Potato Leek Pizza and A Giveaway

Potato - Leek Pizza

When I ask my father what vegetables he wants with dinner, his response is often "potatoes" to which I reply "Dad! We already have a starch. What vegetable would you like?" He then looks me with an obvious smirk and repeats "potatoes". I am very much my father's daughter in that regard. Love them. And noodles. I hope I never have to chose between the two. As much as I am a potato gal, I never thought of putting them on pizza, until last week that is. This Potato-Leek Pizza from The Pioneer Woman has surely changed my mind. "More!" I say!

I remember very distincly the first post I read on Ree's site. I was on the phone with a friend back home who wanted to know how to make cinnamon rolls. We may have many a delicious pastry back home but I think we sorely miss out in the cinnamon rolls department. As a very occasional baker, she needed visuals. I searched step-by-steps online and stumbled on Ree's site. Bingo! My friend had an official teacher, willing to take her by the hand through the whole process. I had found a treasure trove of All American classics that my husband grew up on. He never says so but it's good to split my cooking between my French and his American. Makes for a fun relationship. Much like potatoes and pizza actually.

Ree lives on a ranch in the middle of vast great lands. I live in a house on stilts in the middle of marsh land. She has four 2-legged offsprings, I have two 4-legged companions. She married a cowboy who herds cows for a living. I married a man of the last frontier, history teaching. In her cooking, Ree makes do of what is available in her neck of the woods. I had to learn quickly what is Lowcountry cooking. Her cookbook is #1 in the New York Times Best Sellers list. Mine is still being edited (more on that later, promise) See...completely the same. Ahah!

Pizza Ingredients
Don't these fancy baby leeks look like glorified green onions?

I don't know Ree. Sure I have met her at BlogHer Food in San Francisco and exchanged a few words but that's about it. Yet, and I don't know how she does it, she is one of the most kind hearted ladies, taking time in her incredibly busy schedule and many roles to make you feel like what you say did not get lost in the big emptiness of the internet. I can guess it has got to be mind boggling for her how life has changed for her family in the last few years. It would make people feel uneasy, others would get the big head. Yet, Ree remains her natural, super nice, dorky self. I do need to say that she made me blush bright red when she put me in the same sentence a Matt Armendariz at BlogHer. Ugh!

Ree's cookbook reads like a novel. There is food and there is life on the ranch, life with the kids, daily thoughts and aspirations. The one most excited about getting the book was my husband however. He can relate to the recipes, they were part of his mom's stapples. He thought that whereas I fought the generation gap with his mother and the can of Ro-Tel, I would relate to Ree's fresh approach to life and cooking as she was trying to adapt to her new territory. He was right. Copies of my mother-in-law's Little League cookbooks are collecting dust but The Pioneer Woman Cooks is being earmarked by the both of us. He seldoms cooks so he loves the step by step pictures while I skip those for the stories. I like stories.

Ree's book does not need another review, yet I can tell you that B. is extremely excited to eat "Pioneer Woman" this weekend while I am away. I have been invited by the great folks of The Grove Park Inn in Asheville to be a judge in their annual National Gingerbread House Competition. I am not only extremely honored but thrilled to be in a group comprising Colette Peters and Chef Lodge to name a couple. I thought that B. would be able to accompany me but he's stuck with gigs this weekend. Instead, gal pal Tami from Running With Tweezers is coming up from Atlanta to share some of the fun and mountain air. In preparation of the trip, I made a few things that Bill loved and that he could easily reheat at night. One of them was this potato-leek pizza except it was devoured the moment it came out of the oven (well, after a few pictures).

Potato - Leek Pizza

I felt a bit pioneer-ish shopping for the ingredients when the only leeks I could find were fancy baby ones (did not have time to get to another store). Despite the double price tag, they looked a lot like green onions to me and I think I even aggravated the store clerck when I said so. I hate to aggravate them because they do order fancy stuff for me when I ask them. They are indeed green onions and they did taste like leeks however so all's well. The combination of potatoes, leeks, bacon ang goat cheese made me think of Frenchified loaded American baked potatoes meeting their Italian cousin on a bed of mozarella and tender pizza crust. Awesome...and I am packing two slices for the road.

I hate to tell you I'm going to frolic in gingerbread goodness in a paradise like retreat while some of you have to work, play hard or are stuck sick at home. That's why I am psyched that Ree generously offered to giveaway THREE copies of her book to three readers. If you want a chance to win, here is what to do:
- leave a comment on this post
- ONE entry per person - if you don't see your comment right away, give me a few hours before re-posting as I have the moderator on.
- Enter until Wednesday November 18th at midnight, US eastern time.

Have a great weekend!

Potato - Leek Pizza


Potato Leek Pizza, with permission of Ree Drummond:

6 slices thick bacon, cut into 1-in pieces
3 leeks, sliced thinly
Extra virgin olive oil
5 small red or Yukon Gold potatoes, sliced paper thin
16 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced thinly
4 oz crumbled goat cheese (I used twice that much:))
Parmesan cheese, grated
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Unbaked pizza crust

Preheat oven to 500 degrees
Begin by frying bacon pieces in a skillet over medium heat until cooked but not crisp. Remove bacon from pan and pour off most of the grease. Set bacon aside.
Return skillet to stove and turn heat to medium-low.
Slice leeks very thinly. A sharp knife helps.
Add leeks to the same pan and sauté over medium-low heat until soft, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
Using a sharp knife or mandoline, slice potatoes very thin.
Prepare pizza crust according to directions, and drizzle lightly with olive oil. Sprinkle lightly with salt. Arrange potatoes in a single layer all over crust, slightly overlapping edges. Sprinkle potatoes lightly with salt, then lay mozzarella slices in a single layer over the top of the potatoes.
Place sautéed leeks over the top of the cheese.
Next, sprinkle the fried bacon pieces over the top, followed by a generous addition of crumbled goat cheese.
Finally, sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper.
Bake pizza for 8 to 11 minutes, or until edges of crust are golden brown and cheese is melted and bubbly. Cut into wedges or squares and serve immediately.

Pizza Crust
Makes two pizza crusts
1 ½ cups warm water
1 teaspoon active dry yeast
4 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
Extra olive oil for drizzling

Pour warm water into a mixing bowl. Sprinkle yeast over the water.
Stir together flour, olive oil, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Add water/yeast mixture and stir together until just combined. Dough will be very sticky.
Drizzle a little olive oil into a clean mixing bowl. Toss the ball of dough in the bowl and turn over to coat in oil. Cover bowl and place in a warm place for 1 to 2 hours, or cover in plastic wrap and store in the fridge for up to 2 days.

Natashya KitchenPuppies said...

What a great looking pizza! I agree, carbs are the perfect complement to carbs!
So wonderful of you to help promote Ree's book - it sounds like a real treasure!

Liz said...

I've never thought of potatoes and pizza - it sounds good!

Ree was right, your pictures are beautiful. Will you be posting some of your weekend? It sounds like it will be a great time! We used to make gingerbread houses every year, but it's been awhile...

Katherine said...

Looks delicious! I have potatoes and leeks fresh from the garden, and some goat cheese sitting in the fridge... maybe I can find another substitute for the bacon, so I won't have to go to the store! (chicken? chicken sausage?)

Aubrey said...

Pick me!

Deb Pullen said...

Ree will be impressed with your photographs. Love your site & recipes

cocoamango said...

You've reinvigorated my love of cooking! I just wish I had a more elaborately stocked kitchen than my current college situation allows. :)

I love your pictures on this post. They are fabulous.

Gayla said...

Looks like something great to try!

wendycothompson@aol.com said...

What a great site -- your's and Ree Drummond's! I discovered her last Sunday and have been busy following her all week. I'm looking forward to getting to know you better as well!

I'm a former northerner turned southerner and now mountain-mama (I hate that name) I lived in the Carolinas for many years and know the Grove Park Inn, Biltmore House and Asheville well. I miss the beach (okay, I really really miss fresh fish and don't even go on about shrimp!) and ocean but love living at 8500 feet above sea level in the beautiful rocky mountains of Colorado. Cooking and baking at this altitude can be a challenge but as my passion is cooking (and eating it too) I vow to never give up trying!

I hope you have a fabulous time this weekend. Ginger break -- yum!

Elizabeth Wise said...

YUMMY!!! sure wish I wasn't trying to lose weight!

Annie said...

Hello Helen,
I enjoy your blog so so much! In fact, I made the chocolate cake from your Chocolate Espresso Mouse cakes this past week. I don't have espresso powder, so I made some fresh espresso and substituted it for most of the water. Don't know if it's the same as your result, but it tasted wonderful and my family and guests love it! Thank you for the recipe. :)

This pizza looks wonderful too. I make a lot of Ree's recipes and am stuck in the same quandary of having limited access to some ingredients, as I live on a very small ranch in the middle of an island that caters mostly to tourists, so our grocer doesn't care a wide array of ingredients. You're very right about Ree's recipes being straightforward and delicious!

lil miss dissertation said...

i love it when people we respect and admire are humble, funny, and dorky -- just like their fans. :) btw, the colors on your pizza shots are incredible!

Jean Badgley said...

Can't wait until your book is out too! thanks for the giveaway...

Kayvie said...

This looks like a wonderful book! I am writing from Oxford in England so I fear that I may not be considered for the competition. Nevertheless, this is a good opportunity to tell you that I am a great fan of your blog and find your food and photography very inspiring! It's wonderful to know that there are so many readers with equally great taste (couldn't resist the pun). Anyways, would love the book! Take care.

Rochelle said...

Can't wait to try to Potato Leek Pizza tomorrow - it looks fabulous!

I discovered The Pioneer Woman through the cinnamon rolls too. I'd lost my mom's recipe and it did the job perfectly!

Trissa said...

That pizza looks amazing! I'm always looking for new recipes to try--hopefully quick and easy and not the same old, same old. And I'm so extremely visual (not a very good cook yet) that I'm just going to have to check Ree's blog from now on...but I sure would like a book too! Hope I win! Thanks for offering this give a way!

Jessica said...

I didn't realize she had a book. I've stopped by her blog a few times and have always been enamored!

FreshAdriaticFish said...

I really liked this sentence form your post: "Ree remains her natural, super nice, dorky self." I think that is the best recommendation for the cookbook author! Loved to get the book!

Anastasia said...

I love the gingerbread competition in Asheville! And I love the Grove Park Inn. I even got to stay there one time when my mom was in town for a business trip- AND she took me to the spa.

The only thing almost as good as the spa is a copy of Ree's book :)

Dafna said...

I <3 pioneer woman. Also that pizza looks amazing.

dawt said...

I have never considered using some of these ingredients in this way, but mmmm...it looks like it would taste absolutely deee-luscious!

Kati W said...

I love thin-crust potato pizza with rosemary so I will give this recipe a try.
It's interesting that you are such a gifted visual artist yet prefer the stories. But the personal stories, insights, and anecdotes are what make cooking blogs so much more compelling than recipe and photo collections. I'm guessing that food blog writers, as a result, make the most engaging cookbook authors. I imagine (hope) that your cookbook will also include stories!
By the way, I read your post on Jaden Hair's cookbook. You must try the refreshing Vietnamese Summer Rolls!

Mary Beth said...

I try and make this pizza all the time. Your photos are so beautiful. Really. I use a black background for some of my pictures and they are too dark. I will keep trying! Thanks for the book giveaway!

Mama Bear said...

Pizza looks amazing. I wish I had "smell-o-vision" on my computer! Thanks for sharing!

That looks so.freaking.good....the PW cookbook is on my Xmas list but it'd sure be fantastic to win it!

Rebecca said...

When I was 12, I stayed for a few days at the home of family friends. On the evening of the 2nd day, the mother called my mother and said, "Please tell me what I can cook that she'll eat. So far, all that she's eaten since she's been here is potatoes."

Also, the first time I moved away from home, I proudly called my mother and told her of the bargain I'd gotten on a 20 pound bag of potatoes. She was appalled. TWENTY pounds? She laughed. "You'll never be able to eat 20 lbs of potatoes before they go bad." Well, there were 2 of us, although my roomie wasn't a real big eater either. But we did it.

And yet...I never thought of them on pizza.

And if I had, I'd never have pictured such a dish looking so gorgeous.

Wow. Great job, both the cooking and the camera work.

annie said...

Helene,

It's funny, but when I was looking at your photos I was thinking... "Huh, maybe I don't know what a leek looks like after all, since I've never actually cooked with them." : ) Glad to hear you thought they steered you towards green onions too. LOL
This looks positively delicious. Wish I had a couple slices right now.

That pizza is making me drool. Potatoes and leeks in any way shape or form are my comfort food...

Must. Make. Tonight.

Looks like a homemade pizza and beer night! My husband and I have started doing this every Friday, and it's a great tradition. I also love potatoes on pizza. I first had potatoes on pizza in Italy and thought it was going to be so strange, but it's actually remarkably good! Hoping to get a chance at one of those Pioneer Woman books...

Silvia said...

Ree rocks! She is right up there with you and Jen :) I swear I can smell the bacon..sigh...Fab pictures!

Sallie said...

I really, really want to win this cookbook. I read The Pioneer Woman Cooks often and I am ALWAYS amazed by her! She is an incredible cook, mother, wife and at home school teacher. How does she do it?

Those baby leeks DO look like green onions! Maybe they were still in costume from Halloween. lol

Your photography is simply amazing. So beautiful. And, the Pioneer Woman's cookbook looks awesome. :-)

YUM! That looks mouth watering. :) I have her book on my amazon wish list for Christmas but would love to have it sooner. ;)

I wouldn't think to double up on starches either, but this looks delish!

Messy Kitchen, Frazzled Cook said...

I too love all things starchy; pasta, bread, potatoes...num num. This looks like a real winner, and yet satisfying.

Oh! I wish I knew about the gingerbread house competition earlier- I don't live too far from Asheville but I promised my hubby we could hang out at the house tomorrow since we went to Charlotte today....And gosh do I love gingerbread houses! I hope you post some beautiful pics of them!

That looks like a very interesting pizza. I'm sure it tastes as good as it looks, hope to try it out in the future =D.

Rachael, Pistachio Press said...

Yum, yum, yum! I've been making lots of pizza lately and this looks delicious. I'll skip the bacon since we don't eat meat, but I'm most certainly going to be making this recipe for dinner this week.

And the step-by-step photos are genius! Thank you.
