Ideal for brunch or lunch or supper! It's diabetic friendly and gluten-free. It's not my recipe: I am saving it from a local S A Sunday Times supplement, Foodweekly (May 6, 2012). I tweaked the recipe a little. Prep and cooking times are a guess. I'd serve this with a cool, fresh green salad with a vinaigrette dressing, and maybe ciabatta ... (I added approx. American measurements where necessary).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat your oven grill element.
  2. Whisk the eggs with the herbs, water, salt and pepper. Do not over-mix.
  3. Heat the butter and oil in a large nonstick pan, pour in the egg mixture, and cook until just set on the bottom. (Watch your hob heat).
  4. Place the pan under the heated grill element, only until the eggs are lightly set on top. Remove the pan from the oven.
  5. Spread with the tomato sauce, and sprinkle with the fried bacon, olives, mushrooms, cheddar and mozzarella.
  6. Grill until the cheese melts. Cut into 6 wedges to serve.
  7. PS: It might be a better idea to lightly fry the mushrooms with the bacon, instead of using them raw, as the recipe says. And please add seasonings to your taste. I haven't tried this recipe yet, but it looks like a very practical solution for a light, meat-free meal.

This is a great and flavorful dish! I made half of the recipe in a 10-inch skillet. I took your suggestion of sauteing the mushrooms instead of using them raw; I used precooked bacon and just sauteed it in with the mushrooms. The bacon/mushroom/olive topping was great and I'm sure you could use any of your favorite pizza toppings on this. The seasoned omelet made a great "pizza crust" - served with a salad and I had a great dinner was on the table in 20 minutes flat - can't beat that! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

I reduced the recipe to two servings and added some green peppers which I microwaved a bit with the mushrooms and then drained the liquid off. This is a good recipe for low carbers and you can change it up with your favourite pizza toppings. Made for the Cook-a-thon in memory of Zurie's dear husband. You are in my thoughts!

Loved it! The recipe was scaled back to 2 servings and made a delicious low carb dinner for the 2 of us. I did use your suggestion and sautéed the mushrooms. A couple of strips of bacon were cooked until crisp and crumbled over the pizza. I can see myself making this recipe again. Zurie, you are in my thoughts.
