Pizza Omelet - Oh Ya - Pizza for Breakfast

Pizza Omelet - Nourish With Karen

Looking for a fun, hardy breakfast that will send the kids off to school with full tummies and the nutrition to get through the morning?  This ought to do it.  When I was in junior high school our home economics teacher taught us to make a pizza omelet and from then on, it was a must have for every sleepover my girlfriends and I had.  It is a recipe that has stuck around and our family makes it every now and then.  



Personal Pan Pizza Omelet

  • 2 eggs well beaten
  • your favourite pizza toppings sauted
  • pizza sauce
  • cheese of choice (make sure it is SCD legal, if you follow the diet)
  • oil for the bottom of the pan

Choose toppings of your choice:  pepperoni, ham, peppers, onions, pineapple, etc.  and saute them lightly.  

Heat oil in the bottom of a small fry pan (8" or smaller works best for a 2 egg omelet). When the pan is hot, add the well beaten eggs.  When the egg has started to set up on the bottom, gently lift the edge with a thin lifter (metal works best), tilt the pan in the direction that you have lifted it so raw egg mixture runs under the edge.  Continue working the pan like this until the egg is mostly cooked.  At this point you can put a little water into the pan and cover with a lid to steam until cooked. 

Turn the pan to medium-low, spread pizza sauce over egg and then have fun adding toppings.  Lightly cover with cheese and allow it to melt.  

Carefully remove from pan.  It may be helpful to cut into wedges before removing!
