Anyone else feel like it took two weeks for Friday to finally get here? It’s just been one of those weeks for me (probably because I was working late AND have been battling this sinus funk that seems to be going around)…needless to say, I could use a little lighthearted humor to start my weekend off right!
That last one killed me!
Hope you guys enjoyed those…now how about that breakfast pizza, huh?
For the last few weeks, thanks to the drop in the temperatures around here (really Mother Nature…make up your friggin mind already), I have practically LIVED off of oatmeal. Not that that is a problem, but this week, having a bit more time for breakfast, I decided to change things up a bit.
Who around here likes omelets?
Ok, now who likes actually MAKING omelets?
You know, you crack the eggs, let them spread and coat the skillet, fill them with delicious goodies, pause to admire how beautiful the colors are, and then slap yourself on the forehead after you “try” to flip it and are left with some sort of egg-tastrophe that nowhere near resembles the picture you had in your head…
Plus there’s the time, the precision…omg, who has that kind of time?!
My solution: Don’t flip!
AND…while your at it…why not get really wild and turn it into a pizza!
Yeah, I know…I’m brilliant 😉
Egg White Breakfast “Pizza”

- 1/8 cup bell pepper, diced
- 1 handful fresh spinach

I was a little curious about the stats so I plugged it into a calorie counting website and was pretty impressed with what came out:
33 grams of protein?! Heck yeah!
Now the recipe/nutritional facts is for the original version that I first started with. Since then, I’ve made it two other times (and can see it appearing more in future breakfasts) and changed up the veggie “filling” and toppings…
Really guys, the sky’s the limit with this!
You don’t have to keep it traditional…
Switch out the greens…I used Swiss chard in this one…add some Mexican seasonings and top it with some salsa and cilantro for a little “Latin flair”…
Or why not use the oil from a jar of sun-dried tomatoes instead of olive oil, top with tomatoes, olives, and sprouts (just because you saw them in the fridge) and go Greek…would have been even better had I had a little feta cheese to go on top.
Hold the presses!
This just happened for lunch:
Can I interest anyone in a slice of dessert “pizza”??
Close your eyes…well, after you read this next part….and think how amazing a bite of creamy melty peanut butter, spicy cinnamon, warm banana slices and toasted coconut tastes…
Now go make this!

What has been your “can’t get enough of” breakfast lately?
Any big plans for the weekend?
BB is finally back from being out of town and we both have this Monday off for the holiday so I’m looking forward to spending some quality time with him…plus, I just found out yesterday that there’s a new Greek restaurant in town and I’m dying to try it out!
Those look amazing. I always try to wrap it up or make a quesadilla and end up with a mess. I like your way much better. Thanks for the inspiration : )
Yes, those look and sound delicious! I love how you made the simple tortilla and eggs into a pizza style. 🙂 I dunno if it’s the sprouts, but the Greek one I am drooling over.
The dessert one reminds me of the “pizza” my Hubs Eric cooked up for us one drunk night. 😉 so yum. But yours just seems to take it the extra mile. Woot.
Hmm, “pizza” and drunk night…I’m picturing gummy bears and cheetos! Lol!!!
yeeeeeee-ros! i have a three day weekend, too! but i have to have a sleep latency study (nap study) because they think i have narcolepsy (sp?) … laaame! have a good weekend with BB!
Oh wow! So…if they diagnose you as having it, does that give you an excuse to have required naptimes during the middle of the day…like a doctor’s note?? 😉 Lol
I am so bored with food lately. I need more time to cook. Your pizzas look delicious! We are heading to a museum in Saturday and rearranging the office Sunday. Good times! Oh and we’re going to The Marrietta Diner tomorrow. I think you’ve been there before! Have a great one Heather!
Ahhhhh! YESSSSS, I LOVE the Marietta Diner! What did you end up getting?
The peanut butter pizza sounds AMAAAAAAZING!!!
Hahaha I always end up ruining my omelet whenever I try to fold it over too! I think it’s because I try to stuff it with too many ingredients. 😛
I love this egg pizza idea though – especially the dessert one!
I can’t get enough of oatmeal cooked with egg whites lately. I never tried it until a few months ago, and now I’m hooked!
Oh yeah, that is ALWAYS the reason for me…I’m a notorious over stuffer! Omelets, burritos, wraps…you name it!
It’s been a while since I’ve had egg white oats…I need to make a bowl soon! Love how they plump up!
It looks delish! When you talked about the omelets, it reminded me of what Momma called omelets…make scrambled eggs, but add whatever you want to the mix…cheese, ham, veggies, etc. Yum!!
Those pizzas look waaaay too yummy. I would make them in a flash, but my annoying lactose intolerance is flaring up. But maybe with nutritional yeast :D….
Thanks for the great idea. The photos are beautiful as always.
Oh yeah! Nutritional yeast and eggs are the best! I’ve never tried it before, but you could use Tofutti cream cheese instead of regular…I’m sure it would taste similar.
This is a brilliant idea! I make ques-egg-dillas a lot with my tortillas but never thought to do pizza. And definitely never thought to do fruity-dessert pizza! Mmmm…
LOL! Cracking up over the this is how I FEEL when I dance…but this is how I LOOK when dancing – me too!
Your recipes are making me drool. YUM!
I had a girl-shopping day with my daughter yesterday. She’s five years old and it’s fun that she’s getting to be an age where we can run errands all day and do girly stuff.
Today is church and organizing my disaster of a house! Hope you’ve had a nice weekend.
Aww, I used to LOVE mother-daughter shopping days (well actually, I still do…whenever our busy schedules line up and we find the time)! I need to organize my office like yesterday…wanna come help?? 😉
WOAH. How did you make those pizza look so AMAZING?! I’m sure they taste great too, haha.
I’ve been craving greek food for the past few days. I need to get some gyro in me!

AWESOME pizza recipes!!
Thank you Seema! You should give it a try…super tasty and VERY filling! 🙂
Made this sans tortilla asian style and I have to say, yummo! If you were wondering I used red peppers, snap pea/broc slaw/broccoli mixture, spinach, zucchini and then i added trader joes seafood medley (calamari, shrimp and scallops) with seasame oil, braggs liquid aminos, seasame seeds, “thai garden” seasoning and this korean sweet and spicy sauce. man that was a lot haha.
Holy mother of all breakfast pizzas! You have me drooling all over myself! Wow, I bet that was AMAZING! And that thai garden seasoning sounds intriguing! Do you know what all is in it?
