Wild Blueberry Oatmeal Breakfast Pizza with Nutella®

Disclosure: Wild Blueberry Association of North America compensated me to write about their Feed Your Wild Side Mother’s Day Giveaway. My thoughts and opinions are my own.

When my sisters and I were kids, my Mom’s morning menu read like this:

Monday- Oatmeal
Tuesday – Cream of Wheat
Wednesday – Warm rice topped with milk, raisins, sugar and cinnamon
Thursday – Wheat berry hot cereal
Friday – Cheerios with a “special” sugar-cereal sprinkled on top

Mom was not a dietitian, but she was wise to the fact that her menu items were healthy, filling and cheap.

Like mother, like daughter, the morning menu for my four kids usually includes a rotation of just four items:

Cheesy scrambled eggs, overnight oatmeal, cold Bacon & Egg Breakfast Muffins, or Cheerios with a “sprinkle” cereal – in some random rotation – since I’m not quite as organized as Mom.

So imagine the shock, disbelief and sheer delight when my kids asked their usual, “What’s for breakfast?” And I responded: “Wild Blueberry Oatmeal Breakfast Pizza with Nutella® and Greek yogurt creamy topping.” After the shock wore off, there were smiles and giggles all around.

And then a question: “Mom, have you gone wild?”

OK, actually, they said, “Mom have you gone crazy?” but since theme of the Wild Blueberries upcoming Mother’s Day giveaway is called “Feed Her Wild Side”, I’m taking some creative liberty.

This Breakfast Pizza is certainly wildly good, though – I mean so, so good! And surprisingly easy and fast too. I’ve been seeing breakfast pizzas around the web lately but the typical “serves 1” isn’t practical for my family; plus I wanted to pack in a bit more protein to get my kids past morning recess without hunger. So I:

  • Added almonds for protein and fiber – PLUS almond extract for a divine taste combo with Nutella®
  • Added just a bit of sugar to the dough for tenderness and sweetness
  • Added super-nutritious, flavor-packed Wild Blueberries to the dough for kid-appeal; and as I mentioned in the recipe for my Wild Blueberry Oatmeal Waffles these Wild Blueberries are the perfect small size for baking (when you don’t want blueberry juice squishing out all over and sticking to the pan.)
  • Tested it a few times to find the right size of dough: More dough is just too tricky (and sticky) to work with; so ‘serves 6’ is perfect.

So, here’s the scoop on the “Feed Her Wild Side” Wild Blueberries Giveaway for Mothers Day:

Wild Blueberry Oatmeal Breakfast Pizza with Nutella®

Makes 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-2 teaspoons cornmeal
  • 1 ½ cups oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Dash of kosher or sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • ½ cup almonds, ground in food processor about 70 almonds (or 2.96 oz almond flour)
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ cup mashed banana, about 1 ½ bananas
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 cup frozen Wild Blueberries
  • 3-4 tablespoons chocolate hazelnut spread (such as Nutella®)
  • Wild Blueberry Sauce
  • Greek yogurt cream cheese topping

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Sprinkle cornmeal on pizza stone (or line roasting sheet with parchment paper,) set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine oats, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, sugar and ground almonds (it's OK if there are a few lentil-sized bits of almond after grinding.) In a medium bowl, combine milk, banana, egg, almond extract. Gently stir milk mixture into oat mixture just until blended. Fold in frozen Wild Blueberries
  3. Spread batter into 9-inch-circle on pizza stone (or lined baking sheet.)
  4. Bake 12-15 minutes until set. Cool completely.
  5. Meanwhile, make Wild Blueberry Sauce; cool completely.
  6. Mix together Greek yogurt and cream cheese for topping: About 2 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt + 2 tablespoons 1/3-fat cream cheese.
  7. Spread crust with chocolate hazelnut spread until about 1-inch of edge. Spread about 1 1/2 cup Wild Blueberry Sauce onto hazelnut spread. Top with a dollop of Greek yogurt cream cheese topping.

Notes

If served for brunch, make the crust, Wild Blueberry Sauce and Greek yogurt cream cheese topping the night before. Assemble the morning of; pizza can be served immediately or several hours after making if refrigerated.

This Breakfast Pizza would totally make mom’s Mother’s Day Brunch. It can be made the night before and served for brunch (keep sauces separate until 1-2 hours before serving.) Or if you are vying for Mom-Of-The-Year, it could actually be made on a school morning (with a few extra minutes) by serving just the Wild Blueberry Pizza crust schmeared with Nutella®.

  3. Very inspiring and beautiful blueberry recipe to change up our boring whole grain cereal and toast breakfast. My husband and 4 kiddos would agree Mom went wild (crazy) by making this, with their favorite, wild blueberries. Great idea to make the yogurt more creamy with light cream cheese. I love using the chewy whole grains and nuts. Thanks!
