POTATO PIZZA



All along I have baked regular pizza topped with tomato based sauce and looking for something simple without any meat or cheese so this recipe is really fits my requirement. It uses simple ingredients and the main item is potato which must be sliced paper thin using a mandolin if you have.

Have sprinkled  little bit of chili flakes but this is optional. Despite its simplicity, it turned out amazing and tasty. My children gave this pizza  the thumbs- up  and we intend to bake them often.

POTATO PIZZA
Yield    :    2 - 12 in pizza

3 C  all purpose flour
2 tsp rapid rise yeast
3  TB oil
1 tsp salt
1 C plus 2 TB lukewarm water
1/4 C  olive oil for applying on top

FILLING

2 large potato thinly sliced
1 tsp salt
3 TB olive oil
2  onion sliced
salt and pepper
2 tsp fresh/ dried rosemary
100g  parmesan / mozzarella  cheese (optional)

METHOD

Place water, yeast and salt in a mixing bowl. Stir and mix in flour until a soft dough is formed.  Knead by hand for 10 minutes or use your stand mixer. Place dough in an oiled and covered bowl, let rise for 2 hours.

Slice potato thinly using mandolin or sharp knife, Place in a bowl, sprinkle salt and cover with water for 1 hour. Drain and pat dry. Combine potato, olive oil, salt. black pepper,  rosemary  and onion  in a bowl.

Preheat oven @ 190 C. Divide dough into 2 balls. Roll out into round and place onto baking sheet. Lightly coat with olive oil,  cover with potato slices  and cheese (if using).  Bake for 15 minutes until the edges are brown. Serve hot.
