Potato-rosemary pizza recipe
- 1 package prepared pizza dough
- 6 small Yukon gold potatoes
- 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 large shallots, sliced thin
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 4 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
- 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary leaves
- Preheat your oven according to the pizza dough package directions. Spread your pizza dough out on a baking sheet and set aside.
- Add the potatoes, and enough water to cover them, to a large pan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to simmer and cook for about 5 minutes or until the potatoes are tender, then drain them.
- When the potatoes have cooled to the touch, slice them thin (use a mandolin if you have one).
- Add 2 tablespoons olive oil to a saute pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add the potato slices, season them with salt, and cook, turning often, for 3-5 minutes or until they begin to turn lightly golden.
- During the last few minutes the potatoes are cooking, add the garlic and shallots to the pan. Remove and set aside.
- Brush the top of the dough with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add 3 ounces of the mozzarella cheese to the dough, followed by a single layer of the potato mixture.
- Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese, the remaining 1 ounce of mozzarella cheese, and the ground black pepper over the potatoes.
- Cook according to the pizza dough package directions, or until the crust turns golden.
- During the last few minutes of cooking, add the rosemary leaves to the top of the pizza.
- Serve warm.
