Breakfast Pizza w/ Eggs, Bacon & Cheese

Breakfast pizza with egg whites, bacon and cheese

Pizza for breakfast. I wanted bacon and cheese, like, real bad so I invented this bad boy. Also, I’m obsessed with using pita bread as pizza crust. It has the perfect crunch after a few minutes of baking. Can you tell that I’ve also been obsessed with pizza lately?

Estimated Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients (serves 2):

  • Whole Wheat Pita Bread: 1 medium¬†
  • Egg Whites: 6 egg whites (1 cup)
  • Lean Turkey Bacon: 2 slice, chopped
  • Onion: 1/4 cup, chopped
  • Fat Free Cheddar Cheese: 2 tbsp
  • Fat Free American Cheese: 1 single slice, chopped
  • Fat Free Cream Cheese: 2 tbsp
  • Garlic Powder: 1 tsp
  • Oregano: 1 tsp
  • Salt: 1/2 tsp
  • Cooking Spray: 1 spray

Preheat the oven to 350 and chop the onion and bacon. Spray a skillet with cooking spray and cook the onion and bacon for about 2 minutes or until the bacon is all the way cooked through. In a small bowl, mix the egg whites, garlic powder, oregano and salt together. Pour the egg white mixture onto the skillet with the onion and bacon. Continue to cook the egg scramble until it’s 90% done. Set aside.

Split the pita into two halves. Spread the cream cheese on the pita (like how you would spread it on a bagel), and then divide and top each pita with the  bacon egg scramble. Top each pita with the cheddar and American cheeses. Place the pitas in the oven; no cooking sheet, just riding solo. This allows the pita crust to get crunchy. Bake for about 5-8 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the pita crust is crunchy. Cut your pie and enjoy!
