Gluten-Free Eggs alla Pizzaiola Recipe

There are some dishes that just scream “comfort” to me and this Gluten-Free Eggs alla Pizzaiola recipe is one of them.

Basically eggs in the style of pizza, this is a quick dish that can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner, is ready in no time, and, served with some gluten-free grilled bread or crunchy baguettes, is a pure joy to eat. And in case you were wondering (for a friend, of course!) it also happens to be a great hangover dish (New Year’s Day brunch, perhaps?). Maybe add a few dashes of gluten-free hot sauce on top.

I like to serve this right from the skillet, nothing fancy, nothing pretentious, just good old delicious food! And it totally handles any cravings I have for pizza in a more nutritious manner.

I used pastured eggs from Nature’s Yoke, San Marzano tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and fresh basil for this dish – a few ingredients of the highest quality. Perfection!

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small shallot , thinly sliced
  • Kosher or fine sea salt
  • 2 cloves garlic , thinly sliced
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 (28-ounce) can whole plum tomatoes
  • Black pepper
  • 1 bunch fresh basil , divided
  • 4 large pastured eggs
  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese , cut into small pieces


  • Heat the olive oil in a medium skillet with a lid over medium heat. Add the shallot and a small pinch of salt and cook until softened, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes and cook, stirring, for another 30 seconds. Add the tomatoes along their juices and cook, breaking them apart with a wooden spoon or spatula. Add about ½ teaspoon of pepper and tear in half the basil leaves and cook until the tomatoes break down and become jammy, about 8 minutes. Make 4 small wells in the tomatoes and crack an egg into each well. Season each egg with a little salt and pepper.
  • Scatter the mozzarella all around the dish, place the lid on the skillet and cook until the whites of the eggs are set, and the cheese is melting, about 10 minutes.
