Breakfast Pita Pizza
 
Ingredients:
Whole wheat pita bread
Eggs (scrambled)
Mushrooms
Tomato
Chicken Breast (shredded)
Green Pepper
Onion
Avocado
Parmesan Cheese (less fat than soft cheese)
Salt & Pepper to taste
 
I first cut the pita bread horizontally and sprayed it with olive oil, put  it in the oven alone for about 5 min. at 400 degrees to get the crust crispy.
I sautéed the mushrooms, green peppers, and onion. Heated up chicken that was left over from the night prior, and scrambled the eggs.
Add all of these lovely things on the pita bread and put it back in the oven for another 5 min. at 400 degrees.
