Egg Pizza

in All Posts

Hello there!


Yesterday, Karen sent me this link from the Happiness Project called “Six Tips for Forcing Yourself to Tackle a Dreaded Task.”  It was totally the kick-in-the-pants that I needed to buckle down and get a fair amount of writing done.  Yay!


Lunch was leftover tofu enchiladas from last night:



Which I enjoyed with a side salad:


Salads included chocolate and a Pumpkin Spice Latte.  Quite healthy, I know.  :)  I had a massive sugar crash around 4 PM, but a quick walk with the dogs set me straight.

I also had a bowl of Kashi Go Lean + blueberries:


Dinner had to be fast and simple because I got sucked into a work vortex and didn’t realize how late it had become!


I made an easy egg pizza:


The star was this lovely Pesto.  To make a cheese-less version of this pizza for the Husband, I used salsa as the base for his (he’ll eat eggs every now and then):


The “dough” was just a whole wheat flatbread.  Easy, easy!  I topped the flatbred with pesto, feta, spinach, tomatoes, and one half-cooked over-easy egg and then threw everything in the oven for 10 minutes.


On the side was asparagus:


Let’s see…


The girls and I had grand plans to go bowling while our husbands/boyfriends went to watch football, but we got to the alley and there were no open lanes!  Very sad.  Instead, we went to Yoforia and got frozen yogurt.  Bet you didn’t see that one coming.


(Diana had just come from Zumba, in case you are wondering why she is awesomely bedazzled. I love it.)


So… I better crash.  I’m running 15 miles in the morning!

    Good luck on the run!

    “To make a cheese-less version of this pizza for the hummus” This sentence cracked me up. We all have typos Caitlin, but this one was too funny. It took me a minute to realize hummus = husband 🙂

    Good luck on your run tomorrow!

      Funny, I call my husband Hummus sometimes too. He much prefers that to his other name, Ketchup.

  • Ellen September 9, 2010, 10:51 pm

    the typos in this post cracked me up! hope you get some sleep and your run goes well tomorrow. 🙂

  • Sonia @ Master of Her Romaine September 9, 2010, 10:53 pm

    LOL at the hummus/husband!! Freudian slip from a chickpea lover?! 😉

  • Katie @ Healthy Heddleston September 9, 2010, 10:53 pm

    Good luck on the 15 miles — I have 7 on my plate tomorrow (I’m just doing my first half!) This will be the farthest I’ve ever run!

  • Chelsea @ Strawberry Sweat September 9, 2010, 10:55 pm

    I used that same kind of pesto tonight for my eggplant! Pizza looks good, with the exception of the egg; I just don’t like eggs!

  • Lisa (bakebikeblog) September 9, 2010, 10:56 pm

    good luck for the morning run! Have fun!

  • Bee Goes Bananas September 9, 2010, 11:02 pm

    I’ve never thought to put an egg on a pizza before…I’ll have to try it!

  • Jessica @ The Process of Healing September 9, 2010, 11:03 pm

    Yogurt is the PERFECT pre-run fuel!

  • Wei-Wei September 9, 2010, 11:20 pm

    Mmm. Pizza looks amazing. It would be awesome to make a breakfast egg pizza on toast!

  • Laura September 9, 2010, 11:45 pm

    How do you prepare your asparagus? I’m always looking for new, healthy ways to cook it!

    • Caitlin September 10, 2010, 6:50 am

      wash, drizzle in olive oil, pop until broiler for 10 minutes. easy!

  • Diana September 9, 2010, 11:52 pm

  • Melissa September 10, 2010, 12:15 am

  • Freya (Brit Chick Runs) September 10, 2010, 2:53 am

    Good luck on the run!
    Love Diana 🙂 I miss Zumba 🙁

  • Marieke September 10, 2010, 4:08 am

    Our gym just launched Zumba, I think the craze has just started to hit Scotland. I heard of people showing up at 7pm for classes starting at 7.30pm and they couldn’t get in, this was at council leisure centres. I’m glad I have my gym where you can book in and be sure to do the class. I’m going tonight for the first time! Can’t wait,should be good fun.

  • Little Bookworm September 10, 2010, 6:46 am

    Good luck on your run! 😀

  • Chelsey September 10, 2010, 6:52 am

    Nothing wrong with skipping out on bowling for frozen yogurt! I would honestly rather eat than bowl any day of the week!! 🙂

    That eggy pizza looks fab – good luck on your 15 miler!!!

  • Lauren September 10, 2010, 6:55 am

    I love making egg pizzas, but I’ve only ever done the scrambled egg on the pizza.

    It’s so cool that you have so many wonderful friends to have such lovely late night fro-yo dates. 🙂

  • Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) September 10, 2010, 7:39 am

    I love egg pizza. Have you ever tried it on a polenta crust? Now that is really good, kinda like grits and eggs. Looks like you had a great ending to the day!

    Good luck on the run today!

  • whitney September 10, 2010, 8:59 am

    good luck on your 15 miles.

    I have never thought of making an egg pizza but it looks and sounds awesome so I must try it.

    How is Trader Joe’s pesto?

    Did you know Operation Beautiful was featured on Jezebel yesterday? My interest in healthy living blogs and celebrity gossip collide. KA-POW

    • Caitlin September 10, 2010, 10:13 am

  • Lauren @ September 10, 2010, 10:09 am

    Good luck with the 15 miles!!!

  • Jess September 10, 2010, 11:18 am

    Your egg pizza looks so delicious that I almost made it for breakfast!

    I love how you are always so adventurous in the kitchen and how willing you are to try new things – I kept wondering what I was going to do with the flatbread, veggies, cheese, and half a dozen eggs I have on hand. Now my refrigerator thanks you for an excellent idea for something I can whip up!

  • Jean@RoastedRootsandPumpkinSpice September 10, 2010, 1:27 pm

    That egg pizza looks delicious! Very pretty and colorful.

  • Debby September 10, 2010, 3:46 pm

    Those enchiladas should also be good with tempeh 🙂

  • Sana September 10, 2010, 8:08 pm

    As epic as bowling is. Fro-yo RULES!
