Chourico and Egg Flat Bread
When you take one bite of this flat bread you’ll taste the delicious savory flavor of the chourico and eggs breakfast that you enjoy on weekend mornings!
This flat bread is my husbands new favorite! He loves everything with chourico and, he’s also is a pizzaholic so its a perfect combination for his taste buds. He did request more eggs on top the next time I make it! Now he wants me to make a flat bread out of his other favorite dish, Carne Alentejana! I better get experimenting. Enjoy!

1/2 to 1 whole chourico or linguisa sausage cut into spices
eggs (as many as you want for topping pizza)
1 small onion (thinly sliced)
1 clove garlic (finely minced)
1 or more cups shredded cheese (any favorite)
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
2 teaspoons olive oil
Fresh cracked pepper
1/4 cup Shredded Parmesan cheese
Flour and course corn meal for dusting pan
Preheat oven to 425 F.
Spread out pizza dough into a thin desired shape on a cookie sheet that has been dusted with flour an a little course corn meal.
In a small skillet add one teaspoon of olive oil and saute the onions and garlic for about 2 minutes on medium heat.
Add the sliced chourico and let brown for a few minutes. Set aside to cool.
When dough is cool, spread the chourico evenly on the dough. Sprinkle with the basil and the shredded cheeses.
Break the eggs gently and place evenly spaced on top. Drizzle the remaining olive oil over the eggs and chourico.
Top with fresh cracked pepper. Cook for about 15-20 minutes until the dough is golden brown.
