10-Minute Skillet Pizza

Question: Who doesn’t love a slice of pizza?

Answer: Only a person whom pizza does not love back. You know who you are.

Homemade pizza is in its own class of delicious. Some people don’t have the time or effort to bake it since it entails kneading, rising, rolling, and baking; especially while a savoury pie can be delivered to your doorstep without any extra effort.

Even as an individual who enjoys working the kitchen, sometimes the pizza process can become tedious, especially when it comes to gluten-free recipes. The ingredient list is longer, the baking instructions are tedious, and the kitchen becomes an overall mess. The end result may be unsatisfactory at best, downright gross at worst.

This recipe takes only 10 minutes to make a heavenly mini-pizza pie you can top as desired.

I know that pizza is a fast food, but if you are making your own, there should be basic nutrition involved, (or, at least that’s what I believe.) When it comes to dairy-free pizza, (yes, the picture above is completely dairy-free) there is a depressing lack of protein which will make you feel hungry very quickly after eating.

The base of this pie is eggs, which fixes the no-protein problem and provides you with iron, vitamins, and carotenoids which promote memory and brain function. Eggs have received a bad rap when it comes to cholesterol, but current studies have debunked that myth and proved that this staple food actually promotes heart health. So eat your eggs, and this innovative pizza recipe is the best way to do just that.

The awesome part of this recipe is that you can whip it up for any meal or snack. It’s hard to get sick of pizza,especially with such a diversity of toppings available. In the photographs, I used a mixture of green olives, mushrooms, red peppers, with a sprinkle of chili flakes for the extra kick. Here are more ideas to choose from:

  • Grilled eggplant
  • Grilled zucchini
  • Green peppers
  • Tomatoes
  • Black olives
  • Jalapeno peppers
  • Spinach
  • Broccoli
  • Sliced onions
  • Crushed garlic
  • Goat or feta cheese
  • Pesto

In all honesty, this is The Creative Palate. Get creative with toppings. You won’t know something tastes horrible until you try it, even if the idea is prosperous. That is how I discovered the incredible combination of peanut butter and pickles. Sounds gross, right? Well, it definitely surprised me. If you decide to ignore everything in this article, just try that.

While you are at it, try this pizza recipe as well. Homemade pizza has just become simpler and healthier.
