Simply Healthy Family: Fancy Pants Eggs with Pizza Pie Crust


Fancy Pants Eggs with Pizza Pie Crust

 I know not all of my posts or recipes are as fancy as some of the ones out there, but you can always count on them being good for you and pretty simple to prepare. That's the name of the game here at Simply Healthy Family. I do try to mix it up a bit with some recipes that have unique flavours and ingredients but I try to keep it as simple as possible for the average person.  I hate to say it, but if I can make home made snacks and meals with 4 kids running around and on a limited budget, you can totally do it! Just keep checking in here for simple family friendly ideas!
Here is another super simple, uber healthy ( as my teenager would say) breakfast ( or dinner! ) you can be proud of.  My 5 year old named this dish. ;)

Fancy Pants Eggs with Pizza Pie Crust

For the eggs:
Really, you can use any veggies you'd like. This is how we like our fancy pants eggs.

eggs + 1 tablespoon milk or water
fresh spinach, chopped
Bella mushrooms, chopped
sun dried tomatoes ( not in oil) chopped
shallot, minced
Canadian bacon, chopped
1 teaspoon real butter
Grated Parmigiana-Romano cheese

Beat eggs ( how many ever you need to feed you or your family) with a tablespoon of milk or water.
In a non-stick, preferably NOT Teflon, over med-high heat add a small square of real butter.
Saute shallot or onion for 3 minutes. Add Canadian bacon, cook 2-3 more minutes.
Add mushrooms and sun dried tomatoes, cook 3 more minutes.
Pour in eggs, let sit 1 minute. Using a rubber spatula, push eggs towards center of pan working your way around entire pan. Let sit 1 more minute, add chopped spinach, push towards center of pan again, repeat till just done, about 4 minutes.
Remove from heat, sprinkle with grated Parmigiana-Romano Cheese.
Serve with this healthy herb flavored crust.

Pizza Pie Crust:

1/2 cups rolled oats

1/4 cup sesame seeds
3/4 cups whole wheat flour
2 tablespoons dried Thyme
2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup tepid water

Preheat oven to 350F

Spread the oats and sesame seeds on a baking sheet and toast in the oven for 8 minutes. Transfer the toasted oats and sesame seeds to the bowl of a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Add the flour, thyme, baking powder and salt and process until the oats are finely ground.

In a medium bowl or Mixer, whisk together the water and oil. Mix in the dry ingredients to form a dough.
Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to 1/4 inch thickness. Place the dough onto a baking sheet. Cover with foil or damp towel and keep refrigerated for 30 minutes.

Remove from fridge, remove towel and bake in oven for 15-20 minutes till golden brown.

*save foil so you can cover the crust in the oven if it starts getting to brown



  1. I adore eggs...we go through at least a dozen a week. They are simple, nutritious and always delicious! I love the name of this meal...your son has some talent. Thanks for sharing...I hope you have a fun-filled weekend!

  2. Your eggs are filled with so much good stuff and the pizza crust sounds healthy AND delicious, as always! Cute name, too. Fancy pants! ;)

  3. My kind of breakfast. I could wake up to this. Great name!

  4. LOVE new breakfast ideas. That's the one meal a day that really tends to get boring. Thanks for posting this!!

  5. Love this! I especially love the name. what's up with teflon? is it dangerous? I've been wondering that lately. Is it just teflon or all non-stick?

  6. In two to five minutes on a conventional stovetop, cookware coated with Teflon and other non-stick surfaces can exceed temperatures at which the coating breaks apart and emits toxic particles and gases linked to hundreds, perhaps thousands, of pet bird deaths and an unknown number of human illnesses each year, according to tests commissioned by Environmental Working Group (EWG).

    Teflon pans release at least six toxic gases, including two carcinogens, two global pollutants, and MFA, a chemical lethal to humans at low doses. At temperatures that DuPont scientists claim are reached on stovetop drip pans (1000°F), non-stick coatings break down to a chemical warfare agent known as PFIB, and a chemical analog of the WWII nerve gas phosgene.

    I use the Green Pan, cast iron and hard Anodized Cast Iron.

  7. I love the title of your recipe and blog post. The eggs look delightful too!
