Bacon Ranch Breakfast Pizza

On the weekends, I like to make us nice breakfasts.  Usually I don't get too creative and stick with old favorites like pancakes, yeast waffles, regular waffles, oven pancake, baked oatmeal, muffins with omelets, or beggagels.  Yesterday was pancakes and bacon, but I didn't have anything planned for this morning so I asked my husband what he wanted.  He half jokingly suggested breakfast pizza (this guy loves pizza of any variety!), then wandered off while talking to his parents on the phone.  He came back 45 minutes later and was very pleased to find this breakfast pizza emerging from the oven! 

It's not the prettiest thing, but quite yummy and he gave it 10/10 points, which is high praise.  I really enjoyed it as well and it will probably get added to our list of frequent breakfasts.  I just used what I had on hand to make the pizza, and everything worked out great.  The crust is made from homemade Bisquick mix (this is the recipe I use), so it has a definite biscuit quality that is of course perfect for a breakfast pizza.
Bacon Ranch Breakfast Pizza

1 1/2 C Bisquick
about 1/2 C hot water
3-4 Tbsp ranch dressing
1/2 C shredded cheddar
2 cooked scrambled eggs
2 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
3 Tbsp grated parmesan
Preheat oven to 350 and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Mix together Bisquick and hot water until a soft, but not too wet, dough forms.  You'll need about 1/2 C water for this.  Pat and squish the dough into a 10 inch circle on the baking sheet.  If it sticks to your hands, just get your hands wet and continue patting.
Spread ranch evenly on top of the dough.  Sprinkle with grated cheese.  Top evenly with scrambled egg and bacon, then parmesan.
Bake pizza until cooked through and dough around the edge starts to turn golden brown, about 17-20 minutes.
Yield: 2-3 servings, more if you serve it with fresh fruit and yogurt or other side dishes.
