Total Time

30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1pound prepared pizza dough, preferably whole-wheat
  • 2strips bacon
  • 3/4cup sliced shallots
  • 1pound asparagus, trimmed, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 4large eggs
  • 1/4teaspoon salt
  • 1/4teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1cup shredded extra-sharp Cheddar

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 500°F. Coat a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface to about the size of the baking sheet. Transfer to the baking sheet. Bake until crisped on the bottom, about 8 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, cook bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until crisp. Drain on a paper towel. Add shallots to the pan and cook, stirring often, until beginning to brown, about 2 minutes. Add asparagus and cook, stirring, until beginning to soften, 2 to 3 minutes more.
  4. Spread the vegetables over the crust and crumble bacon on top. Whisk eggs, salt and pepper in a medium bowl until combined; slowly pour over the vegetables, trying not to let any run off the crust. Sprinkle the pizza with cheese. Bake until the eggs are set and the cheese is melted, 8 to 10 minutes.

Tips

Some prepared dough “resists” being stretched. If your dough is too springy, let it rest for about 15 minutes, then try rolling it out again.
