I love spinach. I love eggs. I love garlic pita bread. Throw them together and you have yourself a mini pizza. It’s a stellar option for a quick and easy lunch.

I don’t have chooks, but my friend Yolanda does. That means lots of yummy free-range eggs. I grow my own spinach, which means lots of yummy organic greens. And I grow my own thyme (I’m a regular gardening goddess). Seriously, it’s so easy. A child could do it. If you want to grow thyme too, find out how here.

I’m not such a kitchen goddess that I make my own pita bread, though I could, if I wanted to and I had the time. But the store-bought variety is just as good for my purposes. Especially since I can keep them on hand in the freezer.


I used tomato paste on the base, but if you don’t have tomato paste on hand, use tomato sauce or chutney – whatever you have in the fridge. Next time I might use my own sugar free chutney for a slightly different flavour. I also buy my mozzarella cheese already grated, to save time.


Garlic pita bread (1 per person)
Tomato paste (or tomato sauce/chutney)
Grated mozzarella cheese
Fresh or dried thyme
Egg (1 per person)
Spinach leaves

1. Lightly toast the pita bread on one side under the grill.

2. Remove from oven and spread tomato paste on the untoasted side of your pita bread. Sprinkle with grated mozzarella cheese and fresh or dried thyme.

3. Place the pita bread back under the grill until the cheese has melted and the pita bread is lightly toasted.

4. While the pita is under the grill, heat water in a saucepan and poach egg/s. Add spinach to the same saucepan to wilt.

5. Drain spinach and place around the edges of your pita pizza. Top with your egg. Season with salt and pepper if desired, and fresh thyme.





  1. Yum and easy peasy, just what the doctor ordered. Love the cartoon ::-)
