Winter Pizza with Greens + Potato
Why we love it:
- 1 pound Prepared Pizza Dough
- 3 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1⁄2 pound Yukon Gold Potatoes
- 1⁄2 pound Broccoli Rabe
- 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
- 1 Red Onion
- 1 cup Smoked Mozzarella Cheese
- 1 cup Provolone Cheese
- 1 15-ounce can Crushed Tomatoes (or pizza sauce, or marinara)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon Black Pepper
- 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
Let the dough warm up and rise for about 1 hour or a little more at room temperature, on a baking sheet coated in the olive oil.
2. PREHEAT THE OVEN TO 450 DEGREES
Wash the potato and poke with a fork a few times. Microwave on high for 5 minutes. Slice potato into thin rounds, about ⅛” thick or thinner.
Chop the broccoli rabe and place on a baking sheet with a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt. Put in the oven for 2 - 4 minutes and let it wilt down just a bit. Remove.
Slice the red onion into thin rings or wedges. Grate cheese as necessary.
Use a bit of flour if needed and use your preferred method (see Culinary Skills section) for shaping the dough. Place on the oiled baking sheet.
Spread with tomato sauce, season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Add red pepper flakes if using.
Layer the potato slices over top without overlapping too much. Sprinkle on about ⅓ of the cheese. Add the onions, broccoli, and top with remaining cheese.
Place in the oven, near the bottom, and bake for 20 minutes. Rotate if needed and near the end of cooking, you can move it up to the top of the oven if the bottom is getting too brown or the cheese isn’t browned enough.
Let cook a few minutes, transfer to a cutting board, and slice into wedges or squares.
