I had one item in mind when a Groupon for Surdyk’s came through my inbox. Duck Confit. This seemingly quite-common creature is quite pricey and we’ve been eyeing it up for a few months now so I knew just what I wanted to do with it. A pizza was made, much like the one we had at Restaurant Nola and much like the one I’ve been thinking about ever since. Because I was getting ready for my trip, I didn’t make my own crust, but opted for a pre-made crust for the sake of convenience. It made the pizza come together all the faster.
Duck Confit Pizza serves 2
- pre-made pizza crust
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- duck confit (1 leg), shredded
- 4 cups arugula
- 1 egg, sunny-side up
- parmesan shavings
- salt & pepper
Pre-heat oven to 450°F. Drizzle with 1 Tbsp olive oil and bake for 5 minutes. Top with duck and bake another few minutes, until duck is hot. Top with arugula, drizzle with oil and sprinkle with salt & pepper. Place the egg on the arugula and sprinkle parmesan shavings over top.
The ingredients are simple, but of the highest quality, making this pizza oh-so-flavorful and definitely unforgettable. Switch out the duck with caramelized onions for a vegetarian version.
