Mini Cracked Egg Pizza

You know the old saying, ” Don’t knock it until you try it”, well all I can say is this, if you haven’t eaten a pizza with a cooked egg on top, you’re missing out! I know it may sound a little weird, but believe me it’s amazing!
Crunchy dough and savory tomatoes anchor one perfectly cracked organic egg along with toppings of smoked ham, fresh spinach, green onions and mozzarella cheese. A complete breakfast all in one, and because they’re mini, you can tailor the toppings to every one’s individual likings.

Wouldn’t this be great to serve to your special Valentine on Sunday morning? You still have time. You can make your own homemade dough or pick up some up from your favorite store or pizza place.
Before you begin though, make sure your dough is at room temperature. Get your oven nice and hot, at least 500F. Rub olive oil on your baking sheet and dust with polenta or cornmeal.
For the heart, take your time and shape it by hand, remember these are mini’s, but make sure you have enough room for the egg white to travel once it’s placed on top.
I like to precook my dough for 5 minutes before anything goes on top, this will also set the shape of the heart or any other shape for that matter.
Crack your egg into a small bowl before it goes on the pizza, you’ll have more control, then add whatever toppings you like. Bake until dough is crispy and eggs are cooked through. Now don’t you want to just stick your fork in that yoke and let it all ooze out?
Happy V-Day, and Buon Appetito!

  1. That is my kind of pizza. Never tried an egg on my pizza but it definitely sounds really good!

  2. Very pretty! Happy Valentine’s Day!

  3. We think along the same lines, Marie. I made a bacon and egg pizza and loved it. Making the pizza in the shape of a heart was a terrific idea for Valentine’s weekend. Can’t wait to try your yummy version.

    Happy Valentine’s Day!

  4. that looks as delishious as beautiful! I actually recd a heart shaped pizza for Valentines Day from a local pizza place. It was a hit at my workplace!!!

  5. My daughter just walked into the room and said it all – “that is darling”! What a cute and delicious idea! An egg on pizza sounds fantastic.

  6. I wouldn’t shy away from eating eggs on pizza with my Valentine. Sounds great!

  7. You’re right. I’ve always thought it was a little weird to put an egg on top of a pizza. But, I try to keep an open mind, if I’m going to explore new foodie discoveries. You talked me into it. How cute is that heart shape! This morning, I was just sitting down to decide what pizza dough to make (for my first time). Great inspiration, Marie! Happy Valentine’s Day!

  8. Oh Marie – What a perfectly gorgeous pizza for V-day – with the egg on top no less. I’ve never tried such a pizza, but it sounds and looks wonderful. If you can enjoy eggs cooked in tomato sauce with toast, this is the next step. Can I come for breakfast?

  9. Your family is blessed to have such an awesome Italian cook! Great idea Marie.. I have never thought of nor have seen this.
    Have a WONDERFUL Valentines day with lots of love, hugs and kisses!!! :) xoxo

  10. I love it! This pizza spreads love and joy, and I’m sure it’s delicious.

  11. Awesome idea and soooo good looking!

  12. I LOVE this. Thanks for sharing!!

  13. Yes, egg on pizza is a definite “must-do.” love the heart shape and love the idea of the egg-goodness spilling into the toomatoes and dough. Happy Valentine’s Day!

  14. I have absolutely no doubt about the yumminess of a cracked egg pizza. I’m definitely putting an egg on my next one. I love the heart shapes, Marie. Very clever!

  15. I agree that this would be perfect to serve to our Valentines on the day!!

  16. I love eggs cooked in tomatoes so why not on a heart shaped pizza? That is a very special breakfast!

    Happy Valentine’s Day!

  17. This is lovely. Can’t wait to try! Thank you!

  18. I too am making pizza for dinner on Valentine’s Day, I am going to make steak and cheese, maybe add onion too. I have made the pizza with eggs on it and my husband and I both enjoyed it. Happy Valentine’s Day.

  19. Perfect for Brunch!

  20. Lovely heart shaped pie. I am always curious if this addition came from the English tourists in Italy or if they were the ones who embraced it so whole heartedly. My English friends first introduced it to me. You won’t believe what is very popular with young people these days in the quest for a new pizza sensation. give up? French fries piled in the middle of a usually simple margherita pizza.

  21. I love it! Great idea to have a heart shaped pizza. And egg, mmm, sounds yummy!

  22. I love breakfast pizzas! What a cute idea to make it heart shaped.

  23. That is the absolute best Valentine’s recipe I’ve seen on the web! You are so creative Marie!

    Happy Valentine’s Day!

  24. I love a cracked egg on top of pizza, very Neapolitan.
    I love the heart shaped pizza, it goes with my heart shaped eggs on my sidebar.
    Happy V day!
    xxoo

  25. great to see all this valentines day shaped food.

  26. Doesn’t sound weird at all to me. In fact, I’d rather have the pizza/egg than a box of the best chocolates in the world. Love it!

  27. What a romantic pizza. And I love cracked egg on pizza.

  28. What a fun breakfast food!!! Great idea Marie!!

    Hope your have a sweet day.

  29. I love the way you have fun with your cooking – like this heart shaped pizza – but still make something that tastes and looks fantastic. I’ve seen pizza with egg on it in restaurants – I even think I saw Mario do it on TV once – but have never tried it. Looks good! And I don’t even like eggs!

  30. What a gorgeous heart shaped pizza. What there not to love – good fresh ingredients!

  31. You rock! How do you come up with these great ideas? I’ll have breakfast at your place any day!
