Grilled Western Omelet Pizza

Yes, I have a new obsession. Eggs on pizza. I love the way they look, except I do find it a bit disconcerting that they stare at me before I cut up the pizza to eat! 

Seriously, what could be better? And this particular combination reminded me of the times when I was a kid when we would have "breakfast for dinner." This usually happened when my mom forgot to take out meat from the freezer, or it was too warm to fire up the oven. I loved those nights, as it was an excuse to have pancakes, or eggs and bacon for dinner. 

This pizza could not have been simpler. And, I have been experimenting with a "no-rise" pizza dough that is quick and easy to make. This is thin-crust, which I prefer, because it doesn't fill me up as fast, and I can eat more pizza!

Grilled Western Omelet Pizza
Pizza Crust Dough(makes enough for 2 crusts):
1/2 teaspoon active rise yeast
3/4 cup water
2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup mixed multi grains (I purchased this mix from King Arthur flour, but you can add whatever you like, or skip this part)
1/4 teaspoon salt
Flour for kneading dough
Warm water in microwave until just past room temperature (about 45 seconds). Stir in yeast and let sit for 5 minutes. In a large bowl, mix together flour, grains and salt. After yeast has proofed, make a "well" in the middle of the flour mixture and add the water. Mix together with your hands, until a ball forms. Place on floured surface and knead for 5 minutes until smooth. Separate into 2 pieces. Roll out on parchment paper, or foil if you are grilling. I usually spray my foil with non-stick spray if I am grilling the pizza.

For the topping
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper
3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup yellow onion, chopped finely
1/2 cup yellow pepper, chopped finely
2 whole eggs
Heat oven or grill to highest heat possible. Spread olive oil over crust, and liberally salt and pepper. Spread cheese over the top, then scatter peppers and onions over the cheese. Place pizza on the grill, or in the oven,  then gently place eggs on top. Bake just until eggs are set, and remove from oven or grill. Salt and pepper eggs, and serve.


  1. Sounds great. Wonder if amercan cheese would work? Maybe on the dough and with eggs scrambled on top. I will try and let u know.

  2. It works ! If put on bottom then I covered the cheese with thinly sliced tomato , raw scrambled eggs and peppers and onions , topped with freshly grated parmesan. It came out awesome!

  3. Good to know ! We love the soft, whole eggs, and the way they spread across the pizza when it is cut. But, this is a good alternative for someone who doesn't like the soft eggs. Thanks !
