Preparation steps

Leek and Potato Flatbread preparation step 1

Crumble the yeast in approximately 3/4 cup lukewarm water and dissolve while stirring.

Leek and Potato Flatbread preparation step 2

Combine yeast mixture with flour, 3 tablespoons canola oil and 1 teaspoon salt in a mixing bowl. Knead with the dough hook of a hand mixer until smooth, cover with a clean kitchen towel and let rise until the dough has doubled in size, about 1 hour.

Leek and Potato Flatbread preparation step 3

Meanwhile, peel the potatoes, rinse, dice, place in a pot with enough salted water to cover potatoes and cook for about 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, drain and let cool slightly.

Leek and Potato Flatbread preparation step 4

While the potatoes are cooking, halve leek lengthwise, rinse thoroughly under running water and cut into thin rings.

Leek and Potato Flatbread preparation step 5

Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a pan and cook the leeks over medium heat until the liquid completely evaporates, 8-10 minutes. Put leeks in a bowl and add the cooled potatoes.

Leek and Potato Flatbread preparation step 6

Thoroughly mix cream cheese, sour cream, and eggs with a hand mixer. Fold mixture into leeks and potatoes in the bowl and season to taste with salt, pepper, and caraway seeds.

Brush a baking sheet with the remaining oil. Put the dough on sheet and spread with floured hands to the edges of the sheet.

Distribute leek and potato mixture on top of the dough. Sprinkle with pumpkin seeds and bake in a preheated oven at 350°F on the middle rack for 30-35 minutes. Cut into pieces while still hot or lukewarm and serve.
