Brunch Lover’s Pizza & Renovation Update

Brunch PizzaGive yourself permission to have pizza for brunch, at least once in awhile. Especially if it’s this kind of pizza. Whole-wheat naan bread topped with guacamole, baby kale, salsa, a sunny side up egg and, of course, a sprinkle of bacon.  No prep or clean-up required and all you need is a grill (in our case, a mini grill) and a microwave for the bacon. Because when your kitchen, or entire house, is undergoing renovation, every meal is made on the grill or in the microwave. Including brunch.

Isn’t everything is better with an egg on top?

Here’s how we made the pizzas:

Brunch Pizzas

Serves: 2

Time: 10 minutes


  • 2 whole-wheat naan
  • 2 large eggs (or in our case 4, 3 for the hubby)
  • Large handful baby kale
  • 2 100-calorie packs of Wholly Guacamole (or 4 tablespoons homemade guac)
  • 2 tablespoons salsa
  • 2 pieces cooked and crumbled bacon


Microwave bacon between paper towels until crisp. Heat grill to medium. Spray a square of tinfoil (large enough to hold the number of eggs you’re cooking) with cooking spray and place on grill. Crack the eggs onto the foil, close the grill and let cook 5-7 minutes or until desired doneness. We like our whites set but yolks slightly runny. Remove eggs from grill. Put naan bread on grill for about 2 minutes then flip. Spread naan with guac then top with ½ the kale, 1 tablespoon of salsa, 1 egg and ½ the crumbled bacon. Close grill. Grill for 2-3 more minutes until greens are wilted. Remove from grill, salt and pepper to taste and enjoy.

And, for those of you who have asked, here are some pictures of how the kitchen reno is coming.

Making progress in March.


And more progress in early April. Did I mention all this work is done by Adrian? Pretty impressive. We’re hoping the kitchen is gorgeous and usable by June. Stay tuned…

    Pizza looks yummy, but the kitchen is even more exciting. Can’t wait to see the finished project!

      @Janice, I was just talking about YOUR gorgeous kitchen and the Lamb dinner yesterday! It’s been a lot of work, but we’ve having fun so far. And we’re exhausted :). Will keep on posting updates.
