Egg, Tomato and Cheese Breakfast Pizzas

Our dietitians' favourite

Skip the drive-through in the morning and whip up a batch of these breakfast pizzas instead. You’ll be glad you did! Tomatoes and basil and, of course, gooey Mozzarella cheese add punch to scrambled eggs all on top of a crispy whole wheat pita bread. Add a glass of milk and a piece of fruit and you’re set.

egg tomato and cheese breakfast pizzas

Ingredients

  • 4 whole wheat pita breads about 7 inches (18 cm) diameter
  • 1 cup (250 mL) shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 2 small tomatoes thinly sliced
  • Pepper
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/8 tsp (.5 mL) dried basil
  • 1/8 tsp (.5 mL) salt
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) butter
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) chopped fresh chives or green onions

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400 °F (200 °C).

Place pita breads on a large baking sheet, overlapping slightly at edges, if necessary. Sprinkle evenly with half of the Mozzarella and top with sliced tomatoes. Sprinkle with pepper to taste. Bake for 3 minutes or until cheese is melted and tomatoes are hot.

Meanwhile, in a bowl, whisk together eggs basil, salt and a pinch of pepper until frothy.

In a nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and add egg mixture; cook, scrambling gently for about 1 minute or until just set.

Remove pitas from oven. Spoon egg mixture on top, dividing equally. Sprinkle with remaining Mozzarella and chives or green onions. Bake for about 2 minutes or until pitas are crisp around the edges and cheese is melted.

Tips

If you have fresh basil on hand, add 1 tsp (5 mL) chopped fresh basil to the eggs instead of the dried basil, and sprinkle baked pizzas with more chopped fresh basil, to taste.
