Breakfast Pita Pizza
1 Whole Wheat Pita
4-5 Mushrooms (any kind is fine)
1/2 Red bell pepper
1/8 Purple cabbage
4 leaves of fresh basil for garnish
1/4 Teaspoon crushed chili flakes
1/8 Teaspoon granulated garlic
1/8 Teaspoon dried basil
1 Tablespoon Grape Seed Oil
1 Tablespoon White Vinegar
Preheat Oven to 350F. Once the oven is preheated place your whole wheat pita on a baking sheet tray and toast for 15 min. I use a panini maker to toast my pita, but an oven also gets the job done.
Meanwhile, prep your toppings. Thinly slice the purple cabbage,slice the mushrooms, dice the onion, red bell pepper, and finely chop the fresh basil. Set aside.
place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 tablespoon of grape seed oil to the pan. When oil is heated, add onions and red bell pepper to the heated pan. Season with granulated garlic, dried basil, salt and pepper. When the onions are translucent, add the mushrooms. Taste the sautéed vegetables. At this point you can add more seasoning if needed. Once thoroughly cooked set aside.
After the veggies are cooked, in a separate bowl smash the whole avocado. Season with salt, pepper, and chili flakes for a little heat. Set aside.
For the poached eggs, fill a pot half way up with water and 1 tablespoon of white vinegar. Let it simmer over medium heat. Once simmered, gently place one egg at a time To avoid breaking the yolk, crack the eggs into a smaller bowl then place into simmering water. Do one egg at a time. Let the eggs cook for 2-3 minutes, depending on how runny you want the yolk. When 2-3 minutes are up, take the egg out with a spatula and place on a paper towel and sprinkle with a little salt & pepper.
Now that all the components are prepped, the whole wheat pita should be completely toasted. If the pita is not fully toasted, toast for another 2 min.
Begin to assemble the pizza. First spread the smashed avocado on the pita. On top of the avocado add shredded purple cabbage, cooked mushrooms, onions, and red bell pepper. Top with the egg(s).
Garnish with fresh basil.
