OK, so we've been eating pizza-inspired breakfasts for years now (not to mention the occasional slice of cold pizza in the morning), but this is REAL no-guilt pizza for the A.M.!
Prepare bacon according to package directions, either in the microwave or in a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray. Chop or crumble and set aside.
Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat on the stove. Add egg substitute and scramble until fully cooked. Remove from heat and set aside.
Place tortilla on a baking sheet sprayed with nonstick spray. Bake in the oven for 5 - 6 minutes per side. Once slightly crispy, remove from oven, but do not turn oven off.
Meanwhile, break string cheese into thirds and place in a food processor or blender -- blend at high speed until cheese takes on a shredded or grated consistency. (Or just tear string cheese into pieces and roughly chop.) Set aside.
Spread crushed tomatoes over the tortilla, leaving a 1/2-inch border around the edge. Sprinkle with a dash or more of Italian seasoning. Evenly distribute scrambled eggs over the tomatoes. Top evenly with shredded/grated string cheese, onion, pepper, and bacon.
Bake in the oven for 8 - 10 minutes, until pizza is hot and cheese has melted. If you like, top with some Parm-style grated topping. Slice it into quarters and eat up!!!

HG Alternative! If you can't find purple spuds, grab a small red-skinned potato. It won't be as beautiful, but it'll work fine.
HG Tip! If you're noshing solo, only bake two of the mini pizzas. Wrap the others in plastic wrap and freeze for another time -- then just thaw, bake, and eat!
