    Hi Primo 1,
    I have never made frittata before, but my family loves pizza so this will be well worth trying. The “less” calories alone are a big added plus and pizza is very high in fats and carbs, and packs on the pounds. Have you ever tried making this with low-fat mozzarella, my family is very big on cheese and even though parmesan is a big hit, they would probably complain because there is no other cheese in it. Thank you for the recipe, this looks great and I cannot wait to try it.

      Hi Dana:  Thank you for dropping by and leaving your comment.  By all means do add the extra mozzarella or even provolone if you’d like.  Just remember that the calories and carbs would increase as well. If adding theses cheese try to buy them in bricks and do the grating your self.  I always try to stay away from process foods and that includes grated cheeses.

    Sounds tasty! I am eager to try out this recipe of pizza frittata. Seems very easy, tasty but what I like the most – that only a few products are needed to make this dish. My husband is constantly on a diet so I think he will love this dish. Thank you for the great recipe.

    I am so excited to try this recipe! I just emailed it to my daughter, my mom and my brother. We love pizza but none of us can handle the fat and calories. It looks very easy to fix as well with hardly any prep time as well. Great information. Thanks for sharing.

    Love this recipe. We have done some paleo in the past and I really like the sound of this one. We are planning to give this a try later this week.

    I like the fact that you give all the nutrition facts about the recipe. That is very important especially with the paleo diet.

    I know others that are always putting paleo down, but it is mostly because they don’t understand how it really works.

    Thank you for your posting. It is informational and educational and in this case very tasty.

    I have been doing research on the paleo diet and my first question is how can there be such thing as a paleo pizza if dairy is excluded from the Paleo Diet Menu. Last time I checked cheese is dairy. There is no such thing as a paleo diet pizza and may be better off calling it something else.

    1. admin

      Hi Max: Thank you for dropping by and leaving your comment.  You are 100% correct as far as the Paleo diet is concern by what I practice is the Primal-Paleo diet which is a variation of the Paleo diet.  For example the 85% / !5% rule of the Paleo diet, in the Primal-Paleo diet turns to 80% / 20%.  The Paleo diet does not allow any dairy what so ever but the Primal-Paleo diet will permit certain forms of dairy such as cheese as long as the cheese is is raw, aged and comes from grass-fed animals.  In this diet no processed cheese are allowed such as American cheese singles, Velveeta, Cheez Whiz, and most shredded cheeses.

    Hi Primo,
    I’m glad I found your site, I need to make some changes on my lifestyle, and a good healthy diet is a must for me.
    I’m not a big fan of pizza but I love to have one once in a while.
    This Pizza frittata you have here looks really good, I’m sure I will make one for us, maybe this weekend.
    Thanks for sharing such a good recipe.

    This is a great post. I very much like the idea of pizza, without all the bread and carbs. Especially now days. As I get older it gets harder to keep the weight down. This is the kind of food we love at home. Sorry, but I had to copy the recipe :0) I like that you put the nutrition facts in there too. Very smart.
    This is a fun and capturing page. Very enjoyable!

    Primo,
    Thanks for this wonderfully quick and easy supper idea!
    I love traditional pizza as well but this makes for a very nice and lighter alternative.

    I will admit I would probably have to work some anchovy or sardines into my preparation of your recipe for some extra protein etc.

    As I have aged I have turned to a healthier diet, so thanks for this recipe and your whole site devoted to natural healthy living.
    All my best,
    CannaGary

    This looks absolutely delicious! My family loves pizza. In fact we have it a couple times each week. This would be a great way to have a healthier version for my family.

    I see that you can eat it cold, but I wonder, does this reheat well if we happened to have leftovers? And can you reheat in a microwave, or is the oven a better choice?

    1. admin

      Hi Teresa: Thank you for dropping by and leaving your comment.  This frittata is amazing because you can enjoy the leftovers cold or you can reheat it as well.  When you want to reheat a lot of your leftovers, an oven is your best method. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees as you prepare your frittata. To prepare it, ensure the dish is oven safe, and wrap tightly with aluminum foil and place in the oven. It will take about 20 minutes to reheat completely.

    Hi and thanks for this simple and informative post. So funny, I am actually having frittata for dinner this evening and your page just popped up in my WA. I’ve always enjoyed this dish and it goes down very well, wasn’t sure of the nutritional details though, so I’m surprised and impressed with the low calories and high protein value. I’m thinking that frittata will be on the menu a bit more often in the future.. how often do you cook it?
    Thanks again and all the best to you,
    Nathan

      Hi Nathan: Thanks for the visit and for leaving your comment:  I usually prepare frittata at least once or twice a week for Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner.  You can prepare it in so many ways it’s unbelievable.

    I’ve heard about Frittata! I can’t remember where, but someone had been talking to me about it… and I was always curious – being the big pizza fan that I am 🙂 But I guess I always cut out to the fast food pizza joints… but now I remember that I need to try this!

    I’m just getting into cooking for myself as well… and have been amazed at the wonderful things I can create – if I try and follow a recipe! But I would love to try this next time my parents visit! Thank you!

    As I was reading through your cooking recipe,I was getting more and more hungry. I was curious as to what a frittata actually is. I know what pizza and I was wondering how you can make pizza without any cheese. I guess the main player are the eggs. They create the bulk of the “chews” instead of an unhealthy cheesy crust. It sounds healthy and tasty too. The mushroom and tomatoes sounds very appetizing. I will it later when I have time. I have a question about the last step. When you broil, you meant using the broil function of the oven right I have never used it before so I am not sure.

    1. admin

      Hi Win: Thanks for dropping by and leaving your comment.  Yes, you are correct, just set the oven to broil and when its ready put in the frittata and broil for 3-5 minutes.
