Leek, Bacon and Goat Cheese Pizza

For Pizza Crust:

Use Caitie’s Chez Panisse Inspired Pizza Dough

For the toppings:

  • 4 leeks, white and light green parts only
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 4 pieces bacon
  • 1/4 cup cream
  • 4 ounces fresh goat cheese
  • olive oil
  • salt to taste
  1. Clean the leeks by slicing them lengthwise and running them under water until all the layers are clean. Roughly chop into 1 inch pieces.
  2. In a large skillet, melt the butter. Add the leeks, and cook over medium heat until they start to soften.
  3. Add the wine, and cook until absorbed. Add the cream, and cook until absorbed. Salt to taste and remove from heat.
  4. Meanwhile, chop the bacon into bite sized pieces and fry until cooked but not too crisp (it cooks further in the oven).
  5. Brush each pizza crust with olive oil. Arrange the leeks, the cooked bacon, and crumbled goat cheese over the top of each pizza.
  6. Bake at 500 degrees 15 minutes.
