Put an egg on it.
Pizza with an egg on it seems to be catching on around San Diego. I live right by the Italian section of town, and my favorite spot has an amazing brunch pizza. Complete with an egg on it. I was craving just such a pizza yesterday and made my own version for Vegas and me.
If an egg on a pizza isn’t strange enough for you, try it on a gluten-free, dairy-free cauliflower crust pizza. It’s crazy good. #VegasApproved
I sautéed red onion, asparagus, and red bell peppers to add this pizza. At the very end I added arugula and spinach. I find if you wilt it a bit first it doesn’t burn up in the oven.
The crust was left over from this pesto mushroom pizza. I always make extras to keep on had for a quick “instant” pizza. They freeze really well!
I also cooked the eggs about half way before putting them on the pizzas. I’m impatient and it’s too much to get it even in the over. Plus, I like to add an extra egg white. Because protein, bro.
I used marinara sauce on this pie, but it would also be good with pesto. I meant to grate some cheese over the top… but I completely forgot! A testament to the stand-alone deliciousness of this creation.
Or my insane schedule this week.
Here’s to #yolkporn and brunch!
