4. Breakfast Pizza of the Day
Where to find it: Tiny Boxwood's
Eggstraordinary ingredients: Pancetta, Goat Cheese & Sunny-Side-Up Egg
The brunch menu at this charming, tucked-away café changes often, but if you're lucky, you'll find a breakfast pizza on the small chalkboard menu. The incredibly thin and crusty dough still has a balance of softness, while melt-in-your-mouth toppings like crisp and salty pancetta, creamy and pungent goat cheese, and bright egg-yolk make each bite a little piece of heaven. Fresh squeezed lemonade and the garden view doesn't hurt, either.
5. Grilled Flatbread Breakfast Pizza
Where to find it: Canopy
Eggstraordinary ingredients: Smoked Mozzarella, Arugula, & Roasted Tomatoes
Head to the sleek and welcoming Canopy during brunch hours (Saturday and Sunday 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.) for a taste of this crispy breakfast pie. The grilled flatbread -- slightly charred with a rich and smoky flavor -- comes topped with tart and tender roasted tomatoes, smoked mozzarella, chunks of bacon, and two eggs cooked-your-way. Fresh arugula finishes off the decadent pie with a peppery bite, while shaved parmesan brings a sharp nutty flavor. Have your eggs prepared whichever way you please; you can't go wrong with this one.
