Pizzeria Paradiso Inspired Egg Pizza

Did you ever get back from a vacation still talking about something delicious you ate?  This just happened to us.  We went on a short weekend vacation to Washington, DC (read all about it here) where we met up with our son, Joe and daughter-in-law, Nicole.  While we were there we ate some delicious pizza at Pizzeria Paradiso.  When Joe and Nicole came to NC to visit us we started talking about the good time we had in DC and about how we were all still thinking about the pizza we had there.  Well one thing led to the other and before we knew it we were piling into the car to pick up ingredients to make the egg pizza we enjoyed so much.  We were not trying to replicate the pizza because it was beyond anything we could do, but we took inspiration from it and came up with this recipe.  The egg pizza we had at Pizzeria Paradiso was called Bottarga and the ingredients listed for it were Paradiso tomato sauce, minced garlic, parsley, grana padano (a cheese similar to parmigiano reggiano, egg and bottarga (salted, cured fish roe).

  

We substituted grana podano with freshly grated parmigiano reggiano and the bottarga with chopped anchovy.  We used store bought pizza dough as a substitute for their fresh made.

PIZZERIA PARADISO INSPIRED EGG PIZZA

Ingredients

3/4 cup Rita's Wooden Spoon marinara sauce
1/2 lb. sliced mozzerella 
1/2 cup finely grated parmigiano reggiano
4 garlic cloves minced
1 2oz. can anchovy chopped
2 tbs. fresh parsley 
6 eggs
pizza dough

Directions

Heat outdoor grill to 400 degrees.
After pizza dough reaches room temperature stretch until it gets to your desired thickness.  Top with sauce, garlic, anchovy, mozzerella and parmigiano reggiano.  Bake in outdoor grill until the cheese is almost melted.  Top pizza with eggs and return to grill and bake until cheese is completely melted. Eggs will be runny.  If you like a more cooked egg you can top your pizza with them sooner.  Sprinkle cooked pizza with fresh parsley.
(If you are cooking your pizza in your oven, bake your shaped pizza dough about 8 minutes before topping it.)

Enjoy!
