Ingredients (Serves 6)
250g/9oz mixed-grain bread mix
2 tbsp tomato purée
2 tomatoes, sliced
3 flat mushrooms, wiped, peeled and sliced
75g/3oz Cheddar cheese, grated
4 medium eggs
2 slices smoked back bacon or ham, chopped
Prepare the bread mix according to the packet instructions, then knead into a smooth dough. Allow to rest for 5 minutes then knead again and roll out to a 28cm/11½in circle. Place on a lightly greased baking tray, cover with clingfilm, then leave in a warm place for 30-40 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 200°C, 400°F, Gas 6. Spread the tomato purée over the pizza base. Top with the sliced tomatoes, mushrooms and grated cheese, then make 4 wells in the topping using the back of a spoon and crack an egg into each.
Finally, scatter over the bacon and bake in the oven for 20 minutes, until golden. Cut into wedges and serve.
