This time on The CrossFit Kitchen, Nick Massie of PaleoNick.com figures out the only way to make pizza better: using crispy bacon as the crust. This breakfast pizza takes bacon and eggs to a whole new level, and a side of broccoli brings balance to the dish.
Massie’s first step is to toss the veggies with a drizzle of olive oil and his own Veggie Victory spice blend. The broccoli florets then go on a sheet pan to roast in the oven while he builds the pizza. The next step is to fry up a thick layer of bacon in a heavy cast-iron skillet and crack 12 eggs on top.
“Now as a culinary ninja, you’ll be able to crack all of them without breaking the yolk,” Massie says.
Once the bacon crisps and the eggs set, he chops the pizza into eight slices and serves with a side of roasted broccoli.
Massie is now the instructor for the CrossFit Specialty Course Culinary Ninja, which is designed to give you confidence in the kitchen while you learn the basics of balanced recipe development as informed by CrossFit’s nutrition principles.
