did you know that every friday is "pizza friday" at our house
yes i know, we are so exciting

this pizza will definitely excite you - as i am writing this i really wish i polishing off another one of these amazing pizza's

potato + arugula pizza // spelt oatmeal crust

this fall has been very mild- today we enjoyed 60 degree weather, i really can't complain
i still have arugula growing in the garden, which just so happens to make an excellent pizza topping

i absolutely love the combination of arugula and potatoes
 - the potatoes are also local, courtesy picnic rock farm
the red pepper flakes give the pizza a little kick - 
the honey, also local balances out the heat of the red pepper
sweet & spicy perfection

the dough for this amazing pizza is made from spelt flour and multi-grain rolled oats -
regular oats and flour can be substituted, if you can though try it at least once with the spelt flour
i promise you won't be disappointed

i love the fact that it is the end of november and i am still lucky enough to be enjoying greens from my ever giving backyard garden

the cold nights tend to make the arugula a little less bitter or rather peppery compared to what i enjoyed during the summer months

white new potatoes are thinly sliced, like paper thin
then layered & drizzled with rosemary olive oil and honey
sprinkled with a healthy dose of kosher salt and a pinch of red pepper flakes it doesn't get any easier than that - you are officially on your way to pizza heaven

Potato & Arugula Pizza ~ Spelt Oatmeal Crust
makes (1) 16" pizza or (2) 8" pizzas

you will need:

for the crust:
  • 2 1/4 tsp yeast
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 tsp raw honey
  • pinch salt
  • rosemary olive oil
  • 2 1/2 - 3 1/2 spelt flour
  • 1/2 cup multi grain rolled oats
  • cornmeal for dusting
for the pizza:
  • (1) small bunch arugula
  • 3 small new potatoes thinly sliced (paper thin)
  • pinch of red pepper flakes
  • rosemary olive oil
  • kosher salt
  • honey
  • in a medium bowl combine yeast and warm water (120 degrees)
  • preheat over to 450* and set pizza stone in the oven to allow the stone to preheat
  • allow to sit for about 5 minutes, until frothy/bubbly
  • add salt, olive oil & honey
  • with a wooden spoon gently stir  in 2 cups of flour 1 cup at a time & oats
  • turn dough out on a lightly floured clean surface
  • knead remaining flour in a 1/4 cup at a time to prevent hands from sticking to the dough and dough from the work surface, knead for 10 minutes or until dough is smooth and elastic
  • return to a clean bowl, oiled with olive oil
  • cover and allow to rise for 30 minutes or until double in size
  • divide dough into 2 equal portions if making the 8" pizzas - store the unused dough (if saving) in a ziploc gallon bag and store in fridge for up to a week
  • on a piece of parchment paper sprinkled with cornmeal hand stretch or roll the dough out with a rolling pin to an 8" diameter- perfection is not what you are looking for- it is suppose to look homemade
  • roll up the sides of the dough to create a crust if that is your thing - i am definitely a crust girl
  • drizzle the dough with rosemary olive oil
  • layer the potatoes, overlapping each slightly
  • sprinkle with a generous amount of salt & sprinkle with crushed red pepper flakes
  • drizzle with honey and a bit more olive oil
  • with olive oil spray, spray the crust /edges of pizza
  • transfer pizza and parchment paper directly onto the pizza stone that is pre-heated in your oven
  • bake for 10-12 minutes until edges are lightly browned and the potatoes are cooked through
  • remove from oven, allow to cool for 2 minutes
  • top with arugula, slice and enjoy!
