1 large brown onion, halved, thinly sliced
2 teaspoons smoked paprika
2 x 410g cans tomato and paste with capsicum
4 eggs, at room temperature
4 rounds pita bread
1/2 cup roast garlic tzatziki


Step 1 Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. Heat oil in a medium frying pan over medium-high heat. Add onion. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until softened. Add paprika. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until fragrant. Add tomato and 3/4 cup cold water. Season. Bring to a simmer.

Step 2 Wrap pita bread in foil and place in oven. Cook for 5 minutes or until warm. Make 4 holes in tomato mixture. Crack 1 egg into each hole. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, covered, for 5 minutes or until eggs are cooked to your liking.
