A PW Recipe Revisited (Potatoes+Pizza)

If you don't already know, my husband has Ree Drummond to thank for my love of cooking. When we first got married I did not think I would ever truly love cooking, but then one fateful day I ran across the Pioneer Woman and her amazing blog. My life was forever changed.

So the other day I pulled out a Pioneer Woman recipe that I made around this time a few years ago. I remember absolutely loving her Potato Leek Pizza so I decided to make it again. I loved it so much I had even dedicated a post on how to make it here. Well looking back, I realized that the first time I made it, I used the WRONG part of the leek in the recipe. Oops. You'd think that me using the wrong part of vegetable might affect the taste, but it was still freaking good and I didn't know any better. This time around I used the base of the leek and it was so much better!

My cooking really has come a long way. Sorry to any of you who followed my directions on that post and used the top of the leek. Who knew? (Obviously I didn't) Haha. Here is how the pizza is supposed to be constructed...

 Potato Leek Pizza Recipe Revisited
Here is what you will need:
-Pizza dough
-5 small red or Yukon potatoes
-4 oz. Goat Cheese
-6 slices of thick Bacon cut into 1 inch pieces
-1 pound Mozzerella Cheese
-3 Leeks (using only the base, not the top leafy part)
-Extra Virgin Olive Oil
-Ground Pepper/Salt 

Lay out your pizza dough and preheat the oven according to the dough you choose and lightly coat dough with olive oil

Place bacon in skillet over medium heat. Fry until cooked, but not crisp then remove from pan 

Use the same skillet after draining grease to saute the leeks (set bacon and leeks aside.) This is the part I totally butchered last time so make sure you use the base of the leek, it should resemble the texture of an onion and should actually saute unlike the top leafy part. 

Thinly slice potatoes and layer around pizza in a single layer
Sprinkle potatoes lightly with salt then layer mozzarella on top of the potatoes
Place leeks on top of cheese then add bacon
Add crumbled goat cheese and ground pepper
Bake according to pizza instructions (at least 8-12 minutes) and chow down!

That looks amazing! I only used leaks for the first time this month, and also recently discovered that this root thing that comes with soup-veggies is a celery root. Who would've thought? :)

That looks sooo good! I don't even know what a leek looks like haha. Do the potatoes fully cook while it's baking?

Stephanie F said...

Wow!! That looks so good. I love leeks too...

I keep seeing potatoes on pizzas and I'm so intrigued by the idea. Potatoe? Good. Pizza? Good. It has to work!

I'll try this out. And I wouldn't have know what part of the leek to use either.

I've used the wrong part of green onions (thrown out the white instead of keeping the most flavorful part) and fennel. I didn't know any better either, but I'm glad I've figured it out since. It's all trial and error I guess. I really wanna try this pizza! Potatoes and bread!

So I find this kind of hilarious because it's totally something I would do. In fact, I was really confused about the different types of sausages early in my cooking days. Kielbasa sausage is the same as ground Italian sausage, right? ...... Not even close, haha!
