Breakfast Flatbread Pizza
Serving a flatbread or pizza is one of the easiest way to make a quick and simple breakfast that the whole family will love. From turkey sausage breakfast pizza to this delicious breakfast caprese flatbread, what’s better than a slice of pizza or breakfast with a runny egg over top?! Not much!
Naan Flatbread Recipe
While a homemade pizza dough is always delicious and amazing, sometimes that just isn’t practical. If you are like me and you don’t have access to fresh dough at your grocery store and aren’t big on making homemade breads, then Naan flatbreads are an amazing base for any flatbread or pizza.
The possibilities are endless when it comes to topping a naan for a quick and easy flatbread. From balsamic steak and brussels sprout flatbread and apple bacon bleu cheese flatbread to making a quick pepperoni pizza in the Air Fryer with the kids, there are so many ways to use the very versatile ingredient.
For this breakfast flatbread, we top naan with pesto, fresh vegetables and runny egg yolks. The combination of flavors and textures makes for a light and refreshing meal that is really perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner!
Caprese Flatbread with Eggs
Most people are familiar with the fresh flavors of caprese salad. It’s a traditional mix of ripe tomatoes, basil and mozzarella, often accompanied with balsamic reduction. It’s a classic summer flavor combination that can be used in so many ways. I love it in this low carb Honey Balsamic Caprese Chicken Bake or this impressive appetizer Caprese Whipped Goat Cheese Dip.
Instead of adding leaves of fresh sweet basil, we are making it more accessible with pesto which has all the great flavors of basil. You can make homemade basil pesto or grab a jar of your favorite pesto from the grocery store. We are keeping this breakfast flatbread light, so we are skipping the mozzarella and instead adding an egg with a runny yolk.
Not only is a perfectly cooked egg good all on it’s own, its a rich fatty substitute for cheese that mixes great with the acidic balsamic and freshness of tomatoes and avocado. My children and I love a good sunny side up egg for dunking our bread in. If your family isn’t as keen on runny eggs, feel free to cook your eggs to whatever doneness you are most comfortable with.
I topped my flatbread with two large eggs, but you can go all out and add as many eggs as you can fit on your flatbread if you are looking to add more protein and yummy yolks.
Cooking Sunny Side Up Eggs
When cooking a sunny side up egg, you will want to cook it in a non-stick skillet with a lid just until the whites are done. I love using my cast iron pan for a healthy non-stick surface.
Don’t forget to season your eggs! A pinch of salt and touch of cracked black pepper can go a long ways to highlighting the flavors of these fresh and simple ingredients.
No one wants a runny egg white on their plate, but just be sure not to cook it too long or you will loose the runny egg yolks that add complete the dish so well. Just keep in mind that eggs will continue to cook a little bit after they are removed from heat.
Cooking eggs is an art that is best learned with practice. There is no shame in tossing the first few on the side of your plates. Someone will surely be happy to gobble up a couple well done eggs while they wait for breakfast to be served.
