Delicious Homemade Brunch Pizza With Prosecco
Tis the season to brunch it up – Easter, Mother's Day and not t0o far off in the distance, Father's day. By simply using store-bought pizza dough to pair with fresh, spring ingredients, you can create a delicious rustic pizza at home that will taste better than anything from a high-end pizzeria. Serve this brunch pie with a glass of crisp, wallet-friendly sparkling wine and watch your guests savor each and every bite!
- 1 pre-made whole wheat pizza dough
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
- 1 large yellow onion, sliced into thin rings
- 1 cup of radicchio, cut into ribbons
- 1 cup of ricotta
- 6-8 thin slices tomato
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup loosely packed arugula
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Crushed red pepper (optional)
Start by caramelizing your onions. This can be done in advance and simply requires adding the thin onion rings to olive oil that has been heated over medium in a saucepan. Slowly heat and stir occasionally until the onions soften and take on a golden brown hue. Remove from heat and set aside.
Preheat oven to 450° and lightly flour a work surface. Spread the dough, tossing and rotating until 1/4" thick and round or oblong in shape. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and spread over the top of the dough completely.
Sprinkle with the onions and radicchio, then place in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, rotating halfway through.
Remove from oven, lightly spread ricotta and top with the tomatoes.
Return the pizza to the baking rack and crack the eggs right on top of the pizza. Set the oven to a high broil and keep an eye on the eggs, rotating the pizza for 5-6 minutes until the whites are cooked and the yolk is done to your liking. I prefer a runny, warm yolk center.
Remove from the oven and top with salt, pepper and optional crushed red pepper for an added kick.
Pass individual slices with olive oil, allowing guests to drizzle on more as desired.
I promise that this will not only be your go-to pizza for brunch, it will also occasionally make the dinner table!
