Today I am continuing my breakfast series and reviewing the Breakfast Pizza at Frankie and Bennys.
As discussed in a previous blog I wouldn’t normally blog about a big chain restaurant like this but if I enjoy the food, I will blog about it.
One of the main reasons I wanted to write about this pizza was, it is more unusual than the ‘Great Full English Breakfast’. Whilst the ‘Big Breakfast’ offered at Frankie and Bennys does not compete with my English Breakfast, the Breakfast Pizza is a great alternative. But, is it better than the ‘Great Full English Breakfast’?
“BREAKFAST PIZZA £6.95
Sure to set you up for the day – tomato, egg, bacon, sliced sausage and mushroom with fresh chopped chives. Everything you need for breakfast, served on a delicious pizza!”
I think that it looks good. It does taste good. The egg isn’t burnt so the yolk is still runny. The pizza base is just how it should be, thin and crispy and the toppings do taste like your eating a breakfast not a weird pizza. The sausage is a well flavoured sausage with herbs and spices. The bacon is… bacon, and the mushrooms are a must for most breakfasts in my opinion.
Overall, it is a very enjoyable breakfast. It is something different with all the best parts of a good breakfast. Is it better than a full English Breakfast? Not quite. Although the Breakfast Pizza is good something is missing. Maybe it’s the nostalgic element of cooking and eating a full English breakfast that makes it hard to beat. Mopping up the baked bean sauce with buttery toast and slouching on the sofa afterwards with a coffee.
So far… The Great Full English Breakfast remains at the top on the list as the ultimate breakfast.
Let me know what you think the ultimate breakfast is. Have you tried the Breakfast Pizza?
