The sweetness of red onions is tempered by tangy goat cheese in this carb-lover's pizza. Use any color fingerling potatoes you like—blue or purple varieties are particularly dramatic.
7 ounces fingerling potatoes (about 5 potatoes)
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 medium red onion, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
1 (13.8-ounce) can refrigerated pizza crust dough
2 tablespoons cornmeal
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
3/4 cup (3 ounces) crumbled goat cheese
1 garlic clove, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 450°.
Place potatoes in a saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a boil. Cook 10 minutes or until just tender; drain. Cool slightly; cut potatoes crosswise into 1/4-inch slices.
Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion to pan, and sauté 8 minutes or until tender.
Roll dough out on a lightly floured surface to a 14 x 10–inch rectangle. Sprinkle cornmeal over a large baking sheet; place dough on baking sheet. Sprinkle mozzarella evenly over dough. Arrange potatoes and onion over mozzarella; top evenly with goat cheese and garlic. Bake in lower third of oven at 450° for 15 minutes or until browned. Sprinkle with thyme; cut into 12 pieces.
My teenager said she wished there was a tomato sauce on this one but there were zero leftovers and everyone said to make this again. I never had a pizza with potatoes on it before. But I have to admit it was good. I used our pizza stone and it needed more like 18 minutes to brown nicely.
This is a really solid pizza recipe. I've used regular potatoes (par boiled) and added bacon and chicken to it, too. It's a really good starter recipe to add your own touches too. Put fresh basil on top, add olives, and/or add some extra spices to make it yours. I hope you enjoy it as much as we have!
Everyone loved this! I was worried it might be bland so I made a few small changes to add some additional flavors. I used Trader Joe's garlic & herb dough. I also roasted the potatoes, fresh thyme and leeks together first. I also spread a little bit of Trader Joe's olive tapenade on the dough first for a little more flavor. I used both the goat and mozzarella cheese. We'll definitely make it again. Very delicious & different pizza.
We love this pizza. It has become a staple for us. It's simple to make and my whole family loves it. We've made it for guests and they loved it too! We use feta sometimes since its easier to find and it works great.
