What do you think of when you think of pizza? A base made from bread like dough, covered with tomato sauce and topped with any number of meat and/or vegetable toppings before delicious mozzarella cheese is melted over the top? While this perhaps describes pizzas as most people would think of them, the recipes on this page are for a very different type of pizza, where the base is essentially a Spanish style omelette. Tomato sauce is largely optional before the toppings are added, due to the moisture in the egg base.

Never heard of pizza omelette? Want to give it a try? The ideas below are all centred around ideas for using up leftover roast chicken but they are but a small sample of the endless possibilities.

Pizza and Beer

Whether it be conventional pizza or pizza omelette, what could provide a better accompaniment (for adults!) than beer? Wine can be great but there is something about beer that sees it go really well with pizza. Bearing this in mind, the pizza omelette recipes below will additionally recommend an excellent accompanying beer.

  1. Pour a little olive oil in to a small saucepan. Add the grated garlic and oregano and heat over a low heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, before adding the tomatoes, seasoning with salt and pepper and bringing to a gentle simmer for ten minutes.
  2. Put the dried porcini mushrooms in to a small bowl and pour in enough boiling water to completely cover. Leave for ten minutes to rehydrate before draining.
  3. Pour a tablespoon or so of olive oil in to a deep frying pan and gently heat. Season the eggplant (aubergine) and Zucchini (courgette) slices with salt and pepper and fry for a couple of minutes either side. Drain on a wire rack.
  4. Put your grill/broiler on to reach a high heat. Beat the eggs just enough to combine and pour in to the hot pan. Season with a little salt and pepper and cook over a medium heat for about five minutes or until you can see they are just about set. Place the pan under the hot grill until the eggs are fully set.
  5. Spread the still warm but not too hot tomato sauce over the omelette, leaving a half inch border all around. Lay on the vegetable slices, interspersed by the porcini mushrooms.
  6. Scatter the chicken over the vegetable layer and the cheese over the chicken. Put back under the heat until the cheese is melted and bubbling.
  7. Carefully slide the omelette on to a chopping board and start the ciabatta toasting until golden on both sides.
  8. Garnish the omelette with the shredded basil and cut it in half with a pizza cutter. Lay one half on each plate and pour your accompanying beers.
  9. Rub the hot toast with the crushed garlic clove and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and plate beside the pizza omelette halves.
Cheddar cheese works very well on pizza omelettes

Cheese - An Explanation

The recipes on this page all use cheddar cheese as a pizza topping. Experimentation was conducted with other cheeses - including pizza mozzarella - and it is consequently believed that cheddar works best with the egg rather than traditional base. This is, however, a personal opinion and you should experiment as you see fit, to suit your own tastes.

  1. The potato pieces should be placed in a pot of cold, salted water and brought to a simmer for about fifteen to twenty minutes until just softened and no more. Drain, let them steam for a few minutes, cover and leave for half an hour to cool.
  2. Bring about a tablespoon of olive oil up to a medium heat in your frying pan. Add the potatoes, sliced onion and smoked paprika. Season. Fry gently, stirring with a spatula, until the onions are just softened.
  3. Ensure the onion and potato are evenly spread around the pan before slowly and carefully pouring in the beaten eggs. Cook on a low to medium heat until the eggs are almost set and just a little liquid remains on top.
  4. Put the pan under your hot grill/broiler until the eggs are set.
  5. Place the chorizo slices at regular intervals on top of the egg and arrange the chicken around the slices. Scatter the cheese evenly over the top.
  6. Return the pan under the heat until the cheese is melted.
  7. Scatter the basil over the top and serve whole - with the beer - to one hungry person.

Tex Mex Chicken Pizza Omelette with Spicy Tortilla Chips Recipe

It will go without saying for some but you should be very careful about your choice of chillies for this recipe. Choosing chilli peppers which provide a sudden, unexpected blast of heat can cause you, a family member or an unsuspecting guest a very unwelcome surprise. If necessary, ask for advice in store but if you are in any doubt following your purchase, nick a little bit off the chopped chillies and taste before adding to the egg base.

Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min

Cook time: 10 min

Ready in: 20 min

Yields: One pizza - two servings

Ingredients

  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 tbsp roughly chopped coriander leaf/cilantro, a little reserved for garnish
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 small red chilli pepper, sliced to ¼"
  • 1 small green chilli pepper, sliced to ¼"
  • ½ each of red, yellow and green bell pepper, de-seeded and roughly chopped
  • 3oz cooked chicken, roughly shredded
  • 3oz cheddar cheese, grated
  • 4 tbsp soured cream
  • 2 handful of spicy tortilla chips

Beer recommendation: Corona

  1. Heat a tablespoon or so of olive oil in your frying pan.
  2. Add most of the coriander/cilantro to the beaten eggs and stir briefly to combine before pouring in to the frying pan. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Once the eggs are almost set, lay the slices of chilli pepper at even intervals on top. Put the pan under a hot broiler/grill until the eggs are fully set and the chilli slices are fixed in place. This tip ensures even distribution of the chillies through the pizza, rather than some bites being considerably hotter than others.
  4. Mix the chopped bell peppers with the chicken and scatter evenly over the top, followed by the cheese. Heat again until the cheese is melted.
  5. Carefully slide the pizza omelette on to a chopping board and garnish with the remaining coriander/cilantro. Cut in half and plate.
  6. Spoon the soured cream in to two small ramekins. Plate with the pizza omelette halves and add the tortilla chips.

      Hi, Tom. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Unfortunately, I don't as a rule eat breakfast, other than when I am travelling on coastal fishing trips. Then I tend to eat full breakfasts, with sausage, bacon, egg, mushrooms, tomatoes, baked beans and more - with plenty of coffee. Hope the idea helps :)

      Hi, Kathryn and thank you. Funnily enough, I hadn't thought of it as having pizza with omelette until I read your comment. I was coming from the pizza with beer angle. Now that you say it, I wouldn't normally associate beer with an omelette either - though I promise it works very well in this particular instance :) You have a good weekend too.

      I like the photos, the two unique recipes, and your suggestion to have beer with it. I have to admit I have never had beer with an omelette before, but I have also never had a pizza omelette, either.

      Thanks for sharing this with us, and have a fantastic weekend, Gordon. I look forward to trying this.

      Hi, Nell and thanks as always. Re the pans: the problem can be that so many frying pans nowadays have a perfectly good base and main section - but cheap plastic handles. Putting one of them under the grill (never mind in the oven!) can cause all sorts of disasters. Glad you have a compatible pan! :)

      What a great idea Gordon. I love omelettes, so this is just the one step further. I noticed you mentioned about the pan being able to take the heat. I always cook omelettes the easy way, on the top then under the grill, and its fine so far, fingers crossed, love it, and voted up and shared, nell
