 1 round of pizza dough
 6 tbsp Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil, divided
 4 large eggs
 ½ cup Colavita Crushed or Strained Tomatoes
 ½ red bell pepper, seeded and diced
 2 garlic cloves, crushed
 1 tsp ground cumin
 1 tsp sweet paprika
 Pinch of hot pepper flakes
 ½ cup feta cheese, crumbled
 ½ tsp salt and freshly ground black pepper
 Fresh cilantro or parsley for garnish
 Cast Iron Skillet
First Make the Sauce:

Heat 2 tbsp Colavita olive oil in a medium pot over medium-low heat.


Add the pepper and cook until soft, about 15 minutes.


Add the crushed garlic and sauté for 3 minutes.


Add the spices and stir to combine.


Pour in the Colavita tomatoes and season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; simmer until tomatoes have thickened, about 10 minutes.


Remove from heat and reserve for pizza. You can store any extra sauce in a container in the refrigerator for a week.


Heat your oven to 450°F.


While your oven is heating, place a cast iron skillet on your stove top. Pour in 4 tbsp of Colavita olive oil and get the skillet and oil nice and hot.


Stretch out your pizza dough to a size that will fit in your skillet and carefully place the dough in the hot skillet. It will sizzle and that is good! You want it to toast from the bottom.


Allow it to toast for a few minutes until golden brown. You can peek underneath using a metal spatula.


Add the crushed tomatoes all the way to the edge of the dough.


Make 4 small wells in the dough and tomatoes and crack the eggs into them.


Sprinkle the feta cheese on top.


Season with salt and pepper.


Place in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the egg whites are set but the yolks are still a little runny


Remove from the oven and garnish with fresh herbs.


Allow the pizza to rest for 5 minutes. Then remove it from the skillet and place it on a cutting board to serve!
