Za'atar and Egg Pizzette

These easy pizzettes were a nice departure from our run of the mill cheese pizzas.  Since I love a breakfast of pita bread and over easy eggs with a bit of za'atar sprinkled on them, this combination was a no-brainer.  I enjoyed this for a late lunch, but it would be great any time of day.  Give it a try!

Za'atar and Egg Pizzette

Pizza dough - see recipe here, or use your favorite recipe
1/2 cup za'atar spice mix
olive oil
kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper

Heat oven to 500°F.  Once your pizza dough has risen, cut off a handful of dough and set on a flour surface.  Use your hands to flatten the dough into a rustic circle shape and then transfer to a pizza pan.  I a small bowl mix a few tablespoons of za'atar with a tablespoon or two of olive oil.  Mix until a thick paste-like mixture forms.  Spread a few spoonfuls over the pizza dough.  Gently crack an egg over the center of the pizza.  Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and a few grinds of black pepper.  Repeat with remaining dough.  Bake for 8-12 minutes or until egg is set and crust is light brown.  Remove and let rest 5 minutes.

You can easily make breadsticks with any remaining dough by placing on a small pan.  Lightly pat out into a 1 inch thick rectangle.  Cover and leave in a warm place to rise for 30 minutes.  Drizzle with a bit of olive oil and generously dust with grated Parmesan cheese and a little salt.  Cut into 1 inch sticks.  Bake until lightly browned and then brush with melted butter.   Serve with warm marinara dipping sauce.
