  • Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 1 wedge)


  • 1/3 cup sun-dried tomatoes, packed without oil
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 cups thinly sliced Vidalia or other sweet onion
  • 1 (11-ounce) package refrigerated French bread dough
  • 1 tablespoon cornmeal
  • 2 cups thinly sliced small red potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh or 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/4 cup tomato purée
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) crumbled feta cheese


Preheat oven to 425°.

Combine tomatoes and water; let stand, covered, 30 minutes. Drain tomatoes; coarsely chop.

Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion; sauté 5 minutes. Cook 15 minutes or until golden brown, stirring frequently.

Unroll the bread dough, and flatten into a 13-inch circle on a lightly floured surface. Place the dough on a 12-inch pizza pan sprinkled with cornmeal. Crimp edges of dough with fingers to form a rim. Pierce dough with a fork. Bake at 425° for 10 minutes, and set aside.

Combine potatoes and next 5 ingredients (potatoes through salt) in a bowl. Coat a jelly-roll pan with cooking spray; arrange potatoes in a single layer in prepared pan. Bake at 425° for 20 minutes or until potatoes are lightly browned, stirring once.

Spread the tomato purée over crust. Top with potatoes, caramelized onions, and sun-dried tomatoes; sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 425° for 15 minutes or until crust is browned.
