Dish | Potato, Red Onion & Rosemary Pizza + Salami, Mushroom, Kalamata & Red Onion Pizza

Pizza! It's so exciting, I know. I wouldn't say San Francisco is necessarily considered a pizza city, but with the amount of incredible grocery stores and farmers markets, it's too easy to make your own. Ryan and I typically order from our local favorite - Patxis Pizza - here in Hayes Valley, but yesterday I decided to take a stroll in the gloomy weather to the Mission District to hit up my favorite market for pizza ingredients. Bi-Rite Market is a San Francisco gem! I only recently started making pizzas at home and it is my favorite one stop shop. They sell freshly made whole wheat and regular pizza dough for $3!

POTATO, RED ONION & ROSEMARY PIZZA

Whole wheat pizza dough
4-6 unpeeled yukon gold potatoes, sliced into very thin rounds
1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 large garlic gloves, minced
2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
1/4 teaspoon chili flakes
1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese (preferably old fashion if you can find it)

1  |  Preheat oven to 500°F (temperature varies depending on dough). Heat oil in heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add red onion and potato slices in single layer and sauté until just tender, about 5 minutes. Cool briefly.

2  |  Spread dough on rimmed baking sheet. Scatter onion and potato slices over dough, leaving a small border. Sprinkle with rosemary, garlic, and chili flakes. Sprinkle with cheese to cover.

3  |  Bake pizza until crust is crisp and cheeses melt, about 8 minutes (time varies depending on dough). Using a metal spatula, loosen crust from sheet. Slide onto platter or board and serve.

SALAMI, MUSHROOM, KALAMATA OLIVE & RED ONION PIZZA

Pizza dough (we tried the regular dough for this one)
1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
6 oz mushrooms (your choice), sliced
6 slices salami (use as much or as little as you like)
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup tomato sauce
1/4 teaspoon chili flakes
1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese (preferably old fashion if you can find it)

1  |  Preheat oven to 500°F (temperature varies depending on dough). Heat oil in heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add red onion and sauté until just tender, about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and sauté another 3 minutes. Cool briefly.

2  |  Spread dough on rimmed baking sheet. Spread tomato sauce over dough, leaving a small border. Place salami slices over sauce. Scatter onion and mushroom slices over salami. Sprinkle with olives and chili flakes. Sprinkle with cheese to cover.

3  |  Bake pizza until crust is crisp and cheeses melt, about 8 minutes (time varies depending on dough). Using a metal spatula, loosen crust from sheet. Slide onto platter or board and serve.
