Pizza for Brunch?

Of course, but I’m not talking about a couple of cold slices of leftover pepperoni & sausage pizza. This is goat cheese, lox, red onion and dill and it goes perfectly with any other brunch things you’re serving. Your own dough, a store-bought crust or even a flatbread would be awesome. Whatever you use, just make it.
