Pizza With Eggs, Roasted Red Peppers, & Arugula

“A delicious and inventive twist on pizza from "Bon Appétit Magazine" (January 2009). This combination of flavours really works! Start making the dough one day in advance; it needs to be refrigerated overnight (and can be made up to 2 days ahead of time). If you don't like runny eggs, add them to the pizza a little earlier. Also, be sure to crack the eggs into the onion rings so they stay contained.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. For dough: Pour 2 tablespoons warm water into large bowl of stand mixer fitted with dough hook; sprinkle yeast over. Let stand until yeast dissolves, about 15 minutes (mixture will not be foamy). Add both flours, 1/2 cup cool water, and 1 teaspoon coarse salt; mix on medium-low speed 4 minutes. Let rest 5 minutes, then mix on medium speed until dough is smooth, elastic, and slightly sticky, about 3 minutes.
  2. Lightly oil medium bowl. Gather dough into ball and transfer to prepared bowl; turn to coat with oil. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let rest at room temperature 30 minutes. Chill dough overnight.
  3. Transfer bowl to warm draft-free area and let dough rise, covered, until very slightly puffy, at least 2 hours.
  4. For topping: Place pizza stone or rimless baking sheet in oven; preheat to 500°F Sprinkle pizza paddle or another baking sheet generously with cornmeal. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface to 12-inch round; transfer to paddle. Brush dough with oil; scatter peppers, then olives over. Sprinkle with Parmesan and rosemary. Arrange onion rings atop pizza, spacing apart.
  5. Slide pizza onto stone or baking sheet in oven; bake until lightly browned but not crisp, about 7 minutes. Remove pizza from oven and gently crack 1 egg into each onion ring. Return pizza to oven and continue to bake until eggs are softly set and crust is golden, about 6 minutes. Sprinkle pizza with salt and pepper. Scatter arugula over.
