There isn’t anything revolutionary about this, but it fills a craving for an off limits food of mine. Pizza! Don’t get me wrong, I CAN make up a gluten free crust; that’s easy. But to have pizza without real cheese and no real pizza sauce (usually has sugar) doesn’t allow for having the taste I remember. I DO love some gluten and dairy free pizza-like recipes, but they aren’t specifically a substitute, they’re just something else that I can make.
Strangely, this omelet that I accidentally stumbled across tasted so much like pizza I’m in love with it! The texture of the eggs gives a sort of pseudo cheese feel; i even had a friend ask me why I put cheese in the eggs because they knew I didn’t eat cheese! And the tomatoes and veggies act like sauce and topping. Add some Italian seasoning (or Oregano) and its complete! I have yet to put this on a crust, but I don’t think its necessary. I like it like an omelet!
Pizza Style Omelet
1/4 sweet white onion
1/4 green bell pepper
1 whole romaine tomato
Italian Seasoning (or Oregano)
Cover a frying pan with olive oil (a smaller pan is better so you can use less oil, but sometimes I splurge and use a little extra) and turn onto medium heat. While it heats up, finely chop the onion, green pepper, and tomato. Add to the oil and cook until the veggies become soft at least on the edges (or when the white of the onions starts to turn translucent). Cover the veggies with Italian seasoning, a small amount of onion powder, and salt. Crack both eggs over the mixture and break the yokes. I actually treat the eggs and veggies like they are scrambled eggs. So I guess its not technically an omelet, but it would be easy to do it that way.
And that’s it! I find it makes a great choice for dinner because I can come home from work and be eating a warm and tasty (well balanced!) meal in 15 minutes.
This is a single serving for me, but it makes up a whole meal. Sometimes if I also feed The Boy, we’ll have a small side like rice or potatoes and then it makes a nice meal for two!
