One-Pan Spicy Italian Sausage Paleo Pizza for Two

It was one of those nights when I just did not feel like making anything that took a very long time.

Oh wait… that would be almost every night. Nevertheless, I assure you that this night I really meant it.

Anyway, I did not have much in the fridge, but I did have some eggs and some Italian sausage I had to finish, so I decided to make this very special omelette-y pizza. My husband looked dubious about the whole thing (he’s not a huge fan of omelette for dinner) but in the end he volunteered himself in saying it was “very good,” which (coming from my husband) was quite a compliment!

This “pizza”  is easy, delicious, heavy-laden with nutritious vegetables, great for breakfast lunch or dinner, and comes non-paleo-lovin’ husband approved.
