Leeky Pizza
Recipe Type: Pizza
Author: Rachel Oberg – De Ma Cuisine
Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 20 mins
Total time: 30 mins
Serves: 2-4
Leeks get caramelized in honey and added to pizza topped with Gruyere cheese.
  • 1 pizza crust (I use my pizza crust recipe)
  • 1 C Gruyere cheese, grated
  • 1/4 C Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 C leeks, chopped in rounds
  • 1-2 T honey
  • 1/4 C walnuts, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1-2 T olive oil
  • smoked sea salt
  • 1 C chicken, cooked and shredded (optional)
  • Dipping Sauce:
  • 1 T spicy brown mustard
  • 1/4 C plain yogurt (Greek or regular)
  • 1/4 C reduced balsamic vinegar
  1. Pre-heat oven to 475F. Cook leeks in a dry pan with honey until caramelized and golden in color. In last 2-3 minutes of cooking, add garlic. While leeks cook, bring 1/2 C balsamic vinegar to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, keeping an eye on it so it doesn’t burn, until it’s thickened and syrupy.
  2. Roll out and bake crust for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and top with: olive oil, smoked sea salt (opt.), half the cheese, chicken (opt.), leeks, walnuts and remaining cheese. Bake an additional 6-8 minutes.
  3. Whisk together mustard, yogurt and balsamic vinegar.
  4. Serve pizza with sauce for dipping.

Would also be good as an appetizer, perhaps without the chicken.
Would be good (with or without the chicken) alongside a pureed soup.
