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!
