Pizza Frittata

Pizza Frittata by Danielle Walker's Against all Grain

I had some leftover Applegate pepperoni the other day and was looking for something a bit different to do for breakfast. I grow so tired of the standard eggs and bacon. I love a good baked egg dish, especially my Shirred Eggs with Ham, or really anything that can be whipped together and baked in one dish.

My favorite toppings for pizza are pepperoni and mushrooms, so I threw both of those into this frittata along with sautéed spinach and fresh tomatoes. Feel free to sauté any vegetables you have on hand in your refrigerator and play with the flavors.

    What does the nutritional yeast do in this recipe? Never used it before and was wondering why you’d use it? Does it help it rise? Is there a health benefit? Can it ibe made without it?

      Ok, so I made this this morning, minus the mushrooms, and minus the nutritional yeast (I have no idea what that is or what it does), and this was absolutely yummy! It is so good. My husband even commented that he never would have thought to use pepperoni in eggs!

    I am currently on an anti-candida regimen and cannot eat yeast – or cheese for that matter. So like others, I am wondering if the recipe will be successful without the nutritional yeast. If not, what else might I substitute for it? Thanks in advance.
