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.

Donna Steinhorn said...

It's 10 PM as I read this, and I am seriously contemplating heading to the supermarket to pick up some leeks in order to make this! Ok..so perhaps it's a wee bit late...it will have to wait until the morning. I have a feeling I'll be dreaming in pizza tonight.

Baked Alaska said...

ooh, I'd love to win a copy of that cookbook. I just made pizza for dinner last night and lunch today-leeks, zucchini and goat cheese. Last time I made it I put potatoes on it. The addition of bacon would be wonderful.

I've got leeks galore from my CSA box and I've been trying to find out what to do with them. This will be perfect! Yum!

Leanne said...

All I can think of to say is YUM!! (O:

Di said...

Mmm. I'm going to have to try this one. I've never met a potato I didn't like, and I love leeks as well. But I wouldn't have thought to put them on pizza. Cool. I'm going to have to take a look at the cookbook, too.

Anna said...

I love both your blogs and I love contests. Hope I win :D

Christy said...

OH. MY. GOODNESS! This looks amazing. I am drooling! Must try this soon!

We love potatoes but have never had them on pizza. I can't wait to try this recipe...I am feeling hungry again just looking at the photos!

foodie ffanatic said...

When I saw the title of this post, my first thought was "but that's starch on starch" so I had to laugh to myself when you described your conversations with your father. It looks soooo good that I think I'll have to try it very soon. I would absolutely LOVE a copy of Ree's cookbook. I am more excited about the prospect of a cookbook from you! Thanks for a chance at the giveaway. Have a great trip.

Julie Anne said...

Ree's blog is always fun, but so is yours!

Oh that pizza looks so good!!! It's midnight and now because of this post I'm craving pizza big time... however i don't think the local pizza place have anything remote that good!!

I just love Ree and her blog! That pizza looks scrumptious!! Must try that recipe soon.

MaryAnn said...

Your photos have me salivating. I love your blog!

Looks so good, love the dark tones in the photos too.

doughmesstic said...

Hi Helen! Hope you are having a great time in Asheville. (as I feel sure you are!)
So, I just wanted to say that this post may have converted me. You may recall our tweets...about other bloggers...and now? Well, I can see that I may just have to put this one particualr issue aside. Such a warm post - so kind - and so, well, YOU!
As for potatoes on pizza, i have been doing that for YEARS. We had them on a pizza in DC over 15 years ago, and it's possibly my favorite topping now. Have you tried putting cooked rotini pasta on a pizza? Equally good.
Have fun gingerbreading!! - Susan aka DoughMessTic

Triss said...

Actually I found your blog through the Pioneer Women site. Great job, to the both of you.

P.S.
Stop. It. Your pictures are making me hungry ;) :)

Randi said...

that pizza looks AMAZING. i keep thinking - must make pizza at home, and then chickening out for some reason. with my new kitchen aid mixer, maybe i can get up the courage. :)

Angela said...

Irene said...

And I thought you only ate dessert, Helen! ;) Gorgeous photography on this post, even more gorgeous than usual (how is that possible...). I would love a copy of Ree's book. She's an inspiration.

Louise said...

I have been baking sweeties all afternoon. Successful lemon bars (a tweeked bakerella recipe) and a cinnamon walnut mudcake waiting to cool enough to slice. The raspberry red velvet cupcakes are 2nd rate though, but, on on! Time for savouries and this looks perfect for Sunday night dinner. Thanks!

Malia said...

Oh, I got leeks and potatoes at the farmers' market today, so will pick up some goat cheese tomorrow, and make this for friends coming over. Thanks, as always!

coriander said...

Looks delicious! I love potato on pizza, but hadn't thought of leeks. Leave it to PW, I guess!

Gretchen Noelle said...

Lovely photos and I enjoyed reading your post.

Wow, beautiful photography!

The Purple Foodie said...

I would have never thought of putting leeks and potato on a pizza. Your photos are amazing and I am off to buy some leeks in next few hours.

That is a very interesting pizza for sure! I have never had goat cheese so will have to try it soon.

I do not have Ree's cookbook yet and hopefully I can win one!

Alexandra said...

H.,

What a cool invitation--to capture and bottle the scent in that room!

I am enamored with the contrast of dark and light...it really brings out the rustic qualities of your pizza!

*ps I left a comment earlier today, and as i was printing out the recipe for the dough just now, i noticed my comment wasn't published. If this is a second comment, please do not disqualify me from your drawing. It may be an oversight on my part

Deborah Mele said...

I am thoroughly enjoying Ree's Tasty Kitchen site and would love a copy of her new cookbook. Was planning on buying it anyway once I returned to the US but winning a copy would be even better!

That pizza looks amazing. We will certainly give it a try in our pizza oven!

D. @ Outside Oslo said...

Your pizza photos are gorgeous. As I recently started a blog on Scandinavian food and culture, I recently discovered how tricky food photography really is. I wish my high school and college photography classes would have dealt with this very specialized form of photography!

Erika from The Pastry Chef At Home said...

Lovely photos - especially the flower sprinkled dough.

ps: those baby leeks do look a lot like scallions.

Sophie J said...

Leeks, cheese, and bacon? Ree? I'm in!

Melissa said...

Amazing! Your photos are beautiful and the pizza looks absolutely delicious! I've yet to try potatoes on a pizza.
I'm a PW fan too and would LOVE her book! Thanks for the opportunity! :-D

Christina said...

Yum! I have never thought to do the leek + potato combination on pizza (I make soup all the time) and I have a bunch of leeks to use right now from our weekly produce box. Thank you so much for sharing!

Vicki said...

Potatoes on pizza, who knew it could look so good?

Emily said...

I'm hungry now.
If the selection is random, I suppose I have just as much chance as anyone else...there are many posts.....it would be most lovely if I did win...oh joy!

You and Ree make quite a good combo. The two of you together might be dangerous.

I wouldn't mind having this pizza for breakfast! Thanks for posting such mouth-watering photos and recipes--I just started following your blog recently, and I must say it's very distracting at work. :)

Frenchie said...

I can't tell you how happy I am to see this recipe, although the whole double starch concept is strange for most people, I am totally accustomed. In Italy, this combination is very common, especially in the south. My summers have been powered by fluffy focaccias topped with slices of potatoes, woodsy rosemary and rich olive oil. There is nothing like it, but I have a feeling this recipe comes pretty close.

thebrunettebaker said...

Thanks to you & Ree for the giveaway! Her Cinnamon Rolls are so good as are the tutorials & pics.

PW and Tartelette all in one place = bliss.

My sister-in-law is an art student and she always peeks over my shoulder whenever I'm looking through your site to admire the pictures. Then we both stare at the food in awe and try to figure out a day to make the many recipes. I'm actually about to make your Mom Tupp Cake.

Would love to win PW's book before she comes to Atlanta in December. You are both great inspirations

I've been following Ree's blog since the beginning of the summer, and so far I've loved every recipe I've tried. I would absolutely adore a copy of her cookbook.
Also, your pizza photos are gorgeous. Makes me hungry just looking at them.

Shawn said...

This convinced me to have pizza for the 3rd day in a row- or at least use my dough to make little flatbreads with red onions and parmesan cheese. Was a great snack. Nearly put some leftover potato-leak soup on for the "sauce," but wasn't quite that brave. :)

Jenny Trotter said...

It's funny how things come full circle, because it was a link on The Pioneer Woman's website that somehow got me to yours several months back, and now I am currently planning a dinner party with a mixture of recipes from the two sites! 3 of your tarts, the acorn and butternut squash soup, and of course mountains of macarons, and from her site beef tenderloin, asparagus, and whisky glazed carrots (also for good measure, I'm including a Julia Child recipe, and one from a Williams Sonoma cookbook). I just love hodge podge dinner parties - melding French and Ranch food as it were.

By and by, I love your site. After much practice, I finally (for the most part) have the hang of making macarons and this weekend I am having my dearest girlfriend over to teach her how to make them! I had made a batch before for her and her husband, but since she didn't let him have any he has made her promise to learn how to make them so that they both can share in the enjoyment.

Enjoy the holidays!

Haha, I've never had potatoes on pizza, though my parents used to sometimes make pizza ON potatoes (was never a fan of that). I did put pasta on my pizza once...I'm a carb-lover too, can you tell? ;)

Josh said...

the last photo was the best. It's a shame I only occasionally click through to read the recipes on your blog. How often have I missed amazing photos? I won't be making that mistake again.
