Pizza - Potato and Leek

Potato and Leek Pizza
This is probably a Failsafe mainstay.  I was so surprised by how very tasty it is!!  I got this recipe from the 'Friendly Food' cookbook.

Ingredients:  Makes 2 pizzas
  • 1 portion homemade pizza base
  • 2 leeks, halved lengthways and thinly sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 3 (600g) white-skinned potatoes, peeled and thickly sliced
  • ground sea salt
  • 2 tabs chives, finely chopped
  • Steam or microwave potato until almost tender
  • Transfer to plate lined with paper towel
  • Spread half of leek mixture over each pizza base
  • Arrange potato slices in a thin layer over leeks
  • Brush with a little oil and sprinkle with salt
  • Bake 20-25 minutes until potatoes and dough are golden
  • Sprinkle with chives before serving
Verdict:  Pizzas are usually met with "Yaaaaay!! Pizza!!!" and then we hope they get a few food groups into them and not just "pizza base".  But, hey.  It's Pizza!!

Tweeks:  I also often add some butternut pumpkin* (Sals) to at least one of the pizzas,  just very finely sliced with a vegie peeler and added along with the potato.  Mr frillypants and I are usually the only ones who actually eat that bit.
