Pita Breakfast Pizza for One

Treat yourself with your own personal breakfast pizza. A whole pita topped with pesto, mozzarella, bacon, and a fried egg.

Pita Breakfast Pizza for One 2

I love college football, it’s full of so many surprises. Part of the tension and excitement yesterday was due to Ohio State’s battle against Minnesota and while I enjoy a close game it still made me nervous and had several outbursts. But once that win was clinched I sat back to watch the rest of the games unfold and there were definitely plenty to pick from. I can only hope that due to a few choice upsets, Ohio State’s potential to get into the college football playoffs has increased.

But I digress for the sake of those of you who could care less about college football.

Make your own personal breakfast pizza using a pita! I’ve posted a pizza for one recipe complete with a mini from scratch pizza crust in the past, but today I made things simpler by throwing Breakfast-y toppings onto a pita. This would also work on a bagel or English muffin. My favorite part of course was the oozy egg yolk.

Love the cutting board! and Andrew will appreciate the cut marks and how it looks like its being used :) Meanwhile I ignored the recipe all together because of the mozzarella. Yesterday Luke asked me if I wanted a piece of cheese and I told him I couldn’t eat it and he said, “I’m sorry mommy.”

Anything topped with a fried egg is yummy! I have a package of whole wheat pita bread just waiting for this! How about adding a little sauteed spinach?

Definitely add spinach! Florentine breakfast pizza?
