California Lavash, a small, family-owned producer we love here at Sun Basket, developed a thick flatbread especially for making pizza. It holds its own as a vehicle for our housemade pizza sauce and cheese blend. If you’ve never tried adding a fried egg to your pizza, get ready—it adds a savory dimension to the familiar taste. Get the kids involved with prep: in addition to a kids favorite kitchen task (layering the pizza!), the butter lettuce is a cool ingredient to pull apart and spin.

Ingredients

  • 3 ounces baby spinach
  • 2 pieces Sangak lavash
  • Sun Basket pizza sauce (tomatoes - olive oil - tomato paste - salt)
  • 2 cups shredded Italian cheese blend (mozzarella - provolone)
  • Fresh chives
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 head butter lettuce
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • 4 pasture-raised organic eggs
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan

Instructions

1

Assemble the pizzas

Heat the oven to 400°F.
In a medium bowl, combine the spinach and 1 tablespoon oil. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat.
On a sheet pan, place the lavash side by side. Spoon on the pizza sauce in an even layer, leaving a 1/2-inch border around the edges. Top with the mozzarella-provolone blend and three-fourths of the spinach (set aside one-fourth for garnish).

2

Bake the pizzas

Bake until the crust is crisp, the cheese is melted, and the spinach is wilted, 12 to 15 minutes. While the pizzas cook, prepare the dressing and lettuce and fry the eggs.

3

Make the dressing; prep the lettuce

  • Finely chop the chives.
  • Juice the lemon.
  • Trim off the root end from the butter lettuce; coarsely chop or tear the leaves.
In a small bowl, stir together the chives, 2 teaspoons lemon juice, buttermilk, and 1 tablespoon oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Set the dressing aside.

4

Cook the eggs

In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons butter or oil until hot but not smoking. Crack the eggs directly into the pan and season with salt and pepper. Cook until the whites have set and the yolks are slightly runny, 2 to 3 minutes. If you prefer firmer yolks, cook for 1 to 2 minutes longer. Transfer the eggs directly to the pizzas, if the pizzas are done baking, or to a plate to rest.

5

Finish the pizzas and salad

Transfer the pizzas to a cutting board and place 2 fried eggs on top of each. Garnish with the remaining spinach and sprinkle with the Parmesan. Cut the pizzas into squares.
In a large bowl, toss together the lettuce and as much buttermilk dressing as you like.

6

Serve

Transfer the pizza squares to individual plates and serve the salad on the side.
