Recipe Preparation Level: moderate
Italian pizza bears little resemblance to the pizza we usually find in the United States; itís sold by weight and length, and the toppings are often rather simple. Jim Lahey, owner of the Sullivan Street Bakery in New York City, demonstrates how to make a traditional potato pizza and shares some of his other favorite combinations.
Makes two 8-inch pizzas or one 14-inch pizza
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3/4 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon instant dry yeast
1 3/4 cups water
2 potatoes, thinly sliced, to make about 2 cups
1 tablespoon chopped onion
4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 sprig fresh rosemary
1. Combine flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, sugar, and yeast in the bowl of an electric mixer, and slowly add cold water. Mix on low speed until ingredients begin to combine. Increase speed to medium-high and continue to mix for about 10 minutes until the dough is smooth and elastic and cleanly pulls away from the sides of the mixing bowl.
2. Place dough in an oiled bowl and allow to rest for 2 to 4 hours until it has doubled in size.
3. While the dough rests, prepare the potato topping. Slice potatoes very thin using a knife or a mandoline. Then soak them in several changes of ice water to remove excess starch and prevent discoloration. Drain slices in a colander, toss with 1/2 teaspoon salt, and set aside for 10 minutes. Drain any accumulated water. In a medium bowl, combine potatoes, chopped onions, and 1 tablespoon olive oil, and set aside.
4. Heat oven to 440 degrees. Divide dough in half. Place each piece on an oiled baking pan. Using the palms of your hands, flatten dough out to the edges of the baking pan. Evenly spread potatoes over the surface of the dough up to the very edge, or about one inch from the edge if you desire a crust on your pizza. Season with remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and olive oil.
5. Bake potato pizza for approximately 30 minutes, or until it has shrunk away from the edges of a pan and the bottom is golden brown. Remove from oven, and allow to cool slightly; slice into pieces and serve. Potato pizza is also delicious served at room temperature.
