Egg Topped Pita Pizza

by Meghann on August 2, 2011

Ok, I’ll admit my attempt at an egg topped portobello mushroom cap pizza last week could be classified as a fail, but the egg topped pita pizza for lunch today? That, my friends, is a true winner.


Oh yes, this pita pizza rocked!

It all began with a pita


Some sauce, cheese, and mushrooms


One cracked egg


15 minutes in the oven at 425


Bam! Lunch is served.


I also added a sprinkle of raisins because I’m weird like that.


The addition of the egg is a great way to sneak a little extra protein on the pizza, plus it tastes great. I like it where the yolk is just a tad runny. Delicious. πŸ™‚


I still have to go back to the drawing board with the mushroom cap, but at least the pita version worked out. πŸ˜‰

My husband loves runny eggs for breakfast (and breakfast for dinner!). He would be all over this pizza recipe. And I love the simple lunch idea πŸ™‚

I am not sure I would eat a pizza with an egg on it! Looks pretty though!

9 Christine @ BookishlyB August 2, 2011 at 4:43 pm

Or raisins… but I do admire the creativity and risk taking!

I love making quick pizzas. I like using Flatouts ( – I normally buy the Healthy Grain – Harvest Wheat version because it’s high in fiber and protein and super tasty. I like heating it up in the toaster oven, and adding turkey pepperoni πŸ™‚

Oh that looks REALLY good. I love a good egg(or eggs)! hah.

After reading your blog for so long, I still have not tried egg on a pizza! I see it in my future!

Try throwing some fennel seed on top of the sauce (but under the cheese). It adds such a great depth of flavor!

Ive never thought of adding an egg like that to anything and then just cooking it in the oven…. GENIUS!

This looks soooooo goooood. I’ve been on a tomato kick lately and the sauce on this pizza is beckoning to me. And you’re too funny with the raisins!

I’ve always heard that runny egg on a pizza is delicious, but I’ve never actually tried it. I love a runny egg on pretty much anything, though.

Not going to lie, an egg-topped pizza with raisins sounds down-right CRAZY to me. I am not a huge fan of runny eggs. How do you think this would taste with scrambled or other firmly cooked eggs on it? I have an ex-boyfriend who at Totino’s Party Pizzas religiously. He was a total gym rat and burned a billion calories a day so he could eat that and still be chiseled (jerk). Anyway, he would put 2 party pizzas facing each other (sandwich-style) with hard-boiled egg pieces and broccoli in the middle and then cook them that way. It always grossed me out.

Then again, I have had a firmly cooked egg on a burger before and it was delicious, so maybe…just maybe…I could be convinced to give this a try.

Mmm I’ve been wanting to make tortilla pizza, but pita pizza would be even better! I may have to whip this one up tonight.

Ps. Adding raisins isn’t weird. The other day I made myself a “tuna salad” composed only of tuna, mayo, and raisins. Delish.

That’s SUCH a great idea to add protein to pizza if you don’t want any beef or chicken.. good call!

You have thoroughly grossed me out. Egg, raisin, and pizza. Ick… But if you enjoy it, awesome for you. πŸ˜€

31 gia August 2, 2011 at 5:34 pm

pita pizzas are my fave!!!! You know what is amazing and filling? KALE on pizza, it is phenomenal, just wash, tear and put a little olive oil on it and put on top of the tomato sauce then cover with some mozzarella. I’m telling you…

32 Jamie aka "Sometimes Healthy" Girl August 2, 2011 at 5:37 pm

Wow! Very impressive πŸ™‚ I’ve eaten these at restaurants before but never even thought about the fact that I too could make them πŸ™‚

That cooking pan was small and adorable. Your pitta pizza looked delicious.

When I make it the egg never looks that perfect.

34 jen August 2, 2011 at 6:56 pm

eggs with raisins sounds absolutely disgusting.

35 Alaina August 2, 2011 at 8:09 pm

I think I’d have to trade olives for those raisins, but otherwise looks delicious!
