Cooking Instructions

For pizza dough:


1

Cook the potato in 2 cups of boiling water for 20 minutes or until very tender. Drain, reserving 1 cup of cooking liquid. Let the cooking liquid cool until very warm (120° to 130°F). Mash the potato, reserving 1 cup. Combine 1/2 cup of flour and the yeast in a large bowl; stir well. Combine the reserved mashed potato, reserved (very warm) cooking liquid, and honey; stir into the yeast mixture. Let stand 10 minutes.


2

Place 3 1/2 cups of flour and the salt in a food processor, and pulse 2 to 3 times. With the processor on, add the potato-yeast mixture and oil through the food chute; process until the dough leaves the sides of the bowl and forms a ball. Process 20 additional seconds. Place the dough in a large bowl coated with cooking spray, turning to coat the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place, free from drafts, for 1 hour or until doubled in bulk.


3

Punch the dough down, and turn out onto a lightly floured surface; knead 3 or 4 times. With floured hands, divide the dough into 6 portions; form each into a ball (the dough will be sticky). Cover the dough; let rest 15 minutes. Pat each ball into a 9-inch circle on large baking sheets sprinkled with the cornmeal.


For topping and assembly:


1

Heat oven to 350°F. Cut each onion into 6 wedges, leaving the root end intact. Combine the onions, oil, salt, and pepper in a bowl; toss well. Divide evenly between two large casserole dishes. Cover and bake for 45 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional hour or until the onions are caramelized; let cool.


2

Raise the oven temperature to 500°F. Spread about 1 tablespoon mascarpone over each prepared pizza crust. Top each crust with one-sixth of the caramelized onions. Sprinkle about 2 tablespoons of gorgonzola and 1 tablespoon of pecans over each pizza. Bake for 8 minutes or until the crusts are crisp and the cheese melts.
