A healthy breakfast is SUPER DUPER patriotic. Don't you think? I mean, what says "I love America" more than fueling your metabolism in the morning?
This pizza, with it's ricotta and berry topping, can be grilled or cooked in the oven. Super easy- which is also very American!
Red, White and Blue Breakfast Pizzas
2/3 cup part skim ricotta cheese
2 tsp honey
1 cup blueberries, halved
4 large strawberries, stemmed and sliced
2 Tbsp ground walnuts
2 tortillas or other 8-10" pizza crusts
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a small blender combine ricotta cheese and honey. Mix until smooth.
Place tortillas or crusts on a baking sheet, and spread each with 1/3 cup ricotta mixture. Evenly spread 1/2 cup blueberries and 2 sliced strawberries on each, then sprinkle with 1 Tbsp ground walnuts.
Bake pizzas on the baking sheet on the middle rack of the oven for 5-6 minutes, then transfer pizzas directly to the rack for an additional 3-4 minutes, watching closely. When crusts are crisp, remove pizzas. Allow to cool for 2-3 minutes prior to cutting into slices and serving.
