Now that the New Year is here, it's time to start thinking about those resolutions! I know that my mom and I have already started ours, and are going on a more low-carb and keto friendly route for the next month (and perhaps beyond).
With a big resolution, you can still have bold flavor. So, we've been working on coming up with fun and clever meal options that meet our new low-carb wants and needs. That's when I decided to bring out this Low-Carb Breakfast Mexican Pizza. Yeah, you know the Mexican pizza that this idea stems from. But, this one is a breakfast version and it's so sooo good.
I started this Low-Carb Breakfast Mexican Pizza out with Mission® Carb Balance Tortillas. They give you the best of both worlds by supporting a healthier lifestyle where you get to enjoy the food and flavors you want without sacrificing your New Year’s resolutions. Mission’s Carb Balance Tortillas taste just like regular tortillas and they crisped up for me perfectly in the oven for these pizzas. Plus, they only contain 6g of net carbs per serving and are an excellent source of fiber.
The Carb Balance Tortillas are soft, delicious, and great for all kinds of meals and snacks. You can enjoy them on your own or with your friends and family! Finally, you don’t have to sacrifice taste and quality in order to deliver benefits for those with dietary restrictions.
I baked the Carb Balance Tortillas to get them to crisp up just enough to give me that 'Mexican pizza' crust texture that I was looking for in these tortillas. Preparing the tortillas warm is best for full flavor. I then loaded them up with eggs, cheese, and just a touch of Pico de Gallo...actually, maybe a little bit more.
For now, these Low-Carb Breakfast Mexican Pizzas will be our go-to breakfast option. If you're wanting to take it even further, try adding some bacon or crumbled breakfast sausage! I added some plain Greek yogurt, a touch of guacamole, and some salsa to mine.
