DeAnna Lee's Fight the Fluff Egg Crust Pizza

January 3, 2018

2018 is here, and so is my New Year's resolution to drop the holiday weight. My family and I do this every year. We gently introduce healthy foods back into our food vocabulary. That means ditching things like Totino's Pizzas and hot dogs. We love eating things like that because, well... they are cheap, easy to make, and satisfy that comfort food craving. 

In years past, I've been really strict with how I lost weight at the beginning of the year. This would eventually make me hangry and not the happiest wife or co-worker. Those headaches you get from not eating carbs are vicious. 

So this year, we are going easier on ourselves as we are in for the long haul. Make better choices every single day all year long. That is the goal. I hope by reading this you are inspired to make a healthy choice today. 

This recipe hits on all cylinders! It's pizza!!! YES PIZZA! And who doesn't love pizza! But there's no carbs, and everything in it is so good for you! Aside from the eggs and olive oil, you can choose any ingredient that's your favorite to add. Think of making your favorite toppings for your favorite pizza and have fun! 

 

 

EGG CRUST PIZZA 

4 eggs

1 tbs. olive oil 

1/4 cup of mozzarella cheese

1/4 cup of sliced mushrooms

1/4 cup of diced green peppers

1/4 diced ham

1 minced garlic clove

1 tbsp. minced fresh parsley

Sat and pepper to taste 

 

 

Instructions:

Preheat broiler in oven or small toaster oven.  Break eggs into a small bowl and beat well. Slice mushrooms, green peppers, and ham. 

Add olive oil to the omelet pan and heat over medium heat until the pan is starting to get hot, about 1 minute.  Saute garlic for 1 minute then add the eggs. Season with salt and pepper. Cook until eggs are starting to set on the bottom, about 2 minutes.

Sprinkle on half each of the mushrooms, green peppers, ham, and mozzarella, followed by a second layer with half of each.  (Be sure there is plenty of cheese on the top layer.)  Cover the pan and cook until the eggs are mostly set and cheese is starting to melt, about 3-4 minutes. 

Put pan under the broil and cook until the cheese is nicely melted and the top is starting to brown,  about 2-3 minutes with oven broiler or 4-5 minutes in a small toaster oven broiler.  Serve hot.
