Zucchini Frittata

This may not classify as a frittata due to the fact that it’s not partially cooked on the stove first so I was iffy about calling it just that… but I did anyway.  Honestly, I don’t care what you call it because I’m just calling it delicious!!!

I sliced zucchini real thin and layered it on the bottom of a nonstick green life pan (these are the amazing ones that you see on TV where NOTHING sticks to them and they’re freaking incredible and super easy to clean). Then I sprinkled it with crushed red pepper, fresh ground black pepper, and garlic powder.

I slid it under the broiler for three minutes to allow the zucchini to brown up befote putting the egg on top!

I whisked 4 eggs together and then mixed in my chopped arugula and fire roasted red pepper.

Then I added the egg and veggie mixture on top of the cooked zucchini.

And then I sprinkled on some crumbled goat cheese

And layered with more zucchini

Of course I had to finish with more spices – garlic powder, black pepper and crushed red pepper.

I baked it on 350 for 15 minutes.

Then broiled it for 3 minutes to slightly brown the zucchini on top. 

Then, slide it right out on to a cutting board

Slice it right up like a pizza and enjoy!

This has to be my favorite fritatta/low carb/crustless bfast pizza yet!!!
