Happy Thursday Y’all!
Today, if you don’t remember, is also known as G-baby Thursday in our house because we have the grandbaby today 😊 and Thursdays are also a day that is hard to cook for because Kylee is sooooooo picky now 🙁
I used to be able to get her to eat just about anything, but now the 3’s have kicked in and it is SO hard to feed her something other than scrambled eggs, mac and cheese, hot dogs, and PB&J’s.
I made a tuna casserole the other night and heated up leftovers for lunch. I thought I might get away with just giving her some of the noodles and sauce to see how it went.
Well, there was one bite……two bites……..gag!
Kylee – Don’t want it Nana
Me – It is just noodles boo.
Kylee – I want my noodles (aka the blue box)
Me – But these are noodles.
Kylee – Nana (as she puts her hand on my knee) your noodles are yucky.
I couldn’t help but laugh because her face was so serious!
I still refuse to give her the blue box, but she doesn’t mind my homemade mac and cheese, as long as there is no tuna involved!
Right now you are probably asking yourself what the heck this has to do with a Keto Breakfast Pizza.
Well, Kylee likes pizza, and with me just starting on the LCHF/Keto plan pizza is definitely off the menu. So that has spurred me on to find ways to fool my body that it is getting pizza without all of those pesky carbs.
Enter this delicious Breakfast Pizza.
I never even thought about Kylee liking it.
I usually make a cheese omelet with a bit if homemade salsa fresca on it and the salsa on top completely turns Kylee off so she doesn’t even ask for a bite. So she will have scrambled eggs with a bit of cheese.
The morning I made this she took one look and asked what it was. When I told her pizza she immediately wanted a bite 😮
I was more than happy to oblige!
I cut off a little “slice” for her and she happily munched away.
This breakfast pizza is super easy to make.
You just get your eggs into the pan, with a bit of butter, and once you see the edges beginning to firm up, like this 👆 you flip the omelet onto a plate (Put a plate over the pan and just turn it out onto the plate), and then slip it right back into the pan.
The toppings are 100% up to you. I opted for what we usually have on our pizza, which is mushrooms, onions, and sausage, which does require a bit of sauteeing before you make the pizza. But you could just stick to pepperoni and cheese if that is your thing.
Ham and pineapple? Go for it, unless you are keto, no pineapple for you.
Taco pizza? Heck ya! Taco meat, cheese, avocado, YUM!!
Of course, I had to add a bit of fresh grated Parmesan cheese, and a few red chile flakes, just like “normal” pizza 😃🍕
Oh and, because I like the pretty green on things, I gave it a little sprinkle of fresh chopped parsley.
If it looks pretty it tastes better right?
The whole we eat with our eyes first dealio.
So, the bottom line for us keto peeps? This taste bud pleasing breakfast clocks in at a little over 6 carbs, with almost 26 grams of protein!
Keto Breakfast Pizza
- 2 tablespoons Italian sausage, or 1 link of breakfast sausage casing removed
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 tablespoon red onion, chopped
- 2 large mushrooms, sliced
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 2 large eggs
- Kosher salt
- Fresh cracked black pepper
- 1 pinch dried basil
- 1 pinch dried oregano
- 1 tablespoon tomato sauce with basil
- 1/4 cup freshly shredded mozzarella cheese
- Fresh Parmesan cheese, grated
- Crushed red pepper flakes
- Fresh parsley, chopped
- Cook the sausage over medium-high heat until no pink remains, breaking it apart with a wooden spoon as it cooks.
- Meanwhile, dice veggies.
- Remove the sausage from the pan and reserve on a plate.
- Add a tablespoon of butter to the pan and saute the onions, mushrooms, and garlic until soft, about 3 minutes. Remove the veggies from the pan and save them with the sausage. Reduce the heat to low and wipe out the pan.
- Beat eggs together, and add salt, pepper, basil, and oregano.
- Add the remaining tablespoon of butter to the pan. When the butter has melted, add the eggs to the pan. Swirl the pan to make sure the eggs are in an even layer.
- Cook until firm on the bottom (you can see the edges firming up).
- Remove the pan from the heat, place a plate on top of the pan, and flip the egg layer onto the plate. Carefully slide the eggs back into the pan.
Turn off the heat. The bottom of the “pizza” will continue to cook while you add the toppings.Spread the tomato sauce on top of the eggs, shredded cheese, cooked sausage, mushrooms, onions, and garlic. Cover pan with a lid to help the cheese melt
- Carefully slide the pizza onto your plate.
