Total time: 150 mins | Serves: 2-4


  • 2 teaspoons rapid-rising yeast
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt
  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 ½ cup warm water, divided
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • You can also use your favorite store-bought pizza dough
  • 6-7 little white or red potatoes
  • 2 bratwurst (remove casings), 3-4 large shallots, about 2 cups, sliced
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons white cooking wine
  • ½ - ¾ cup heavy cream
  • 1 apple (Gravenstein, Gala, Empire or Granny Smith), thinly sliced

    1. Preheat oven to 475 degrees, with pizza stone if using one.
    2. Steam potatoes for 7-10 minutes, then remove from heat to cool. Don’t cook them completely; they should have a slight hardness in center once sliced.

    4. Sauté shallots in butter with a pinch of salt and pepper for 3-5 minutes on medium heat until caramelized. Add wine and deglaze pan.

Add more cream for desired thickness; remove from heat and set aside., Thinly slice potatoes and apples., Divide dough into 2 equal balls. Roll out each dough ball and transfer to a baking sheet or pizza pan sprinkled with cornmeal or flour so the dough doesn’t stick. Lightly brush dough with olive oil. Spread creamy shallots evenly onto crust, leaving about ½”-1” from border.
    6. Add cheese, apples, potatoes, and sausage. Transfer pizza to oven, either onto the hot stone or in pizza pan.
    7. Bake 10-15 minutes until crust is brown and cheese is melted.
