Ingredients
  • 2 large black olives
  • 1 orange bell pepper
  • 1 tube pizza dough or homemade pizza dough
  • 8 Eggland's Best Large Eggs
  • 3 tablespoons half-and-half
  • pinch of salt
  • optional pepper
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 cup pizza sauce
  • 3 slices ham or bacon cut into small pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Instructions
  1. Cut black olives in half, discarding the two halves with the big hole in the middle.
  2. Cut the orange pepper into one beak and two feet for the chick pizza.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  4. Line a baking pan with non-stick tin foil or parchment paper.
  5. Unroll pizza dough onto the pan.
  6. Cut out two 1/2 inch strips from one long edge of the dough.
  7. Then cut a large egg shape from the dough, using a parchment paper template if needed.
  8. Separate one egg and brush some of the egg white over the egg shaped pizza dough.
  9. Discard remaining egg white.
  10. Line the edge of the egg shaped dough with the two strips of dough, cutting off the excess.
  11. Bake for 8-10 minutes until golden brown.
  12. Meanwhile, combine the remaining 7 eggs and 1 egg yolk with the half-and-half, salt, and pepper, if using.
  13. Put butter in a 10 or 12 inch non-stick skillet and set over medium high heat.
  14. As the butter begins to melt, swirl it around the bottom of the pan.
  15. Once the butter has completely melted, add the eggs.
  16. Use a rubber spatula to continuously scrape the bottom and sides of the pan until the eggs begin to clump together.
  17. Once the eggs are cooked about half way, turn the heat down to low and continue to fold the eggs until clumped and slightly wet.
  18. Remove from heat. Do not overcook the eggs.
  19. Take pizza crust from oven and top with pizza sauce, ham, and shredded cheese.
  20. Pop back in the oven for 3-4 minutes until the cheese melts.
  21. Break up the scrambled eggs into small pieces.
  22. Spread the eggs over the pizza and pop in the oven for 2-3 minutes just until heated through.
  23. Move the pizza to a cutting board or serving platter, add the olive eyes, the orange pepper beak and feet and serve.
