It's a challenge to be creative with breakfast every morning, and I like to come up with fun foods the kids will love. This is a great recipe for the kids to join in and help make for breakfast. It's also convenient to make ahead and freeze for a weekday. —Melissa Pelkey Hass, Waleska, Georgia

  1. Preheat oven to 450°. Place crust on a pizza pan. Spread with ricotta cheese; sprinkle with garlic powder and 1/2 teaspoon paprika. Top with mushrooms and tomatoes.
  2. With clean hands, massage arugula with vinegar, oil and 1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper until softened; arrange over pizza.
  3. Using a spoon, make six indentations in arugula; carefully break an egg into each. Sprinkle with the remaining paprika, salt and pepper. Bake until egg whites are completely set and yolks begin to thicken but are not hard, 12-15 minutes. Yield: 6 servings.
Editor’s Note: This recipe was tested with sun-dried tomatoes that can be used without soaking. When using other sun-dried tomatoes that are not oil-packed, cover with boiling water and let stand until soft. Drain before using.
