Breakfast will always be my favorite meal of the day and although the ingredients rarely ever change, the form of my egg scrambles does every so often!  I’ve mentioned many times that my go to first meal is a HUGE veggie & egg scramble.  I not only love vegetables, but they also provide so much nutrient dense volume in food/meals.  Sometimes I like tricking myself into thinking I’m eating for 2, 3, or 4 people and vegetable definitely provide that HUGE portion size for me.  Its usually just easier whipping up a quick scramble but I had a bit more time one day and was itching to try something a little bit different that was inspired by my recent low carb chicken taco dish. This took a couple of more easy steps than my usual breakfast, but 100% entirely worth it!!!  I’m pretty impress with the results actually…

Isn’t it so beautiful?  So full of color, different textures, and all things perfect to get your day started on the right track!

I still can’t get over this “crust”… popping it in the oven to toast up the edges makes ALL the difference in the world!

It even cuts and folds just like a pizza…
