Croque Madame Mini Pizzas

 16 oz fresh pizza dough (you can use store bought), or frozen, but thawed
 4 tbsp butter
 4 tbsp flour
 ⅔ cup whole milk
 1 cup gruyere cheese, grated
 4 pieces prosciutto
 4 eggs
 2 tbsp Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil
 Salt and pepper
 ¼ tsp freshly ground nutmeg
 Chopped, fresh parsley for garnish
 Optional: 1 egg yolk beaten with 1 tbsp water and coarse salt as a finish for the pizza dough.

Heat your oven to 450°F.


Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and oil it lightly with some Colavita Olive Oil.


Separate the pizza dough into 4 equal pieces and stretch each piece out into a small disc, about 5” in diameter.


Place the dough rounds on the prepared baking sheet.

Make the Bechamel:

Melt the butter in a small pot over medium-low heat. Add the flour and whisk until it is completely combined and forms a paste.


Add the milk and whisk until smooth and thickened (the sauce should coat the back of a spoon).


Season with a pinch of salt and pepper and freshly ground nutmeg. Set aside.


Place about ¼ cup grated gruyere cheese on top of each pizza dough round.


Place one piece of prosciutto on top of the cheese.


Spoon the Bechamel sauce over the prosciutto.


Optional: Brush the outer edges of the pizza dough with the egg and water wash. Sprinkle the coarse salt on top of the wash.


Bake in the oven for 10 minutes, until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is bubbling.


Remove from the oven and set aside.

Meanwhile, fry the eggs:

Heat a sauté pan over medium heat. Add 1 tbsp Colavita Olive Oil to the hot pan.


Crack an egg into the pan and cook until desired level of doneness is achieved. We like our yolks a little runny.


Remove to a plate and repeat with the rest of the eggs.


Place each cooked egg on top of one of the pizzas.


Drizzle with a little Colavita Olive Oil, and sprinkle with salt, pepper and chopped, fresh parsley.


Serve immediately.
