I was in the mood for a veggie pizza, but we had no veggies suitable for a pizza. I scoured the pantry and came up with potatoes and thought, "Why not?"
I wouldn't normally post something so haphazardly thrown together, but this turned out so good, I had to share it.
The crust is thin and crispy, but not too thin and crispy and the flavors were spot on.
Anyways, make it you must.
I think I was channeling Yoda just then. Crazy delicious pizza will scramble your mind like that.
Perfect Potato Pizza
For the dough:
1 cup flour
1/2 packet of yeast
1/2 cup warm water
For the pizza toppings:
1 cooked medium yellow potato (I cooked mine in plastic for 4 min. in the microwave)
3 pieces of precooked bacon
Stir together your flour and salt. In a separate container (I used a measuring cup) mix warm water, sugar and yeast. Mix all the dough ingredients together and let it sit in a bowl sprayed with non-stick spray for about 30 minutes. It won't rise much.
After your cooked potato is cool enough to handle, slice it into thin discs. Cut or tear your bacon into pieces.
Roll out your dough or just kind of stretch it and pat it with your hands onto your sprayed baking sheet.
Top with grated parmesan, sliced potatoes, salt, herb mix, bacon, shredded parm and feta.
Cook at 500 degrees for 12 minutes.
This recipe makes one medium sized pizza that would feed 2 hungry people. Double it if you want to make 2 pizzas.
I had to pair my pizza slices with a salad to justify the carb on carb action going on with this pizza.
