Purple Potato and Goat Cheese Pizza

This was a really good weekend, and it started off with a really good pizza.

My favorite thing about having 60+ food blogs in Google reader is that I can find inspiration for just about anything. And since I’m pretty much always in the market for new pizza ideas, I get particularly excited when blogs I read have great recipes for it.

One other highlight of this weekend was finally trying Yogurtland!

We went down to Palo Alto on Saturday to have breakfast with friends, and then stumbled across it. I obviously needed a little after-breakfast dessert.

I got a magnificent bowl of cookies and cream and Kona coffee yogurt topped with peanut butter cups, toffee bits, and caramel sauce. The guy working apparently thought two people would be eating it, but nope, it was ALL MINE!

Mike and this small creature hung out with me while I savored every bite and complained for the millionth time about the lack of good frozen yogurt within a 10 mile radius.

I think my favorite thing about this pizza is the color of the potatoes (so pretty!) followed closely by the rosemary and goat cheese combination (hard to beat!).  I’m including my new favorite crust recipe, which is made with equal amounts of white and whole wheat flour.  Normally I make the crust pretty thin, but lately I’ve been making it a little thicker and I LOVE it.

This recipe makes two pizzas.

    I don’t know what I’d do if there weren’t frozen yogurt places nearby.

    Ellie is so cute! I love the little ears on her jacket. The pizza looks delicious too. I love potatoes on pizza; and purple potatoes on pizza are even better.

    Oh, next time you’re in Palo Alto, check out Culture! It’s such an amazing yogurt shop. They make their own frozen yogurt from Strauss Creamery milk and top it with things like actual fresh baked brownies and chocolate chip cookie chunks. Seriously, it tastes homemade. And their hot fudge? So. Good.

    I’m so happy we were all able to enjoy breakfast together over the weekend. Evan and I had a great time. Looking forward to next time. 🙂
