Yield: 2 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Warm water
3 tablespoons Olive oil
\N dash Sugar
1 pack Dry yeast
2½ cup Flour
\N \N Salt
1 large New potato
2 \N Leeks, white part only, trimmed and chopped
1 tablespoon Cornmeal
1 teaspoon Dried rosmary, crushed
\N \N White pepper, freshly ground
2 ounces Goat cheese, crumbled
2 ounces Saga blue cheese or other blue cheese, crumbled

Combine ¼ cup warm water, 1 tablespoon olive oil and sugar in cup.

Stir to mix. Stir in yeast and set aside until mixture becomes foamy, about 5 minutes. Combine 2-¼ cups flour and ¼ teaspoon salt in large bowl. Stir in yeast mixture and remaining ¾ cup warm water until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes, using part or all of remaining ¼ cup flour. Place dough in clean bowl. Cover with cloth and let rise in warm place 1 hour. Cook potato until tender but firm enough to slice easily. Drain and cool. Peel potato and cut into slices ¼ inch thick. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in medium skillet. Add leeks and saute over medium heat until tender, about 5 minutes. Set potato and leeks aside. When dough finishes rising, punch down and roll out on lightly floured board to about 14 inch, ¼-inch thick circle. Sprinkle baking sheet with cornmeal and place dough over cornmeal. Brush top of remaining 1 tablesepoon of olive oil. Sprinkle with rosemary. Bake at 400~ until crust is light brown, about 15 minutes. Remove from oven. Scatter leeks and potato slices over crust, arranging potato slices evenly over top. Season to taste with salt and white pepper. Sprinkle with goat cheese and blue cheese. Bake until cheese melts and pizza is hot, 5 to 8 minutes. Cut into 4 wedges. Note: If desired, all of one cheese can be used. If using blue cheese, select mild one. The article further states that as summer progresses, you might substitute fresh tomatoes for the potatoes, or use strips of sauteed green and red pepper, corn kernels, even steamed snow peas. If you want meat, add bits of prosciutto or thinly sliced chicken or turkey sausage.
