Individual Breakfast Pizzas

This post is sponsored by Egg Farmers of Canada and we have been compensated monetarily for our post. Our opinions, as always, are our own!

Friday, October 12th is World Egg Day - a global celebration dedicated to eggs. Sue and I are pretty excited about that. We use a lot of eggs around here. Like... a looooooooot.
We welcome the fact that Canadian eggs are produced in every province by more than 1,000 farm families! Local farmers (Canadian egg farms are family run, by the way) ensure that, on average, eggs travel from the farm to the grocery store in less than a week. Fresh is always good in our books. 
And Canadian egg farmers all adhere to the same National Animal Care and food safety programs, ensuring hens are always well cared for, and that your eggs are always clean and fresh. 

And can we talk about the nutritional benefits of eggs for a second?
Eggs have 6 grams of protein and 14 key nutrients - including: omega-3, iron, vitamins A, D, E and B12. Eggs are a natural choice for a healthy, active lifestyle. 
So. Much. Healthiness.

Sue and I decided to share our Breakfast Pizzas for #WorldEggDay. They are super easy, can be customized to each person's preferences, and only take a minute to whip up. Perfect for those busy mornings! 

Individual Breakfast Pizzas

whole wheat pitas
pizza sauce
shredded cheese
mushroom, sliced
onions, diced
bacon, cooked and cut into pieces
tomatoes, sliced
spinach leaves, torn

Preheat oven to 400. 
Take a whole wheat pita and spread a little pizza sauce on it. Sprinkle your cheese around the outside of the pita, forming a ring (this is to prevent your egg from sliding off). Top with your favorite toppings. Be sure to leave an empty space in the center of the pita for your egg. 
Once you have topped it as desired, place your pita on a cookie sheet and gently crack an egg into the center of the pizza. 

Bake at 400 until egg whites go from clear to white and center is as set as you like it. (About 15 minutes or so, keep an eye on it!) (See step by step below)

Let cool for a minute before serving. 
Don't worry if your egg yolk breaks when you top your pizza. It will still work! 

There are so many ways you can make this! Use your favorite toppings.

Above is a simple cheese pizza with a little bacon and spinach.

And this one is topped with bocconcini slices, spinach, bacon, tomato, and onion. 

I just think they look so pretty. 
You may have noticed I didn't include amounts with the ingredients. This is because you can use as much or as little as you like. You can make one pizza or a dozen pizzas. 
So. Easy. 

All those colors, and textures, and flavors!

Breakfast doesn't get much better than that. 

Sue and I were cleaning up and our mom came in and said, "I'd like one of those. They look tasty."

15 minutes later. *Voila* 
Eggs are definitely the star of the show. You can leave the yolk a little runny or let it set fully. Up to you.

Even our broken yolk pizza was ridiculously good. 
Seriously, is there anything Canadian eggs can't do? 

How are you going to be enjoying your eggs this Friday? We'd love to see what you're making - take a picture and share it on social media! Just be sure to include #WorldEggDay on all of your social posts!
