Egg & Potato Pizza

I made an Egg & Potato pizza for our Pizza Cook-Off.  I’ve seen pizzas with eggs on them on a few different cooking shows & decided to add egg to the pizza.  I wasn’t sure how it would come out, having never done it before…but the worst that could happen was we would have to throw it in the trash…so we gave it a try.  The ingredients were unexpected by our guests, but came together perfectly for a surprisingly delicious pizza!  Here is my recipe…

Egg with Potato, Onion & Shallot Pizza

  • 1 lb pizza dough, set the dough out to rise at room temperature for a few hours.
  • 6 small yukon gold potatoes, sliced thinly
  • 1 small sweet onion, diced
  • 2 shallots, diced
  • 3/4 lbs diced pancetta
  • 1 lb bacon sliced
  • 1/2 c shredded Fontina Cheese
  • 1/2 c shredded Asiago Cheese
  • Roasted Garlic
  • Salt, Pepper, Dried Basil, Olive Oil

Preheat oven to 475 degrees.  I sauteed the sliced bacon, then placed the cooked bacon on a paper towel lined plate.  I dumped the grease out.  I sauteed the diced pancetta next, placed the cooked pancetta with the bacon.  Reserved the pancetta grease in the pan.  Next I put the onions & shallots in the reserved grease, cooked for about 2 minutes.  Add potatoes to the onion & shallot mix, cook in batches if you need to depending on pan size until potatoes are just starting to soften.  Put the potato mixture on a paper towel lined plate.

Put some olive oil in a small bowl, add some chopped roasted garlic, salt, pepper & dried basil…about a sprinkle of each.  Mix the oil.  Add a little olive oil onto a cookie sheet, spread out in the pan.  Place the dough on top of the pan.  Slowly & carefully spread the dough out until it is spread into a rectangle.  Using a pastry or grill brush, brush the seasoned oil all over the dough.

Next top with the potato mixture, in one layer spread over the pizza.  Sprinkle the pancetta & bacon onto the pizza.  Top with both of the shredded cheeses.

Crack the eggs one at a time & place on pizza.  Evenly spaced.  Bake for 12 minutes.  Check egg for desired doneness.  Cut & enjoy!
