  • Preheat oven to 450˚F.
  • Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet set over medium-high heat.
  • Season the pork pieces with salt, black pepper, paprika, and cayenne pepper.
  • Add the pork pieces to the skillet and cook, stirring frequently, for about 4 to 5 minutes, or until just browned.
  • Stir in the garlic and cook for 15 seconds, or just until fragrant.
  • Remove skillet from heat and set aside.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out two pizza doughs into an oval, about 14 inches long; pull the dough's edges up, folding over and twisting the ends to form a boat shape.
  • Transfer the dough to previously prepared baking sheets.
  • Brush the edges of the dough with a bit of the whisked egg.
  • Brush the inside of the dough with butter.
  • Arrange the pork cubes on top of the dough.
  • Drizzle the top with a bit of olive oil.
  • Bake for 10 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and use the back of a spoon to make an indentation in the filling of the pizzas. Crack an egg into each indentation. I use one to two eggs per pizza.
  • Return to the oven and bake for 5 to 8 more minutes, or until eggs are set, but not overcooked, and crust is golden brown.
  • Remove from oven.
  • Garnish with parsley and pepper flakes.
  • Cut each pizza into 6 to 8 pieces and serve.
