I apologize up front for the sub par photography here. I assume that the bulk of the better food bloggers make dishes specifically for their blogs and spend some time lighting the food beautifully & taking their time to get it right. That isn’t what I do. I do not have the luxury of making food solely for this blog. The vast majority of what I post here are my actual meals. I make myself dinner, I try to photograph it really quickly before it gets cold and then I eat it. Sometimes this works beautifully. Other times, like last night, the dish doesn’t lend itself to sitting out for long & retaining anything resembling a pleasing aesthetic and some things – like runny yolks – are just plain gross to eat cold. So – I post this dish because it was delicious but, again, I apologize for the less than perfect imagery.
Also frustrating are my ongoing efforts & repeated failures in trying to get a gorgeous photo of food with gooey yolk. Some people out there really have this down. I do not. But I will keep trying!
Not Just For Breakfast Pizza with Kale, Hominy & Egg
Pizza dough – mine is HERE
1 bunch kale
1 onion – diced
6 garlic cloves (or to taste) – chopped
Grated cheese of your choice
Hominy – about 1/4 cup or so
1 TBS crushed red pepper
1 (or more) egg
Heat your oven to 450-500 degrees.
Remove the ribs from the kale & throw them away & chop up the leaves.
Heat about 1 TBS olive oil on a saute pan. Saute the onion & crushed red pepper a minute or two. Then add the garlic & kale. Saute about 5 minutes or until the kale is wilted.
Roll out the dough. Place it on a greased pizza pan. Top with the kale & the hominy & grated cheese. Bake for about 10 minutes or until it looks just about done.
In the last two minutes – crack an egg in the center (or several – if you like) and bake a minute or two or until the egg whites look about cooked through. You can err on the side of under-cooking the egg because it will continue to cook when the pizza is being cut up. Fresh cracked pepper might be a nice finish! Slice it up & chow down!
