Low-Calorie Pizza Omelet: A Quick & Tasty Recipe


For anyone on a calorie deficit or looking to cut back, we’ve got the perfect treat for you: pizza omelets!

Read time: 5 minutes

Craving something savory and delicious without wrecking your calorie budget? Well we've got a really simple solution for you – it's time to whip up a pizza omelet. And, what’s more, you can use your handy electric shaker bottle to mix your eggs, making the whole thing even simpler.

Ingredients and Calorie Breakdown

Here’s what you’ll need for your pizza omelet.

  • Turkey pepperoni slices: 5 slices (about 70 calories)
  • Low-fat mozzarella cheese: 1/4 cup (about 80 calories)
  • Eggs: 2 large (about 140 calories)
  • Whole wheat tortilla: 1 (about 130 calories)
  • Cooking spray or olive oil: for greasing the pan (negligible calories if used sparingly)

Total calorie count per serving: Approximately 420 calories

Step-by-Step Guide to Making a Pizza Omelet

Heat the Pan:

Start by heating a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Lightly grease it with cooking spray or a small amount of olive oil.

Add Turkey Pepperoni

Place turkey pepperoni slices evenly into the hot pan, allowing them to sizzle slightly. This not only warms them up but also releases some flavorful oils. Obviously you can use regular pepperoni but this can get very oily.

Sprinkle Cheese

Evenly sprinkle the low-fat mozzarella cheese over the pepperoni. The heat from the pan will start to melt the cheese, binding the pepperoni slices together.

Mix the Eggs

Crack the eggs into an electric shaker bottle, adding a pinch of salt and pepper. Shake well until the mixture is frothy

Add Your Mixed Eggs

Pour the mix evenly over the cheese and pepperoni in the skillet.

Place Tortilla

Carefully lay a whole wheat tortilla on top of the egg mixture. Press down lightly to ensure the tortilla sticks to the egg. Then cover the skillet with a lid to allow everything to cook gently on low heat.

Cook and Flip

Let it cook for about 2-3 minutes. The eggs should set during this time. Using a spatula, carefully flip the tortilla so it’s now on the bottom, with the egg and pepperoni facing up.

Final Cooking and Serving:

Cook for another minute to crisp up the tortilla. Slide the pizza omelet onto a cutting board, cut into wedges, and serve hot!

Why This Recipe Works

This pizza omelet is a great savory treat for your taste buds while keeping your calorie intake low. The use of a whole wheat tortilla offers a healthier, fiber-rich alternative to traditional white flour bases, and the high-protein toppings like turkey pepperoni and eggs make it filling and nutritious.

Low-Calorie Variations to Try

Like all omelets, this recipe is incredibly versatile, allowing you to mix up your meal routine with tasty and health-conscious choices. Here are some delicious variations on the pizza omelet that stay low in calories but are high in flavor:

Veggie Delight

  • Go green and guilt-free with a vegetable-packed version of the pizza omelet. Load up on fresh spinach, diced tomatoes, and sliced mushrooms. You could also add onions, zucchini, and bell peppers for an extra crunch and flavor. These vegetables not only add volume and nutrients but also vibrant colors, making your meal even more visually appealing.
  • Calorie Count: Adding these vegetables contributes very few additional calories, keeping the dish around 430-450 calories depending on the amounts used.

Meat Lovers' Feast

  • If you're a fan of a hearty meal, opt for lean meats. Maybe replace the turkey pepperoni with diced chicken breast or turkey sausage. These proteins are excellent for staying fuller for longer and are much leaner alternatives to traditional pork or beef toppings. For an extra kick, you could add a small amount of reduced-fat bacon or ham.
  • Calorie Count: Using lean chicken or turkey adds about 30-50 calories per serving, depending on the quantity, making this variation come in at about 450-470 calories.

Seafood Special

  • Seafood isn’t for everyone but it’s a great source of Omega 3s. So top your omelet with pre-cooked shrimp, a scattering of scallops, or even some chunks of crabmeat. A sprinkle of dill, and perhaps a squeeze of lemon juice, will complement the seafood beautifully.
  • Calorie Count: Seafood, especially shrimp and scallops, is very low in calories. This variation typically adds only about 30-50 calories, keeping the total dish around 450-470 calories.
