As the schedule starts to slow down before summer, I have purposefully headed back to the gym with the intention of not taking a couple months worth of a break ever again. When I work out, my body is not only more lean, but is healthier. This time last year, I had lost 30 pounds and regained my female health after going 8 months without a period the year before. My health was declining, and with diligence, my body was more comfortable, more healthy, and more trim than it was in awhile.
When I workout, I naturally want to eat right because I work out as hard as I can handle, and you've gotta have the right calories and nutrients for your body to keep up. You also need a good night's rest. It's bathing suit season already, but don't let that stop you from starting now and needing a smaller suit by the end of summer.
Now, what you all have been waiting for. THE RECIPE! I seriously have creative streaks where I spontaneously think of a healthier way to eat what I love from my fave restaurants. Pie Five is a new discovery for me. If you haven't been, it's a glorious assembly line where you make your own personal pan pizza. It's glorious. What I put on this omelet version is what I get at Pie Five on the thin crust minus the marinara. It's a worthy substitute. This recipe was inspired by Kalyn's Kitchen, but I wanted mine to taste like my fave Pie Five creation.
Healthy & Homemade Omelet Pie Five Pizza
2 eggs beaten and set aside
Thin slices of fresh mozzarella, ripped by hand into chunks
Cherry tomatoes sliced in half
Fresh spinach torn in pieces
Minced garlic (1/4 tsp)
Black olives (not pictured, but if I had them, I would use them)
Diced red onion (also not pictured, but going on the next one)
- Preheat oven to broil at the last step.
- Preheat a 8 inch pan on medium with olive oil.
- When the pan and oil is heated, pour in the beaten eggs and sprinkle oregano over them.
- When the eggs are half done, start layering all your ingredients.
- Cook until the egg is thoroughly done, but the cheese won't be melted.
- Transfer with a spatula to a casserole dish and broil until the cheese is bubbly brown like pizza (about 2-3 minutes).
When this deliciousness is done, the omelet crust will be brown in color like a pizza crust, and it won't be overdone unless you lost track of time and burned it. It is SO GOOD! Would love to hear if you try it with different variations.

Keep up, Honey!
