Ingredients

  • Oat flour, for dusting surface
  • ½ recipe Double-Duty Dough
  • 4 tsp sesame seeds
  • ½ cup whole-milk Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp Everyday Pesto
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup baby spinach or kale
  • 1 small avocado

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Lightly dust a surface with flour; turn dough out. Divide dough into 4 even pieces. Roll each piece into a 12-inch-long rope. Sprinkle seeds over dough and roll lightly to integrate seeds.
  2. Transfer ropes to prepared sheet. Attach the ends of each rope to form a circle. Bake for 8 minutes, until firm to the touch and just starting to brown.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare yogurt-pesto swirl: In a small bowl, stir together yogurt and pesto.
  4. When ready to serve: Preheat oven to 400°F. Place prebaked dough on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Crack 1 egg into the center of each hole.
  5. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until egg is set. Set aside for 2 to 3 minutes before serving. Serve with a dollop of yogurt-pesto swirl, a sprinkle of greens and avocado slices.

MAKE AHEAD: Make recipe through Step 3 up to 4 days in advance. Let cool and store in an airtight container in the fridge. Store yogurt-pesto mixture in a separate airtight container.
