Who says you can’t have pizza for breakfast? This simple recipe uses naan, an Indian style flatbread easily found in the bakery section of the supermarket. They’re great for creating personal pizzas that the whole family can help build.

Ingredients

    • 4 pieces Breakfast sausage

 

    • 1 small Onion, sliced

 

    • 1/4 cup Cherry tomatoes, halved

 

    • 1 clove garlic, minced

 

    • 1 tsp Oregano, dry

 

    • 4 x 6-inch round Whole wheat naan

 

    • 1/2 cup Mozzarella, grated

 

    • ¼ cup Crystal margarine

 

    • 4 large eggs

 

    Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

    1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
    2. Remove the casings from the sausage, break them into small bite sized pieces and cook them in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until the fat is rendered and the sausage is cooked, about 8 minutes. Remove using a slotted spoon to a paper-towel-lined plate.

  1. Meanwhile, wipe out the skillet used to cook the onions, leaving a little bit of oil to cook the eggs. Heat the skillet over medium heat. Carefully break the eggs into the skillet, sprinkle with salt and pepper and cook until the whites are set, 4 to 5 minutes.
  2. Remove the naan from the oven, and place an egg on top of each one, then serve with your favourite condiments like ketchup or hot sauce.

Chef Notes

  • For a no-sausage option, try replacing the sausage with a cup of sliced button mushrooms.
  • If you love cheese, try adding in other cheeses like ricotta and buffalo mozzarella.
  • Naan stores really well in the freezer, so try brushing fresh ones with a little margarine, and place them back into the bag, then tie off the bag and place them into the freezer for up to 3 months.
