Brunch/ Gluten Free/ Low Carb

Pizza Frittata

This pizza frittata recipe combines my love of pizza and frittata.  Two of my favourite dishes together!  Perfect for low carb and gluten free diets!

This is a frittata that can be made with any pizza toppings that you prefer.  Here, I just simply used onions and peppers but feel free to throw in meat, mushrooms and other veggies.   It’s a pizza, it’s a frittata, it’s a yummy dish!

Pizza frittata is a great recipe for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner.  Anytime is frittata time and any time is pizza time too!  It’s a recipe that transcends time and defers meal planning.   Okay, that’s getting a bit carried away but it’s a simple recipe to make.  

If you choose different fillings, you will need to adjust the carb count.  Perhaps replace the onion with spring onions and the olives with some form of meat.   I usually like jalapeno peppers on mine, but since I was sharing this with the Chief Taster I used olives instead.  

By the way, the photo below is deliberate.   As I was moving the plates around I saw the PacMan shape and couldn’t resist.  I chuckled to myself as the cats just looked on and tutted.   I need to get out this week and talk to a human.

    I’m a little confused by the instructions… Am I cooking this on the stovetop, and then transferring to the oven? If so, what temperature should the oven be? Looks fantastic, by the way. Your site has been really fun to browse!

    Made this wonderful one tonight and it really hit my “pizza” craving. In fact, this is the second frittata I’ve made this week and I’m hooked on these for their versitility and because I love eggs. The arttichoke/lemon was delish, hot or cold. Just a great one dish meal that couldn’t be easier to prepare yet has a certain flair and perfect for the smaller family of one or two. I’ve modified for 6 eggs which works well and conserves eggs for more recipes!! I’m going to make every frittata you posted and then experiment on my own.

    I also want to get myself a donut pan to make the bagels and DONUTS!!

    God bless you for sharing all your wonderful recipes. I have you on FB now so I never miss a new post.
