Pizza night

I had tennis tonight so I wanted something that my husband could eat early that would hold until I got home.  I went with one of our favorites.  And I was able to read Samantha’s letter Q book while I ate my dinner!

Pizza with Caramelized Leeks

  • 1 TB Butter
  • 5 – 6 Leeks, washed thoroughly and julienned
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 3 shallots, thinly sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 3/4 cup Light Jarlsberg cheese shredded
  • 1 prepared pizza crust
  • 1 tsp dried thyme

Preheat oven to 450.

Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat.  Melt butter and add leeks, water and sugar.  Boil, then reduce heat and simmer covered until leeks have browned (15 – 20 minutes).  Stir occasionally and watch to make sure that leeks don’t burn.  You want them browned and caramelized.  Add shallots and garlic and cook 3 – 5 minutes.

Top pizza crust with leek mixture.  Arrange tomatoes on pizza and sprinkle with cheese and thyme.  Bake on pizza stone about 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and pizza is hot.

I love to cook and love to eat. I work full time and have a family so managing good meals during the week requires organization. I'm hoping to share my weekly menu plans and recipes to make things a little easier for those who want to follow along.
