Instead of actually having a cold, leftover pizza for breakfast, as one does, why not deliberately make a fun, breakfast-apropos pizza with only a handful of basic ingredients? Toppings are welcome, but that’s completely at the discretion of your morning manner.
Eggs get such a bad rap, and okay, some of it is for good reason. Eggs are high in cholesterol and thus not something someone who is overweight or whose cholesterol responds easily to food consumption should eat on the reg. But, a Harvard study following 80,000 nurses found eating an egg per day was not associated with the risk of developing heart disease. The reason suggested for this is that an egg’s glowing benefits counterbalanced its negative attributes.
Eggs: contain lutein and zeaxanthin, which contribute to eye health and lower the risk of developing cataracts, are packed with 6 grams of high-quality protein and all 9 essential amino acids per one, may help prevent blood clots, stroke, and heart attacks, are a great source of choline, contain 5 grams of fat (of which 1.5 is saturated), are one of the few foods that contain naturally-occurring vitamin D, help prevent breast cancer, and promote healthy hair and nails.
Sunny Side Up Pizza
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Ingredients (1 serving)
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tablespoon butter
- 1/4 cup of tomato sauce (your favorite sugar-free brand)
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/4 cup of grated mozzarella
Assemble the (few) ingredients:
Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. When melted, crack the egg into the pan and let cook for 30 seconds, or until the whites begin to firm up.
When the whites are no longer runny, top the whites (not the yolk) with tomato sauce, followed by the oregano and cheese.
Pop under the broiler until the cheese is melted.
And that’s it. Who wants to think too much in the morning anyway? Just 5-10 minutes (depending on how slow you are in the morning) from a change on the usual sweet breakfast.
