Breakfast Pizza for Father’s Day

Serves: 2 large pizzas
Cooking Time: 1 hour


  • 200g cake flour + extra, if needed
  • 5g instant dry yeast
  • 5ml (1 tsp) salt
  • 5ml (1 tsp) sugar
  • 125ml – 160ml water
  • 30ml (2 tbsp) tomato paste
  • 1 x 250g tub smooth cream cheese
  • 2 x 200g packets smoked trout ribbons
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 4 large eggs
  • 30ml (2 tbsp) spirit vinegar
  • 10 caperberries
  • Fresh dill, to garnish
  • Lemon wedges, to serve



Preheat the oven to 200°C. Sift the dry ingredients together, then stir in the water to form a dough. Knead for a few minutes, adding more flour and water as necessary. Place the dough in a large oiled bowl, cover with a tea towel and allow to rise in a warm place, 30 minutes.


Gently knead the dough again, divide into 2 balls and roll out into large rounds of your desired thickness. Top with the tomato paste, cream cheese, trout ribbons and salt and pepper, place in the oven and cook, 8 – 12 minutes.


Break 1 egg into a cup and set aside. Bring a large pot of water to a gentle simmer and add the vinegar. Vigorously stir the water in a circular motion to create a well in the centre. Pour the egg from the cup into the well in the water. Repeat this process with the remaining 3 eggs and poach each egg, one at a time, in the simmering water, 3 – 4 minutes for soft. Remove with a slotted spoon and place in a bowl of warm water to rinse off the vinegar, then drain on a paper towel.


Top the pizzas with caperberries and the poached eggs and serve garnished with fresh dill and a side of lemon wedges for squeezing.
