My Mexican potato latkes were such a hit I knew I had to make one more latke recipe before Hanukkah season was kaput. And I had been wanting to make a Jew pizza, so thought a latke inspired za (great scrabble word) would be the perfect combo! I took all the key latke components- potatoes, sour cream, apples and oil and put then all together into a tasty pie. The result? Totally awesome!
—What Jew Wanna Eat
- 2cups bread flour
- 1envelope pizza yeast
- 1.5teaspoons sugar
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 2/3cup very warm water
- 3tablespoons olive oil
- 3-4waxy potatoes
- 2golden delicious apples
- 2teaspoons salt (1/2 teaspoon for apples, 1 1/2 for pizza)
- 1tablespoon sugar
- 3tablespoons olive oil (one for apples, two for pizza)
- 1garlic clove, minced
- 8ounces sour cream
- 6ounces goat cheese
- 2tablespoons fresh rosemary, chopped
- Preheat your oven to 450 degrees F. First up, make your dough. Mix together 1 cup flour, yeast, 1.5 teaspoon sugar and 3/4 teaspoon salt in a bowl. Then add 2/3 cup warm water and 3 teaspoons oil and combine.
- Add in flour a little at a time and knead until you have a ball (you may not use all the flour), and then knead four more minutes.
- To cook your potatoes put them into cold water and bring to a boil. Your potatoes are cooked when you can insert a knife and it comes out clean. When cooled, slice them into 1/8 inch slices.
- Then slice your peeled apples into 1/8 inch slices as well. Then mix your apples with 1 tablespoon sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1 tablespoon oil.
- Now it’s time to build your za! Roll out your rough on a pizza stone or pan covered with parchment paper. You can make a crust if you like (I liked). Then drizzle with olive oil.
- Layer potatoes and apples on your dough, alternating one of each. Drizzle with more oil and sprinkle with minced garlic. Top with sour cream, salt, pepper, chopped rosemary and dollops of goat cheese. Bake for 20 minutes until the crust is brown and the cheese is bubbly and delicious.
