Although the weather might not quite feel like it, this weekend marks our Province’s official start to summer. The May 24th weekend has always been, for many families, the first weekend of camping to begin their summer camping season. If you plan to go camping this weekend, try serving this delicious breakfast pizza recipe over your campfire…the children will love it!
Breakfast Flatbread Pizza
6 beaten eggs
2 tbsp shredded parmesan cheese
Flatbread (individual serving size)
2 tsp olive oil
¾ cup shredded cheese
Your choice of toppings (bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, tomato, etc
First, heat skillet with cooking spray on medium-high heat. Blend beaten eggs and parmesan cheese in a bowl until mixed. Pour eggs in the heated skillet (on stove if available or over your campfire), gently pull and fold them until slightly cook (consistency should be a little runny). Lay flatbreads on aluminum foil. Brush each flatbread with olive oil. Top the flatbread with scrambled eggs and other toppings. Add shredded cheese. Completely cover each pizza with the aluminum foil. Place on top of campfire. Cook until pizza is warm and cheese has melted. This should only take about 3-5 minutes. Remove from campfire, let aluminum foil cool before opening and enjoy!
Traditionally, this pizza would be cooked on a baking sheet in the oven at 450 degrees for 5 to 6 minutes…..if you’re not camping this weekend, try making it at home!
