Brainstorm: Breakfast Pizza -- are you up for it?

I guess it really isn't a brainstorm, but I got this idea for Breakfast Pizza -- real hand-tossed crust pizza cooked in a very hot wood or coal oven, with breakfast goodies on top. Novel concept? No, but I think many people would buy breakfast pizzas.
What do you think?
Right now, I could go for one made with burratta, prosciutto, a couple of eggs and arugula! I guess the only thing that makes this "breakfasty" is the time of day it would be made. ;-).
OK, OK, I just wish the pizza places would open for breakfast.
Wouldn't you go? What pizza would you order?
oh yeah! beautiful! i've made delicious scrambled eggs with cream cheese and smoked salmon. your combo takes it to the next level!
we were reveling in cheap (but very good quality) norwegian and scottish smoked salmon that harris teeter had over-ordered and was selling at 3.49 per 8 ounces (basically around half price). boy, we have been in hog heaven, but now the sale is over. ;-(.
Breakfast Pizza. A menu item that has been served by Greek owned pizza places around the Yale campus for more than 30 years. The one I remember longest ago (late 1970s) was Broadway Pizza, since displaced from the heart of the Yale campus to the West River neighborhood.
High rents and the need to be in ealry to make dough caused operators to offer breakfast pizza such as bacon and egg and ham and egg with or without cheese, as well as breakfast calzones made with the same dough.
I have seen this availabily in other university communities on a smaller scale, sometimes only during school sessions.
Honestly, I think this would be a genius idea for a place like Pizza Hut, especially if they're located near a college. Have the closing shift make a bunch of pizzas right at close, refrigerate them immediately and serve them cold the next morning. I would never go anywhere else for breakfast.
I love breakfast pizzas.
My favorite is to take a blistering pizza with tomato sauce, arugula and mozzarella straight out of the oven and crack a egg over the top (quail egg preferably) and then drizzle with some EVOO.
It's like Eggs in Purgatory on a pizza!
