Breakfast at Tracy's - Day Two!

Welcome back to my kitchen this beautiful morning.  Pull up your chair and pour yourself some coffee.  Today we are having a warm and cheesy entree I think you will enjoy.

My husband and I had breakfast with friends recently at an adorable but quirky cafe.  One of the items on the menu was breakfast pizza.  I just loved the idea (but couldn't resist a breakfast burrito that day).  I vowed to experiment in my own kitchen and make my own version.  Here it is!

Breakfast Pizza

1 frozen deep dish pie crust
2 eggs
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
5 frozen artichoke hearts, defrosted and sliced
1/2 cup fresh spinach leaves, sliced
4 ounces Jarlsberg Lite or other light Swiss cheese, shredded
1 ounce reduced fat Cheddar cheese, shredded

Preheat oven to 375°F.  Carefully loosen crimped edge of pie crust and gently pop crust out of foil pan.  Place on baking sheet and let defrost 15 minutes.  Push crust down on pan, leaving a border of the crimped edge and pushing together any cracks that occur.

Whisk eggs with salt and pepper.  Pour into crust and distribute evenly.  Scatter artichoke hearts and spinach over eggs.  Sprinkle evenly with Swiss and then Cheddar cheese.  Bake 15 to 18 minutes, until egg is set and crust is golden brown.  Cut into wedges and serve.  Makes 6 servings, 6 points plus and 210 calories each.

Note:  Any assortment of veggies or cheeses will work as toppings for this pizza, as well as added meat like sausage or ham.  Vary it to your liking and adjust the nutritional values as necessary. 

Come again Friday for a final breakfast with me this week. 
Have a great day!
