Shakshuka Pita Pizza
 4 toufayan whole wheat pitas
 4 eggs
 1 cup marinara sauce or basic tomato sauce
 1 cup crumbled feta or shredded mozzarella (or both and let everyone top their own)
 1-2 cups baby spinach, chopped (optional)
 1/2 tsp cumin
 1/2 tsp sweet paprika
 Salt and pepper, to taste
1

Preheat your oven on the (high) broil setting. Arrange a rack in the middle of the oven. Place a baking sheet in the oven to preheat along with the oven.

2

In a small pot or a bowl, heat your marinara sauce, along with the cumin and paprika, on the stove or in the microwave.

3

Meanwhile, lay out your pitas. If they are sort of scooped, place it so the scoop is up as this will help hold the egg in place.

4

When the sauce is hot, spoon ¼ cup out onto each pita and spread it out. Sprinkle your cheese of choice on top, but especially around the edges, which will help to create a barrier for the egg as well.

5

If are having spinach, sprinkle that around the edges as well.

6

Crack your eggs into the middle of the pitas. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

7

Take your baking sheet out of the oven and top with a piece of parchment paper. Gently and carefully move your pitas onto the baking sheet.

8

Broil for 7-8 minutes or until the egg white is set but the yolk is still runny. Put each pizza onto a plate, cut into four pieces, and serve immediately.
