If you follow me on Instagram you know of my absolute love and obsession for pizza frittata’s. This idea came about one night when I was really craving pizza, but didn’t want to feel like crap the next day or spend any extra money. Usually I’ll make tiny pizza bites, which are turkey pepperoni (I have a pork sensitivity) with a dollop of spaghetti sauce and some cheese and then thrown under the broiler to melt the cheese. Tasty in a pinch, but not exactly what I was craving. As I looked into the abyss of the fridge I thought maybe, just maybe, I could use eggs as a “crust”. They’re fairly mild in flavor and frittata’s are definitely one of my go-to’s…THIS JUST MIGHT WORK! Spoiler alert: it did. And it was everything I’d hoped it could be!
The amazing part about these pizza frittata’s is that you can add the same exact toppings you would on a regular pizza. For this one I sautéed some onions and sweet bell peppers in a pot with a combo of coconut oil and ghee, then added 3 scramble eggs. Let the bottom cook and then throw under the broiler on high (middle rack) until top is just cooked. Remove from oven and add spaghetti sauce, pepperoni and cheese. Place back under the broiler until cheese melts. Easy peasy and extremely customizable! I’ve done a variety of veggies, pepperoni, ground italian sausage, and many types of cheese. And let me tell you, the spaghetti sauce is key. I made it once without it on accident and it was not pizza like AT ALL! So don’t make my mistake and you will continually have a super yummy pizza alternative.
