   There are days when all I want is breakfast for dinner.  There are in fact many days.  A poached egg over quinoa, a side of scrambled with pita, kale, and hummus.  Need I go on?  When the weather starts to turn, I crave comfort foods, particularly carbs, and cheese…  A perfect storm for making a pizza pie! So about a week ago, I decided a pizza pie with an egg on it was on the menu for our Saturday night dinner.  I went to the meet market in search for guanciale, and came home with hot coppa.  I thought a little spice could be nice.  This pizza pie is sooo easy to make because there is no prep needed, except for the dough which you could buy.  I guess…


1 garlic clove
6 cherry tomatoes
a little bit of buffala
3 tbsp. cream cheese (I used cowgirl creamery)
5 slices of hot coppa (thin)
1 egg
olive oil
salt and pepper

1) Halve the tomatoes and mince the garlic.  Mix

2) Taste test.

3) Top the dough with tomatoes, cheese, and olive oil.
Bake about 4 minutes until the crust looks like it's more 
than half way done.  This really depends on how hot 
your oven gets.  Do less time if you're oven gets HOT!

4) Remove pie from the oven add meat, and one egg.
Put back in the oven for 3-4 minutes or until the egg 
turns a translucent white color.
Think over easy egg.

5) Remove from oven, smear egg yolk, season.
