  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) whole plum tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 loaf (1 pound) frozen pizza dough, thawed
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 400°. In a large saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook and stir until tender, 4-5 minutes. Add cinnamon, paprika, cumin, garlic and cayenne; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in tomatoes, hot sauce, salt and pepper; cook and stir over medium heat until thickened, about 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, grease a 12-in. pizza pan. Roll dough to fit pan. Pinch edge to form a rim. Bake until edge is lightly browned, 10-12 minutes.
  3. Spread crust with tomato mixture. Using a spoon, make 6 indentations in tomato mixture; carefully break 1 egg into each. Sprinkle with feta. Bake until egg whites are completely set and yolks begin to thicken but are not hard, 12-15 minutes.
