The crust for this delicious breakfast pizza is made of eggs and coconut flour and is more like a crepe than a traditional pizza base.

Ingredients

  • 2 medium leeks
  • 2 thyme sprigs
  • 4 bacon strips
  • ¼ teaspoons red-pepper flakes
  • 5 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour - sifted
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Pinch freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 thyme sprigs
  • 4 bacon strips
  • ¼ teaspoons red-pepper flakes
  • 5 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour - sifted
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Pinch freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

1

Cook the bacon and leeks

Heat the oven to 350°F.
  • Slice the leeks in half lengthwise, and then cut into half moons.
  • Strip the thyme leaves from the stems and chop the leaves.
In a frying pan over medium heat, cook the bacon until the fat has rendered and the bacon is crisp, 5 to 7 minutes.
Transfer the bacon to a paper-toweled-lined plate to cool, but leave the bacon grease in the pan. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Add the leeks, thyme, and red pepper flakes, to the pan and season with salt, and cook until the leeks are tender and just beginning to caramelize, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to the plate with the bacon.

2

Make the pizza crust

In a mixing bowl, whisk together 2 eggs and 1 egg white until opaque and fluffy. Sift in the coconut flour and salt, and whisk until smooth.
In the same pan over medium heat, warm 1 tablespoon oil until hot but now smoking. Pour the batter into the pan. Cover and cook until bubbles start to appear on top of the batter, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until set, 1 to 2 minutes.

3

Assemble the pizza

Once the bacon has cooled, chop into bite-sized pieces. Scatter the leeks and bacon over the pizza crust. Crack the remaining 2 eggs directly on top of the crust and transfer the pan to the oven. Cook until the whites are set but the yolks are still runny, 5 to 7 minutes.

4

Serve

Carefully remove the pan from the oven. Season with salt and pepper, slice, and serve.
