Leftover Pizza Frittata (Using Leftover Pizza)

slices prepared pizza, chopped into 1/2 inch cubes
  • tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 1/2 cups fresh baby spinach, roughly chopped
  • garlic clove, minced
  • eggs, beaten
  • 3/4 cup sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon italian seasoning
  • black pepper
  • tablespoons grated parmesan cheese


  1. 1
    Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  2. 2
    Dump your chopped leftover pizza cubes into a large mixing bowl.
  3. 3
    Heat the olive oil in a medium saute pan and then add the spinach and garlic. Toss in the oil over medium-low heat until the spinach has wilted and garlic is lightly cooked. Pour the spinach mixture over the pizza bits and mix well. [If you're using different extras, just skip the spinach prep and add your fixings, chopped into small pieces, to the pizza bits and toss well.].
  4. 4
    Beat the six eggs in a separate bowl, then add the the sharp cheddar, Italian seasoning, and pepper (if you need salt, add that now too) and mix.
  5. 5
    Pour the egg mixture over the pizza and mix to combine. Allow this to sit for a few minutes to absorb egg and flavor.
  6. 6
    Finally, pour the fritatta mixture into a greased 8 inch square or circular pan (I use my 8 inch glass pie dish) and sprinkle the top with the Parmesan cheese. Place this in the oven and allow to cook for 20-25 minutes, or until golden on top and cooked through. Be careful with time as not all pizzas are created equal! A moister pizza won't absorb as much egg, so it may take longer; alternatively, a dryer pizza will probably cook faster.
