Veggie Lover's Breakfast Pizza

As some of you may or may not know I've been on the Whole 30 for 12 days now. So I was in need of a breakfast revamp. Don't get me wrong, eggs are still my staple breakfast protein. I just wanted a new way of making them. I'm happy to share this deliciousness with you today. 

For some background, Whole30 has strict rules AGAINST making "Whole30 approved desserts" or trying to recreate foods that have some emotional tie to your pre-Whole30 days. I completely agree with this rule as the Whole30 is about changing old habits and creating new, healthy ones.

However, I was never addicted/had cravings for pizza pre-Whole30 or now. Actually, I never really liked pizza for most of my life. Some just taste like cardboard and have "sandy crusts". Sorry for pizza lovers out there! Maybe I just haven't found the "best".

So for me, there were no bad habits creeping back in when creating this Whole30 approved breakfast pizza. However, this pizza, I enjoyed. The "sauce" portion is not that watery red stuff, it's a rich and creamy spread that is GOOD FOR YOU. I repeat... GOOD. FOR. YOU. 

Okay, i'm done ranting... the recipe should speak for itself. 

For "pizza dough":
3 eggs + 1 egg white
Who was expecting it to be another Cauli-crust? Nope, purely eggs this time- new breakfast favorite! Scramble your eggs in a separate bowl while Ghee is melting in a sauté pan. Pour to create a flat "pancake". While heat is on high wait until the sides cook up (usually the first part to cook). Reduce heat to low and cover with a lid (or extra plate is always easy). In about 5 minutes, the bottom of your eggs will be crispy and it will have cooked through without you needing to flip it and mess up the pretty circle. You want the bottom to be crispy...not burnt, crispy.

For "pizza sauce":

1 whole ripe avocado
2 tbs. lemon juice
1 whole jalapeno (Adjust to preference)

Cut open your avocado and mix with lemon juice in a small bowl. Add in chopped (de-seeded) jalapeno, combine well.  Done, super easy! You don't need to use the whole avocado and can half the recipe easily. I have come to realize I need more fats in the morning, to keep me full through my morning. Adjust to your personal preference.

For "pizza toppings":
favorite veggies (~3/4 c.)
This is the most customizable part! Just like when you go to a pizza parlor and order your own personal pizza, you get to put whatever toppings you want! I stayed away from protein, since the crust was my protein component. For my pizza I wanted some vibrant colored veggies. Just for esthetics but they're also good for you-what could be better? I used some squash, bell peppers, red onion and eggplant (all my veggies were sautéed in coconut oil first).

Assemble like a pizza- crust (eggs), sauce (avocado), toppings (veggies).
