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.
|4||whole wheat pita breads, about 7 inches (18 cm) diameter||4|
|1 cup||shredded Mozzarella cheese||250 mL|
|2||small tomatoes, thinly sliced||2|
|1/8 tsp||dried basil||0.5 mL|
|1/8 tsp||salt||0.5 mL|
|2 tsp||butter||10 mL|
|1 Tbsp||chopped fresh chives or green onions||15 mL|
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.
