One of my favorite quick meals is to hack a Trader Joe’s frozen Pizza Margherita. It’s a delicious, thin crust pizza that only takes about 10 minutes to cook. It also serves as a great “blank canvas” to use up leftovers. I had brussels sprouts, lemons and prosciutto on hand, so that’s what went on top. You can try this with spinach, arugula, leftover chicken or sausage – the possiblities are endless.
The lemon is what really makes this hack special. Be sure to cut the lemons as thin as possible – if they are too thick, they’ll be bitter. Skip the prosciutto and serve with a side salad and you have a great vegetarian meal!

Brussels Sprouts, Lemon and Egg Pizza Margherita
1 Trader Joe’s Pizza Margherita
1/2 lemon, sliced very thinly then halved, seeds removed
1 cup shaved brussels sprouts
1-2 tbsp olive oil
chili flakes (optional)
sea salt and freshly ground pepper
4-5 slices of prosciutto (optional)
Preheat oven to 425F. Remove pizza from packaging and set aside.
In a small bowl, toss brussels sprouts with olive oil, chili flakes, sea salt and pepper to taste. Spread evenly over the top of the pizza. Place lemon slices on top.
Bake for 8 minutes. Remove from oven and move the brussels sprouts and lemons toward the edges of the pizza to make room for the egg. Crack egg into the center and cook an additional 7-10 minutes, until egg is cooked as desired.
Remove from the oven and top with prosciutto if desired.
