So, just like anyone who's getting ready to do the weight loss thing, I jumped on the fad diet. My poison of choice? South Beach, baby!
I fell off that wagon not but a few months after the wedding but, I will say that I took away several habits from the South Beach Diet that I still follow to this day. This breakfast pizza is hands down my absolute favorite thing I learned from the book.
Of course, I jazzed this puppy up with some bacon and mushrooms which the original recipe does not, but you can definitely omit. Gabe won't eat it w/o the bacon though so that's my excuse for using the bacon.
Greek Breakfast Pizza
Adapted from The South Beach Diet book
1 whole wheat pocket pita
3 slices bacon, optional
1 c. mushrooms, sliced
4 c. pre-washed baby spinach
1 green onion, sliced
1 Roma tomato
2 oz. feta cheese
garlic powder, optional
salt, pepper, olive oil
*Note: pitas freeze really well!
Slice the pita in half horizontally. Put the cup sides up and toast.
I use my toaster oven.
Bacon. The root of all that is good in this world. We use three slices in our household.
Cut the bacon into little pieces - about 1/2"
Throw them into a cold non-stick pan to render a little bit of grease. The pan should be on medium to medium high heat.
Go ahead and add the spinach:
Looks like a lot of spinach, but you know how spinach wilts down to nothing.
I use the same non-stick pan. Dish tyranny, remember?
