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.
An omelet is nice way to cook with kids, because they can help break eggs and whisk them and even little ones can put ingredients in bowls. Let them choose the toppings and help to sprinkle the sauce, cheese, and pepperoni onto this protein-packed choice for any time of the day.
4 large eggs
1/4 teaspoon salt , or to taste
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon olive oil
2 tablespoons warmed tomato sauce
1/4 cup pepperoni, chopped
2 tablespoons mozzarella cheese, shredded
2 tablespoons chopped basil, optional, for garnish
2 tablespoons chopped parsley, optional, for garnish
Gather the ingredients.
Beat eggs with a whisk until and whites are completely combined. Season eggs with salt and pepper.
Heat olive oil in a non-stick or cast iron skillet over medium-low heat. Swirl the olive oil to completely coat pan. Then turn heat down to low.
Add eggs to pan, swirling quickly to cover the bottom. Adjust
heat if needed, ensuring that the bottom doesn't brown too quickly.
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.
When omelet is almost set, spoon warmed tomato sauce over half of it. Cover tomato sauce with pepperoni and shredded cheese. Cook for 30 seconds, until bottom is just about to brown.
Fold omelet in half. Cook for another 30 seconds or so, until cheese is melted and everything is heated through. Serve with chopped basil or parsley, if desired.
- Pick a pizza sauce that you really love. It will provide most of the flavor in the omelet. You can also make your own homemade pizza sauce.
