Ingredients

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 500 degrees F. Coat a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.

  • Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface to about the size of the baking sheet (see Tip). Transfer to the baking sheet. Bake until crisped on the bottom, about 8 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, cook bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until crisp. Drain on a paper towel. Add shallots to the pan and cook, stirring often, until beginning to brown, about 2 minutes. Add asparagus and cook, stirring, until beginning to soften, 2 to 3 minutes more.

  • Spread the vegetables over the crust and crumble bacon on top. Whisk eggs, salt and pepper in a medium bowl until combined; slowly pour over the vegetables, trying not to let any run off the crust. Sprinkle the pizza with cheese. Bake until the eggs are set and the cheese is melted, 8 to 10 minutes.

Tips

Tip: Some prepared dough “resists” being stretched. If your dough is too springy, let it rest for about 15 minutes, then try rolling it out again.

Hit the spot I made my own pizza dough and then made the toppings exactly as the recipe says EXCEPT I added salt and pepper to the veggies to make it more flavorful. It was very good and very filling. I had one serving and didn't feel like I needed anything else to complete my dinner. The eggs do run a little but it wasn't a big deal. Just try to shape your pizza so that you have borders. Next time I might double the onions (I used onions instead of shallots) and caramelize them. All in all this was a great recipe and I'll definitely make it again. Pros: Filling flavorful satisfying healthy easy Cons: Recipe needs more salt & pepper Read More

Great pizza... I made some changes to the recipe by adding a few table spoons of pesto to the base since it has no sauce... also instead of scrambling all 4 eggs i scrambled two to hold everything together then dropped two on whole. The reviewers who mention that it's bland probably didn't season the veggies. I did season mine and added the pesto thought it was just enough:) Pros: healthy alternative Read More

What a mess! It's almost impossible to keep the egg on the pizza so it ended up running all over the oven and burning. The pizza itself was okay though the egg didn't cook through in the time listed. If I made this again (I most likely won't bother) I would omit the egg. Read More

We added baby portabello mushrooms. We had to improvise since we didn't have shallots so we used capollini? onions and caramelized them. Nor did we have cheddar so we improvised with a Jarlsburg and Parmesean mix. It turned out really really good. It's like a quiche pizza. Read More

Turned out great but next time we'll put the dough in middle of the oven when we bake the dough for 8 minutes at 500 (or cook at a slightly lower heat). When we took it out it had cooked in to a huge bread puff and we had to deflate it to get it flat for the toppings. This would be a fantastic brunch pizza to serve with some bloody marys Read More

This is great like quiche and pizza in one. Roll the edges up on your crust B4 baking so the egg won't run off the edge. The second time we made this I doubled the bacon which makes it a lot better. Read More
