Idaho Fingerling Potato Pizza

From: Chef Rocco Whalen, Fahrenheit, Cleveland, OH. Yield: 6-8 slices


1 package dry yeast

1 tsp. honey

¾ cup warm water

2¾ cup all-purpose flour

1 tsp. salt

2 Tbsp. olive oil

1 cup mixed Idaho-grown Fingerling Potatoes, roasted and sliced (Russian Banana, French Fingerlings, Ruby Crescent)

1 cup mixed mushrooms, sliced (miatake, Shiitake and oyster)

1 Tbsp. oil

6 slices triple cream Brie cheese

6-8 oz. four-cheese pizza blend (Mozzarella, Provolone, Asiago and Parmesan)

For dough: In small bowl, dissolve yeast with warm water. After yeast starts to bloom add remaining ingredients, except olive oil. Spin all ingredients in electric bowl with hook attachment for 6 minutes, then add olive oil and spin for 2 more minutes. Proof, then retard dough in cooler under cold wet towel. Roll dough until approximately 10” round.
