Two Superfoods Collide
Eggs and spinach are two of our favorite superfoods (and for good reason!) Each of them have plenty to offer as far as nutrition goes, including but not limited to: a hefty dose of protein, belly-filling fiber, and body-nourishing vitamins & minerals. Aside from being incredibly nutritious, the flavors of these nutritional powerhouses compliment each other beautifully. Add in all of the other ingredients (most of which you probably already can find in your kitchen) and you’ve got yourself one well-rounded meal!
A Healthy Meal that is Easy to Make!
While the broiler is heating up, place the two pitas on a non-stick baking sheet and brush the tops of them with some olive oil. Sprinkle 1/4 of a cup of cheese onto each pita in an even layer, and then add the garlic powder and oregano. Arrange the spinach on each pita into the shape of a ring around the edges, leaving a space in the middle with no spinach.
Once the broiler is hot, carefully break each egg into the center of the spinach ring. From there, place the sheet in the oven and broil the pizzas for about 6 to 7 minutes. Note that the yolks will be runny. If you would prefer them to be firm, increase the broil time until the desired consistency is reached! All that’s left to do now is dig in! Enjoy. 🙂
