      Very easy, Very Good. I made two of these for brunch. I had leftover veggies off the grill, yellow squash, zucchini, red pepper and mushrooms, so I cut up 1 1/2 cups of those. I used the leftover steak for one and made the other with browned pork sausage. I sprinkled a little mozzerella on top. They were so savory and delicious. I told the kids it was omelet pizza and they gobbled it up. I think this is a great base recipe and will be trying it often with different veggies and meats.
