Whole Grain Naan Breakfast Pizza

So I finally got on board with this whole “breakfast pizza” thing.

Can someone please tell me why this is the first time I’ve tried this?

The concept is so simple.  Plus it involves eggs and bread…which are basically two of my most favorite foods.

So essentially what I’m saying is that it’s completely unacceptable that I’ve gone 27 years in life without trying it.

Not just making it.

Trying people.  Trying!  I mean, what am I doing with my life??

Luckily I’ve come to my senses and figured this whole life thing out.

Meaning, I’ve realized I was missing out by not eating breakfast pizza for like, every meal, and have remedied that.  Mainly by making breakfast pizza and eating it obsessively.

Whole Grain Naan Breakfast Pizza

Serves 1

Ingredients:

  • 1 whole grain naan (such as Stonefire)
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup fresh spinach
  • 3 slices nitrate-free bacon, chopped
  • 1/2 garlic clove, minced (or more if you prefer)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Place whole grain naan on a baking sheet lined with foil.
  3. Sautee garlic in 2 tsp. olive oil until soft and set aside.
  4. Cook bacon according to package instructions and let cool about 3 minutes.  Crumble bacon and set aside.
  5. Grate mozzarella and parmesan cheese then set aside.
  6. To assemble, pour half the garlic + olive oil mixture over the naan then sprinkle half the cheese mixture on top of that.
  7. Layer the fresh spinach then bacon on top of the cheese.
  8. Top with half the remaining cheese then gently crack the egg, laying it carefully in the center of the naan.
  9. Sprinkle with the last bit of the cheese mixture and salt and pepper to taste.
  10. Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until egg is cooked the way you like it and the cheese is golden and bubbling.

    I LOVE breakfast pizza! I do mine on socca. There’s nothing like a runny egg!

    • Cait

      I really need to get on the socca bandwagon! That’s next up. And agreed, nothing can beat the delicious yolk of a runny egg :)

    I’m more of an eggs for dinner kind of girl vs breakfast, but this may have to happen for dinner tonight. I think I can do that… ;)

    • Cait

      I think it would be awesome for dinner!

    Looks good-what did you do with the rest of the oil mixture? I am new to your site–I found you thru you comment on carrotsncake.com. Where did you get your bachelor’s for nutitrion? I am taking an intro but will need to find another school.

    • Cait

      I haven’t gotten it yet – just started the process but I’m looking at programs at Winthrop University and Boston University as top of my list :)

      As for the oil – I layered the rest over the pizza – forgot to say that!
