We made this at home. Ourselves. The dough and everything.  It.was.amazing.  Seriously.  Rich and I (well really just Rich) have been experimenting with making our own dough and tortillas and though it takes a bit of extra effort it is soooo worth it. (Easy for me to say since I'm just a spectator)  You'll never want store bought tortillas again.  But if you must - only buy the uncooked kind - trust.

So back to the pizza....in our dough making escapades we decided to try out this homemade pizza recipe from the folks at Taste (Williams-Sonoma's blog) and we're so glad we did.  The roasted garlic spread, goat cheese, potatoes and asparagus are all such a delicious combination.   Why aren't potatoes a standard pizza topping?  Cray. 

Oh and remember in my last post I mentioned I wanted to start actually using my pinterest pins?  This is one of them.  Check.

White Pizza with Potatoes and Asparagus

3 small Yukon Gold potatoes, about 3/4 lb. total, cut into rounds 3/16 inch thick
Olive oil for drizzling, plus 1/4 cup
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
1 garlic head
1/4 lb. asparagus, ends trimmed, spears thinly sliced on the bias
2 oz. goat cheese, crumbled

Preheat an oven to 425°F.

In a bowl, stir together the potatoes and enough olive oil to coat evenly. Season with salt and pepper. Spread the potatoes out in a single layer on a baking sheet. Place the garlic head in the center of a piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil, drizzle with olive oil and enclose in the foil. Transfer the potatoes and garlic to the oven. Roast until the potatoes are tender and golden and the garlic is soft, about 20 minutes.

When the garlic is cool to the touch, squeeze the pulp from the cloves into a small bowl and whisk in the 1/4 cup olive oil until smooth. Season with salt.

Preheat a Kalamazoo pizza oven over medium-high heat.

On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough into a 12-inch round and transfer to a floured pizza peel. Spread the roasted garlic oil over the dough, leaving a 1/2-inch border uncovered. Top with the potatoes and asparagus.

Transfer the pizza to the pizza oven. Bake until crisp and browned, about 3 minutes, rotating the pizza as needed to ensure even browning. Transfer to a cutting board and sprinkle with the cheese. Cut into slices and serve immediately. Serves 4.
