Where to find tasty breakfast pizza in the Kansas City metro? Fat City has five potential choices for you, and we're always hungry to hear about more.
5. Figlio: No, this Italian restaurant on the Country Club Plaza doesn't serve a breakfast pizza, but it does offer delicious wood-fired pizza for breakfast during the hours of its Sunday brunch, 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. But if you wanted to indulge yourself and spoon some scrambled eggs on top of your pizza, go for it.
4. The Clock Tower Bakery & Cafe: This intelligent bakery -- owned by two former librarians -- in old downtown Overland Park serves breakfast every day (except Sunday) beginning at 6:30 a.m. A favorite dish here is the breakfast pizza, served throughout the day, made with scrambled eggs, Swiss cheese and a choice of ham or mushrooms. It's baked to order on a pizza crust.
3. Ingredient in Lawrence: Interesting, the Leawood and Country Club Plaza locations don't offer a breakfast pizza on their breakfast menus, but the Lawrence location (at 947 Massachussetts) serves a great one: eggs, cheese and your choice of three toppings. You can request more than three, but the additional choices are 75 cents each.
2. Eggtc.: This breakfast-and-lunch restaurant is operated by the owner of the Minsky's Pizza next door, so naturally it serves a great breakfast pizza. It's a hefty number, too, topped with chorizo gravy, Monterey jack cheese, scrambled egg, diced tomatoes, green peppers, and red onions.
1. Blue Grotto:
This popular Brookside pizzeria serves brunch on Saturday and Sunday
from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and has two variations on the breakfast-pizza
concept: a Panne Frattau constructed on a flatbread crust with pecorino
cheese, fresh tomatoes and an egg, sunny-side up; there's also a Pizza
Benedict on a pizza crust base with a poached egg, prosciutto cotto and
very silky Hollandaise sauce.
