Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon Red Star Yeast Platinum dry yeast
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons warm water
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour plus extra for dusting your work surface
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 1 tablespoon cornmeal
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced cooked breakfast sausage
  • 1 cup grated Gruyere cheese
  • 3/4 cup grated Fontina cheese
  • 2 large eggs
  • Fresh cilantro

Instructions

  • Mix the yeast with the water in the bowl of a stand mixer and let sit for 5 minutes.
  • Add the flour and salt and mix with a dough hook attachment until all of the dough comes together in a ball.
  • Continue to mix for about 5 minutes on low speed.
  • Wipe the inside of a bowl with 1 tablespoon of olive oil.
  • Take the dough and roughly form it into a ball placing it into the oiled bowl.
  • Cover with a towel and let the dough rise for about 1 hour or until almost doubled in size.
  • After the dough has risen, transfer it to a floured work surface and punch the air out of it.
  • Roll the dough into a circle or rectangle shape depending on your baking stone or tray.
  • Sprinkle the cornmeal onto your pizza peel and transfer the dough on top of it.
  • Cover the dough again and let rest for another 30 minutes.
  • Preheat your grill to it's highest heat with the pizza stone *see notes*
  • Drizzle the remaining olive oil all over the pizza and scatter the sausage slices onto the pizza.
  • Cover with the grated cheese and place onto your stone.
  • Cook for about 4-5 minutes until the cheese starts to melt and the edges of the dough start to puff up.
  • Crack two eggs on top of the pizza and close the grill.
  • Bake the pizza for another 4-5 minutes or until the cheese is bubbling and golden and the eggs have firm whites and a soft yolk.
  • Take the pizza from the grill stone and garnish with some chopped cilantro.
  • Slice into wedges and serve at once.

Notes

If you don't have a grill or a pizza baking stone, you can use your oven and a regular baking tray. Make sure your oven is at the highest heat it can go to, usually around 500-550 degrees.
