Breakfast Pizza to jumpstart the week.

A Breakfast Pizza to jumpstart the week on Sunday. The first day of the week is always a little tough. After sleeping in late and having unlimited fun over the weekend, it always requires a little more than the normal enthusiasm to get dressed for school and these mini “pizzas” always help! Made on leftover bread (pita, arabic, naan or even chapathi), using a cream cheese spread, cherry tomatoes, rocket leaves, sliced avocado and a sunny side on top not only are they super healthy and wholesome to keep their little bodies well-nourished for the day but also unlike a regular pizza there is minimal cooking involved leaving me with enough time to plait her long hair! It’s my little chefling’s favourite breakfast “sandwich”.

Breakfast Pizza

Makes 1

Ingredients:

  • ½ tsp of olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • 2-3 cherry tomatoes, cut in halves
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper (optional)
  • One round bread of your choice (pita or naan or even a chapathi)
  • 2 tbsp of any cream cheese spread of your choice
  • 1/4th avocado (cut into slices)
  • A couple of rocket leaves (or greens of your choice, like baby spinach)

Instructions:

  1. In a slightly large frying pan, heat the oil and once the pan is hot lower the heat. Break the egg gently into the pan so the yolk remains intact.
  2. While the egg is getting cooked, in the same pan on the side add the cherry tomatoes to slightly cook them (optional; blistering makes them a little sweet but if your child doesn’t like cooked tomatoes then raw cherry tomatoes are good too).
  3. Cook till the egg white becomes opaque and the yolk is set and the tomatoes are blistered (It will take about 2 minutes).
  4. In the meantime, slightly warm the bread on a flat pan and spread the cream cheese on it. Add a few rocket leaves and then slide on the egg and tomatoes on top. Add avocado slices.
  5. Add salt (remember most spreads have a bit of salt as well) and pepper (if using) and your breakfast pizza is ready. Cut into wedges with a pizza cutter if you like. My little girl loves to tear the bread though and dip that into the soft set yolk.

*This recipe also makes for a great lunchbox snack, simply replace the sunny side egg with slices of boiled egg and roll the bread into a wrap.
