Foodie Friday - Potato Pizza

When my sister went to Florence, Italy several years ago, she told me that one of the most popular pizzas in the area was potato pizza.  Sometimes the potatoes where shredded, sometimes cut in wedges, sometimes diced, sometimes thinly sliced.  It sounded delicious (it's bread and potatoes... what's not to like?!), and while I have ordered it at a couple of restaurants that had it on their menus, I've never made a potato pizza for myself.  Today, while making a batch of French bread, I decided to make one large baguette and a small... wait for it... potato pizza!!  It was extremely delicious.  I wish I would have made more than a small(ish) pizza.  Well, now I know for next time!!

Potato Pizza

Pizza dough, patted into a thin round (I used French bread dough)
1 russet potato, thinly sliced
1/2 an onion, thinly sliced
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, mincned
1 teaspoon sea salt

Preheat oven to 500 F.

Arrange potato slices in concentric circles over pizza dough.

Mix onion slices, oil, rosemary and salt.  Spread over potatoes.  Place on a baking stone, and bake for 25 to 30 minutes.

I love potato pizza! We often make it here and sometimes we add a little bacon and use BBQ sauce on the base. I think I might make this tonight!
Thanks for the great recipe and I love the cranberry one below too!
Best wishes, Natasha.

I loved seeing this type of potato pizza and will definitely give it a try! Where we live in PA, they make something called pagash, which is actually pizza made with seasoned mashed potatoes and onions. It's actually quite good. Nancy
PS: I do really enjoy your blog, and the photos are stellar.

I really need to try this - I've come across it in various places, but never tried it myself. Thanks for the kick in the butt!

Lori, that looks like carb heaven. My favorite.

I made a potato pizza recently, and nothing—absolutely nothing—could've knocked the smile off my face.

Mary Bergfeld said...

Your pictures are getting better and better!. The pizza sounds intriguing. I've never had a potato topping on mine. Time to try something new.

I love making my own pizza and do so often. I usually buy the dough at Whole Foods, it's so much more convenient.
I used to make a potato and rosemary pizza and loved it but forgot all about it til your post. I like the looks of the pizza in the photo and the recipe. I'll give this one a try for sure right after Thanksgiving. Thanks for a great entry.
