I made it with flat bread which shaved off 20 calories and a red pesto. Very delicious

Tasty and fast breakfast I used Egg Beaters, and it worked wonderfully. We also substituted the cheese, but I think mozzarella would have been wonderful too. The amount of pesto is just perfect since the flavor is potent. I roasted my own red pepper, so it took a bit longer than 5 minutes. My husband and I will definitely have these again! Pros: Easy to make, filling, and flavorful.
