After discovering the naked pizza, I chopped some turkey pastrami and spread it over the pizza. Then I used a squeeze bottle of mustard to put some mustard squiggles over the pastrami.
I heated this in my convection oven for 18 minutes, set at 425 degrees.
You can use your regular oven for a little longer time if you set the heat at 400 degrees.
While this was going on I sliced the black olives and minced the garlic. I poured about a tablespoon of olive oil in my new nonstick green skillet like they advertise on television, which shows you can blow on a fried egg to get it to slide out of the skillet.
The minced garlic and black olive slices started simmering in the olive oil.
Then, I broke the eggs and dropped them over this. I decided not to try to blow the eggs out of the skillet, though, as I was afraid they might fly across the kitchen. I just gently tilted the skillet and let the eggs, garlic and olives slide about halfway out of the skillet over the pizza. Then, I tilted the skillet and folded the other half of the eggs over the top of the pizza. This turned out to be a tasty lunch. So, let this be a lesson for you: When things go wrong in the kitchen, just buy a convection oven, a green nonstick skillet you’ve seen on TV and throw some stuff together. Nine out of 10 doctors agree this will lower your blood pressure, add to your cholesterol and add years to your life.
