Potato Pizza (Recipe)

I remembered reading about potato pizza--but until this weekend I'd never tasted it, let alone made it.  I was making a sausage-laden pizza for my husband and son, so I decided to make a little extra dough and give this a whirl.

Without a recipe, I chose ingredients that sounded good to me:  thin slices of potato, olive oil, fresh garlic, shredded Romano cheese, black pepper.

I completely forgot about taking pictures, but my potato pizza looked something like the one in this picture.  And I didn't use a recipe, but you can find a similar one here.

I started with my usual pizza dough (made with bread flour) and stretched the dough fairly thin.  I didn't pre-bake the crust, but with a thicker crust I would.  I simply brushed the crust with EV olive oil, then topped it with thinly sliced potato (one small baking potato for a pizza maybe 9" in diameter) and slivered garlic (3 cloves).  I brushed all of that with more olive oil and added a sprinkle of black pepper and a handful of shredded Romano cheese.  We baked it at 425F until the crust was browned and the potatoes were tender.

My husband and son thought this was just okay.  I liked it a lot, especially as I'd been craving carbs! Does it sound like a recipe you would try?

  2. Oh my goodness, that looks delicious! I love pizza and potatos, but have never heard of them together.

    Also, about the Red Velvet Cookies that I posted on my blog, they stay soft which is what makes them really yummy!

  4. I'd try this for sure. It reminds me a bit of perogie pizza, which has potatoes, but also sour cream and bacon. I love that so I'm thinking this would be yummy too.
