Ingredients

1
(14 oz) prepared pizza dough
1 c
crisp crumbled applewood-smoked bacon
c
cornmeal for dusting
olive oil, as needed
1/2 Tbsp
butter
1/2 c
chunky tomato sauce
1 c

4 medium
eggs
2 Tbsp
grated parmesan cheese
salt and black pepper, as needed

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat oven to 450°F.
Divide dough ball into 4 pieces and roll or hand stretch each into a 7-inch crust. Sprinkle lightly with cornmeal and arrange cornmeal side down, on baking sheets
2
Combine butter and spinach in small nonstick skillet and sauté over medium heat for 30 to 60 seconds, stirring constantly, until just wilted and reserve
3
Spread tomato sauce evenly over each pizza and top with spinach and Fontina cheese. Sprinkle bacon around outer edge of each pizza (leaving center open for egg)
4
Bake for 4 minutes. Remove pizza from oven. Using the back of a spoon, gently push sauce/cheese to outer edge forming an indentation.
5
Gently pour cracked egg in center of each pizza. Sprinkle evenly with Parmesan cheese. Return pizzas to oven and bake an additional 5 to 6 minutes or until crust is golden
6
If egg whites are not cooked, cover pizza and let sit an additional 3 to 5 minutes, or until desired doneness.
Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Cut each pizza into slices.
