Breakfast Naan Pizzas for Easter

It may not be Easter anymore but this Naan Pizza is still good to eat anytime of the day, even if its not breakfast anymore! Once Upon a Cutting board shares with us this wheat based naan and mozzarella filled dish that turns out to be a pizza. Its not only interesting in its foreign culture fusion, its also pizza! 

Ingredients:
2 whole wheat naan breads
~1/2 cup mozzarella cheese (cheddar, pepper jack, or your favourite cheese would also work)
~2 tablespoons parmesan cheese (optional)
Bell pepper slices (red, yellow, orange, or green) – you will only need about 8 thin slices total, depending on the design you want to make
2 large eggs
Salt and pepper
1 green onion, thinly sliced

Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.  Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray and lay 2 naans on the baking sheet.  Cover each naan with mozzarella cheese, leaving a thin border around the edge (you may want to use more mozzarella, depending on the size of your naan – just use your best judgment).  Sprinkle with a bit of parmesan cheese.  Lay bell pepper slices in a decorative pattern to resemble an easter egg.  Crack one egg onto the center of each naan.  Season with salt and pepper.  Bake in preheated oven for around 12 minutes, until egg is set.  Sprinkle with green onion (also in a pattern, if desired) and serve immediately.

Note: Try mixing up the toppings and cheese for different flavour combinations!  You could also add a light sauce on the base if you like - I've tried them with barbeque sauce which I loved!
