It’s been much too long since we’ve had a pizza recipe on this site. Weeks! I hope that you’ve been carrying on with your weekly homemade pizza night–do you have one of those? If not, do you have another special meal that you serve on a regular basis?
Whether homemade pizza is an occasional or regular indulgence for you, here’s a recent favorite of mine. Roasty-toasty broccoli, creamy-salty feta, perfect saucy egg on top. You might have to work on the timing to get your egg cooked perfectly to your liking, but in my setup (long-preheated 550 oven, hot pizza stone, thin homemade crust) the egg is still just perfectly runny at the moment that my crust crisps up, after about 5 minutes in the oven. Now that’s good fast food.

Roasted Broccoli Pizza with Feta Cheese and Eggs: Preheat your oven as hot as it goes. Thinly stretch a homemade or store-bought crust. Brush on a thin layer of olive oil and sprinkle lightly with mozzarella cheese. Top with piles of roasted broccoli (toss in olive oil and salt; roast at 450, stirring occasionally, until crispy in spots) and big chunks of feta, then nestle some fresh eggs down into little nests in the broccoli. Bake for 4-5 minutes on a hot pizza stone, or a bit longer on a hot cookie sheet, until the crust begins to brown underneath and the eggs are cooked to your liking. Serve with a salad, of course, maybe this one with lemon vinaigrette or this one with smoked salmon and creme fraiche dressing?
