Shakshuka Breakfast Pizza

Are you a pizza lover like me? I think I could eat pizza every day and not get tired of it. And now with my new creation, the Shakshuka Breakfast Pizza, I can have it for breakfast too! Woohoo!

Green Giant Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Since the beginning of the year, my husband and I have been on a low carb diet so pizza was a definite no-no. However, when I found that Green Giant was selling a cauliflower pizza crust in Publix I was all over it. It seemed my fervent wishes had finally come true – I can have pizza on a low carb diet!

Green Giant Cauliflower Pizza Crust in Publix

The Green Giant Cauliflower Pizza Crust is made of over 80% cauliflower and has no artificial flavors or preservatives. It has 50% fewer calories than a regular crust and can be found in the frozen section of the grocery store, either near the frozen pizzas or by the Green Giant vegetables. Now how convenient is that! I keep a couple in my freezer for when the pizza craving strikes.

Pizza for breakfast? Sure thing!

Now most people don’t think of pizza for breakfast but, with the right sauce and ingredients, it’s like a breakfast you can hold in your hand. And it’s quick and easy too, taking just a little over 30 minutes from start to finish.

Ever hear of shakshuka?

The shakshuka dish is originally believed to be of Tunisian or Yemini origin, and is basically poached eggs in a spiced tomato, onion & pepper sauce. It seemed like the perfect idea to adapt to top this pizza.

Shakshuka Breakfast Pizza sauce cooking

The shakshuka sauce can be made while the pizza crust is heating in the oven and can be topped with your favorite breakfast meat or meat alternative and your favorite cheese. Typically, feta is used but I used mozzarella instead (after all, it is pizza). I also tried it with a combination of cheeses, including feta and it was super delicious. So, in other words, whatever floats your boat.

  1. Take pizza crust out of oven and spread a thin layer of sauce over crust. I like to make the 4 wells for the eggs now.
  2. Sprinkle cheese on top of sauce, building up a little edge around where eggs will be.
  3. Crack a small egg into each of the wells, trying not to break the yolk.
  4. Add sausage on top.
  5. Return pizza to oven and bake an addition 8-9 minutes or until cheese is bubbly, whites of the eggs are cooked and yolks are still soft.
