Everyone loves pizza, even at breakfast time! Our spinach and egg breakfast pizza is a new and healthy take on the beloved, classic Italian dish.

Treating yourself to this delicious dish in the morning will make getting out of bed a whole lot easier! It will satisfy your taste buds and give your body the necessary nutrients it needs to power through the day. What could be better?
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 oven 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 oven is hot, carefully break each egg into the center of the spinach ring. From there, place the sheet in the oven and bake 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. 🙂
Thin Crust Spinach and Egg Breakfast Pizza
- 2 whole wheat pitas
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1/2 cup fontina cheese low-fat, shredded (mozzarella can be substituted)
- 1/4 teaspoon oregano leaves dried, not ground
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 cup baby spinach leaves
- 2 eggs large
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper ground
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray.
- Place each pita on the baking sheet and brush with olive oil. Divide cheese between the pitas and spread in an even layer. Sprinkle with oregano and garlic powder. Arrange the spinach on each pita, about 1/2 cup per pita, in a ring. Leaving a space in the middle with no spinach.
- Once the oven is hot, carefully break each egg into the center of the spinach ring. Bake for 6 to 7 minutes or until the egg whites are set. The yolks will be runny. If a more hard yolk is desired, increase the bake time.
- Cut before serving, add salt and pepper to taste, and enjoy!

Saw this in my feed and immediately went into the kitchen to try it. Worked great, tortilla was super flaky and the egg was moist (I did broil a little longer to firm up the yolk a bit). Thanks for a great recipe! 🙂
Is the. 12 points for the spinach and egg. Pizza is that for1 servings or 2 servings
The 12 points is for 1 serving.
Wonder if there are gluten free pitas out there?
Yes! There are gluten free pitas out there! They can be difficult to fine. It’s best to ask an employee at your local grocery store.
Did you place on the middle oven rack when broiling? Give just baking a try and keep us posted. 🙂
Burned in the broiler after two minutes. I’ll try baking next time since broiler doesn’t seem to be the way to go with our oven.
Sarah, I updated the instructions and baked instead of broiled. I just remade this and baking may work best since some ovens can quickly burn the pizza crust.
I love this recipe and have prepared it numerous times. Since I do not like runny eggs I cook it separately then add to pita before going into oven. Delish!
YAH!!! Thanks, Zoraida, for the feedback.
I wonder if it would work inn the air fryer?
Angela, We haven’t made with the air fryer. Please let us know if you do.
This is delicious, but I cannot believe it’s 12 points. I used a 90 cal pita, olive oil spray, and about 2 tbls of crumbled fontina. Everything else is zero points. Don’t get it.
