Pizza at brunch – what could be better? This white pizza frittata has all the flavors of pizza that you love in an irresistible and filling baked egg frittata. Brunch perfection!
This post is part of my partnership with Milk Means More.
Anyone besides me already planning Mother’s Day brunch menus? It’s super early, I know, but I’m obsessed with brunch food and this white pizza frittata recipe is perfect for the vegetarians at your table.
It’s not, however, perfect for vegans. Obviously. You know, because of the eggs and three types of cheese. How do vegans do it? I could never survive without eggs and cheese. You can keep your cashew “cream” sauces and nutritional yeast “cheese,” I’ll take the real thing. Plus, eggs! How does one live without eggs? You can’t scramble a flax egg and eat it for breakfast. I’m not knocking anyone’s dietary choices, I just COULD NOT DO IT.
I love making frittatas of all types: asparagus leek frittata, frittata with spinach and green chiles, or this sweet potato and spinach egg bake (can we call that one a frittata?) This white pizza frittata is ultra flavorful thanks to garlic, oregano, and fresh basil.
It’s also super filling thanks to the eggs and three types of cheese (Mozzarella, Ricotta, and Parmesan). The spinach gives you a boost of greens that will keep you energized throughout the whole morning and maybe even into the afternoon!
This white pizza frittata will blow everyone away at any brunch you host this year. If you’re looking to round out brunch, try pairing this with a pear hibiscus brunch cocktail, a pretty salad, some bacon (duh), and a gorgeous fruit salad. Cookie bars for dessert, maybe?
Used in this recipe:
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1 large clove garlic, minced
- 12 ounces frozen spinach, thawed and water pressed out

- In an oven-safe skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic and cook for 2 minutes or until fragrant. Once garlic is fragrant, add spinach and break it up to incorporate and heat.

Husband’s take: He’s not a garlic fan – when I make this white pizza frittata again, I’ll cut back on the garlic for him.
Changes I would make: None are necessary.
