Great that you made the dough from scratch and I love the mustard seeds added to the surface of the calzone. Looks good - but no way would I, or could I eat it for breakfast. Dinner yes. But hey, I rarely eat breakfast in any case.

When you consider the enclosing crust as a sort of bread, it's really like having a breakfast sandwich or a breakfast burrito or quesadilla. I don't understand your sensitivity. Would you eat bacon, eggs and toast?

Incredibly occasionally if I'm in a hotel or something but it would be one slice of toast so not a huge amount of carbs. The thing is, if I do eat breakfast I don't have lunch. Too many calories. In theory of course anything can be eaten for breakfast!

Ah, those days when we woke to eat cold pizza. It's not theory. It's fact.
