Welcome back to another Pizza Friday! This week we are sharing our favorite Shakshuka Pizza! This pizza recipe is simple to make, full of flavor, and super delicious! It’s also the perfect brunch pizza to share with others!

Shakshuka is traditionally served with grilled slices of bread that are dunked into the delicious sauce. Instead of dunking any bread, we decided to make a pizza, and wow, is it delicious!

What we love about this easy pizza recipe is the flavor. The pizza has a sweet, smoky, and semi-spicy tomato sauce with delicious feta and sunny-side eggs cooked right on top. It’s a delicious one, y’all, and it’s definitely a great pizza!

The ingredients to make this Shakshuka Pizza:

  • Pizza dough, homemade or store-bought
  • Campari Tomatoes – Instead of adding a can of diced tomatoes, we went with fresh tomatoes. While it does take a bit longer for the tomatoes to break down and for the sauce to thicken, it’s totally worth it.
  • Olive Oil or Avocado Oil
  • Sweet Peppers – We used orange and yellow sweet peppers because they are sweet in flavor and pairs nicely with the spices.
  • Leeks – We used leeks in this recipe because they have a nice texture and offer a sweet and mild oniony flavor.
  • Garlic
  • Spices: Cumin Powder, Cumin Seeds, Harissa Powder, Salt, and Black Pepper
  • Sugar – We only add 1/2 tsp of sugar here to help round the spices.
  • Feta
  • Eggs
  • Parsley
  • Hot Sauce – Optional, but we like to add a couple of drops of hot sauce on top before serving. It adds more heat and flavor with every bite!

The Step By Step:

Step 1: Chop up the sweet peppers, leeks, garlic, and tomatoes. To a medium pan over medium heat, add the oil and the leeks, sweet peppers, and garlic. Add the spices and sauté for about 10 minutes until the leeks are darker in color.

Step 2: Add the tomatoes and sugar and cook until the tomatoes break down and the sauce starts to thicken.

Step 3: Prep the pizza dough. Roll it out. Spread the tomato sauce mixture evenly on-top.

Step 4: Make 4 little “wells” in the sauce. Crack 1 egg into a small bowl and then carefully transfer the egg to one of the wells. If the egg yolk breaks, save it in the fridge for scrambled eggs later and try again with another egg.

Step 5: Generously sprinkle feta cheese evenly on top and season with a pinch of black pepper and salt.

Step 6: Bake at the highest temperature (500-550 degrees F); your oven can get for about 10 minutes, or until doneness. The eggs still want to be runny when you pull the pizza out. If you want a crisper crust, you may want to bake the pizza with the sauce first for about 5 minutes before adding the eggs and feta cheese.

Step 7: Add chopped parsley leaves on top before serving.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does this pizza take to make, start to finish?

Prep: 25 minutes to make the sauce and about 10 minutes to prep the ingredients and the pizza
Bake: The pizza takes about 10 minutes to make, depends on the size of the pizza dough. Reminder, the egg yolks should still be runny. If needed, bake the pizza with the sauce for about 5 minutes before adding the eggs and feta cheese.
Total: 45 minutes

How to store leftover pizza and reheat?


Store pizza in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave or on the stovetop until hot. We like to add olive oil to a pan and love how it crisps up the pizza crust. Goodbye to soggy leftover pizza dough.

Wine Pairing Ideas?


This pizza pairs best with a semi-dry to dry Riesling. The fruity aroma of Reisling pairs lovely with the smokey and semi-spicy tomato sauce. We selected an off-dry Riesling from a local winery in Ohio, Laurentia Winery. Super yum and crisp.

This Shakshuka Pizza recipe is really delicious and unique! It’s sweet, smoky, and semi-spicy and is the perfect Brunch pizza to enjoy with others! We hope you all enjoy it! ♡
