It's a breakfast pizza throwdown! Wherefore art thou, Bobby Flay?

I've counted on Fong's topping-laden breakfast slices, especially the Godzilla slathered in sausage pepper gravy, to be my breakfast pizza of choice [see blog post]. But of late Something Italian took a leap of faith and now offers a meat trio pizza – ham, bacon, and pepperoni – topped with whole eggs. Stunning in presentation and as one popular barista at Amici Espresso nearby told me, "I can tell I'm eating breakfast pizza, but I also feel like I've had a complete breakfast."

At first glance, it may look like fried eggs atop the pizza. But no, the freshly-cracked eggs have been gently dropped on top and allowed to poach, for lack of a better description. Those who are fastidious about egg white being completely set may balk at a slice, but that just means more for the rest of us who swoon at the mere sight of this pie. I shared my bounty with others and we all reveled in its deliciousness.

Once you try a slice, you'll never look at breakfast pizza with mere scrambled eggs the same way again. An inspiring offering from the good folks at Something Italian. Game on, Fong's!
