Fast & Easy Dinner: Leek, Potato, and Fontina Tart

Refrigerated pizza dough is a great item to always have on hand. You can make instant pies with leftovers or even use the dough to make an entirely different dish. This recipe takes pizza dough and turns it into a tart crust. The crust is filled with a mashed potato, leek, and cheese mixture before being baked in a hot oven. The final result is a tart that is quick, scrumptious, and filling. This dish would also make a delicious addition to an informal brunch. To check out the vegetarian recipe from, please
