I wanted to share a great recipe I recently tried - an omelette used as a base for a pizza!
It's really a very filling dish indeed, tastes amazing, and is very low on points!
- Crack four eggs into a bowl and whisk.
- Add 2 teaspoons of basil to the mixture (optional)
- Add a dash of soy sauce (optional)
- Heat frying pan on a hob on a medium heat. Coat pan with 1 cal spray - I use the garlic one for flavour, but any will do)
- Cook the mushrooms for a few minutes. Add salt and pepper to the mushrooms to add flavour.
- Pour all of the egg mixture into the frying pan. Shake the pan to distribute mushrooms evenly.
- Quickly add pepperoni, and try to submerge in the egg mixture as best as you can.
- Add a dash (tablespoon) of water to the pan (at the edge of the omelette), and put a lid on the frying pan - the water will evaporate, and this will help the top of the omelette cook by poaching the top with steam (because steam cooks faster than air).
- Cook for a few minutes, until the egg is mostly solid.
- To thoroughly cook the top, the omelette needs to be flipped - use whatever method you're comfortable with to flip the omelette in one piece! *
- Allow about 30 seconds cooking on this side, then flip back again.
- Now, sprinkle a handful of grated cheese, and a final seasoning with salt/pepper. Replace the lid, and cook for a few seconds to allow the cheese to melt.
Obviously you can alter the topping to suit whatever your favourite pizza is - this is a great way to have a low calorie version of your favourite pizza!
* I like to slide the whole omelette out of the frying pan onto the lid (in a similar manner to how it might be served on a plate) - I can then put the frying pan upside down over the lid which has the omelette on it, and then flip the pan and lid the right way up again. Once the right way up, the omelette falls from the lid into the frying pan, with no risk of mess!
