Quick Breakfast Pita Pizza

My English class had to take an AP test last week. I had to rise at the eerie hour of five in the morning to dress my aching body before the birds were even awake to proclaim the glorious Wednesday. Upon arriving at school, all the AP students were congregated around the locked door to our test room, groggily soaking in the dawn light and discussing their terrible mornings (in between last-minute studying, of course.) Many had not eaten breakfast, which to me would be getting the first question wrong on the test. (I’m sure they still did okay. However, a healthy breakfast is important every morning – even the accursed morning set aside for you to rise before the sun and tramp down cold hallways to a locked gymnasium to take a test. 🙂 )

Mornings can be tough. Make yours better by having breakfast and fueling your day with macronutrients and great savory taste! I made this pita pizza as a quick breakfast with whole grains, protein, veggies, and less sugar than the sweet breakfasts I typically have, to increase the length of time I’d stay energized. I microwaved frozen veggies, but feel free to use any already-cooked leftovers you may have lying around, or if you have the time get fancy and cook them from scratch.

Quick Breakfast Pita Pizza

  • one personal-sized whole wheat pita round
  • 1/2 cup marinara sauce
  • 1 Laughing Cow cheese wedge, any flavor – I might suggest Creamy Swiss or Mozzarella, Sun-Dried Tomato & Basil
  • 1-2 cups cooked vegetables (Use your favorite types and cooking method; lots of colors!)


Cook vegetables if they aren’t already cooked.

Place sauce in a small, microwave safe bowl. Cover with a paper towel and warm up for about 30 seconds. Heat up pita.

Spread cheese on pita. Pour on sauce, and top with warm veggies.

    I love pizza. I don’ t know about having it for breakfast though 😀

    1. My dad will often stash leftover pizza in the fridge for breakfast the next day. I think of this recipe as a less greasy take on that idea…

  2. It is eerie at 5 in the morning. I also wouldn’t take a four-hour exam without having had a meal first. Blech.

    1. Believe it or not, some students said they would have felt sick if they HAD eaten before the test. There are people who don’t like to eat in the morning, but it’s recommended to eat at least something small in this case to set yourself up for a better day of eating and in general.
