This Shakshuka Pizza recipe is simple to make, full of flavor, and super delicious! It’s also the perfect brunch pizza to share with others!


  • 1 lb Pizza dough, homemade or store-bought
  • 10 Campari Tomatoes, quarted
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil or Avocado Oil
  • 3 Sweet Peppers, diced
  • 2 Leeks, diced (white and green parts), about 1/2 cup
  • 2 Garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp Cumin Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin Seeds
  • 1 tsp Harissa Powder
  • 1/2 Salt, plus a pinch
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper, plus a pinch
  • 1/2 tsp Sugar
  • 1/3 cup Feta, crumbled
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1/4 cup Parsley, coarsely chopped
  • Hot Sauce (optional) – to serve 


  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.
  2. Add the tomatoes and sugar and cook until the tomatoes break down and the sauce starts to thicken. About 10-15 minutes.
  3. Prep the pizza dough. Roll it out. Spread the tomato sauce mixture evenly on top.
  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.
  5. Generously sprinkle feta cheese evenly on top and season with a pinch of black pepper and salt.
  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.
  7. Remove pizza from the oven and add chopped parsley leaves on top before serving.  Serve with a few drops of hot sauce on top (optional).


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.

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.
