NB#4 Breakfast-High Protein Mexican Pizza with Mozzarella Cheese

Beastly Ingredients

  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 whole wheat tortilla
  • ½ cup salsa
  • ½ cup onion
  • ¼ cup green bell pepper
  • ¼ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • *pinch Himalayan salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • *coconut oil

Before I get started, I preheat the oven to 350 degrees. While the oven is warming up, I lightly coat a round glass baking dish with coconut oil.

Once the glass dish is coated, I lay the whole wheat tortilla in the dish and place it in the oven. I let it bake for 6-8 minutes.

While the tortilla is baking, I grab a small glass bowl and crack 1 whole egg and 1 egg white into the glass bowl. I scramble them together with a wire whisk.

Then, I add just a pinch of Himalayan salt and freshly ground black pepper to the scrambled egg mixture and whisk the mixture one more time.

I set the glass bowl with the egg mixture to the side and grab my cutting board. I chop up ¼ of a green bell pepper and ½ of an onion, making sure to chop them up fairly fine.

Next, I lightly grease a sauté pan with coconut oil and place the finely chopped bell pepper and onions in the sauté pan. On the stove top, I sauté the pepper and onions for 5 minutes.

Now I combine the scrambled egg mixture with the peppers and onions. I let it cook at a low heat for approximately another 5 minutes.

Over the course of the 5 minutes I scramble the eggs with the vegetable mixture. During this time the tortilla has finished baking, and I remove it from the oven to let it cool down before placing the warmed tortilla shell on a large glass plate.

Once the scrambled egg mixture is finished, I remove it from the stove top. I evenly spread ½ cup of salsa on the tortilla. I remove the scrambled egg mixture from the skillet and place it on top of the salsa.

Finally, I sprinkle ¼ cup mozzarella cheese on top of the scrambled egg mixture. I fold the whole wheat tortilla together, so that the warmed tortilla and egg mixture melt the cheese.
