Posts Tagged ‘egg and bacon pizza’

Our very tired, very happy Big Boy arrived home last night after a week away.  As I was up early, I made a batch of yeasted dough, and turned half of it into breakfast pizzas for him, and the other half into man’oushe for Small Man.

  • One batch of yeasted bread dough (makes four pizzas)
  • One egg per pizza
  • Mushrooms
  • Prosciutto or pancetta
  • Tomatoes
  • Mozzarella cheese

1. After the first rise, divide the dough into four pieces and shape each piece into a ball.  Cover and leave to rise for at least another 15 minutes.  Preheat the oven to maximum.  For more instructions and photos, please see this post.

2. On a sheet of parchment, and working with lightly oiled fingers, spread each ball into a circle, leaving a slightly raised edge.  Brush the top of the dough with olive oil.

3. Cut the tomatoes in half, squeeze to remove excess juice, then slice.  Top each pizza with sliced or grated mozzarella first, then with the tomato, sliced mushrooms and prosciutto.  Finally crack an egg into the middle of the pizza, and break the yolk with a fork.

4. Turn the oven down to 230C and gently slide the pizza on its sheet of parchment onto a preheated oven stone (the egg will be very runny), and bake until brown and the egg is set.  I carefully remove the paper after the first few minutes.  Alternatively, shape and bake the pizza directly on a parchment lined tray.

You could, of course, use any ingredients you like – these were just the ones I had on hand at 6am this morning!
