Omelette Pizza

I can't take full credit for this idea. My boyfriend sent me a link to this article: 10 Foods That Should Exist on College Humor. The first one he wanted: Omelette Pizza. And since he was buying the groceries, I had no problem giving it a try.

This actually turned out to be really delicious. It's almost like a quiche, but the pizza crust absorbs some of the egg and almost makes a savory French toast kind of crust.

You will need: pizza crust (I used the kind in the can but any kind works, but thicker is better than thin), eggs, shredded pepper jack cheese, butter, onion, sweet bell peppers, ham, mushrooms, and parsley.

Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a large skillet.

If you're wondering what that weird blob next to the butter is, it's bacon grease. But if you aren't the type of person who saves that stuff, you can certainly leave it out.

Now add one chopped onion, 1 cup chopped bell pepper, and 1 package sliced mushrooms. Stir until onion is translucent.

While the vegetables are cooking, add the pizza crust to a 9x13 inch pan.

Now poke the crust all over with a fork and melt 1 tablespoon of butter.

Now brush the poked crust with the melted butter. Don't be shy. Butter is good for you. I promise. Well, good for your happiness anyway.

Now chop 1 lb of ham.

Crack 10 eggs into a large bowl.

Add 1 tablespoon parsley and some salt and pepper. Also add in a tablespoons of half and half, which I forgot to take a photo of.

Whisk to combine.

Now throw in the ham and all of the cooked veggies. Stir it up.

Next throw in 2 cups of shredded pepper jack.

Now pour all of this into your crust.

And top with another 1/2 cup of pepper jack. Bake for 35 minutes at 350.

Now that's a fine looking omelette pizza.

It was really tasty too.

Enjoy this guys!  I think the next thing I'll try on that list is mac and cheese burgers...
