I recently visited New York City for a quick day trip and spent a lot of time visiting some of the best restaurants. I feel like I do a lot of eating when I'm in New York, at least that's paired off with a lot of walking!
My Daughter and I visited a small vegan cafe/bakery called Peacefood Cafe located on 460 Amsterdam on the upper west side. They offer raw & vegan sandwiches, juices, teas, and very yummy desserts. During our visit, I had the Potato Pizza. It was so delicious that I decided to try to re-create it this week for my blog.
While I do not have their recipe I was able to get an ingredient list so that I could wing it. It came out really good but was definitely different especially because when I went to the food store to get the ingredients I forgot the arugula! Big mistake, huge.
Here we go!
What you will need:
2 Medium red potatoes sliced thin
2 Cups of mushrooms (whatever kind you like) diced
15 Kalamata olives pitted and diced
2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
2 Tortillas of your liking
Salt and pepper
½ Tsp dried rosemary
4 Tbsps of chopped walnuts roasted
4-5 Garlic cloves roasted
¼ cup Olive oil
1/8 cup Lemon juice
2 cups of fresh basil
½ cup spinach
salt to taste
Top It Off:
Vegan Cheese (Optional) I did not get cheese when I visited the cafe.
What I need to do:
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.
On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, place sliced potatoes and garlic cloves. Spray with Olive oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and rosemary. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until edges of potatoes are lightly browned.
On a separate baking pan placed chopped walnuts and bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Remove both from oven and set aside.
In a large saute pan heat olive oil. Add mushrooms and olives and cook until mushrooms are softened approximately 5-7 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
To prepare pesto place all ingredients in a food processor or Vitamix and pulse until smooth.
Place the two tortillas on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Spread on the pesto sauce.
Top with the mushroom mixture and then potatoes.
If you wanted to throw the cheese on this is where you do it but it really doesn't need it! Delicious with or without.
Throw that pizza back in the oven for another 10 minutes to crisp it up.
To serve, place fresh arugula on top and slice with a pizza cutter. Dig in ! Like I said, I forgot the arugula on my trip to the food store so in my pictures you will see spinach on top. Do not skip the arugula unless you don't like it. The flavors are amazing together!
