Spoil your family or holiday guests with these special brunch recipes. Whether you’re using the residual heat from the night before or starting fresh, your meal will benefit from being cooked in a pizza oven.

If your oven is hot, breakfast can be as simple as placing a pan inside to cook your eggs and some bread on the floor for toast. If you’ve not done this already, you’ve got to try it.

Spicy Candied Bacon Sweet maple syrup, a little spice and the kiss of the flame.

Cast iron pans work incredibly well on the oven floor delivering deep, even heat. Slide the pan closer to the fire to get extra Crispy Hash Browns.

A great way to start the morning and a wonderful use of any of the Terra Cotta cookware.

Terra Cotta Cookware insulates the pot’s contents while keeping food moist. Also doubles as a serving dish for Baked Oatmeal with Dried Cherries & Maple Syrup or Baked Eggs with Cream & Slow Braised Spiced Tomato Sauce.

These baked treats take a little more preparation but the results are worth it. The Overnight Cinnamon Rolls are always a crowd pleaser and the Butternut Sage Scones bring a seasonal taste.

Cast iron and a hot oven make this Spiced Apple Dutch Baby dish shine. Search ‘breakfast’ in our Recipe Section for other menu ideas.
