Ingredients

¼ cup finely sliced roasted red capsicum

Method

ZUCCHINI PIZZA BASE
  1. Preheat oven to 200°C/180°C (fan-forced) and line a pizza tray with baking paper.
  2. Squeeze grated zucchini to remove as much moisture as possible. Toss into a bowl along with parmesan, flour, herbs and egg. Mix well.
  3. Spoon zucchini mixture onto prepared baking tray to form a 25-30cm round or oval base, approx. 1cm thick. Bake 20 minutes or until golden.
TO ASSEMBLE
  1. Using a potato peeler, slice asparagus lengthways into thin slices.
  2. Spoon pizza sauce over pizza crust and arrange asparagus, chicken, capsicum and bocconcini over the top, leaving space for 3 eggs. Spray with cooking spray.
  3. Crack eggs into each space and bake 10-12 minutes or until egg whites are set and yolks still creamy. Stand 5 minutes. Garnish with basil leaves and serve warm.

Notes

**Remove chicken for vegetarian option
