This delicious breakfast pita pizza is perfect for stocking your freezer for those busy weekday mornings.
Breakfast Pita Pizza
Most people don’t think of making a hot pizza for breakfast. But if you consider the typical breakfast burrito for a moment, you’ll see that pizza isn’t so odd. Particularly this one.
This is the last recipe in my Weekend Meal Prep pizza series. It takes just moments to prepare and freezes well for fast and easy meals any time of day. Food prep doesn’t have to be hard or time consuming. If you can scramble an egg, you can make this pizza with ease.
It’s whole-grain goodness first thing in the morning with a nice chaser of protein from the egg. It’s delicious and you’ll be full until lunch! Plus, who doesn’t like pizza for breakfast?
What You’ll Need
1 medium whole wheat pita bread – I got mine at Trader Joe’s. I’m sure other stores carry them as well.
¼ cup marinara sauce – Check the ingredients of your sauce if you aren’t making it yourself. You don’t want any added sugars or ingredients you can’t pronounce.
1 large egg – You’ll want to scramble this. If you wish, you can add the bell peppers to the pan as well if you prefer them cooked a bit more than they would be if you just popped this in the oven or microwave.
¼ cup chopped bell peppers – You can use any color you prefer. Chop them small or the best texture in your pizza.
¼ cup shredded cheddar cheese – I always buy a block of cheese and grate it at home myself because of the stuff they add to the store-bought version to keep the cheese from clumping together.
How To Make Breakfast Pizza On Pita Bread
A breakfast pita pizza is super easy to make. All you have to do is get a ready made, whole grain pita bread. Layer on the sauce and top with chopped peppers, scrambled eggs and cheddar cheese. You could even add chopped onions if you like that.
How To Freeze A Breakfast Pita Pizza
You’ll want to multiply this recipe by however many pizzas you want to have in your freezer.
Assemble them as instructed.
To pack them, you’ll want to either freeze them separately first on a cookie sheet and then stack, or simply place some parchment between each one to freeze them in a stack.
Once frozen, make sure they are kept in an air tight container.
