Cast Iron & Breakfast Pizza

I will admit I don't know a lot about cast iron. My mom had a bunch of cast iron pans when I was growing up, but I hated using them because I thought the food tasted like metal and I hated it. My mom made us scrub those pans until they were almost silver. Yes, I know that's the number 1 thing NOT to do to cast iron. I've learned the proper way to cook with cast iron now and the taste is comppletely different!! It's amazing! Breakfast is the best thing cooked in cast iron and for this recipe I do all the cooking parts in my 2 cast iron skillets. This is the recipe of how I make breakfast pizza. Feel free to add other ingredients you like. (Sorry for the small picture!)

Breakfast Pizza

1 pound bag of hash browns (I like the shredded better for this)
1 pound bacon
6 eggs, scrambled
2 Hollandaise sauce mix packets
1 Pillsbury Pizza Crust
Cheese - any blend you like
Ham and any other ingredients you want

Cook baconm hashbrowns and scrambled eggs.
Prepare Hollandaise sauce acording to package instructions.
Unroll pizza dough and press out to desired thickness.
Prehat oven to 425° F.
Spread a thin layer of hollandaise sauce onto the pizza crust. Layer hasbrowns, more hollandaise sauce, eggs, bacon, ham and any other toppings you want. Add cheese to the top and backe for 10 m inutes and rotate pan. Bake an additional 3-5 m inutes until cheese is melted and crust is golden brown.
The leftovers are really good, too!

This is great! I made this for the wife and kids earlier today. The pan was empty in no time.
