Avocado Breakfast Pizza with Fried Egg

Avocado Breakfast Pizza with Fried Egg
This week I was on an avocado bender and I shared some tasty new avocado recipes and reminisced about some of my favourites that I have already written about and I realized that I had not mentioned one of my absolute favourite ways to enjoy avocados and possibly the simplest way, on toast for breakfast. It is so simple with just mashed avocado that is seasoned with a bit of salt, fresh ground pepper and perhaps a bit of lime juice and served on toast and yet it is so good! I recently came across the idea of a breakfast pizza that had an egg in the middle and I thought, wouldn't it be nice to do a pizza version of avocado on toast except instead of toast use a pita and top it with a fried egg and possibly other toppings? As soon as I had the idea, I knew that I would have to try it and it turned out wonderfully well! I have been enjoying different variations of this avocado breakfast pita pizza all week trying different toppings like bacon or crumbled queso fresco in addition to the already amazing 'plain' version. One morning when I had a bit more energy I even went so far as to try a guacamole breakfast pizza with fried egg which was also really really good!

My favourite from all of the experiments had to be the bacon version! It is almost like salty bacon and creamy avocado were made for each other!

I love egg and avacado together. I usually place slices of avacado on top of eggs cooking sunny side up, place lid on top and cook very slowly. I am going to have to try your recipe now - with coconut flour tortillas instead of pita I think. Thanks for all the great recipes!

Avocado with runny egg yolk is one of my favorite flavor combos! Love this breakfast pizza.

Kevin, excellent recipe, so simple and easy to prepare. The lime juice in the mashed avocado explodes with flavor and then the bacon on top of that, simply superb! And the best part, my wife loved it! Thank you for your passion in the kitchen. Sincerely Dave, Green Bay, WI

Nice use of avocado. It would be super if you linked this post in to Food on Friday Series which is all about avocado.

Sarah H said...

WOW this looks incredible - what a great idea!!

Cara said...

mmm. There is no rule that says we can only eat this for breakfast, right? :)

Kathleen Richardson said...

At first I worried, what would I--being the sole eater in this household--do with an entire pizza for breakfast. Then you mentioned pita! I can manage that. I'm even thinking your toppings on one of those little sandwich thins. Anyway I look at it, you've got a great idea there, Kevin.

Keep writing...

I just made this for brunch.. slept a little late today! And it was fantastic! I forgot to pick up a lime at the store, so I used our bottled lemon juice (probably a lil less than a tablespoon, I'm not a big fan of that stuff but I wanted the acidity), and it was still delicious. I didn't have bacon, but that didn't matter. I slapped about a tablespoon of salsa verde on top and went to town. So good! Thanks for the recipe idea!

I love avocado anything, but that egg completely sold my hubby. He says egg was on a ton of dishes in Brazil. Love it!

Debbie said...

I have never heard of Avocado Pizza that is a first but it certainly looks good.

Lorraine Joy Alegria-Vizcarra said...

OMG I have been wanting to make a pizza like this forever.

This is brilliant. Thanks for weekend breakfast inspiration.

Lisa said...

I can almost taste the creaminess of avocado. I love your idea, maybe I'll use 2 strips of bacon, and make some thing like Avocado Breakfast Burrito Fried Egg- or how about, boiled eggs??? what do you think?

Kevin said...

Lisa: An avocado breakfast burrito with eggs sounds great!

Ashli B said...

That looks awesome! I always get bored with breakfast.

I'm making this tomorrow but I think I may add some left over homefires to the bacon too.

I really recommendmashed avocado on toast topped with a poached egg, seasoning and grated parmesan cheese. That washed down with a coffee is the absolute bomba!!

Nina said...

My uncle would love that! He is a huge fan of avocado. I will make sure that he gets this recipe. Thank you for posting!
