Low Fat Breakfast Pizza

Low Fat Breakfast Pizza

Low Fat Breakfast Pizza? That sounds like a dream come true for teenagers!

A few months ago I read somewhere that eating pizza leftovers for breakfast is good for you because it delivers a large amount of energy via carbohydrates and fat. If you're a guy (like me), you may have even eaten cold pizza for breaky! Unhealthy? Well, "normally" yes.

In the case of this recipe, I reckon the "unhealthy" label does not stick here. This beauty makes 1 pizzza for 10, and each slice has 11g of fat (a bit high for early in the morning, but there you go) and 911 kilojoules (making it 4.5 WW pts per slice). Not bad if you're in the mood for pizza early in the morning. Hey! You can even pig out with 2 slices... but that'll cost you 9 WW pts!

Just one word of warning, though. When you purchase a pre-packaged pizza, make sure it does not contain "transfat" (hydrogenated oil), or palm, coconut oil or palm oil. These oils and fats are not good for you. Keep it healthy, and you'll be right. ;-)

By the way, did you know, that the right mindset about food and healthy eating is one of the most important denominators for sticking to a healthy diet and losing weight?

Ingredients:

1 pre-packaged pizza base

This is what you do:

First, pre-heat your oven to 200 C (400 F) for about 5 minutes. Then bake the pizza base for 8 minutes.

As you do that, heat olive oil in a nonstick pan, and saute half the onion (leaving the rest of the onion aside) till tender. Sprinkle with pepper, thyme and cumin.

When the pizza base is lightly browned, top with the mozzarella cheese, and then half the tomato salsa and the remaining onions.

Break each egg over 1/3 of the pizza, and pirck the yolks with a fork. The add the remaining cheese, and chuck the pizza into the oven and bake at 260 C (500 F) for 20 minutes or so (or, if you have one of those electric pizza making machines, follow its instructions).

When baked, you may want to top the pizza with the remaining salsa. Personally, I don't... but you may want to.

One more thing... You can have this breakfast pizza also as a snack at any other time of the day.
