Pizza for breakfast? Why not? It’s especially tasty when topped with a sunny-side-up egg and veggies. Quarter or halve the recipe for just one or two pizzas and try shredded mozzarella instead of feta, if you like.

Ingredients:

  • 5 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 ounces packed spinach (4 cups)
  • 2 (6-inch) whole-grain pitas, halved horizontally
  • 2 large plum tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 ounces feta cheese, crumbled (1/3 cup)

Directions:

  1. Heat the oven to 450°F.
  2. In a large, nonstick skillet, heat 1 teaspoon of the oil over medium heat. Add spinach, in batches if necessary, and cook until wilted, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Brush inside of each pita round with 1 teaspoon oil. Place pita rounds, oiled side up, on a large baking sheet and bake until starting to brown, about 5 minutes.
  4. Remove from the oven.
  5. Divide tomatoes and spinach evenly among pita halves, leaving an empty space in the center for an egg. Crack 1 egg into the center of each pita. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, return to the oven, and bake until yolks are lightly set, 8 to 10 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese and continue baking until cheese has softened, about 2 minutes more. Serve warm.
