We are loving the pizza right now, huh? It’s a quick dinner to pull together (as long as you remember to get the crust going early enough) and it’s always a crowd pleaser. I’ve been trying to make one once a week because it’s also an inexpensive meal, especially one like this where the main ingredients are eggs and a few slices of bacon.

I have always wanted to make a pizza with eggs on top but I was afraid of how my husband would react. He’s been happy with all of my pizza creations so far but eggs? On pizza? I thought that might just be too much for him.

He loved it. I loved it. My 3 year old specifically requested a piece with an egg and then tore it up. You could have knocked me over with a feather. Next time I will add more chives (there’s something you’ll never hear me say again) because the chives totally made the whole thing.
