This low carb breakfast pizza would be great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. An easy and tasty meal that is only 2.1g net carbs!
I love breakfast food, even though I’m not a huge breakfast eater. I can eat eggs any time of the day and when Sunday Supper came up with an egg theme for this week’s supper, I knew right away I wanted to make a low carb breakfast pizza. I used all my favorite pizza toppings like sausage and sweet peppers and adapted them to a frittata like crust. The result was delicious and I like that it was low carb too. I’m always making those low carb recipes. 🙂
The beauty of this recipe is that you can put anything you want as a topping. Bacon of course would be yummy but you can also do a traditional pepperoni pizza with red sauce and mozzarella. I tried that recently and it was great! Or you can do a arugula, red onion and goat cheese. Lots of combinations would work well.
This was very easy to make in my cast iron skillet. You must use an oven safe pan. I browned the sausage separately and microwaved the peppers too. So to make the egg “crust” you whisk a dozen eggs and cream and cook on the stove for about 5 minutes or until you see the sides set up. Then transfer to the oven to cook for another 15 minutes. When you pull it out it will be big and puffy. At least mine was. I actually had a deflate it a bit to get it flat so I could add the toppings. Set under the broiler to melt the cheese.
Low Carb Breakfast Pizza REcipe
- brown sausage separately and microwave peppers
- whisk eggs and cream and cook in an oven safe skillet for about 5 minutes so sides set up
- bake eggs for 15 minutes to make crust
- add toppings and set under broiler for 3 minutes until cheese is melted
Since the toppings were already cooked, I just layered the cheese and toppings and set it under the broiler until the cheese was nice and melted.
