Blog Party #32 - Pizza Party - Proscuitto, Potato and Goat's Cheese Pizza Squares



It's Blog Party time again over at Stephanie's Dispensing Happiness, and this month's theme is Pizza Party. That's right folks - bring along a bite-sized pizza and a matching drink to join the party.


I had recently found this great recipe by Ray McVinnie for proscuitto, potato and goat's cheese pizza from Stuff.co.nz, so Stephanie's choice of party theme gave me the perfect opportunity to try it. I changed it a little by spreading some barbecue sauce on the pizza crust over the egg glaze (I highly recommend doing this with your choice of sauce - it makes the pizza moister), and substituted kumara (sweet potato) for the Agria (huh?) potatoes. For context, this was the pizza before it became Blog Party pizza squares (I use the term "squares" loosely):



Now as everyone knows, beer and pizza makes a great combination. Unfortunately, I didn't have any beer in the house, so I have brought along stout - Guinness nonetheless - to accompany my pizza squares instead:




Thanks to the hostess with the mostest, Stephanie, for hosting Blog Party, and I look forward to the party roundup later in the month.

Boy, you certainly have been a busy bee lately! How do you find the time?

That is a really interesting pizza combination. It looks great! Never had potato on a pizza before. I'll have to give it a try.

Hi Gretchen, it is tasty, but I definitely recommend using the sauce on the base.

Hi Adele, proscuitto's delish, isn't it!

Hi Susan, I was a little unsure until I tried it, but it's actually good on a pizza.

Hi Pixie, please pass your plate!

Wow potatoes, goat cheese, and prosciutto! With these ingredients, I think this must be good. Although I've never had potatoes on a pizza...

I love the pizza. Talking about guiness.
When i had my daughter 16 years back I was breast feeing her.
So when she was 5 months i was going to India to visit my family and my MIL here told me drink guiness it produce lots of milk so you will have no trouble with the baby in the plane.
I never drank anything before, so what do i do drink a whole can of beer you can imagine how drunk i was :-)))

Oh, the goat cheese...my all time fav...but I've never had it on pizza. I think I might have to do this!!! Very soon.

Cakelaw said...

Hey there Maryann, Glad you liked the package - it was fun compiling it.

Hi Jenn, Sending a slice your way ;)

Hi Mary, it is surprisingly good - but I recommend the sauce underneath, because the pottato gets quite crispy.

LOL Happy Cook - what an interesting story. Must tell my girlfriends about the benefits of drinking Guinness.

Thanks Cakespy!
