This low carb breakfast pizza delivers satisfying flavors with a lightly crisp edge. Creamy, garlicky cream cheese is your “sauce”, then top with scrambled eggs and your favorite toppings. So yummy, and Mister-approved!
Pizza for breakfast! I’m so not opposed to actual pizza for breakfast. You’ve got your protein, dairy, some fiber, and even veggies if you go the supreme route, right?
Growing up, I often had leftover cold pizza in the morning. Now, as a Trim Healthy Mama, I still enjoy pizza for breakfast, it’s just a healthier version.
Healthier doesn’t mean not as tasty though, not at all!
All my favorite low-carb pizzas make for fantastic leftovers (like my Holy Grail/Fathead Himalayan Salt Plate Pizza…IF there’s leftovers of course 😉 ). But what if you’re in the mood for actual breakfast food?
You know, eggs and stuff?
No problem! Just Make This Easy Low Carb Breakfast Pizza!
It’s easy because it uses a low carb wrap for a crust.
I personally prefer the Joseph’s Lavash Bread – the kind with flax and oat fiber and 5g net carbs per serving. If you can’t find it locally (many Walmart stores carry it) you can order it from my affiliate partner.
They’re considered a “frankenfood” but they are plan-approved for the Drive Through Sue types. I’m a combination of both Serene (and her crunchy purist ways) and Pearl (who doesn’t mind shortcuts here and there), so I don’t mind using these convenience foods on occasion.
If you find the weight not budging, and you eat a lot of convenience-type foods like these, you might want to try cutting back on them. Some people just don’t lose as well eating lots of prepackaged low carb wraps. Focusing on real, whole foods the majority of the time is best nutritionally.
You could of course use your favorite homemade low-carb pizza crust, but that moves this recipe out of the easy category. If you’re a purist, it’s no big thing though, right?
Top It Any Way You Want.
The beauty of this easy low carb breakfast pizza recipe is that you can really get creative. I chose common breakfast food toppings, but feel free to go wild.
Just stick to plan guidelines, ok? This is an S-friendly recipe, so that means you’ll want S-friendly toppings. No sweet potatoes or pineapple here, those are too starchy and carby for S meals.
Not sure what the plan guidelines are for an S meal? You’ll want to refer to Chapter 3 in the Trim Healthy Mama Plan Book. You’ll find a list of S-friendly foods there (as well as learn all about the S meal, if you’re new to the plan).
Some possible combinations to consider (with or without scrambled eggs):
- Turkey bacon, avocado, one or two sliced cherry tomatoes, and arugula
- Cooked chicken, diced hard boiled egg, spinach
- Turkey bacon, turkey sausage, olives or capers
- Leftover taco meat, jalapenos, salsa, olives – then top with lettuce and sour cream before serving
- Or a non-starchy veggie bonanaza: peppers, onions, tomatoes, spinach or arugula, thinly sliced zucchini
If you’re a breakfast-any-time-of-day person, this would also make a great lunch or supper option.
