take my word for it wednesday or thursday.. egg on a pizza is pretty darn good!!

 
ok this was supposed to post yesterday and well time got away from me.. and i forgot.. take my word for it wednesday is when i need you to trust me and take my word for something.. it might be because the picture is funky, which is kinda the case today.. or might be a dish I really really want you to try.. which is also this case today or yesterday rather {ha}..  i have seen on diners drive ins and dives pizza with eggs on them and thought eh.. then i saw one on another show, which right now i can't recall, and it looked amazing.. well believe you me this pizza is pretty amazing..
 

when you combine the saltiness and spiciness of the pepperoni and the creaminess of the egg.. oh my it's perfection.. remember when i made i pepperoni and scrambled egg breakfast burritos... this blows that out of the water.. we had this for dinner but i have no qualms of having pizza for breakfast.. you must try this.. take my word for it eggs on pizza is GOOD!! {my poor pizza stone, as seen below, is getting pretty dark.. it's well used and i love it, i actually have 2; one that is round and one that is rectangle.. they are equally used and equally dark..}


pepperoni and egg pizza

prep time: 15 minutes
cooking time: 7 minutes
servings: 2 pizzas

ingredients:

pizza dough, cut in half, {my go to recipe that i use can be found here or a pre made pizza dough from the store can be used}
2 cups of fresh grated mozzarella cheese {divided}
1/2 cup chopped pepperoni  {divided}
4 room temperature large eggs
6 roasted garlic cloves and garlic oil {recipe for roasted garlic cloves and oil can be found here..}
fresh cracked black pepper

preheat your oven to 500 degrees (f) for 30 minutes with your pizza stone in the oven.. while it's heating cut the pizza dough in half and roll out each 1/2 of the dough on a floured surface to the thickness your family likes.. slide one pizza dough on to a piece of parchment paper.. brush garlic olive oil all over dough and then add your fresh cracked black pepper.. sprinkle 1/2 the mozzarella on your dough.. sprinkle with 1/2 the pepperoni and 1/2 of the roasted garlic..{you can wait and do this after you crack your eggs on the pizza it's up to you} now pick up parchment and pizza and slide gently onto pizza stone now crack 2 eggs close to the pizza and allow the egg to fall gently onto the pizza. {i did not do this i cracked the eggs before i put it on the pizza stone and had one heckuva mess..}bake until lightly brown and cheese is melted and the white of the eggs are cooked .. about 6-7 minutes.. but keep an eye on it.. remove from oven and allow to cool for about 2-3 minutes...slice and serve.. {repeat with the second pizza} what i did was cut it in half and pete and i each got a 1/2 with an egg on our piece, we then dipped the crust in the egg and it was heavenly..


enjoy and get cook'n!!!
