Recipe Box, Sunny Side Up Brunch Pizza

This tasty egg topped naan pizza makes a great brunch/lunch treat

Make it for 1 or for many!

You can assemble one in mere minutes

Naan bread, pesto, fresh asparagus, Gruyère cheese, pine nuts and an egg

Spread on a nice layer of pesto and top it with chopped asparagus and pine nuts

Put the cheese around the edges forming a ring to hold the egg in place

Transfer your pizza{s} to a foil lined baking sheet{s} before topping with egg

Break the egg into a bowl

Slowly pour/slip egg into the cheese ring

Carefully place pan in the oven and bake for 10 minutes.  Check for doneness and continue baking for several more minutes until the egg is set the way you like it

Some of the white may leak out onto the baking sheet, but it should stay in place for the most part

Season with salt and pepper and dig in!

    I’m not much for runny eggs, so I think I’d scramble mine on this delicious looking pizza.
