1 cup warm water
Pinch of sugar
1 package active dry yeast
3 cups all-purpose flour (1 cup of which can be whole wheat)
2 tsp. Kosher Salt
2 Tbl. Olive Oil
Pour water into a medium size bowl. Add sugar and sprinkle yeast over the top. Let sit in a warm spot until the mixture is bubbly and active, about 8 minutes.
Combine flour and salt and then add to yeast mixture. Add olive oil and mix until blended. Transfer onto lightly floured board and knead 10 to 12 times or until dough is smooth and elastic. Add additional flour if mixture is too sticky. Shape the dough into a ball. Transfer dough to a greased bowl. Turn dough to coat. Cover with a towel and leave in a warm place until dough has doubled in size – approx. 1 hour.
Punch dough down and knead 3-4 times. Form one large ball, ready to use for cookie sheet.

2 tsp. Rosemary
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 Tbl. Olive Oil
Preheat oven to 475 degrees.. Roll out pizza dough on a lightly floured surface to form an 11-inch square. Transfer to a cookie sheet or pizza pan, lightly dusted with cornmeal.
Arrange the mozzarella over the dough. Scatter half of the Parmesan cheese over the pizza. Arrange the potato slices in overlapping rows over the cheese. Scatter the leeks over top. Sprinkle with remaining Parmesan and rosemary. Sprinkle with salt and pepper; drizzle with olive oil.
