Snowman Breakfast Pizza by Jodie Fitz

PICS cauliflower pizza crust (two pack)

2 cups fresh baby leaf spinach

8 PICS eggs, large

1/4-cup PICS low fat milk

8 oz. PICS sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

Fresh veggies

PICS nonstick canola cooking spray

PICS canola oil

Sea salt 

Black pepper

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Coat a baking sheet with a nonstick cooking spray.  Lay the two pizza crusts onto the baking sheet overlapping them slightly to create your snowman shape.

Baste the crusts with a very light layer of canola oil.

Chop the spinach into small pieces and evenly distribute that on top of the pizza crusts.

In a microwave safe bowl coated with nonstick cooking spray, whisk the eggs, milk, sea salt and pepper. Microwave the mixture for 2 minutes, remove and stir. Repeat until the eggs are cooked, using two-minute intervals, 4 to 6 minutes total.

Spread the scrambled eggs onto the pizza crusts.

Top it off with the shredded cheese.

Add fresh veggies to create a snowman by adding two eyes, a nose, a mouth and buttons. 

Bake for 15 – 20 minutes.
