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.

Engineer Baker said...

When we make holiday dinners, my dad understands - everything is negotiable, *except* for mashed potatoes. They're a requirement. But then again, I'm a starch / carb gal all the way :) Lucky you to judge the gingerbread competition - can't wait to see pictures from Tami and you!

This evening my husband and I enjoyed Ree's White Chicken Enchiladas. Yummy! A wonderful mix of creamy and spicy. I was turned on to Pioneer Woman by a friend recently and it is now included in my regular blog reading along with Tartelette and David Lebovitz. All of whom, in my opinion, are the very best. I love the beauty in the pictures, the stories behind the receipes and the ability to bring to life what makes me salivate on my laptop keyboard. I am looking forward to the season of feasting and the fun that can be had in the kitchen.
BYOF!
(bring your own fork)

Time to delve into your world.

I LOVE potato pizzas! Ever since grad school when I first tried one (mashed potato. Who knew it could be so good?!).
I'd love a copy of this cookbook! I've been seeing posts of recipes from it, and I was coping, until I saw this picture. And now? Now I'm drooling.

My boyfriends the same way! Potatoes = vegetables, even if it is starch.

Mona said...

I found your website from ree's site and I must admit your photos are equally beautiful. i had a quick scan of your recipes and i'm feeling soooo happy right now because I've found another wonderful site. What amazes me is that you women are so kind hearted and generous to each other...in our dog eat dog world...both your sites would mean competition and both you women might want to compete eith each other. But here I see you ladies look beyond competition, having genuine appreciation for each other, linking to each other's blogs...and therefore creating a win-win for all of us, your readers. god bless!

And yeah....the pizza looks amazing..I'm gonna try it soon.

Then this morning I saw this beautiful post of Potato-Leek Pizza and thought now this is what I wanted. It always amazes me how there are so many wonderful creative people who share their lovely recipes, ideas, and stories. Thank you so much.

Wow, this is a beautiful pizza. I bet it would be good as an appetizer for a cocktail party.

I wonder what sweet potatoes would taste like on pizza --now you have me thinking!

Carol in NC said...

Hope you had fun at the Grove Park. We live just outside of Asheville now, but did live only a couple of blocks away and would often walk over to sit in the rockers by the (very large!) fireplace. Can't wait to see this year's gingerbread houses. It's always a holiday highlight! I saw a picture of the winner this morning in the local newspaper and all I could think was, 'Wow. How did she make that?!' Good job judges! (love Ree's blog by the way...)

Cee said...

Huge fans of the PW here! Mostly I just look at the pictures and *think* about making the recipe, but I am definitely trying several of her recipes this upcoming week!

Richard said...

Now that it's getting cooler here in Los Angeles, what a perfect recipe to bring back the memories of my grandparents farm in Mishawaka, Indiana! Not sure if my grandparents ever knew a leek, but potatoes....oh, the chore if digging them up, tossing onto the flatbed and hauling to the back porch for an afternoon of scrubbing the dirt off!

My grandma would slice and sautee with fresh slab bacon and lot's of pepper...LOTS!

Oh, Helen! I tried the carmel recipe on baby pears and coated with nut topping bits...huge hit! Merci beau coup! Chef Rocha

Ruby said...

I am a big fan of the Pioneer Woman, and would love to get a copy of her book! And, yes, I think Tartelette could almost be a french version of the Pioneer Woman.

stigg100 said...

Cooking, cooking, cooking! I love all of the home-style/Midwest recipes that Ree features. I'd love to win the book, so I don't have to bake with my computer opened to her recipes on the kitchen counter anymore!!

betty said...

One of our favorite *comfort* dinner recipes is baked fingerlings topped with sauteed leeks and bacon. I never would've thought to put this on crust, but I sure can't wait to try!

Sarah said...

Like you, I love potatoes in any form - fried, sauteed, mashed, boiled, on pizzas! Thanks for the recipe! Mmm... I am also a French expatriate in the Carolinas... but NC! Thanks for the great blog!

Lorian said...

what could be better than potatoes and leeks? Oh yeah, a pizza with potatoes and leeks!

Tracy said...

Minus the bacon, this looks like a great vegetarian appetizer for all the holiday open houses coming up!

Hilda said...

I'd love that cook book!

Mariana said...

I really hope I win! I'm an avid ree fan!

Marina said...

I know this will be hard to believe but I had some of your salted butter caramel sauce leftover from a couple of weeks ago.
It survived many an oogling and spoon attacks.
Finally, in a moment of clarity, 'cinnamonless rolls!' I thought.
I placed it on the bottom of the pan so when they finished baking and got turned over...
YUM.
Thank you for yet another superb recipe.

I live in a house in the middle of the desert (fabulously close to "dessert" no?). Have four 4-legged companions. My better half helps save endangered species (almost like herding in the last frontier). My scribbled collection of recipes are stuffed in between the pages of those books that I love. And I love potatoes, pizza and cookbooks that read like novels.

april said...

this looks fantastic - at my house we have a tradition of making pizza on the barbecue. the toppings change, and this looks like a combo more than worthy of a try.

also, pw cookbook would be fantastic.

There's a bakery here in NYC that puts thinly sliced potatoes on some of their pizzas. Pure heaven! Those green onions look like you just picked them out of your yard with the long roots still attached.

Potato pizza is a new concept to me. I may just have to try it! Though the Kroger in walking distance has a produce section that definitely leaves something to be desired... I hope they carry leeks!

Aparna said...

I am still working through the pile-up in my reader when I just saw your tweet! LOL

I've never tried potato and leeks on a pizza before. Love Ree's blof and her new site too, so the book must be excellent.

Keep up the artistry!

Please hope I'm not too late. I have tried to win her book all over the net. So now is the time. I would love to win. hehe

Okay, story teller.....I love stories too, second to that I love the photos. Oh, I can't decide, pictures and stories or stories and pictures. hmmmm
The photos of your pizza are beautiful. I love the photos. Glad you had a great time judging with Colette. I think she is the most talented in her field.
Big Fun

i was also a big fan of ree, she makes me want to start learning how to cook and bake. because i was in indonesia, i wasn't able to find any copy of ree's books in store :( and i want it soooo bad.

You photos are such an inspiration! Awesome stuff. Great subject matter doesn't hurt, though, does it!

Helen,

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for your posts week after week and month after month. You writing is beautiful and sophisticated without making me, a reader, feel isolated. There is a connection you have formed with me, and I'm sure thousands of other readers of Tartelette, that makes me feel as if I know you from thousands of miles away in Iowa.

Your blog continues to be an inspiration for me, as a fellow blogger. Thanks again!

Madison Mayberry

I made this pizza last night with two girlfriends. I didnt use the goat cheese, not a favourite of mine, but used more mozarella.Also added some mustard over the potatoes. We loved it, so unusual with the potatoes and leeks. Its a keeper this one!

Rebecca said...

That looks delicious! Can't wait to try it.

I'm looking forward to hearing all about the gingerbread. What fun!

I hope one does not have to be from the US to enter. Anyway, I would love to have a copy!

peachey said...

what a perfect recipe! i am going away for a mountain trip in december when i went in the summer, i made peach & rosemary pizza & now i have a cold-weather complement!

Amanda said...

I think one of those pizzas should come along with the book!

Dani Craig said...

This made me hungry :) I wish I could have some.

Cath said...

I Know I'm late to the party, but I couldn't hush my mouth. Especially given I hear of you being such an amazing cook.

Those interesting amazing baby leeks? Well, hate to tell you, they are just green onions!

To back this up? We're vegie growers and know our onions from our leeks.

Helene said...

Cath: I feel a bit of defensive in your comment which is completely unnecessary. Read the text, I say they are indeed green onions.

Would love to add this cookbook to my collection!!!

s said...

potatoes and leeks were made to be together, but the idea of a pizza... well, I can't wait to try this recipe! The Pioneer Woman cookbook will be a welcome addition to my cookbook collection. I know I will return to it time and again!
