Zucchini Breakfast Pizza

Spiralized Zucchini Breakfast "Pizza" // The Pancake Princess

I spent this past week at home, a little breather in between the end of the summer portion of my internship and the beginning of the school year.

In between biking the golden gate bridge (finally!), eating tons of delicious California fruits, eating even more treats from newly famous SF bakeriesmaking pie, and celebrating my birthday a little early with my family at a great little vegan sushi spot, I got to squeeze in a visit with the ever-lovely Alanna: she fed me fantastic financiers and biscuits she was testing for her upcoming cookbook (!!!), took me to a local favorite Mexican joint so I could get my yearly California burrito fix and we caught up on life.

OXO recently sent me their hand-held spiralizer to try out (pictured above) and it instantly become my favorite kitchen tool. I have a more traditional spiralizer, but after using my new tiny, streamlined hand-held spiralizer, the traditional one just seems cumbersome in comparison. For $15, I can’t think of a better investment in vegetable enablement–it’s renewed my excitement for tons of vegetable-based noodle dishes and salads.

When I told Alanna about this recipe and my consternation over what to call it, she was like, “What if you just put pizza in quotes?” It was perfect. This isn’t a pizza in any sense of the traditional word (no tomato sauce, no cheese, no crust), but the spiralized zucchini makes for a fun, light base for an array of breakfast-y toppings like avocado, smoked salmon and egg. (If you don’t have a spiralizer, you can also use grated zucchini, but what’s the fun in that?)

Zucchini Breakfast Pizza

Ingredients

  • 2 medium zucchini, spiralized
  • 1 egg
  • salt and pepper, to taste

  • To serve: sunnyside-up eggs, avocado, smoked salmon, hummus, sliced tomatoes.

Instructions

Stir egg into spiralized zucchini until well-combined; season with salt and pepper.

Heat an oiled 8" frying pan over medium heat. Once hot, add zucchini mixture to pan, spreading it out evenly. Let cook undisturbed for at least five minutes, or until the bottom browns and you can easily slide a spatula underneath. To flip, slide the zucchini mixture onto a plate, then flip it back into the pan so the uncooked side is facing down. Cook for another 5-7 minutes until cooked through.

Add toppings of your choice and serve immediately.

      Hi Myra! Feel free to put the ingredients into a recipe tracker to figure out the carb count; I unfortunately do not track those for my recipes. I would say this serves around 2 people as an entree, and you can make it lighter or more filling depending on the toppings you add!

    This was delicious, but next time I would let the spirals sit in a colander for 20 min to drain out some extra liquid first. I had a hard to getting mine to firm up!

      I KNOW *cryyy* I only remembered when I got back to Houston!!

      We missed out on the cruffins unfortunately, but pretty much everything we got was fabulous! I’m curious to hear what your favorite SF bakery will end up being after a few more months there…I think Tartine is still my #1!

    still need to get to mr holmes; i don’t live in the city, so it’s hard to motivate myself to get up that early (even if the pastries look really tasty!). i can wake up and make this pizza (it looks like a korean pancake!! which are amazing) whenever though, so that would probably happen before a mr holmes trek.

      Oh I feel you. We got there right before noon and I was so worried they would be out of everything! They were out of cruffins, but we still got a box full of stuff. Anything with croissant dough is SO DELICIOUS–super flaky!! I’m normally meh on chocolate croissants, but theirs were super good.

      And so true!! I hadn’t even thought about it but this totally does look like a Korean pancake! Happy pancake-ing and hope you get a chance to try Mr. Holmes soon!! :)
