Makes : 5 servings
Prep Time : 10 minutes
Cook Time : 8 minutes

1 lb (0.5 kg) store-bought whole wheat pizza dough
1/2 cup (125 mL)extra-virgin olive oil
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 pkg (200 g each) fresh mozzarella, thinly sliced
2 cups (500 mL) baby spinach leaves
4 large ripe tomatoes, thinly sliced
5 eggs
Salt and pepper

In a saucepan, heat oil and garlic over medium heat, about 4 minutes. Let sit for 10 minutes. Strain and let cool. Discard garlic. (Make-ahead: Cover and keep for up to 4 days).
On a lightly floured surface, divide dough into 5 equal portions. (You can use the top of a plastic bin or cutting board, when camping).
Shape each portion of dough into approximately ½ inch (1.5 cm) thick rustic 7 inch (18 cm) disks. Put disks on a lightly oiled rimmed baking sheet. Dust top with flour and top with sheet of oiled parchment paper. (Make-ahead: cover up to 2 hours)
Slide dough rounds, on outdoor grill and cook over the fire. Cook each disk, one at a time, cook about 30 seconds or until grill marks appear on bottom of rounds, turn and grill on other side, about 1 minute. Transfer to clean work surface.
Brush each flatbread with garlic oil. Top with mozzarella slices, spinach and tomatoes. Break 1 egg into center of each flatbread.
Season flatbread with salt and pepper. Cover grill with greased foil paper and slide flatbread back onto greased aluminum foil on grill and cook tented with tinfoil until cheese is melted and egg is set, about 8 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand for 2 minutes before cutting. Continue process until all breakfast flatbreads are finished.

Tips:
- You can mix and match the flatbread topping based on what your kids like. Sweet red pepper, thinly sliced black forest ham, shredded cheddar cheese, mushrooms or salami can all be substituted for the above ingredients, just don’t forget the eggs—the star of the Breakfast Flatbread!
- These campfire gems can be made in your own back yard, using a barbecue or portable grill. Set up a tent and make it a backyard adventure for you and the kids.

Variation:
Huevos Rancheros Breakfast Flatbread: Spread 1 cup (250 mL) homemade or store-bought chili over cooked pizza dough rounds. Sprinkle each round with shredded cheddar cheese; top each with egg and follow with cooking method above.
