Veggie “Pizza” Omelet

1/4 cup (60 ml) bell peppers, chopped
1/4 cup (60 ml) onions, chopped
2 teaspoons (10 ml) olive oil, divided
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon (15 ml) milk
1/4 cup (60 ml) part-skim mozzarella, grated


  • Heat one teaspoon olive oil in a small, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Saute the onions and peppers for 3–5 minutes. Set aside.
  • Add remaining teaspoon of oil to the empty skillet. Whisk together the milk and eggs and pour into the skillet. Lower the heat to medium.
  • Using a wooden spoon, gently push cooked portions aside to allow uncooked eggs to reach the skillet bottom. Do this a few times until the bottom of the omelet starts to set. Top with the veggie mixture and mozzarella. When mozzarella melts, sprinkle with salt and pepper if desired.
