In college my idea of the perfect breakfast was cold pizza, and every pizza had to have pepperoni and black olives. So I guess it’s not surprising that when the idea for a low-carb Egg-Crust Breakfast Pizza popped into my mind a few years ago, it had to be pepperoni and olive breakfast pizza. And through the years I have enjoyed this quick breakfast idea so much that I’m featuring it as my Friday Favorites pick for this week.

I love making this for a quick breakfast that’s loaded with flavor. If the idea of pepperoni and olives for breakfast doesn’t appeal to you, please try this egg-crust pizza with your own favorite pizza toppings.

And he best thing about this breakfast pizza is definitely the pizza flavors but the fact that this can be on the table in 20 minutes (or maybe even a little less) makes it even better; enjoy!

How to Make Egg-Crust Breakfast Pizza:

(Scroll down for complete printable recipe with nutritional infirmation.)

  1. Beat two eggs until they’re well mixed.
  2. Get your seasonings ready.  (And don’t you love my well-used spice jars?  I keep my spices in drawers so they need labels on the top.)
  3. For this breakfast pizza I used thinly sliced grape tomatoes, thinly sliced black olives, pepperoni cut in half, and cubes of mozzarella.
  4. Heat some olive oil in an 8 inch non-stick omelet pan over medium heat.
  5. I used this Calphalon 8-Inch Nonstick Omelet Pan (affiliate link) which I love! 
  6. Add the egg, season with Spike Seasoning (affiliate link) and Dried Oregano (affiliate link), and cook until eggs are about half set.
  7. Then add half the tomatoes, pepperoni, olives, and mozzarella, followed by another layer of the four ingredients. 
  8. Be sure to end with cheese so there’s some cheese on the top.  (When I didn’t layer the ingredients, the heavier things sunk to the bottom.)
  9. Cover the pan and cook 3-4 minutes, until eggs are not quite completely set.
  10. The next photo is how it looked when I put it under the broiler, followed by the after shot.  This was about 4 minutes in my toaster-oven broiler, but probably less time in a large oven broiler.
  11. Delicious! And almost as good as cold pizza for breakfast!

Notes

I use this Calphalon 8-Inch Nonstick Omelet Pan (affiliate link) which I love! You’ll need an 8-inch nonstick omelet pan to make a breakfast pizza that looks like mine.  (When I used a bigger pan, I didn’t like it as well with more egg.)
