“One night I was planning what to make for Sunday morning breakfast. My options were limited, I didn't have all the ingredients on hand for my traditional strata. I did have however, half of an extra large, hand tossed, thick crust, works pizza. I thought, "Why wouldn't that work, it has all the ingredients I would use anyway!" It turned out better than I could have imagined. The family loved it and I didn't tell anyone it was leftover pizza until after they gobbled it all up! I didn't add additional cheese or ingredients and I felt the strata was perfect just the way it was.”
