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 vegetarian omelette is so good for an easy 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-fying’ things (is that even a thing, LOL??). 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 herby skillet potatoes!
Why This Pizza Omelette is Great!

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 pan, cook some green pepper in a little olive oil to soften and then remove from the pan.
- In a bowl, beat eggs with a little milk, salt and pepper.
- Melt butter in the skillet.
- Once butter is melted, pour in the whisked egg mixture.
- Gently swirl eggs around the pan and as they set, loosen the edges with a spatula.
- Once eggs are almost cooked (but not quite), add shredded mozzarella to one half of the egg mixture.
- Then, pour over pizza sauce, dried basil and crushed red pepper flakes.

- Fold over the omelette and cook another little bit until the egg is cooked through and cheese is melted. Enjoy!

What’s the Best Pan for an Omelette?
A small non-stick pan works best here.
Opt for a small pan, about 6 inches in diameter. You want a pan that’s not too large (so the eggs spread out too much).
More Tips & Variations
If you don’t need this to be a vegetarian omelette, you can totally throw in some crispy salami or pepperoni into the mix if you prefer!
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.
Use whatever bell pepper colour you like!
Store-bought pizza sauce was used for this omelette, but you can make your own, should you wish, like this pizza sauce recipe. Just keep in mind that the store-bought stuff may be a little thicker.
