Recipe #5: Pizza Omelet

When cooking, I really like to mix up genres. I think it would be so fun to make a list of different burgers to make, for example, and see how many different twists I could put on them—nacho burger, Chinese burger, Italian burger, etc. This idea came when I wanted to put a twist on the common breakfast omelet. I was partially inspired by a pizza-flavored pastel I had in Brazil that was really good.

Pizza Omelet
"É la prima colazione, il modo italiano!"

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp. onion, diced
  • 2 Tbsp. green pepper, diced
  • ⅓ beef hot dog, sliced (or Italian sausage, if you can actually buy that)
  • 3 slices turkey pepperoni, ripped in half
  • A few sliced olives if you want
  • 1 dash Italian seasoning, and/or pizza seasoning, and/or oregano
  • ~2 Tbsp. marinara or spaghetti sauce
  • Grated mozzarella or parmesan cheese
  1. Grease the pan in oil (oo, you could even use actual olive oil to keep with the Italian motif) and sauté the onions and green peppers until sautéed.
  2. Beat the eggs and pour them over the vegetables. Use a spatula to pull the cooked egg sections toward the center, rolling the pan to continue distributing the uncooked egg.
  3. When the eggs are stablilized, sprinkle white cheese over the omelet and let it melt a bit. Then pour the marinara sauce over it all. Dust with your favorite Italian spices.
  4. Flip one edge of the omelet to the other, making a fold. Some sauce might squirt out, but oh well. Remove from heat.
  5. Serve with or on top of buttered toast sprinkled with garlic powder. Feel free to garnish with red pepper flakes, powdered parmesan cheese, and maybe like a sprig of parsley or something. 
YIELD: 1 omelet.

Washes down well with...  A nice, medium-bodied dry white grape juice, or a sweet, full-bodied red grape juice. Or milk.
