MAKES TWO 10-INCH PIZZAS


TOPPING INGREDIENTS

¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
2-3 shallots, sliced
10-12 Brussel sprouts, sliced
5 or 6 slices of bacon, chopped, sautéed, and drained
8 baby heirloom tomatoes, cut in half
1 14-ounce can of San Marzano tomatoes, drained and cut into small chunks
½ cup shredded mozzarella chunks
4 eggs
¼ cup grated Grana Padano cheese

DIRECTIONS

Preheat grill or oven to 400F. Toss shallots and Brussels sprouts with olive oil in a roasting pan, season with salt and pepper and roast for 15 to 20 minutes. Place the pizza stone on the grill or center oven rack and increase temperature to 500ºF. Brush the center of the pizza crusts with olive oil and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Arrange Brussels sprouts, shallots, bacon, and tomatoes on the pizza. Transfer to the pizza stone and grill or bake for 5 to 7 minutes or to your liking. Remove from heat and crack two eggs on top of each pizza-dough ball. Continue cooking the pizzas until the eggs are just set. Remove from heat, sprinkle Grana Padano on top, cut into slices, and enjoy.

Tip from the Chef:

Grill or bake the pizza on a pizza stone, which absorbs and distributes heat evenly to help achieve a crisp crust. Buy a quality-brand pizza stone, such as EMILE HENRY, that will not crack in extreme heat.

EDITOR'S PICK

A good pizza dough is so versatile. THIS VERSION is great for pizza or breadsticks.
