Smothered with a roasted garlic base, and covered in aged cheddar cheese, thinly sliced potatoes and italian sausage, this is anything but an ordinary pizza!
  • 1 batch of your favorite pizza dough
  • 2 large heads of garlic
  • 2 tablespoons of olive, divided
  • ¼ teaspoon salt, plus more for seasoning
  • 2 red potatoes, sliced paper thin on a mandoline (this is important, if the potatoes are thick, they won't cook through)
  • 1 ½ cups aged cheddar cheese
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese (plus more for sprinkling)
  • 2 links mild Italian sausage, removed from casings, crumbled and cooked
  • ½ small onion, thinly sliced
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut the top ¼ off of the garlic heads and place on a large piece of aluminum foil. Drizzle with one tablespoon of olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bring two opposite ends of the foil up together and then fold down. Seal other two edges. Place in the oven, and roast for 45-1 hour until garlic is soft. Once you remove the garlic turn the oven up to 550 degrees and place pizza stone in the oven. Heat for 20-30 minutes.
  2. Remove roasted garlic from skin and place in a mini food processor or blender. Add remaining tablespoon of olive oil and salt. Blend until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Roll dough out to desired shape (this time I made two rectangular pizzas), place dough on pizza wheel covered in cornmeal (so that the dough slides off easily).
  4. Cover with roasted garlic spread. Place potatoes around pizza. Sprinkle with half the cheddar cheese, followed by the sausage and sliced onions. Cover with remaining cheddar and parmesan. Drizzle with a little bit of olive oil.
  5. Slide pizza into oven and cook for 8-10 minutes until brown and bubbly. Serve immediately.
