Huevos Rancheros Pizza

Wow. Today I took my sister’s advice and made a pizza on the grill. I had seen a post last week from Smitten Kitchen where she made a breakfast pizza. I was totally inspired but wanted to change it up a bit so we took a Southwestern spin on it. I don’t know if I will ever bake a pizza in the oven again. The grill gave it a delicious, smoky flavor and made the crust crispier than oven could ever pretend to do. The toppings didn’t quite have enough time to firm up on the grill so I popped it in the oven at the end to finish it off. Amazing.


1/2 ball store bought pizza dough

3/4 cup salsa

1/2 large onion – diced

1 roma tomato – thinly sliced

5 large eggs

1/2 cup black beans

1 cup cheddar

1/4 cup green onion – chopped


  1. Pre-heat grill on medium-low and preheat oven to 350
  2. Roll out dough on a floured surface until about 1/4″ thick
  3. Brush top with olive oil
  4. Place on hot grill face down
  5. When bubbles start to form on the top, carefully pick it up and turn it over
  6. Apply your toppings quickly. Start with the salsa and layer it up from there. Just break eggs over pizza.
  7. Once the bottom is nice and toasty you will probably need to bake it in the oven for about 10 minutes more until the eggs are cooked and the cheese melted
  8. Remove from oven, add green onion, slice and enjoy

Cindy - Yum o. What kid of pizza dough do you use? I have only ever used the pre baked boboli and the ever delicous poppin fresh pilsbury… but looking for something more rustic tasting. Suggestions?

crissie - Hey Cin, I use dough that they sell at Winco. It is made fresh there. I did hear that some pizza restaurants sell fresh dough as well.

Chilla - Looks like eggs never cooked! Cook the eggs for a short time then place them on and cook with everything else for a better finish. Light pepper and cooked green chilies with chorizo would be a great addition. Great looking photo.
