Recipe: Quick & Healthy Breakfast Pizzas

How often do you eat something two days in a row because you liked it so much? Hubby first made these breakfast pizzas for me last Wednesday and the next day, I asked him to make it again. These are seriously delicious, easy to put together and healthy too! A fantastic way to start the day, for sure :)


Quick and healthy breakfast pizzas


For our breakfast pizzas, we used tortilla wraps, then topped it with mozzarella cheese and sliced cherry tomatoes. An egg is then broken into a well in the centre, and then the pizza is placed in a 180°C oven for 10-12 minutes, until the egg is cooked. Personally, I like it with a slightly soft yolk (but not runny as it would be too messy to eat). It is then topped with either fresh basil leaves or avocados. The former is a classic combination of cheese, tomatoes and basil..... really tasty! A touch of truffle oil completes this mouthwatering breakfast pizza.


Tangy tomatoes, melting savoury cheese, soft egg yolk and fresh basil leaves from the garden .. so good!

We also bought some avocadoes last weekend, so we sliced them up and scattered them over the breakfast pizzas. This would also be great for brunch or lunch.

Quick & Healthy Breakfast Pizzas
Recipe by Baby Sumo 
Preparation time: 2 minutes
Cooking time: 10-12 minutes
Serves 2-3

Ingredients
Version 1:
1 wholemeal tortilla wrap
4-5 cherry tomatoes, quartered
Mozzarella cheese
Parmesan cheese (optional)
1 egg
Salt and freshly ground pepper
6-8 sweet basil leaves
Truffle oil

Version 2:
1 wholemeal tortilla wrap
4-5 cherry tomatoes, quartered
Mozzarella cheese
Parmesan cheese
1 egg
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1 ripe avocado, peeled and sliced
1 calamansi lime (limau kasturi)



1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Place tortilla wraps on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Top with generous amounts of mozzarella cheese onto the pizzas. Make a well in the centre, and break egg into centre. Arrange cherry tomatoes around the pizza.

2. Bake in preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the egg is cooked to your liking. Grate Parmesan cheese over the pizza and garnish with fresh basil leaves or sliced avocados. Season the eggs with some salt and freshly ground pepper and drizzle with truffle oil. Serve immediately.

Note: See here on how to pit and peel an avocado (Step 3 under recipes). Once you have peeled and sliced it, squeeze the calamansi lime over it to stop the avocado from browning.

  13. Ahhh!!! Using tortilla wraps, sure saves a lot of trouble, no need to make one's own. They do sell pizza crusts at the supermarts too though. Saw some here, didn't buy.
