Low Carb Pizza Omelet

I know, I know....it sounds disgusting, but it's actually pretty good.  I've been trying to watch my carbs lately to try and shed a few pounds before the summer and a wedding that I'm in May 21st.  I found this recipe this weekend and tried it last night...and I'll have to say, I was very impressed with how tasty it was.

  • 3 eggs
  • splash of milk
  • salt and pepper
  • mozzarella cheese
  • pizza toppings (beef, sausage, pepperoni, green pepper, mushroom, onions, olives, whatever you like!)
  • pizza sauce
Scramble 3 eggs with a splash of milk or water. Pour into a medium-low, greased skillet.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Lift edges up and let runny egg spill over the edge until eggs are set.
Flip eggs over.

On one half layer cheese, pizza toppings, and more cheese.
Fold empty half onto layered half. Warm for 30 seconds to a minute.
Flip to the other side. Warm for another 30 seconds.

Top with sauce and garnish with shredded cheese. 


Tips:
  • Spaghetti sauce, seasoned tomato sauce, or salsa would all make great toppings
  • Turn your heat down once you fold the eggs over to avoid burning the omelet while melting the cheese.
  • I used 3 eggs because I have a 10 inch skillet.  This is a big omelet. Smaller skillet?  Fewer eggs.
  • If you prefer your veggies less fresh and crispy, saute them with a little butter before adding to the omelet.
