Potato Pizza

Potato Pizza

Whenever I think about trying a new recipe for dinner or creating something new for my blog, I typically ask myself a few questions…

  • Does it include my favorite foods — pizza, pasta, potatoes, vegetables, cheese, beef?
  • Is it something new?
  • Will my husband or kids eat this?
  • Does it go with wine?  (this question is a must:)

And if I can answer yes to most of these questions, I will try it!

That is how I came to try this Potato Pizza recipe.  You don’t often think pizza and potatoes going together right?  But when you add the other ingredients like garlic, cheese and rosemary — it’s surprisingly good!

Potato Pizza

The star of this recipe is, of course, the potato. You will need several Yukon Gold potatoes.

Potato Pizza

Peel the potatoes and boil in a pot of salted water.

While these are cooking, preheat your oven to 450 degrees. It’s best to have a granite pizza stone to make your pizza. You want something like this pizza stone.

When the potatoes are soft, you will break apart and put in a bowl.

You don’t need to cut the potatoes evenly. You want it to break apart so the chunks of potatoes are different sizes.

Next you will need to prepare the pizza crust. You can make your own dough or pick up store bought dough. For this pizza, I bought a ready made dough that was in the shape of a rectangle.

When you are shaping the dough, make sure you have flour on your cutting board.

You will then transfer it to your pizza peel. This time you want to put a little corn meal on the peel and on the pizza stone. This will keep the dough from sticking.

Time to prepare the garlic spread. You will first roast your garlic like this.

Then squeeze the softened garlic into a mixing bowl.
