I love a good omelet. But even I can get bored with using the same meats and cheeses.
It can also be hard when juggling a low carb diet, especially if you are like me and get stuck in a rut.
There are a few reasons why this recipe is so awesome. Great, now I will be singing “Everything is Awesome” for the rest of the day.
1. If you want pizza but don’t want all the crazy calories or ingredients of the dough, eggs are the perfect solution.
2. It takes mere minutes to make.
3. It’s suitable to have breakfast for dinner.
Sounds perfect, right?
My mom started making these many, many (many) years ago when I was in my 20s. These were made for dinner as her signature ‘quick meal.’
I hadn’t really thought about them in a long time. Maybe I just ate so many I wanted to block it out of my mind for a while. As I was sitting here the other day trying to figure out something to make for dinner that was low in sugar and low in carbs it came to me that I could have pizza and just use eggs. Oh wait, mom did that! I can do that. I know how that tastes. Yes, I talk to myself when I am home alone. Happens every time.
If you know how to make an omelet, you are in luck. If you don’t, it’s just like making a fried egg, only scrambled and scrambled only you don’t scramble it up.
Let me rephrase that. To make an omelet is like making a friend egg in that you’ll be flipping an egg, or two, or three. It’s like scrambled egg in that you are going to crack a few eggs in a bowl and whisk them together. If you want a thin omelet, stick to eggs. If you want one that’s a little fluffier you can add some skim milk but just know that will change your sugar and carb macro. I have not done it with coconut and almond milk, but assuming it’s like baking, I doubt the eggs will fluff up much.
I use a small frying pan. As a matter of fact, this one is the Green Earth pan. I just love it and still continue to use it on a weekly (almost daily) basis.
I whisked together a few eggs, put a tiny bit of coconut oil in the pan and then poured the eggs in.
I left them alone as they cooked. Using a spatula I flipped them. Once flipped I put some low sugar pizza sauce on one side. You could add meat if you would like. I didn’t have any as we made thin crust pizza’s a few days prior. Turkey pepperoni or regular both taste really well. You could also use ground sausage.
Instead of mozzarella I used an Italian blend. Gives it a bit more flavor.
Then I folded the half over.
Plated it with some cheese and parsley.

Thanks….now I will be singing “Everything is Awesome” all day, too! LOL. I love a good omelette, but I can only eat them once in a while. I am not sure what it is, but they don’t always sit tell with me.
Okay, I’m totally checking out the other low carb pizzas – they sound great! I normally don’t eat eggs. I just don’t have the taste for them, I guess.
I went through that for a while when I was younger. We had eggs once in a while, mostly weekend breakfast or we used them in recipes. When I met my husband he had chickens. I got stuck on eating good wholesome eggs all the time.

Minus the cheese and I am ALL OVER THIS! I actually shouldn’t be eating eggs either, but I would risk it for this! 🙂

I love omelettes. They are one of my favorite breakfast dishes. I load mine up with veggies and cheese. YUM!
I love omelettes but I have never thought to make a pizza one before. It sounds good.
This is a great PIZZA. It was my turn to cook in the dorm. Everyone enjoyed it. I put some Italian seasoning into the sauce.
I am glad it worked out for you and everyone enjoyed it. Win!

This is such a genius idea for low-carb pizza!! What’s great is that it can be made for either breakfast or dinner.
I agree. I have had it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It’s so easy and quick.
Crystal, that looks good! I cannot get an omelet to look the way it is supposed to – it comes out more like a scrambled egg with stuff in it! Glad you linked up with us at Home Matters Linky party!
Thank you! I think this is a tale of practice makes perfect. I love omelets and have been making them since I was really young.
