foodie wednesday: egg pizza

a few nights ago, i was feeling pizza.  i seem to always default to my favorite, go-to toppings - like roasted veggies - so i was determined to push the envelope (at least a bit) more than usual...

and this is what i came up with:

egg pizza

1/2 olive oil dough recipe {here}
1/2 cup shredded chicken (i used leftover bbq chicken)
1/4 cup chopped kalamata olives
3 eggs
2-4 oz crumbled feta
1/2 cup marinara sauce
cracked pepper
chopped basil

preheat oven to 425 degrees.

1. sprinkle cornmeal on pizza stone (or a baking tray) and stretch dough.

2. spread the dough evenly with the sauce, followed by 3 cracked eggs (yolks intact), chicken, olives and feta.

3. bake for 15-20 min & then remove from oven and allow to cool for a few minutes before cutting.

4. season with cracked pepper and then sprinkle with fresh basil.

mangia!  mangia!

craig really loved this protein-packed pizza because the eggs added an awesome, creamy richness to the meal.  definitely will make it again!

you wondering what i did with the other 1/2 of the dough???  we enjoyed it the other night topped with homemade pesto mixed with a little marinara, olives and provolone cheese.  so yummy too : )
