Spinach and Egg Pizza
Every Friday night, we like to make pizza at home. We usually make one or two, and sometimes I’ll have pizza crusts leftover. But instead of saving them for the following week, I love to make a breakfast pizza on Saturday morning. My husband starting making breakfast pizzas on Sundays when we use to work at the same pizza place. He’d bring in a dozen eggs and make enough for the whole crew. They were amazing. He’d add different combinations of meats and veggies. It was a great way to start a very busy Sunday shift.
There’s so many ways to make egg pizzas. I usually use whisked eggs, but just breaking the egg right on the crust like this is so nice. Then you can cook the egg yolk just the way you like it.
For this pizza, I started with pesto sauce and then added a little Parmesan cheese. Then I spread over some healthy fresh sautéed spinach that I coked in olive oil. Then after baking, I sprinkled on freshly chopped spring onions and seasoned it with salt and pepper.
If you’re concerned about your eggs be sure to use Davidson’s Safest Choice pasteurized eggs. “Davidson’s Safest Choice® Eggs are pasteurized in an all-natural, gentle water bath pasteurization process to eliminate the risk of Salmonella. The vast majority of eggs sold in grocery stores are NOT pasteurized. Safest Choice™ offers peace of mind when making recipes calling for raw or undercooked eggs, and removes the worry of cross contamination.
