needed to be cheesy, and mostly it needed to be good. Sadly, gluten-free pizza, if good when it is freshly baked, losses it je ne se que, when reheated. So pizza for breakfast is out of the question. Or is it?

How many of you shop at Trader Joe's?

It really is the best store. I am physically in love with their Brown Rice Tortillas. They are whole grain, gluten-free, soy-free, and corn-free. I eat them all the time. I bake them off as tortilla chips, make wraps, my mom makes rice tortilla chicken enchiladas with them. But my favorite way to eat them is baked into a  . . . BREAKFAST PIZZA!! Oh my goodness these things are delicious. Brown, crunchy, and beautiful! Breakfast Pizza's are super easy to make and very healthy.

Plus, you can add any leftovers you have. Making it healthy, delicious, and partly "green".
