Pepperoni Pizza Omelette Recipe
390g packet of passata
3 garlic cloves (crushed) or 1 tbsp frozen garlic
2 tbsp tomato purée
8 medium eggs
1 tbsp dried oregano
200g sliced pepperoni
2 packets of 150g mozzarella, drained
A sprinkling of fresh oregano leaves
A sprinkling of fresh basil leaves
Freshly grated Parmesan
Olive oil (for the pan)
Salt and pepper (for seasoning)
First up, let’s make the tomato sauce. This doesn’t take long. Drizzle a lug of olive oil onto a saucepan and get the hob on a medium heat. Once the oil is warm, add the garlic and heat it up for a minute or so. Pour in the passata and tomato purée and stir it all together before reducing the heat to a simmer. Cook the sauce for around ten minutes before seasoning it with salt and pepper and removing it from the heat. It can cool down while we take the next steps.
Meanwhile, get the oven nice and warm – around 200°C/400°F or gas mark 6.
The next step is to crack our eggs into a jug and whisk them up, seasoning with salt and pepper.
Add a couple of lugs to a large ovenproof frying pan and get the hob up to a medium to high heat. When the oil is warm, pour the eggs in and move the pan around, making sure the liquid moves around and firms up at the bottom. This’ll take a few minutes. Get a fish slice and peel the eggs off the sides, and keep moving the pan. Sprinkle the dried oregano over the eggs.
After a few minutes, once the eggs are firm at the bottom of the pan but still a bit runny at the surface, take them off the heat. Spoon the tomato sauce all over the pizza ‘base’ before covering it with pepperoni slices, torn mozzarella and a sprinkling of fresh oregano leaves.
Next, get the pizza in the oven for about ten minutes. Set a timer for eight minutes and, after that goes off, keep an eye on it to check the cheese has melted and the base is firm. Remember to use oven gloves to get the pan out of the oven.
Once it’s out, sprinkle the fresh basil leaves and grate a handful of Parmesan on top. Get a pizza slicer, cut the pepperoni pizza omelette up into slices and serve up.
