1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2. Line two baking sheets with aluminum foil and cover with nonstick spray (or use two nonstick baking sheets instead.)
3. Place 4 pieces of flatbread on each baking sheet. (If your baking sheets are very small, you can always make fried egg flatbread in several batches.)
4. Coat each flatbread with 2 tablespoons of olive oil using the back of a spoon to evenly distribute it on the flatbread surface.
5. Place baby spinach pieces, onion slices, lemon juice, kosher salt and black pepper in a mixing bowl. Toss ingredients well. Divide ingredients between the 8 pieces of flatbread.
6. Cook bacon pieces in a skillet at medium-high heat until the bacon is crispy. Transfer cooked bacon to a plate lined with paper towels. Allow bacon to cool for 5 minutes before placing it onto the 8 pieces of flatbread on top of the spinach mixture. Sprinkle all flatbreads with mozzarella cheese.
7. Place flatbreads in the oven for 5 minutes.
8. Remove flatbreads from the oven. Crack 1 egg over each flatbread. Return flatbreads to the oven to cook eggs for about 7 minutes.
9. Remove flatbreads the from the oven and serve immediately.
