sweet potato, carmelized onions, gorogonzola and pepper sauce pizza

pizza dough
makes one 10" pizza
3 tbs hot water
3 tbs milk
1 1/4 tsp yeast
2 tbs olive oil
1/4 tsp salt
3 tbs whole wheat flour (I sometimes add part flax meal)
5/8 cup flour (plus more for kneading process)
1 small potato cooked and mashed

Mix water and yeast together. In a separate bowl mix milk and potato together. In a separate bowl, mix salt and flours together. Add wet ingredients to flour mixture along with olive oil. I use a mixer with the kneading attachment to knead my dough but roughly you want to knead for about 10 minutes. Add more flour as needed so that the dough is not sticking to you or the sides of the bowl. Then let rise for an hour and half so that it doubles in size.

Preheat oven to 500 with pizza stone in oven

pepper olive oil sauce
1 tbs cracked pepper
6 tbs olive oil
2 garlic cloves
1/2 tsp salt

Heat 3 tbs olive oil with the cracked pepper in pan to medium heat. Let simmer for 10ish minutes then strain the olive oil from the pepper. Then mix together a fresh 3 tbs of olive oil, garlic and salt with the strained pepper.

Pizza toppings
pepper olive oil
1 sweet potato sliced and baked
1 red onion chopped and caramelized
3/4 cup fennel sausage
top with gorgonzola, mozzarella and parmesan

I make mine on parchment paper for easy transfer and cleanup. Bake on pizza stone for 10 minutes then check it will probably take 15 but every oven is a little different.
