Traditional Egg gondola or Adjarian Khachapuri is a delicious breakfast pizza from Georgia. And one of my family’s favorites. It’s easy and simple to make, and it’s so tasty. This specific kind of khachapuri has a unique shape, looks like a boat filled with gooey cheese filling, baked, then topped with butter and egg, at preference. You can also add ham, bacon or tomatoes as toppings.

  • In a small bowl, add warm water, sugar, and yeast. Give it a quick stir and set aside for 10 min or until it develops foam on top.

  • Place it in a greased bowl, cover it with plastic wrap, and let it rest for about 1 hour or double in size.
  • Meanwhile, combine all the ingredients for the cheese filling and mix until well incorporated.
  • Preheat your oven to 475 degrees F.
  • Divide the dough into two portions. Roll out into approx. 10x8 inch rectangle shape.
  • Fold the sides, pinch the edges, and shape it into a boat/ gondola.
  • Fill with the cheese mixture and bake on a lined baking sheet 15-20 minutes
  • After 15 minutes of baking, or as it starts to turn a golden color, add an egg in the center
  • Return to the oven for another 4-5 minutes or until the eggs are cooked
  • Remove from oven, brush the sides with butter, or add a slice of butter in the center, mix with a fork and enjoy!
