Pizza for Breakfast
Struggle to fit in enough vegetables for the day? You’ve gotta try this egg pizza if you like eggs and pizza. Try it for breakfast. Eat it with a fork, or hold it like a pizza.
Do you like eggs for breakfast? I like eggs any time of the day. Fried, scrambled, boiled, poached, baked, omelets, quiches – I like them all. But have you ever thought about making a stuffed veggie egg pizza? It never crossed my mind until I was cooking an omelet one day, and it looked like a stuffed pizza.

Stuff It Like a Pizza
When I made this egg pizza, it was intended to be an omelet. But what happened surprised me. I cooked it until a little firm on the bottom (so that it wasn’t burned yet firm enough to fold without falling apart). As I folded over one half on top of the other in a half-moon shape, I decided to also fold it over again. Therefore, it looked like a stuffed pizza.
You can see in the photos that the egg dish was cooked in a cast iron skillet – my favorite pan! I cook everything in it and bake in it, too. If you’re new to cast-iron cooking, purchase a subscription to the Southern Cast Iron magazine. If you’d like to check it out first, buy one at Barnes & Noble. This magazine is filled with all kinds of information about how to care for your iron pan in addition to tons of yummy recipes. I enjoy browsing through mine over and over. Both the print magazine and Kindle version can be ordered from Amazon.
Imagine the possibilities with this omelet/stuffed pizza entree. Add any kind of vegetables you wish. For instance, a veggie pizza could include black olives, onions, red and green bell pepper, and tomatoes. Or make it with carrots and greens.
Change it to a meat egg pizza, and use sausage, pepperoni, and ground beef with lots of cheese. Get the picture?
Like a pizza, you can make this stuffed omelet into any flavor you prefer. Meat, cheese, veggie – mix it all in and have a supreme!
Stuffed Egg Pizza Grocery List
The next time you go to the supermarket, grab a sheet from your fridge magnetic grocery list pad.
Write down all the ingredients you can think of that you and your family like on pizzas. Then try the variations with eggs instead. The calories and carbohydrates will be much less than regular pizza. Here’s a list of egg pizza toppings to get you started:
- Grated cheese
- Parmesan cheese
- Ground beef
- Black olives
- Bell Peppers
Now, you finish the list and have fun creating your own stuffed egg pizzas.
Here is the recipe for the stuffed veggie omelet pizza that I made:
- 1 heaping teaspoon coconut oil
- 1 small carrot
- 1/3 medium onion
- 10-12 mustard green leaves
- 3 large eggs
- 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, grated
- Wash the carrot, scrape any dirt off of it.
- Wash the mustard green leaves and set aside on a plate.
- Cut the carrot into thin slices.
- Chop a third of a medium-size onion into the size of chunks you prefer.
- Cut the stems off of the mustard green leaves.
- Place the mustard green leaves on top of each other, and cut into four stacks.
- Put the coconut oil in a cast iron skillet, and turn the burner to high.
- When it's hot and the coconut oil has melted, add the vegetables.
- Cook for about two minutes on high, stirring the vegetables.
- Turn the burner on low.
- Beat the eggs and cream, then pour the mixture into the cast iron pan with the veggies.
- Sprinkle the grated cheese on top evenly.
- As soon as the egg firms up on the bottom (enough to fold over without it running), fold it over to make a half moon shape.
- Let it set for no more than 30 seconds to a minute, then fold it over again.
- Take your spatula and gently hold it up against the sides of the egg for a few seconds if the egg and cheese try to seep out.
- Flip the stuffed egg pizza over and gently press on top of it with the spatula, and turn the burner off.
- Serve the veggie egg pizza by itself or with toast.
Since it looked like a pizza, of course, I had to hold it like one – just to see if it would fall apart. It didn’t. I ate the first part of it with a fork then held it in my hands and ate the rest of it.
Make the Stuffed Veggie Egg Pizza for your little children or grandchildren. I can’t wait to serve these stuffed pizzas when my grand-littles come to visit us next month!
Enjoy these fun breakfast pizzas, and come back to let me know what kind you made – veggie, meat, or supreme.
