Description

Jazz up pizza night with this breakfast-inspired spinach, coconut bacon, and egg pizza! The eggs are cracked on top before baking and cook with the pizza.


Ingredients

For the coconut bacon:

  • 1½ cups unsweetened coconut chips
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon liquid smoke
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

For the spinach:

  • 5 ounce bag baby spinach leaves
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Dash of salt and ground black pepper

For the pizza:

  • 16 oz. refrigerated whole wheat pizza dough
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce
  • 8 ounce mozzarella ball
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup coconut bacon

Instructions

To make the coconut bacon:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, add all of the coconut chip ingredients and toss with a wooden spoon to coat evenly. Spread in a single layer on the baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 12-14 minutes , tossing halfway through, until golden brown. (Watch closely to the last few minutes so it doesn’t burn!) Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.

For the spinach:

  1. While the coconut bacon is cooking, heat olive oil in a non-stick skillet and add spinach. Cook for 1-2 minutes until some of the leaves start to wilt. Add in the garlic, salt, and pepper. Saute until spinach is completely wilted. Set aside.

For the pizza:

  1. Place dough on lightly floured countertop and roll out into a 12″-14″ disk. Transfer to pizza pan and bake for 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
  2. Spread 1/2 cup pizza sauce over the crust and layer mozzarella slices over top. Drop sauteed spinach evenly around the pizza. Crack 3 eggs on top. (You’ll want to crack them near the center of the pizza.)
  3. Bake pizza for another 25-30 minutes or until eggs are starting to firm. Sprinkle with coconut bacon and serve!
