Spinach & Eggplant Breakfast Pita Pizzas

I recently discovered a South Indian-inspired eggplant spread made here in Washington, D.C. It’s perfect with eggs, pita bread, tortilla chips or toast — but my new favorite way to use it is as a sauce for breakfast pita pizzas! The spread is by Sasya Foods, a locally-based company making vegan and gluten free spreads that also happen to reduce food waste. Check out their newly-launched online store (use discount code ME15 for 15% off!!), and see my other recent recipe using their cilantro spread.

Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs
  • A few spoonfuls of eggplant spread, like this one by Sasya Foods
  • 2 pieces of pita bread
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese (I used mozzarella)
  • 2 cups of spinach
  • 1/4 large tomato
  • Optional: crushed red pepper (just enough to sprinkle on top)

Estim. Prep & Cooking Time: 20 mins.

Steps:

  • Heat oven to a broil. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place it in the oven while it’s heating.
  • Place pitas on a cutting board. Smear a layer of eggplant spread over each.
  • Sprinkle shredded cheese evenly over both pitas.
  • Arrange a handful of spinach on each pita in a wreath-shape, leaving a small hole about 1-2 inches in diameter in the center for each egg.
  • Dice tomato, and evenly place over the spinach.
  • I happened to have olive oil in spray form, so I spritzed a little on top at this point. Not necessary, but it helps the spinach wilt more.
  • Once oven is heated, remove baking sheet, and transfer pitas from the cutting board to the baking sheet.
  • Press down on the center of each pita with a spoon to create a slight well for the egg. Crack an egg into each, and season as desired.
  • Broil for 7-8 minutes – until the egg whites are set but the yolks are still runny.
  • Remove pitas from the oven, cut each into 4 yolky slices, take pictures of your creation, and tag me!

This recipe drew inspiration from Chowhound and Sasya Foods.
