Scrambled Egg “Pizza”

I realize you might be thinking that Scrambled Egg Pizza sounds really… interesting (to put it nicely).

I suppose it does!

However, when I was making this the other day, Dave mentioned that it looked like a pizza cooking on our huge round frying pan — and as I thought about it a bit more, I realized that almost all the ingredients I use for this recipe are also pizza toppings (besides scrambled eggs).

Thus “Scrambled Egg Pizza”!

And for those of your watching your carbs — you’ll be delighted to know this “pizza” dosen’t have a crust!

We often serve this meal for dinner along with fried potatoes, toast, and bacon… delicious!

Recipe for Scrambled Egg “Pizza”

Makes 4-6 servings.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 T. oil or butter
  • 1 small onion; chopped
  • 1/2 c. peppers; chopped (I always keep a bag of chopped peppers in the freezer for this purpose)
  • 4-8 eggs; scrambled
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 t. garlic powder
  • 1/2 c. ham; chopped
  • 1/2 c. ground sausage; cooked and crumbled
  • 1/4 c. diced tomatoes
  • 1 avocado; thinly sliced
  • 1/2 c. shredded cheese (we used cheddar)

NOTE: please, please, PLEASE do not feel like you have to follow this recipe exactly to get tasty results. The only reason I provided an ingredients list and “exact” measurements is because otherwise I’ll get 100 emails asking for these things :) I don’t use measuring cups or a recipe when I make this and it’s never ever turned out less then yummy!

This recipe is basically just scrambled eggs with whatever your favorite mix-ins are — so please just use your own tastebuds as a guide. Play around with it and make a yummy scrambled egg pizza YOUR family will love!

DIRECTIONS:

  • Heat butter/oil in a large covered frying pan
  • Sauté onions and peppers on medium heat until cooked through
  • Pour eggs over the veggies in a thin layer (I like to swirl the pan around so the egg batter covers the entire bottom of the pan)
  • After about a minute, turn the heat down to medium low
  • Sprinkle salt, peper, and garlic powder over the eggs
  • Sprinkle and/or   place ham, sausage, tomatoes, avocado, and cheese evenly over eggs
  • Cover pan and let cook until eggs are no longer runny and cheese is very melted
  • Eat and enjoy!

NOTE: If your pan is too hot, the bottom of your eggs will get very brown (possibly even burn) so if you sense this is the case, all you need to do is stir up your eggs.

It will still taste the same, it will just look more like scrambled eggs then one large flat egg pizza.

And as you can probably see, we don’t cut this into slices like a pizza either :)

It’s basically just a really simple omelette that doesn’t require flipping the eggs or a pretty presentation. We LOVE breakfast for dinner, and this recipe is definitely a ‘keeper’.

    Isn’t that just a frittata?

    No, it’s not a “frittata” because this cooks only on the stove top — not in the oven. My non-stick pans that I use for eggs can’t go in the oven so this is a nice alternative. It’s also much “lighter” than a frittata — more like scrambled eggs. Plus, you don’t have to turn your oven on!

    That sounds even better! I love not turning on my oven. It’s too hot!

    We eat this about once a month on a much smaller scale–2 eggs. And you’re right any mix-in’s make this a yummy dinner.

    Thank you for posting the ingredients and measurements. I have friends who really need those. I must provide them with an exact recipe or they feel complete angst and are lost. I don’t usually use an exact recipe so it can be harder for me to provide one! However, I do understand that there are things that make me anxious that don’t make others freak out and vice versa. I looked up frittata as suggested by 545 and the recipe bakes theirs. That might be easier for someone who is not so confident in the kitchen.

    Thanks Demaroge, but this recipe really isn’t like a frittata. As I mentioned in a previous comment, it’s much lighter and doesn’t require you to transfer your pan to the oven.

    We love to mek this. For us, it is just scrambled eggs with veggies. We all love it, and I put in whatever we have. Peppers, onions, tomatoes, mushrooms, cheese, sometimes avocado, sometimes ham. My two boys (2 and 4) absolutely love it and I love it when I can eat some veggies. It’s perfect. :)

    Andrea, your picture looks sooo yummy! I always make boring eggs, so I really want to try your recipe (I’m always trying to get my son to eat eggs since they’re so nutritious, maybe he will try this!). Thanks for the recipe and great dinner idea! Jenny C.
