sunny-side-up? say wha?! rise & shine, my friends. yes, that is a pizza with an egg on it. call it breakfast, call it brunch, call it a midnight snack. call it what you want. :)

i’m a big fan of breakfast-for-dinner, so what better way to enjoy it than to combine fried eggs and pizza — two of my favorite things.

two free-range eggs, a homemade yogurt-based, dijon pizza sauce, and some fresh pizza dough from itza bakeshop made for a fantastic base for this culinary experiment.

– preheat oven to 400F

prep the dough:
– sprinkle some whole-wheat flour on a clean surface before rolling out the fresh pizza dough
– using a rolling pin, flatten out the dough into a thin, round pie
– sprinkle some more flour on the dough pie, flip over before applying the rolling pin again
– place the prepped dough pie on a pizza stone (at room temperature) or a lightly-greased, round baking pan

prep the sauce:
whisk together the following ingredients in a small prep bowl:
– 2-3 tbsp low-fat, plain yogurt (instead of traditional pizza sauce)
– 2 tbsp fresh french tarragon (stems removed, leaves finely chopped)
– dollop of dijon mustard
– dash of sea salt
– season w/ ground black peppercorns

prep the toppings:
– 2 free-range eggs (cooked separately, sunny-side-up)
– 1 cup organic cherry tomatoes (sliced into halves)
– 1 cup organic mixed greens
– 75-100g queso blanco (grated)
– 1/4 cup green onions or scallions (rough chop, rooted stems removed)
– 1 tbsp fresh french tarragon (stems removed, leaves finely chopped)

prep the pie:
– spread dijon yogurt-based pizza sauce on the dough pie
– add organic mixed greens over yogurt sauce
– add 2 eggs (cooked sunny-side-up)
– add cherry tomatoes
– season w/ green onion or scallions (rough chop)
– sprinkle 1 tbsp fresh french tarragon (chopped)
– season w/ ground black peppercorns
– generously sprinkle grated cheese evenly over pizza toppings

bake the pie:
– bake pizza at 400F for 20min, or until crust is golden brown
– remove from oven & allow to cool on rack before slicing pizza

food styling:
– season w/ ground black peppercorns
– serve w/ organic mixed greens on the side
– pairs well w/ your fave pinot grigio, or your fave breakfast fruit smoothie. :)

  3. The first time I made a pizza with an egg on top I thought it was the craziest idea (and didn’t think I was going to like it), but oh boy was it delicious! This sounds fantastic. I’m all about breakfast for dinner. :)
