Take a fun twist on an omelette recipe by making this cheesy pizza omelette! There’s diced green pepper, pizza sauce and plenty of melty mozzarella cheese! This easy omelette recipe is so good for a quick breakfast or even for lunch with a simple side salad.
Hearty breakfasts are one of my favourite things, especially on Saturday mornings when I have plenty of time to sit back with multiple cups of coffee in my pyjamas.
Growing up, pizza omelette is something my dad would make for my brother and me on Saturday or Sunday for breakfast.
Guess it was his sneaky little way of getting us to eat something hearty.
I mean, throw the word “pizza” at anything and right away it makes it more appealing, am I right?
I do enjoy pizza and pizza flavoured foods. Remember way back when I shared a pizza grilled cheese sandwich? Talk about good!
This omelette is made simply, with eggs (of course) and a little green pepper, pizza sauce and cheese.
And if you want to make things ultra substantial, especially on a lazy ease-into-the-morning brunch, serve with some skillet potatoes!

How To Make This Omelette
Full details on how to make this pizza omelette are in the recipe card below, but here are the basics:
- In a non-stick frying pan, cook some green pepper in a little olive oil to soften, then remove from the pan.
- In a bowl, beat eggs with a little milk, salt and pepper.
- Melt butter in the pan. Once melted, pour in the whisked egg mixture. Gently swirl the eggs around the pan and as they set, loosen the edges with a spatula.
- Once the eggs are almost cooked (but not quite), add shredded mozzarella to one half of the egg mixture.
- Then pour over pizza sauce, dried basil, crushed red pepper flakes and cooked green pepper.
- Fold over the omelette and cook another little bit until the egg is cooked through and the cheese is melted. Enjoy!
What’s the Best Pan for an Omelette?
A small non-stick frying pan works best here.
For a two-egg omelette, use a small pan, about 8 inches in diameter. You want a pan that’s not too large (so the eggs spread out too much).
Tips and Variations
- This is an omelette for one. However, you can easily make more. Just keep your omelettes warm in a 200 degree Fahrenheit oven while you are preparing the others.
- Store-bought pizza sauce was used for this omelette, but you can make your own, should you wish. Just keep in mind that the store-bought stuff may be a little thicker.
- Use whatever bell pepper colour you like.
- If you like, you can totally throw in some crispy salami or pepperoni into the omelette filling!
