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 roasted chicken, but they are but a small sample of the endless possibilities.

Beer is the perfect accompaniment to virtually any type of pizza

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.

Cook Time

15 min

25 min

40 min

One pizza - two servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons chopped Italian tomatoes, canned in tomato juice
  • Olive oil
  • 2 large garlic cloves, 1 peeled and grated for sauce; 1 peeled and crushed for bruschetta
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 thin slices zucchini/courgette
  • 4 thin slices eggplant/aubergine
  • 1 tablespoon dried porcini mushrooms
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3 ounces cooked chicken, roughly shredded
  • 3 ounces cheddar cheese, coarsely grated
  • 3 or 4 fresh basil leaves, rolled and thinly sliced
  • 4 slices ciabatta bread

Beer recommendation: Peroni

Instructions

  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

Why You Should Use Cheddar Cheese

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.

A simple Spanish tortilla with potatoes and onion is topped with chorizo, chicken and cheese

Cook Time

Prep time: 45 min

Cook time: 45 min

Ready in: 1 hour 30 min

Yields: One pizza - one serving

Ingredients

  • 1 small baking potato, peeled and diced to 3/4"
  • 1/2 small white onion, peeled and moderately thinly sliced
  • Olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 large eggs, beaten in a bowl just enough to combine
  • 7 (2") diameter, thin slices of Spanish chorizo
  • 3 ounces cooked and cooled chicken, shredded
  • 3 ounces cheddar cheese, coarsely grated
  • Thinly sliced basil leaves to garnish

Beer recommendation: San Miguel

Instructions

  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 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 that 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 while shopping, 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 tablespoon 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"
  • 1/2 each of red, yellow and green bell pepper, de-seeded and roughly chopped
  • 3 ounces cooked chicken, roughly shredded
  • 3 ounces cheddar cheese, grated
  • 4 tablespoons soured cream
  • 2 handfuls of spicy tortilla chips

Beer recommendation: Corona

Instructions

  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 into 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 into two small ramekins. Plate with the pizza omelette halves and add the tortilla chips.

Thanks, rosika. Hope it's something you enjoy.

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 :)

Gordon Hamilton (author) from Wishaw, Lanarkshire, United Kingdom on May 31, 2013:

Thanks for reading and commenting, phdast.

Gordon Hamilton (author) from Wishaw, Lanarkshire, United Kingdom on May 31, 2013:

Hi, Marsha and thanks for visiting and commenting. I hope you do experiment and very much enjoy what you come up with - the concept absolutely does not have to include chicken.

Gordon Hamilton (author) from Wishaw, Lanarkshire, United Kingdom on May 31, 2013:

Thanks, Sam, Melonuie and Margaret. Hope you enjoy! :)

rosika on May 31, 2013:

Tom Schumacher from Huntington Beach, CA on May 30, 2013:

Your "Med Chicken Pizza Omelette Recipe" looks delicious! I'm looking forward to trying it. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. Although I love coffee, do you have any other recommendations?

Theresa Ast from Atlanta, Georgia on May 30, 2013:

Absolutely terrific hub. Great recipes and very helpful directions and pictures. Thank you. :)

Marsha Musselman from Michigan, USA on May 30, 2013:

The recipes and pictures make these dishes look scrumptious. I may have to try a variation or two myself. I don't know that I'd want to use chicken, but the rest looks like it would be delicious.

mbrownauthor on May 30, 2013:

Sounds awesome!

MelonieGilchrist on May 30, 2013:

I so need to break out the frying pan and make some of these. Great suggestions.

Gordon Hamilton (author) from Wishaw, Lanarkshire, United Kingdom on May 30, 2013:

Hi, Susan and thank you! Appreciate it - and sorry for making you eat extra :)

Gordon Hamilton (author) from Wishaw, Lanarkshire, United Kingdom on May 30, 2013:

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.

Gordon Hamilton (author) from Wishaw, Lanarkshire, United Kingdom on May 30, 2013:

Thank you Carreermommy, Purpose Embraced and rose -the planner. Appreciate the comments.

SAM ELDER from Home on May 30, 2013:

Looks tasty.

Gordon Hamilton (author) from Wishaw, Lanarkshire, United Kingdom on May 30, 2013:

Thanks, KoraleeP and Ceres Schwarz. These recipes are actually very simple and are in most instances also farily quick to make.

Susan Zutautas from Ontario, Canada on May 30, 2013:

Gordon I read your hub first thing this morning and had to go and get something to eat after reading it as it made me so darn hungry. Wanted to stop back in and say Congrats on a well deserved HOTD!

Gordon Hamilton (author) from Wishaw, Lanarkshire, United Kingdom on May 30, 2013:

Thank you, yesmy robin and pinto2011. Pinto, glad to help and hope your guests enjoy/enjoyed whatever you came up with.

Gordon Hamilton (author) from Wishaw, Lanarkshire, United Kingdom on May 30, 2013:

Hi, SuzieHQ and thank you. I'm glad you like the ideas and yes - it definitely could be best of both worlds for many people. The pan issue is important, as plastic handles in particular can cause major problems.

Gordon Hamilton (author) from Wishaw, Lanarkshire, United Kingdom on May 30, 2013:

Thanks very much divacratus, Sneha Sunny and starbright. Appreciate your comments.

Kathryn from Windsor, Connecticut on May 30, 2013:

I was curious about this, but didn't expect it to be so elaborate! Well done, and congrats on winning HOTD.

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.

rose-the planner from Toronto, Ontario-Canada on May 30, 2013:

What an awesome recipe! Your images were great and helpful. Congrats on the HOTD! Take care. ( Voted up)

Looks really yum! Have to try this out. Congrats on being voted as hub of the day.

Gordon Hamilton (author) from Wishaw, Lanarkshire, United Kingdom on May 29, 2013:

Carly, I've got to admit, I very rarely eat breakfast. Usually only when I'm in B&B's or hotels on fishing trips. I know it is such an important meal, however, so I'm glad these ideas may help out your family. Thanks for your visit and comment.

Carly Sullens from St. Louis, Missouri on May 27, 2013:

My family eats pizza all the time, but do not always eat breakfast. Now I know how to get them to eat breakfast!

Gordon Hamilton (author) from Wishaw, Lanarkshire, United Kingdom on May 26, 2013:

Thank you, peachpurple. I am delighted this idea will save you money! Hopefully you come up with some great topping ideas to suit your own tastes.

peachy from Home Sweet Home on May 26, 2013:

thanks for sharing this great recipe. Chicken pizza, homemade with omelette - yummy and fill up hunger pang easily. I usually buy chicken pizza from pizza hut and fry my own omelette. Now, with your recipe, i could save some money. thanks.

Gordon Hamilton (author) from Wishaw, Lanarkshire, United Kingdom on May 18, 2013:

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! :)

Nell Rose from England on May 18, 2013:

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

Thanks, randomcreative. I actually first came across pizza omelettes a few years back and forgot all about the idea until recently. They definitely make a pleasant change to the norm.

Rose Clearfield from Milwaukee, Wisconsin on May 17, 2013:

Omelets are such an inspired base for pizzas! I never would have thought to do that, but these recipes all sound delicious.

Gordon Hamilton (author) from Wishaw, Lanarkshire, United Kingdom on May 17, 2013:

Thanks very much Vacation Trip. I hope you're tempted to give one of the ideas a try.

Susan from India on May 16, 2013:

Amazing recipe with great pics. All steps explained clearly. Rated 5 stars.
