You can also try using fresh dough. Look to your local pizzeria for homemade dough, as many will sell theirs for only a few dollars.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 450°.

Step 2

Unroll pizza dough on a baking sheet lightly coated with cooking spray; place in preheating oven. Bake as oven heats for 7 minutes.

Step 3

Combine the ricotta and 1/4 cup Romano. Remove pan from oven. Quickly spread cheese mixture over dough, leaving a 1/2-inch border around the edges. Return pan to oven, and bake for 5 minutes.

Step 4

While pizza bakes, add water to a large skillet, filling two-thirds full; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer. Add vinegar. Break each egg into a custard cup, and pour gently into pan. Cook 3 minutes or until desired degree of doneness. Carefully remove eggs from pan using a slotted spoon.

Step 5

Combine arugula, remaining 1/4 cup Romano cheese, and the next 4 ingredients (through salt) in a large bowl; toss well. Top pizza with arugula mixture and eggs; sprinkle with pepper. Cut into 6 pieces.

Outstanding. I added fresh sliced tomato, onion and garlic at the same time of adding the ricotta mixture. Also used spinach and arugula mix because that's what I could find. This was SO good.

Really lovely, light but filling take on pizza. Also quick and easy for a weeknight meal.

The Romano mixed in with the ricotta is the secret to this recipe's goodness. I'm not great at poaching eggs, so I gently fried them sunny-side up. I also used whole-wheat pizza dough from Trader Joe's. The result was fantastic, and very filling!

I really am on this huge kick with everything egg right now and this recipe is no exception. One of the best pizzas I've ever had in my life was from Da Buffeto in Italy and on top they place an egg in the middle with lots of veggies surrounding it. I've been looking for different variations ever since then and this is a great version to make at home! I already had a small home-made honey wheat crust prepared. I also used fat free ricotta and less oil. So very lovely though! Thank you cooking light.
