potato + leek + prosciutto pizza

3-4 medium-sized redskin potatoes, paper-thin sliced

2 medium-sized leeks, cleaned well & thinly sliced

1/3 pound prosciutto, diced

Fresh mozzarella {I used about 6 thin slices}

4 ounces goat cheese, crumbled

1/3 cup grated Parmesan

Store-bought pizza dough

Olive oil

Salt and pepper

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees {or the recommended temperature on your store-bought pizza dough}. In a medium-sized skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat; add diced prosciutto. Cook until the prosciutto is crispy, about 3-5 minutes. Transfer to paper towel-lined plate. In the same skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil {or if there is enough grease left over from the prosciutto, you won’t need any olive oil} and add leeks. Cook until soft, about 3-4 minutes. Spray pizza pan with cooking spray and stretch out the dough. Drizzle a little olive oil over the crust. To assemble the pizza: arrange the potato slices in a single layer all over the crust, overlapping just slightly. Sprinkle potatoes with a little salt. Lay the mozzarella slices on top of the potatoes in a single layer, followed by the leeks. Sprinkle the prosciutto on top followed by the crumbled goat cheese and grated Parmesan cheese. Finally, sprinkle the entire pizza with ground pepper. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese begins to bubble.

By now, I’m sure you are well acquainted with my love for pizza. Fall pizzas are probably one of my favorite to make because there are so many delicious ingredients to incorporate. This particular pizza is my version of the Pioneer Woman’s Potato-Leek Pizza {the Pioneer Woman is my favorite Food Network star — she has such simple, yet delicious recipes!}. I’ve always been a fan of the potato-leek combination, especially in the soup version; it’s the perfect comfort food on a cold, fall day. In the Pioneer Woman’s recipe, she uses bacon. I’m not a huge fan of bacon, but I knew that the potatoes and leeks needed something salty to compliment the flavors. I decided to go with something similar to bacon, but more tolerable to my palate: prosciutto. This was such a fabulous fall pizza, I will definitely be making this again before fall is over!
