Bacon and eggs are taking their show on the road, beyond breakfast. We'd eat this pretty much any time of day...
Cook: 15 minutes
1 stick light string cheese
1/4 cup light or low-fat ricotta cheese
1 tsp. reduced-fat Parmesan-style grated topping
1 high-fiber pita
1 large egg
1 tbsp. precooked real crumbled bacon (like the kind by Oscar Mayer)
Optional: salt and black pepper
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.
Break string cheese into thirds and place in a blender or food processor, blending at high speed until shredded. (Or pull cheese into shreds and roughly chop.)
In a small bowl, mix ricotta cheese, shredded string cheese, and Parmesan. If you like, season with salt and pepper.
Lay pita on the baking sheet and spread with cheese mixture, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Bake until hot and lightly browned at the edges, 10 - 12 minutes.
Meanwhile, bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat. Add egg and cook per your preference.
Sprinkle pizza with bacon and top with the egg.
