Pizza with Eggs, Prosciutto, + Green Pesto

Pizza Dough

  • 250 g Strong White Flour
  • 1 Tsp. Dried Yeast
  • ½ Tsp. Salt
  • ½ Tbsp. Sugar
  • 20g Butter Melted
  • 180ml Water

Tomato Sauce

  • ½ Onion, Chopped Finely
  • 1 Clove of Garlic
  • 200ml Passata
  • Pinch of Salt
  • Pinch of Sugar
  • Pinch of Dried or Fresh Oregano

  • Splash of Oil, for Cooking


  • 300g Mozzarella Balls Cut Into Thin Slices, or Grated Mozzarella
  • 100g Green Pesto
  • 6 Eggs
  • 80g Prosciutto
  • Basil Leaves, to Garnish

Step 1: Dough

Add all the dry ingredients to a stand mixer and mix gently 30 seconds, add the melted butter and water mix until the dough comes together.

Step 2: Dough

Take it out of mixer and knead on a well-floured surface for 5 minutes, put it into a greased bowl and cover with cling film and place in the oven to prove at 40°c for 30 minutes. Take out the dough and knead again for 5 minutes and pop it back in the oven to prove for a further 20 minutes.

Step 3: Dough

Remove the proved dough from oven and divide in two. Raise the temperature of the oven to 250°c. Working with one piece of dough at a time (using a rolling pin) on a well-floured surface roll it out to your preferred thickness, place it on a on a baking tray lined with a floured baking parchment.

Step 4: Sauce

Heat a pan, add the oil and finely chopped onions and cook for 5 minutes over a low heat (do not brown). Add the garlic, cook for another minute, then add the passata, salt, sugar and herbs. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes so the volume is reduced by half and allow to cool before use.

Step 5: Toppings

Spoon over the tomato sauce and spread with the back of a spoon on each rolled pizza base, add the pieces of mozzarella and ham, then crack the eggs on the top spacing them out. Spoon over 50g of the pesto and cook for 12 to 15 minutes depending on your oven.

Step 6: Toppings

Remove the cooked pizzas, add the remaining 50g of pesto over the top and garnish with basil leaves, and you’re ready to eat!


You can use a bread maker to make the dough if you have one (just follow the manufacturer’s instructions!) + Any preferred ham works well too, and quail eggs can make a tasty alternative to hen’s eggs!
