Ingredients

  • ball of prepared dough
  • 2  Tablespoons  olive oil
  • 1/4  Cup  all-purpose flour or cornmeal
  • medium tomatoes, diced
  • 1 1/2  Cup  packed black kale, shredded or baby spinach
  • eggs
  • 1/2  Cup  Parmigiano-Reggiano or pecorino cheese, grated
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste

Directions

Let the dough rise on the counter overnight in a lightly oiled bowl covered with plastic wrap or a damp towel.

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F and place a rack in the center of the oven. Once the dough has doubled in size, punch down the dough. Then, sprinkle the work surface with flour or cornmeal and roll the dough to you desired shape, about ¼-inch thick. Next, brush the dough with olive oil and add chopped tomatoes, kale, or spinach. Make little wells for the eggs in the vegetables and crack the eggs directly on top. Then, sprinkle on the grated cheese and season with black pepper and salt.

Transfer the pizza directly onto the oven grate and bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until the eggs are fully set. Then, let cool slightly and serve.

Breakfast Pizza Shopping Tip

What’s the difference between brown and white eggs? Besides color, nothing – different breeds of chicken account for the differences in color – quality and freshness are what really count.

Breakfast Pizza Cooking Tip

In addition to keeping foods like granola, yogurt, and fruit on hand, plan ahead for hectic weekdays by whipping up extra batches of waffles or pancakes and individually freezing them for easy morning meals.
