Paleo Deep Dish Breakfast Pizza [Recipe]

Breakfast is easily the hardest meal to plan for.

There are typically two scenarios that play out when it comes to your first meal of the day:

You roll out of bed, rub the crust out of your eyes, after hitting the snooze three times leaving you with just enough time to grab a bagel, spread some jam on it and run out the door.


You end up making a few variations of oatmeal, eggs or a smoothie. Am I right? I know I’m right because this is where I usually fall.

The second reason breakfast or your first meal of the day tends to be toughest is we end up missing key nutrients. You might eat some eggs [protein] but miss some good carbohydrates. A smoothie or juice is a great option [you can make it the night before] but you miss the fat, protein or fullness factor which leads you to grabbing something like a muffin an hour later.

Enter the Paleo Deep Dish Breakfast Pizza!

Okay obviously this isn’t an actual pizza, more like a paleo frittata or ultimate breakfast solution.

It takes away the boredom of oatmeal and replaces it with tons of veggies, protein, fat and even carbs, what? And for those of us who workout first thing in the morning this works as a great post workout meal as well.

You can add or subtract anything you like from the ingredient list – make it your own, but here is the general recipe:

1 – add ground protein of your choice [I used Turkey] season to taste cook until done and set a side
2 – saute your veggies [onion, zucchini, mushrooms, kale, peppers, broccoli, spinach, etc] cook for 5 minutes stirring occasionally
3 – add baked and cubed sweet potato [optional of course]
4 – While veggies are cooking, crack 10 eggs into a bowl and whisk until uniform.
5 – add ground protein, olives and tomatoes.
*If you have a skillet that can be placed in the oven, great, if not you will have to transfer the mixture into a cake pan [as I did]
6 – add eggs
7 – Cook in the oven until eggs are set [20 mins at 375]
8 – When finished, place a piece of parchment paper over the top, place an inverted sheet pan on top of that, and invert the skillet and pan together. Place on a counter and remove the skillet from the top
9 – Slice and eat immediately [with a slice of avocado], or allow to cool completely,then slice, portion, wrap and freeze/refrigerate. Makes 8 wedges.Now all you have to do is pull one out of the freezer in the morning and warm it up, BOOM well balanced, nutritious start to your day!
