My boyfriend and I went on an amazing vacation to Italy last summer. We toured Milan, Venice, Florence, Tuscany and Rome. I am not kidding you when I say that I had pizza for almost every meal. Here I am in a country of culinary ecstasy and I just couldn't help myself. Maybe it was the promise I made myself that calories were nonexistent on this trip and that I would eat exactly what I wanted but I quickly figured out that all roads don't lead to Rome... they lead to PIZZA
I cannot explain to you just how delicious the pizza was in Italy. The bubbly crust... the fresh cheese... the cured meats... the "rocket" that added a slightly bitter taste. Ahhh I want to go back! I need my fix! Not surprisingly, I found yet another excuse to eat pizza. Pizza for breakfast :)
scrambled or over easy
Prep: 15 minutes | Cook: 10 | Yield: 2 servings
2 large eggs
2 round pita breads
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
3-4 slices bacon, roughly chopped
2 tablespoons cilantro, roughly chopped
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Cook bacon in a medium skillet over medium heat until crisp. Cool and roughly chop. Set aside.
Roughly chop cilantro. Set aside.
Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray. Place pita bread on baking sheet and sprinkle tops with parmesan and mozzarella cheese.
Hollow out a circle in the middle of the cheese on top of the pitas and crack an egg into the center. If you're messy like me, crack the egg into a bowl first to make sure the yolk stays intact. Lesson learned- ha! Season with salt and pepper.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until cheese/crust is golden and the egg is cooked. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle top with bacon and cilantro. Enjoy!
