  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 leek sliced and cleaned
  • Pinch of salt
  • Homemade or store bought pizza dough
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 ounce parmesan
  • 3 ounces fresh mozzarella torn
  • 1/2 bunch broccolini but into bite sized pieces
  • Fresh basil leaves for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Place a pizza stone in the oven on the center rack, if using.
  2. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. When butter is melted, add leeks and sauté until tender, about 10 minutes. Season with salt, remove from heat and cool.
  3. Sprinkle 12-inch-diameter pizza pan or baking sheet generously with cornmeal. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface to 11-inch round. Transfer to prepared pan.
  4. Mix olive oil and garlic together in a small bowl; brush evenly over pizza dough. Add parmesan and fresh mozzarella. Top with leeks and broccolini.
  5. Bake for 15-18 minutes. Remove from oven. Season with salt and garnish with fresh basil leaves just before serving.

Recipe Notes

You can use homemade or store-bought pizza dough. Feel free to use your favorite recipe if making homemade dough. I happen to love this recipe from The New York Times based on the one from the famed Brooklyn pizzeria, Roberta's. I also love this dough recipe that uses beer from my friend Rebecca of Displaced Housewife! No judgment if you want to use store bought dough, though- it definitely makes the process go by faster and it's ideal for a weeknight pizza dinner!
