This is a delightfully different pizza from the California Pizza Kitchen Cookbook. It's a bit fussy, but most of the parts could be done in advance and then assembled when you're ready to eat. Use whatever crust you like.

I'd been eying this recipe for awhile and since I finally had potatoes and shallots on hand, decided to give it a try! I already had some chicken grilled (with pesto) so this cut down on prep. I added some of the cheese on top of the potatoes, too. I used Jenny Gentile's Pizza Dough and let it rise again (after it was shaped in the pan). It turned out nice and substantial this way. The flavors are great in the pizza and the garlic shallot butter is a bit different than reg. garlic butter, more mellow in flavor. I could see this pizza being served at CPK! Thanks Pattikay, for posting. Roxygirl

I was feeling VERY over zealous today with cooking. Let me start off by saying this dish does take quite some time to prepare but it was well worth it I feel and so does my mother. I used a bread stick dough recipe for the pizza dough with very good results as well as reduced this recipe by quite some bit just for two people. I made the chicken and potatoes really early this morning as well as made the dough early in the day and put it all in the fridge until I was ready to bake it. So really if you are organized this recipe isnt as scary as it looks. I grilled my chicken on my george forman grill as well as grilled the potatoes too so it wouldnt really take as long. The chicken is so good on its own I plan on making this marinade for the chicken on its own. I really enjoyed the butter also, I plan on making that again and just serving it over veggies or something like that. All in all this is a very diffrent, but excellent pizza that is EXTREMLY filling. I plan on making this again and playing around with the ingredients. Oh yeah, I added some feta and a lot more moz since I kinda am a cheese fanatic lol!
