Pizza #17: Kentucky

Did anyone else’s spring break plans completely change last week due to the random winter storm that’s been sweeping across the states?? We were anticipating a nice visit from my brother and his girlfriend over the weekend, but sadly did not get to enjoy their company after all because this happened::imageOf course if was gone about as quickly as it came. Talk about weather that can’t make up it’s mind!!

While we didn’t get to enjoy time with my brother, we DID get to enjoy another pizza night.We made a game night out of it with some friends and Tommy’s sister and brother-in-law. I love sharing pizza night with family and friends!!

We made a few pizzas for the evening, one of which was inspired straight from Kentucky: Pollatate.  Any guesses for what toppings were used??

If you guessed chicken and potatoes, nice job smarty pants!2013-03-22 18.02.08This Pollatate pizza is found in Louisville’s “Boombozz Pizza and Taphouse” and is topped with…Chicken and Potatoes.  To be more specific, the crust is drizzled with rosemary olive oil, then topped with chicken breast, red onions, roasted potatoes, and Asiago and Mozzarella cheese.

We baked our chicken with a drizzle of olive oil, and sprinkled with rosemary and garlic and a little black pepper.  Once baked, we shredded the chicken in order to top on the pizza.  Our potatoes were sliced and tossed also in an olive oil, rosemary and garlic, black pepper, basil, oregano mixture, and broiled in our oven until soft on the inside, but crispy golden-brown on the outside.  We substituted a sweet yellow onion for the red onion. And then being the cheese lovers we are, we went above and beyond the Asiago-Mozzarella duet.  We opted for a mixture of Mozzarella, Provolone, Parmesan, Romano, Fontina, and Asiago.2013-03-22 17.42.43The results: warm, cheesey, comforting goodness. Think Sunday dinner with the family. Yes. Please!

Don’t be scared off by carb-overload here.  Just go make this pizza and enjoy.

Okay?
