Enjoy Pizza For Breakfast With This Healthy And Delicious Frittata Recipe

ileana Ileana Paules-Bronet

Like most people, I love pizza. I’ll eat it at any time of day — lunch, dinner, afternoon snack, late-night snack, even breakfast.

Yes, breakfast. Some people might judge me, but I like pizza so much that I will eat it for breakfast any day of the week.

But here’s the thing — I know eating pizza for every meal isn’t exactly the healthiest. That’s why it’s great that pizza and its flavors can be added to other foods, like pizza bagels or cauliflower crusts.

This recipe might be my new favorite, though. It’s a perfect way to eat pizza for breakfast or brunch (without getting weird looks from people!).

This pizza frittata takes all the best elements from pizza — sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms, and green peppers — and puts them into an egg-based mixture.

Not only is this pizza frittata incredibly tasty, it’s also healthier for you than a regular slice of pizza. The egg gives you a good serving of protein, while the add-ins make it delicious.

And if these toppings aren’t your favorite, you can mix it up for a different flavor!
