why I love this tortilla Breakfast Pizza

The more veggies and whole foods we can get into our diet the better. And this breakfast pizza is such an easy way of doing this. They are fully customisable so you can add all of your favourite veggies, taste great and are a really nutritious way to start your day.

A savoury breakfast can also be kinder on blood glucose levels. Our bodies are already releasing glucose as we wake (the wonderful morning rise) and then we are adding to this by giving our bodies more sugar to manage when eating a sweet breakfast. This can make keeping or getting levels in range quite tricky. So perhaps a savoury breakfast may help with this.

These breakfast pizzas are also great for using up leftovers. You really can add anything and is a great way of doing a sweep of your fridge and using up those odds and ends.

How to make a Tortilla Breakfast Pizza

This is so easy to assemble and pretty quick to bake. Just keep an eye on it to make sure your edges don’t catch and you get your eggs baked to how you like them!

Start by preheating the oven to 220 C / 200 C Fan / 400 F. Then push the tortilla into a round oven dish or cake tin. Crack and add the eggs, tomatoes, peppers and leaves. Season well.

Finally, sprinkle on your mozzarella and oregano. Then pop your tortilla in the oven and bake for 15 minutes.

Recipe variations and tips

These tortilla breakfast pizzas are totally customisable so feel free to adapt this recipe and use any toppings you like. I went for cherry tomatoes, mixed peppers, spinach and rocket, mozzarella and oregano

Fancy a bit of spice. Then add some jalapenos, and sliced fresh chillies or even drizzle over some chilli sauce before serving. I love the Cholula Hot Sauces!

You can use any tortillas you like – I went for wholemeal tortillas but I also have made these with gluten-free tortillas as well. I really like the multigrain tortillas by BFree.

Keep an eye on your tortilla pizza whilst cooking. The edges will catch quicker so you want to take it out before it burns.

Cooking time may vary depending on how you like your eggs cooked. I like mine a little runny but leave it in a little longer if you want them cooked all the way through.

Breakfast can be a tricky meal with blood glucose levels already naturally rising.  But this really tasty and nutritious savoury breakfast should be a little kinder on levels thanks to the protein and wholemeal wrap used.
