Avocado Breakfast Pizza

If you are looking for something for breakfast that is a little out of the norm, is incredibly filling, and tastes delicious, then look no further. 
I wasn't sure if I would like the end results of this or not but...I did...I really, really did. I've had it a few times for breakfast and a few times for dinner. 
Myfitnesspal tells me this is 500 calories, 40 carbs, 27 fat, and 23 protein.
A little high in calories for breakfast...I usually shoot for between 300 and 400....but it is totally worth it. Avocados have some great nutritional benefits and you are getting a good start on your protein for the day with the egg and bacon. You could split this with someone and have a piece of fruit and cut your calories in half. Half of this would still be incredibly filling for breakfast. 

Avocado Breakfast Pizza

1 small avocado, mashed (about 1/4 cup)
1 tsp lime juice
2 slices bacon, diced
1 slice onion, diced
1 slice tomato, diced
1 egg, beaten
salt & pepper
1 Weight Watchers 100% Whole Grain Pita
1 Tbsp light mozza cheese, shredded

In a small bowl, mash avocado with lime juice. Set aside.
In a medium frying pan, cook bacon until starting to crisp up. Drain off fat. Add the onion and tomato to the frying pan.Cook and stir until onion is soft. Add in beaten egg and salt & pepper. Cook and stir until egg is cooked.
Assemble pizza: spread the avocado onto the whole grain pita. 

Top with cooked egg mixture and the cooked bacon.
Sprinkle with 1 Tbsp of light mozza cheese. 
Serve immediately.

You can, of course, use whatever kind of pita for the base that you like. It will just affect the nutritional count listed above. (Feel free to change up the veggies too!)
Pizza for breakfast?
Yes, I believe I will, thank you.
