Everyone loves pizza, right? So, naturally, if you like omelets, you're going like this pizza omelet. It's one of those foods that you can serve as either breakfast-for-dinner or dinner-for-breakfast. It's full of gooey mozzarella cheese, spicy chopped pepperoni, and a simple tomato sauce but instead of a crust, you fold it all inside of delicate fluffy eggs. It's the perfect vessel for all of the cheesy and saucy goodness.

  5. Use 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.
