Avocado Tortilla Breakfast Pizza Is The Ultimate Breakfast Food (Video)

Pizza is one of the most popular foods in the world, so why not make it for breakfast? I switched up some traditional toppings to make sure to get your day started right. Try adding your own spin on it!

This breakfast pizza will get you ready for your day with creamy avocado, salty cheese and of course an egg all resting on top of a crisp tortilla. To make sure we got the perfect slice we used this ultra sharp Zwilling Pizza Cutter. You can easily have this on your table for breakfast in under 15 minutes flat!

 Ingredients:

  • 1 tortilla
  • ½ cup cheddar cheese, freshly grated
  • 1 avocado, mashed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place your tortilla on a baking sheet and sprinkle the shredded cheese on top. Place the cheese-topped-tortilla in the oven and bake until the tortilla is nice and crispy and the cheese is melted, about 10-12 minutes.
  3. While the tortilla is baking, start frying your egg. Place a small pan over medium heat and add the butter to the pan. Once the pan is hot, crack the egg into the pan and place the cover over the pan. Once the egg starts to turn cook and turn white, top the egg with salt and pepper. Allow the egg to cook until the whites are completely cooked and the yolk is still runny (approximately 5 minutes). Remove the pan from the heat and uncover the pan.
  4. Once finished baking, remove the tortilla from the oven and top with the prepared mashed avocado. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  5. Top the avocado with the fried egg. Serve immediately.

Watermelon is probably one of the most popular summer fruits because of its watery but sweet flavors. According to this study by Purdue University, the red and green fruit contains citrulline, an amino acid that can improve your cardiovascular health and blood pressure.

Serving suggestion: Eat them in slices or make these watermelon ice cubes to give your drink a healthy, sweet taste.

2. Avocado

Blueberries are sweet and flavorful, and they are easy to toss in a Ziploc bag and eat on the go. They’re a perfect snack to munch on when you’re in a hurry or when you’re poolside. One cup of the berries is under 100 calories and they contain anthocyanins, which can help lower your blood pressure.

Serving suggestion: Eat them by themselves, add them to a fruit salad or get creative with these frozen yogurt blueberry kebabs.

4. Pineapple

This tropical fruit is a perennial favorite, and it’s no surprise. Pineapples contain a high amount of Vitamin C and manganese, a mineral that contributes to calcium absorption and fat metabolism.

Serving suggestion: Eat them by themselves, add some to a smoothie or add some to your drink for extra flavor.

5. Bell Peppers

Corn is the perfect healthy addition to your grill-out because it’s a rich source for Vitamins A, B and E, as well as a provider of necessary minerals such as iron and zinc. (Just don’t slather on too much butter!)

7. Turkey Burgers

Yes, you can eat a burger without the guilt! There are many ways to modify a burger to make it healthier: opt for turkey burgers instead of beef, use a tomato instead of ketchup, ditch the bun and wrap it in a lettuce leaf instead.

Serving suggestion: A modified burger as we mentioned above or add some oven-roasted turkey breast to a salad.

8. Bananas
