A brilliant use for Bok Choy!

I had purchased baby bok choy at Trader Joe's last week.

My friend Lynn was raving about it, and I had every intention of making the recipe she had recommended.

I like to try new vegetables, new foods.  A recommendation by a friend is a great way to go.  Had she recommended fried scorpions I never would have tried it, but this just made sense.

I had to mention the scorpions; I am addicted to the show An Idiot Abroad.  Watch it.  It is brilliant!

Anyways, the only ingredient I seemed to have for Lynn's recipe was the bok choy.  I guess it will need to be tried another week.

So, yesterday I headed over to tastespotting.com.

I found this recipe.  It had everything I could ask for.  Pizza.  Bok choy. Eggs!  I had all the ingredients so it was a no brainer!

I made my own pizza crust.  I normally use Lynn's recipe for that as well, but was not sure how it would work without rising. I ended up with this recipe.  Lynn - will yours work without rising time as well?

I won't go thru all of the details, you can read those in the recipes.  I did make 2 changes; in with the bok choy I added some sliced leeks that I needed to use up. And with pizza I HAD to add the anchovies!

Here is the result:

The eggs were just past runny.  So good.

I have a similar piece ready for lunch tomorrow!

Work with me.  Make this.  Please!

Here are the stats, minus the leeks and the anchovies.  (The anchovies will increase your sodium count!)
