Breakfast Naan/Pizza with Arugula  -   Sharon Kobayashi

4 Servings


Naan* or whole wheat pita bread, low salt    4 each

Marinara sauce                                                1/4 cup

Parmesan cheese, freshly grated - (1 oz)        4 tbsp.

Eggs                                                                 4 each

Arugula, finely sliced - (about 1 oz)               1 cup


      *Naan is an Indian flat bread.  The Indialife brand seems to have less salt and fat that other forms of flat bread.  Can be substituted with any low/no salt corn tortilla or flat bread


1.   Pre-heat oven to 400°.

2.   Spray each flat bread on one side with cooking spray.

3.   Lay flat bread (spray side down) on baking sheet.

4.   Top each with 1 tbsp. Marinara sauce, spread to thin layer.

5.   Sprinkle 1 tbsp. cheese and crack an egg onto each flatbread.

6.   Bake for about 12 to 15 minutes, or until egg is set.

7.   Place each pizza on a plate.  Sprinkle each with 1/4 cup arugula.

8.   Serve immediately.


For easy, fresh grated Parmesan, dice a small quantity at a time (3-4 oz) from the block.  Pulse in

food processor until grated consistency.  Keep in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator.
