At first, we were like pizza with a poached egg? Yuck, and then we tried it and, hell yeah, this is utterly delicious-oso!!!

What are we talking about…the Grilled Shakshuka Pizza?

If not, we will enlighten the heck out of you with this sumptuous filling dish.

Grilled Shakshuka Pizza is a traditional North African dish in which whole eggs are poached in a chili pepper-laced, chunky tomato sauce. This style of pizza is popular throughout the Middle East and has recently surged in popularity here in the U.S.

It is a combination of a few items that we are sure you already have in your kitchen – like paprika-spiced, one-pan tomato and eggs – It’s a perfect Sunday brunch dish with friends while drinking Cranberry Orange Mimosa Bellini’s.

How Do You Make Grilled Shakshuka Pizza?

Here’s how to do it: NOTE For this recipe, we recommend to use two cans of Muir Glen organic diced tomatoes.

Begin with really good pizza dough! Our best trick for making pizza at home is to buy the dough from your favorite neighborhood pizza place. Most pizzerias will gladly sell you a round of raw pizza dough. While the grill warms up, roll out the pizza dough. Or, if you have little kitchen helpers, let them do it!, Next, brush olive oil on both the pizza dough and your grill grates so that the dough doesn’t stick.


2 tablespoon olive oil, plus more
1 sweet onion, sliced
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1 clove garlic, sliced
1-pint grape tomatoes
1/2 cup crushed tomatoes
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


2 tablespoons flour
12 ounces pizza dough
1 teaspoon ras el hanout (optional)


4 large eggs
1½ cups ricotta cheese
Parsley, chopped

😎 hey there shakshuka pizza! . What’s your favorite pizza topping(s)!? I’m all about the non-traditional toppings🙌🏼🙌🏼 this was my first time cracking an egg onto pizza!! To make this pizza, I took some @muirglen pizza sauce and spiked it with a bit of cumin and harissa paste. Toppings included mozzarella, feta, eggs, and a parsley shower after coming out of the oven. And my go-to pizza dough is the no-knead method by Jim Lahey. Seriously the best and easiest dough, if you haven’t made this version, you must do it soon!! . Hope you guys are having a great Friday! We are en route to Moab for the weekend☺️ we enjoyed this pizza last night (forgot to post it!) and I made a second one with pesto, roasted red peppers, ricotta & mozzarella for the road. Leftover pizza may be the best car snack, ever. Happy weekend! ✌🏼 #f52eggontop

For the sauce:

Add the oil to a large, non-stick skillet and set over medium heat. Add onion and sauté until translucent about 3 minutes. Add paprika, cayenne and cumin. Stir to combine and cook for 1 minute until fragrant. Add garlic and cook for 1 more minute. Add the fresh and crushed tomatoes and simmer for about 10 minutes until tomato skins pop, juices release and the sauce starts to thicken. Add salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat and set aside.

For the dough:

1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a medium-size baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to approximately 1/4-inch thickness.

3. Place the rolled dough on the prepared baking sheet.

4. Rub the dough with olive oil and sprinkle with ras el hanout, if using.

5. Bake for 10 minutes. The crust should look golden when done.

For the pizza:

1. Place sauce in the middle and spread evenly leaving about a 1-inch crust around the edge.

2. Make 4 indents in the sauce and crack the eggs into to them. Sprinkle eggs with salt and pepper.

3. Add teaspoonfuls of the ricotta over the sauce.

4. Bake for about 10 minutes or until the whites of the eggs are set.

5. Garnish with parsley and serve.
