Pizza Omelet Recipe
Pizza for breakfast is one of life's joys. An omelet full of saucy, cheesy goodness, spicy pepperoni, and tender eggs, is a good way to make it happen.
- Serves: 1 person
- 4eggs (beaten)
- Salt and pepper
- ½teaspoon olive oil
- 2tablespoons tomato sauce (warmed)
- 2tablespoons mozzarella cheese (shredded)
- ¼cup pepperoni (chopped)
- Garnish: chopped basil, chopped parsley
Step 1Gather the ingredients.
Step 2Beat eggs with a whisk until and whites are completely combined. Season eggs with salt and pepper.
Step 3Heat olive oil in a non-stick or cast iron skillet over medium-low heat. Swirl the olive oil to completely coat pan. Then turn heat down to low.
Step 4Add eggs to pan, swirling quickly to cover the bottom. Adjust heat if needed, ensuring that the bottom doesn't brown too quickly.
Step 5Use a rubber spatula to move eggs from edge to center, exposing parts of the pan so that the egg can completely cook. Then leave eggs undisturbed and let cook until omelet is almost set.
Step 6When omelet is almost set, spoon warmed tomato sauce over half of it. Cover tomato sauce with pepperoni and shredded cheese. Cook for 30 seconds, until bottom is just about to brown.
Step 7Fold omelet in half. Cook for another 30 seconds or so, until cheese is melted and everything is heated through. Serve with chopped basil or parsley, if desired.
