Almost Paleo Pizzas

I'm getting over a case of overdosing on spinach lately.  It was showing up in my protein shakes...lunches...dinners.  The accountant went to Costco and got a 6 lb. bag (I should've specified the 3 lb. organic brand) so it's been an intense week of greens.

I had seen Trader Joe's making a mushroom pizza on their website and decided to give this a try.

Almost Paleo Pizza
serves 1 or 2 as an appetizer
2 portabella mushroom caps, gills removed/de-stemmed.
1 Tablespoon of pesto
1 Tablespoon of sun dried tomatoes in oil
1 oz of fresh mozzarella
2 eggs
spinach (1/2 cup chopped)

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.  On a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil, lay mushrooms stem side up.
Smear pesto and tomatoes on mushroom caps.  Crack an egg and slip it into the 'bowl' sunny side up (yea, you can scramble it if that's your thing too).  Top with cheese and spinach and bake for 35 minutes.
