Breakfast Pita-Pizza

This easy breakfast “pizza” is a quick way to use up leftover pita bread. In just about the time it takes to brew your coffee, you can have slices of this hot, eggy dish ready. And that beats a congealed triangle of leftover cheese and crust any day. Game plan: You can speed up the preparation even more by grating the cheeses the night before.

Directions

15 min.
1. Step

Heat the oven to broil and arrange a rack in the middle. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place it under the broiler while the oven is heating.

2. Step

Meanwhile, place the pitas on a work surface and sprinkle with the mozzarella, oregano, and red pepper flakes. Arrange the spinach over the cheese, leaving a small nest about 1 1/ inches wide in the center of each pita.

3. Step

When the oven is ready, remove the baking sheet and place the pitas on it. Crack 1 egg into the nest of each pita and season it with salt and pepper. Broil until the egg whites are set, about 6 to 7 minutes (the yolks will still be runny).

4. Step

Remove the baking sheet from the oven and transfer the pitas to a cutting board. Sprinkle with the Parmesan, cut each pita into wedges, and serve immediately.

Pizza Dough Gnocchi

We got the idea for these impromptu gnocchi from our Home Cooking community discussion board. All you need is half a pound of pizza dough, a pot of boiling salted water, and a sauce (marinara is perfect). Enlist your kids to help with the shaping, then let them watch you poaching the dough and tossing it in the sauce. What to buy: Premade pizza dough is available bagged in 14- or 16-ounce portions at well-stocked groceries.
