Individual-size pizzas topped with sautéed spinach, cheese and an egg make a quick, easy meal when you start with store-bought pizza dough.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb pizza dough
  • 1 tablespoon cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup prepared pizza or marinara sauce
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 5 ounces baby spinach leaves
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, finely shredded
  • 4 small eggs

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F.
  2. Divide the pizza dough into 4 equal pieces and, on a lightly-floured surface, roll each to a 6-inch diameter round. Sprinkle a large baking sheet with cornmeal, arrange the rounds on top in a single layer and brush the edges with a bit of olive oil.
  3. Heat the remaining oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté until softened, 2 minutes. Add the garlic, sauté 1 minute additional, then add the spinach and cook until wilted. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. Spread 1 tablespoon of the prepared sauce on each of the dough rounds, and sprinkle them with a little of the grated cheese. Top each with some spinach and a portion of the remaining cheese. Form a small well in the center of toppings and crack an egg into it.
  5. Bake the pizzas for 8 to 12 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the eggs have set. Allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
