Who doesn't love pizza, especially when it looks this good! This breakfast pizza recipe from Amelia Freer's book Simply Good For You makes us all want to eat pizza for breakfast, lunch and dinner!
‘Pizza – for breakfast!?’ Yes! And it’s not all that strange when you consider the ingredients: bread, tomatoes, spinach, mushrooms, egg – all well-known breakfast foods. But there is something deliciously decadent about combining them into a ‘pizza’ that makes it feel like a morning treat, albeit a quick and easy one. Willow and I have actually eaten this at all times of the day. She loves to be involved in the decorating process!
- 4 Yoghurt Flatbreads (see page 109) or 4 wholemeal pitta breads
- 4 teaspoons fresh pesto
- 40g baby leaf spinach
- 4 cherry tomatoes, quartered
- 4 button mushrooms, sliced thinly
- ½ a red onion, peeled and thinly sliced
- ½ a red pepper, deseeded and sliced
- Olive oil
- Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 4 small free-range eggs
- A grating of cheese
- Turn the grill on to medium-high.
- Spread the flatbreads or pittas with a little pesto. Put a thin layer of spinach on top and dot the cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, onions and red peppers over the top. Drizzle with a little olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
- Place under the grill for 3 minutes, just to soften the vegetables.
- Make a well in the middle of each flatbread, then break an egg into each one. Sprinkle over the cheese, then put back under the grill for about 5 minutes, until cooked as desired (I like my yolk just a little runny).
