Mathiew Palombino, Motorino, Brooklyn
1 handful grated Parmesan or Gruyère cheese
1 slice leftover pizza
2 slices bacon
1 large egg
Extra-virgin olive oil for drizzling
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Sprinkle the Parmesan or Gruyère — or any real cheese you have — on a slice of leftover pizza. Place the pizza on a baking sheet or aluminum foil and put it in the oven for a few minutes, until the cheese starts to bubble.
Meanwhile, sauté the bacon in a pan over medium heat. When done, remove, crumble, and reserve the bacon. Drain the excess fat from the pan, but don’t wipe it down. Crack the egg into the same pan and cook sunny-side up. Top the pizza with the bacon, then the egg. Drizzle with high-quality olive oil.
