Pizza is the most adored after meal. When I first went gluten-free I had to find ways to recreate my favourites. I was also aiming to get more whole foods into my diet and kick the processed goods to the curb. Believe it or not, eggs answered a lot of my problems. I often used them as wraps and as you can guess pizza crusts.
It was once I came up with the egg pizza that I knew the gluten-free life was a livable one. This is a meal that is fully nutritious and complete. The crust is grain-free and high in protein and healthy fats. I even included some flax in the mix for some extra fibre that we all love.
This breakfast idea is a dream. It works wonders when we have fallen back into that breakfast rut. The one where we recycle the same couple of meals each and every day. Breakfast should never be boring and it should never lack flavour or full out fuel needed for the day that lies ahead.
And guys, let's talk about the kids for a second. Pizza for breakfast....um yeah, best parent of the year award. Step it up a notch and get them involved. Invite them to choose their own toppings and create their own individual pizzas. I love to offer a sprinkle garnish bar. Hemp hearts, chia seeds, broccoli sprinkles, and chopped fresh herbs are all amazing garnish ideas. Should your kiddos not be the type to choose any vegetables for their toppings, finely chop some up and incorporate them into the egg crust. They will never know and I promise I won’t tell.
Individual Egg Crust Pizza
- 2 eggs
- 1 Tbsp. milk/milk alternative
- 1 Tsp. ground flax
- 1 Tsp. oregano
- Pinch of black pepper & sea salt
- 1 cup of assorted chopped vegetables
- 2 Tbsp. pizza sauce (or tomato sauce with a pinch of garlic powder)
- 2 Tsp. cheese/alternative
- ½-1 Tbsp. garnish sprinkles (hemp hearts, chia seeds, broccoli sprinkles, fresh herbs, etc.).
- In a small bowl, whisk together the egg crust ingredients.
- Pour the egg batter into a small lightly greased pan and cook for approximately 4 minutes over medium heat. Flip the crust over with a large spatula and turn the heat down to low.
- Spread the tomato sauce evenly on top of the cooked side up crust. Place all other desired toppings and cover with a lid. Let cook and warm through for another few minutes.
- Remove from pan and let cool before slicing.
