Ingredients

  • 2 organic apple chicken sausage links cooked
  • 2 whole scallions
  • 1 batch uncooked whole wheat pizza dough homemade or from the store
  • 1 Tbs Olive Oil
  • 1/4 cup Cornmeal
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups of shredded white cheese we used a Gruyere-Mozzarella blend
  • Dried Basil Red Pepper Flakes, and Ground Black Pepper, to taste

Instructions

  • Slice chicken sausage into rounds and cut up your scallions (the green and the white parts). Place in a bowl and set aside.
  • On a clean surface, spread out cornmeal then place pizza dough on top. Roll out dough to desired consistency. Transfer dough to a greased cookie sheet then drizzle the top of the dough with olive oil. Using a paper towel, rub oil evenly over crust.
  • Heat grill on medium-high heat. Flip crust onto grill so that the olive-oil side is down. Close the lid and let cook about 1 minute, or until there are just slight grill marks on the bottom.
  • Flip crust and quickly crack 4 eggs over the crust – try to spread them out so each piece gets a bite of egg. Cover and allow to cook 3-5 minutes, or until the eggs are almost set.
  • Once eggs are nearly set, cover pizza with cheese, sausage, scallions, and seasonings. Cover once more and cook 1-2 minutes, or until the cheese has melted.
  • Remove pizza from grill, slice and serve. Enjoy!
