Potato Pizza

My first and only experience of a cheese-less potato topped pizza was more than five years ago with a cousin. When he ordered it, I was very skeptic and doubtful of pizzas without cheese. But I still remember how awesome it tasted and that we ordered another one and took it home for next day’s breakfast.

This week, my theme for the Blogging Marathon is -One vegetable three ways where I will be cooking 3 different dishes with the same vegetable ie potato. I wanted to try out some locally special vegetables but then it is the half yearly break for my daughter from school and potatoes simply had to play a dominant part of the menu these two weeks. That’s when I remembered this potato pizza and thought of giving it a shot. It’s simply divine and a must try!

Makes 2 pizzas

WHAT WE NEED

Pizza dough      See here for ingredients and methodology

For toppings

Potatoes, medium size                       3-4

Onion, medium                                     1

Olive Oil                                                   3 tbsp

Salt & Pepper

WHAT TO DO

  • Combine water and 4-5 tsp of salt in a large bowl
  • Peel the potatoes and slice very thin
  • Add the sliced potatoes to the salted water and set aside for 40-50 minutes
  • Preheat the oven to 200C
  • Grease a baking tray
  • Divide the pizza dough into 2 parts
  • Spread one part of the dough on the tray with your oiled fingertips
  • If holes form, then pinch back the dough together and continue
  • Drain the potatoes and press out as much water as possible with your hands and paper towels
  • Thinly slice the onion and add it to a bowl with olive oil and pepper
  • Add the potatoes to this mixture and toss well to coat
  • Spread the toppings on the dough ensuring there is additional toppings around the edges since the edges tend to cook faster
  • Sprinkle little salt over the toppings
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes till the topping starts to turn golden brown and the crust is browned
  • Once it’s cooled slightly, cut into squares
  • Enjoy!
