Grilled pizza with egg, arugula, and balsamic for #SundaySupper

Who’s ready to fire up the grill? It’s the time of the year when everyone tries to avoid heating up the house by using the oven. At least, I know that is true for our household! The temperatures in Florida are hot enough; using the oven definitely affects the overall temperature in our home. No-bake recipes are certainly a life saver for the summer months!

Grilled pizza with egg arugula and balsamic
The folks at Davidson’s Safest Choice eggs challenged the Sunday Supper crew to create some amazing no-bake recipes. A plethora of dessert options went though my mind, but I decided to take a savory route instead to indulge some of my latest food obsessions: pizza…eggs…arugula…balsamic. I mean, you really can’t go wrong with all of those items! In pizza form, they’re heavenly.

Grilled pizza with egg arugula and balsamic

Of course, I have had an obsession with grilled pizza for quite some time now. I love the crisp crust and the added flavor from the grill that is infused into the dish. There are so many topping ideas possible, but have you ever had a pizza with an egg on top? If you have not enjoyed the amazingness yet, you need to add it to your foodie bucket list as soon as possible. When you break through the yolk in the egg and dip your crust into it, get yourself ready for a flavor explosion of awesome proportions. The first time I enjoyed an egg on a pizza, I was immediately hooked. So, it just seemed natural to make a grilled pizza for this challenge.

I have to admit: I am usually very cautious when it comes to eggs. I always want to make sure they are cooked properly! As much as I adore a runny yolk, I sometimes err too much on the side of caution and have been known to overcook them on occasion. However – Safest Choice™ Pasteurized Eggs are safe to eat RAW! The pasteurization process makes them edible in uncooked form, which I think is really cool. AND it makes me even happier when it comes to cracking an egg on my pizza. Oh runny yolk, how I love you…

So tell me: have you enjoyed an egg on one of your pizzas? What did you think?

Grilled pizza with egg arugula and balsamic
Grilled pizza with egg, arugula, and balsamic
  • Pizza dough (I separated my dough into two smaller rounds)
  • 5-6 tbsp marinara or pizza sauce
  • 6 oz fresh mozzarella, sliced (more if desired)
  • 2 eggs - Davidson’s Safest Choice recommended
  • 2 oz arugula
  • 2 tbsp balsamic glaze
  1. Heat grill to around 500° F. As it is heating up, stretch/roll the pizza doughs to about ¼ inch thick rounds. I like to roll my dough with a sprinkle of cornmeal on the working surface! Place on a baking sheet or other surface to transfer to the grill.
  2. When the pizza dough is rolled out, carefully slide it directly on to the grill grates (you can spray the grates with a bit of nonstick cooking spray if desired). Close the grill lid and let the dough cook for about 5-6 minutes, until the bottom of the crusts are golden and some char lines can be seen. Transfer the crusts back to your baking sheet, but flip the pizza crust so the bottom that was touching the grates is now facing up.
  3. On the turned over pizza crusts, lightly spread the marinara sauce, then top with the sliced mozzarella. However, leave a circular opening/well in the center of the pizza; this will be for the egg to sit in! When this is complete, transfer the pizza back on to the grill. Crack an egg in the center of each pizza, then close the grill lid and cook for an additional 4 minutes, until the egg whites are no longer clear and cheese is bubbly.
  4. Remove cooked pizza from the grill and on to a baking sheet. Sprinkle with arugula leaves and drizzle with balsamic glaze. Slice into pieces, top with parmesan cheese, and enjoy! Don't forget to dip your crust in the amazing egg yolk either!
