Bacon & Egg Pizza

I found this recipe at Blake Makes.
Bridget had blogged about this recipe and I thought it sounded fabulous! It really was just as fabulous as it sounded. I never would have thought I'd like this combination on a pizza (I don't even really like bacon) but it really works!
Ready-made pizza crust (I like Boboli because it’s cheap, keeps awhile in the pantry and tastes good.)
Marinara sauce
Mozzarella (I used a combo of leftover bagged cheese and deli smoked mozzarella- the smoked cheese added tons of flavor, so I would definitely mix this in again.)
3 strips bacon (I used 5 strips)
I used 2 medium eggs, but would use 3 medium or 2 jumbo next time Handful chopped Fresh flat-leaf parsley (I omitted this because I didn't have it, but wish I did)
Salt and pepper
Grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 500 degrees.
Cook bacon, crumble and put to the side. Spread thin layer of marinara over crust, and add a few handfuls of mozzarella. Bake pizza on the rack for about 4 minutes. Pull out oven rack, and make sure it’s level. Crack egg in center of pizza and add a little salt to yolk. Push oven rack back in, turn on broiler and bake for an additional 5-6 minutes, until yolk has thickened but is not hard (sunny-side up). Add bacon, parsley, grated Parmesan and black pepper to taste.

This is so cool! I love that you loved it. I keep telling Bridget that she needs to write a cookbook, because she can do wonders with a Boboli pizza crust. Thanks for reading! Thanks for cooking! bk
