Egg “Pizzas” (aka Pizza Eggs)

Must Try

Lolita Carrico
A certified nutritionist and self-taught chef with a love for entertaining and experimenting with food, Lolita Carrico created Ketology after struggling for years with her own hormonal changes and weight gain. After having two children, she found that managing her weight and moods became more and more of a struggle. After researching the ketogenic diet thoroughly and understanding the science and nutritional aspects, she began her keto journey in 2018. Within three months, she shed 25 pounds and her mood improved, focus sharpened and her energy was through the roof. Three years later, she has maintained a 55-pound weight loss and has learned to intuitively follow a balanced keto lifestyle without sacrificing a thing!

There are many low-carb pizza crust alternatives – from cheese-based “fathead” dough to cauliflower crusts and more. But did you ever think about using a fried egg as a crust alternative? While you can’t pick up a slice and bite down on this like other alternative pizza bases, these egg-based “pizzas” are a fun spin and are delicious for breakfast or even lunch!

We’ve gone with a traditional pepperoni “pizza” here and added some goat (or feta) cheese for some extra flavor, but you can experiment with toppings and cheeses to make your favorite! I have been on a pizza eggs kick for a few weeks now – I make them almost daily and play with toppings…my current favorite is a Mexican version with jalapeno, cheddar, salsa and sour cream. And of course, eggs are a ketology superfood – look for pasture raised eggs ideally for the best possible nutritional profile and flavor. Either way, whatever eggs you use and whatever toppings you use, this keto breakfast recipe is so delicious!

Note: with the pizza sauce, you want to make sure you get one with no added sugar. Similar to marinara sauce, brands will often sneak in sugar to their sauces – so check the labels. I like the Rao’s pizza sauce or just use regular no-sugar added marinara.
