Sometimes my very favorite meals are the result of a bit of foraging for what I happen to have on hand. Such a supper resulted in this pizza topped with my findings: potato, olive, feta, and a handful of arugula too. All are heaped on top of a bit of garlic and olive oil and drizzled with spicy honey at the end.
Potato, Olive and Feta Pizza with Arugula and Spicy Honey Drizzle
Pizza dough and cornmeal, for flouring
1 Yukon gold potato, peeled and very thinly sliced
8 oz feta cheese
1/3 cup black olives, torn or chopped in half
1/2 cup arugula
2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for drizzling
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon honey
1/4 teaspoon pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon water
Salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
Stretch the pizza dough, settling it on a cornmeal dusted piece of parchment set over a baking sheet. Bake without the ingredients for about 5 minutes. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the minced garlic, the two tablespoons of olive oil, a pinch of salt and a pinch of pepper.
Take the pizza crust out, then brush the top with the olive oil and garlic mixture. Assemble the potato slices, feta, and olives on top, drizzling the potatoes with a bit more olive oil and return to the oven for another twenty minutes.
While the pizza bakes, make the spicy honey. Whisk in a small bowl the honey, pepper flakes, and water and set aside. Once the pizza is finished cooking, brush the crust with olive oil and top with fresh arugula, drizzling the spicy honey over it all just before serving.
