Potato Leek Pizza and A Giveaway

Saturday, November 14, 2009

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.

Ryan Grace said...

This looks incredible! Although I'm not a fan of goat cheese, so I might replace it with boursin or something else kind of crumbly. Your photography is wonderful, as well!

I can't wait to try the potato- leek pizza! It combines some of my very favorite things!! Thanks for sharing your thoughts about Ree and her cookbook, which sounds great!
--Sonnie

MichelleSG said...

Hmm potato and leek pizza. I read the book, have seen the recipe, but never even considered making it. I may have to reconsider. Thanks!

Jamie said...

Gorgeous photos! This pizza sounds fabulous! I love Ree and her blog!

mommyloon said...

Yummy. I wish I had bought those leeks when I was in the store last.

MamaBear said...

I would love to win a copy of PW's cookbook! I think my family would love it too - My meal planning leaves (more than) a little to be desired.

leah dyrud said...

Ohhh, I think I just spotted a little slice of heaven!

Abigaele@yahoo.com said...

Thank you Ree for the link to this page. I don't know what I like better - the recipes or the photos of the recipes. They are both very impressive!! Thanks, Helen, for this offer.

Angela said...

Mmmm...that pizza looks fantastic! I've been looking for an elegant pizza/ focaccia to make for a Thanksgiving appetizer- this just might be it!

Amy said...

Wow! That looks delicious!! I would love to win this book! :)

MapleCottage said...

Oh What a great giveaway!! Enter me, please :)

Audrey said...

I've never tried leaks before but oh my goodness, I am definitely gonna have to give this a try.

VeggieGirl said...

Beautiful pizza!! And I love the vegetable/potato story, haha.

I love Ree's recipes and I would love to own a copy of her cookbook!

Natalie said...

I just stumbled on your blog while searching for a dessert recipe, and cannot believe I've been missing out on it! Your photos are absolutely breathtaking - I cannot wait to try out some of your recipes.

The Pioneer Woman looks great as well - so I guess I'll put myself in the running for the giveaway.

Enjoy the gingerbread competition!

Patricia in Texas said...

I too enjoy Ree's blog, as much for her photo essays as for her fantastic cooking!

Our local, (small,) bookstore keeps running out of her cookbook, so I have not yet been able to get a copy...

Erica said...

Oh, I've heard so many wonderful things about Ree's cookbook...I'd love to win it! (And I'm a potato fan, too! Love 'em fried, steamed, mashed...)

Sparks Photography said...

That looks so yummy!

Julia said...

Yum! That looks so yummy. I would love a copy of the cookbook, I hope I win! Thanks for the opportunity :)

TSannie said...

Over from Pioneer Woman's comment on twitter.
I'm blown away by your photography skills! Your pictures are simply stunning (they also make me drool!). Incredible!

Myrnie said...

That pizza looks amazing, and what a great giveaway!

Ophy said...

Yum! Looks and sounds delicious! Thanks! :)

Jody said...

I would LOVE a PW cookbook!!! What a wonderful giveaway!

The Nieves 6 said...

Yum! Love everything on this pizza except the goat cheese. I'm wondering if the bacon might win me over though. I would think that strong smoky flavor might mask the goat cheese a little or can you recommend a cow's cheese alternative?
Can't wait to try it!

Zoey (Vegedible) said...

oh yum! I tried a roasted potato about a year ago and it was a disaster. Now though I have a mandolin on my side...could be potato leek pizza in my future!

The Purple Foodie said...

STUNNING! I would have never ever thought of making a leek and potato pizza - now I know I just have to put leeks on my shopping list for tomorrow.

Avital said...

This pizza looks so scrumptious. Good thing I have a nose, so it bumped into the screen while trying to give it a bite ;)

I love your blog! I've been following for a while...

Jeanee said...

Mmmmm... mmm. That potato leek pizza looks divine.

I'd make it without bacon though (we're vegetarians). Or I could use Morning Star Farms pretend bacon.

Well... I've recently been following your blog. LOVE it! Your photography is just fantastic. I've been sharing your beauty on my Tumblr (http://thelaundryroom.tumblr.com/).

Anywho... I'd LOVE to be a lucky winner of Ree Drummond's cookbook.

And oh... you get to judge the National Gingerbread House Competition?!? That is SO cool.

Thanks for doing this giveaway!

Kelly said...

looks delicious! and the photography is gorgeous. i'd love to start taking photos of my cooking, in hopes that the pictures will be just as enjoyable as the food, but less fattening. :)

junia said...

WOw it's strange for me to think that you read Pioneer Woman as well!

I read both of your blogs (voraciously) but you guys are both so different! (it seems)

Anywhoo, I'd love a copy. :-D

Sarah said...

Yum! I'd love to win her cookbook. I have gotten a little more adventurous in my cooking lately (read: I've been making more than frozen pizza).

Sewfordough said...

This pizza looks amazing. I hope I can get the crust to turn out as good as this!

kynomi said...

How cool that you get to judge the gingerbread contest. I have seen it on television before, and it is awesome. Would love to have the cookbook.

Chris said...

That looks so good! Leeks are great!!!

Gretta said...

LOVE your blog & your food photos are amazing! Thanks for the chance to win!

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality said...

Sign me up for the giveaway! If I don't win, I may have to just buy one. Love Ree's blog and her recipes, have cooked a few of them myself and been reading her over 2 years now. Yep, hooked! And you're review is great, just what we all think of her too. She gives blogging a good name!

Kevin said...

Great looking pizza!!

Rebecca Martin said...

I am definitely going to make this pizza in the next couple weeks . . . and I would love a Pioneer Woman cookbook!

Half Assed Kitchen said...

That looks amazing. And like something I could actually pull off.

Candy said...

Just found your site and I am in love!

Miss M.J. Ma'am said...

This pizza is sooo good. I made it last week for a girls get together. The only bad thing about it? There were no left overs for the cook to eat while relaxing after the get together!! Next time I will make sure there are!

Anonymous said...

I came across your because of the beautiful photos. I have always been fearful of cooking but your site is so personable that I feel like you coaching through each meal. Great blog. Colleen www.flickr/colleencataniaphotography

Lauralee said...

I'm glad that The Pioneer Woman referred me to your blog. Your dialogue was fun and the links spread me in all kinds of new directions. Thanks for the prize offering of Ree's coobook and the introduction to your site, you can be sure I'll be back again to see what's going on in the marsh.

koohiiteasheri said...

I would LOVE to have one of Ree's cookbooks! I am obsessed with foodblogs (ask the hubby), but still like the feel of turning the pages of a good ol' cookbook! And Ree is one of the best! :)

Looks delicious! Love Ree!

Katherine said...

That pizza does look great. I have never cooked with leeks before so I am a little scared to try.

Danielle said...

I made a potato leek tart a couple months ago that was fantastic. I'll have to try this pizza! My husband and I love trying new homemade pizzas.

Chem242 said...

Not a huge fan of leeks but looks like it could be modified with something else and still be delicious.

Meredith said...

Ooooh oooooh me me me me me! I want one please!

Ali said...

That looks SO good!

lindsay said...

I first experienced potato pizza when my Italian husband made it for me ten years ago. I thought it was the craziest thing, until I tasted it! This recipe is really taking that idea to the next level - I love the addition of leeks and mozzerella...yum! I can't wait to try this recipe and now I have added the Ree Drummond to my blogs list. Thanks so much!

Oh and on a separate note, the apple cake recipe from your previous blog entry was AMAZING. Thank you so much for sharing all you do. You are inspirational to me!!!

Angela said...

Mercy this looks wicked good! I saw this post in Ree's tweet. My mother in law once used shredded hashbrowns to cheese a pizza. The hashbrowns and the cheese looked just alike and were next to each other in my freezer. We had an excellent laugh and ate the cheeseless potato topped pizzas anyway. This recipe sounds awesome and we may have to try it. By the way, I like your writing style and have added you to my reader. I'm looking forward to reading more from your blog.

Melita said...

This pizza looks so delicious! I love her recipes...I made her Mexican rice and Chiles Rellenos last night :) mmmm

YUM! This looks scrumptious!

DeeAmi said...

Oh this looks heavenly. Now I am torn! Do I make this, or my deep dish pizza I developed so that I could find some legitimate excuse for buying a springform pan?

What the hey, I will make both. It will be pizza weekend around here!

Jennie said...

That pizza sounds delish! Yum, saving this recipe in my to-try pile.

And I love Ree, too!

Sarah said...

Looks delicious! Trying to go veg though, so might try it without the bacon.

Dave said...

OK, so now I'm hungry for Pizza!

Yum that pizza looks delicious - thanks for sharing the recipe!

gaelle@whatareyoufeedingyourkidsthesedays.com said...

Oh, I can relate to the no "double starch" in our daily cooking... until I met my husband and his South American roots where they eat Lentils WITH Rice! I just loved it!
I also follow Ree's blog and love discovering new recipes from part of the US I have never been... and since this recipe calls for leeks, I'll make it for my family soon. I am sure we'll all love it. But why do leeks cost so much in the US?

Cheri said...

Oh my! You get to judge with Colette Peters? So jealous! The whole event sounds like so much fun. Can't wait to see the pics (if there are some). :) Hope you have a blast!

I must admit that potatoes on pizza sounds a little odd, but I won't judge until I taste it for myself. :)

Karen said...

I had to do a double-take when this came up in my reader, I'm so used to seeing pastry! The pizza looks fabulous, and I'm sure it tastes fabulous, too.

Christina Hendrick said...

mmm - can't get much better than this - I'm making it tonight!!

mk said...

Oh wow, I would really love to win a Pioneer Woman cookbook. I also discovered her through her cinnamon rolls recipe and find the photos of the process so helpful!
Fingers crossed!

squirrelbread said...

i've been dying to try a potato pizza and this looks like the winner. thanks for posting!

cheers,

amylouwho said...

Yum! One of my favorite pastries in France (Alsace) was la tarte a l'oignon. mmmm. I think I'd like this too.

I just flipped through her cookbook at the bookstore today. I LOVE all the step-by-step pictures! awesome!

Thanks!

Egle said...

My husband is totally like your dad. I call him "potato man". Probably he would live all his life eating only potatoes. And meat. Yeah.

And I'm sure that we will defineteley try this potato pizza. Wonderful photos. As always, I mean :)

pamela said...

Perfect timing..I bought a leek this week with no idea what to do with it..thank you so much for finding this great idea! Will try it tomorrow and will let you know how it came out :-)

you photography is excellent!

Hannah said...

The pizza looks delish, thanks for the opportunity to win the book!

Nicole said...

Ah, this pizza looks amazing. I have a question about it: the crust recipe says it makes 2 pizza crusts. Are the topping amounts to make one pizza or two?
I hope I win one of Ree's cookbooks, I am a great fan of hers!
Merci.

Katie (The Life of a Firefigher's Wife) said...

That does look good!! :) It's amazing how much the internet has made cooking so accessible, even for non-fancy cooks like myself.

susies1955 said...

Love that pizza. Great photo and looks so yummy.
Would love to win one of Ree's books. :)

janeannechovy said...

Ooh, pick me! Veuillez me choisir!

Kate said...

I'm addicted to following the Pioneer Woman and anything she writes! I just love the combination of leek and potato in anything. I tend to make my pizza bases with a basic white soda bread recipe, it makes it fairly instant with no rising involved. I would really really love to win a copy of Ree's book.

Cece said...

Hi !!

I am glad Ree had a link to your site so I can enter. Also, I will bookmark your site, as I find it wonderful. The weather couldn't be more beautiful for you to be in the mountains. We went last weekend from Atlanta, and it was glorious. Thanks for this give-away !! mawcee

This looks delicious! I've never made pizza before, but this might be reason enough to give it a try!

DianasaurDishes said...

Leeks are on my list of ingredients I want to cook with but haven't yet. Maybe I'll try this for my first recipe. Oh, and I totally relate with trying not to aggravate the store employees! Sometimes I have to just contain my food nerdyness when I shop.

Maria said...

Oh my goodness. Your photos are beyond stunning. I love Ree and her new book. You did her proud:) I can't wait to make this now!

julė said...

I love Ree's blog and the way she cooks, so I'm definitely excited about the book!

First off, this pizza looks absolutely delicious! If I wasn't so sure I'd devour the whole thing myself I would make it right now!

Second, I just made Ree's skillet cornbread the other day and it was great, so I greatly appreciate her willingness to give away three copies of her book! Fingers crossed ;)

Your photos are so stunning! And I never say no to potato & leek pizza nor to a chance to win a cookbook!

I found your site thanks to Ms. Ree, or as I refer to her: the Goddess known as The Pioneer Woman. She "tweeted" about this post & I agree, your photos are fab!
I also use Ree to please my husband. Career Army, raised on a farm in Alabama, he finds such joy in dinner when I make anything "Ree".
I'll be trying this recipe this week thanks to you & I've added your blog to my bookmarks! Great to "meet" you!

i waited in line all night to meet Ree at the SLC signing, but they ran out of books...in all of utah. so i'll toss my hat in the ring and try for one of yours. you're welcome to send me the dog-ear'd copy you've already worked your way through...that'd be a nice touch actually!

Alexandra said...

What a cool invitation! To capture the scent in that room!

the enticing rustic feel of your photos really highlights the beauty of the pizza!

Margi said...

This has been a recipe I've wanted to try for a long time. But small town equals no leeks to be had so I grew some. Harvested them this weekend so this pizza is on the menu for the coming week.

Am going to Nashville in Dec. for PW's book signing. Looking forward to it.

Connie said...

First time here and I am blown away by your photography! Amazing! Didn't know I was hungry for potato pizza until I saw the photo.

I too am a big fan of Ree's and am one of the few people that don't have a copy of her book yet. I'm so glad I found your site and look forward to reading more of it!
