Spinach and Egg Pizza on Whole Wheat Crust

Spinach and Egg Pizza on Whole Wheat Crust

Everyone that I’ve mentioned this recipe to is a little bit put off by it.  Spinach?  Egg?  Whole wheat crust? PIZZA?!?!?

Yes.  Spinach and Egg Pizza on Whole Wheat Crust might sound a bit off-putting, but it is one of the more tasty, healthy recipes that I’ve played around with lately.  I’ve made it a couple of times now, and have perfected the recipe to the point where it will probably turn into one of those “go-to” dinners because it is healthy, quick, and flavorful.

Whole Wheat Pizza Crust

Normally when I make a pizza at home, I buy some frozen dough at the local Italian deli and start with that as the base.  This recipe, though, starts with a pre-made crust.  It adds to that “fast convenience” factor that you’ve just got to have mid-week.  Baboli makes some reasonable, bread-like crusts, and they even come in whole wheat! 

After brushing the crust lightly with some olive oil, it’s ready to pile on the spinach!

Prepared for the oven

Another reason this is fast and convenient is because it uses bagged, pre-washed spinach from the store in the winter, or from our CSA in the summer.  About half the bag, chopped, works perfectly for this crust.  Also added is some salt, pepper, garlic, parmesan cheese, basil, bruschetta and sliced prosciutto.  Just a word of warning – you may want to be very careful about actually saying those last two ingredients out loud in grocery stores – it has been known to raise a ruckus… 

This gets tossed into a 450 degree oven for about 12 minutes.  Once in the oven, you’re ready to fry up some eggs, which get placed on the pizza when it comes out of the oven.

Slice of Pizza Mmmm...

Yes, egg on pizza.  Long before Bon Appetit magazine named “Eggs on top of anything” one of the top 100 trends of 2009, we were putting eggs on top of things.  Eggs on a bed of spring greens that have been tossed with a light vinaigrette is spectacular!  Try it!

But I digress. Put the cooked egg on the pizza, sprinkle with some parmesan cheese, salt and pepper and enjoy!
