I don’t think I’ve ever met a pizza I didn’t like.  And so, when I stumbled across this recipe (adapted from an article in Shape Magazine), I couldn’t resist trying it – even though it was a little bit our of my comfort zone.  Luckily, the recipe used a mock hollandaise sauce, so there was no need for the usual undercooked egg mess that has occurred on my previous attempts to make the real thing.  I’m all for substitutions that make for an easier, yet still delicious meal.

I was a little nervous at first…eggs on pizza?!? Just doesn’t sound quite right.  But, it ended up being delicious!  It was so easy to make, I can’t wait to try it again!
