Skinny Breakfast Pizza Melt

Print Friendly

Pizza for breakfast?  You bet, with this healthy, vegetarian breakfast melt!  To make it skinny I’m using one of those fabulous 100 calorie sandwich thins, egg whites, a little reduced-fat cheese and pizza sauce.  Each pizza melt has 215 calories, 6 grams of fat, 5 grams of fiber and 6 Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS.  It’s so easy to assemble and ready in minutes. Here’s to a breakfast the whole family will love!

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 4 minutes


Ingredients

2 egg whites

1 tablespoon onions or green onions, chopped

1 Oroweat Sandwich Thin or your favorite, see shopping tips

1 teaspoon reduced-fat butter

1½ tablespoons pizza sauce or marinara sauce

1 slice (¾ oz) Sargento Light Provolone cheese or your favorite light cheese, see shopping tips


Instructions

1. Preheat Panini maker or George Foreman grill. This melt can also be cooked in a nonstick pan. See step #5 below.

2. Pour 2 egg whites into a custard cup or small bowl to create a round shape. Sprinkle in onions. Cover with a microwave-safe plate and cook in microwave for 1-2 minutes until cook through.

3. Spread the outside of the sandwich thin, both top and bottom, with ½ teaspoon of butter on each. Split open and spread the inside of the bottom slice with pizza sauce. On top of sauce place cooked eggs and top with 1 slice of cheese. Place remaining top piece of sandwich thin, butter side out.

4. To cook in Panini maker or George Foreman grill: Place in maker and cook for 3-4 minutes until melted and golden brown. Remove with a spatula as the cheese oozes out a bit while cooking. Remove any melted pieces on the Panini maker and add to plate. I love it that way!

5. To cook in pan on stove top: Be sure to coat a nonstick pan with cooking spray. Cook over medium heat for about 2-3 minutes until golden, turn over and continue to cook for another 2-3 minutes until cheese is melted and the sandwich thin is golden brown.

6. Serve with a fork and knife.

Makes 1 serving


Healthy Benefit

Pizza does not have to be junk food. This breakfast pizza melt has over 5 grams of fiber, thanks to using a sandwich thin, lean protein from the egg whites and reduced-fat cheese.


Shopping Tips

Oroweat Sandwich Thins can be found in most large supermarkets. One sandwich thin has 100 calories, 1g fat and 5g fiber. They come in several flavors with the same nutrition facts. Several brands are available so if you can’t find Oroweat, use one of the others brands.

Sargento reduced-fat provolone cheese can be found in the cheese aisle of most supermarkets. Each slice is ¾ ounce. You can substitute with your favorite reduced-fat sliced cheese or shredded such as a mozzarella, Jarlsberg or Havarti.


Cooking Tip

If you’re looking to make several melts at once, you can scramble the egg whites in a nonstick pan. Either coat the pan with cooking spray or melt about a teaspoon of reduced-fat butter in the pan first before adding the eggs to scramble.

    I love the idea of “pizza” for breakfast! So often I don’t feel like the typical yogurt, cereal, etc. This would be filling enough to keep me satiated for the entire morning, too!
