This is the perfect pizza for anyone who can’t live without seasoned, roasted potatoes. Because potatoes are the star of this pizza! The only toppings are a little garlic and some spices mixed with olive oil, thinly sliced onion, and lots and lots of potatoes. Like, I used 3/4lb. of potatoes on one pizza kind of a lot.
No denying it, man. First roll of the pizza cutter and I was in love. The crust is made with baking powder, so it’s super-thin and flaky, not puffy like yeast-based dough. That makes it very delicate both in texture and flavor, so it doesn’t overwhelm the toppings. Because you don’t want to overwhelm a roasted potato. I’m seriously tempted to make the full recipe (which turns out 2 pizzas), cut them up small for appetizers, and bring them to the next church luncheon. I’ve no doubt it would disappear in a heartbeat.
This is another case of simple food being awesome food. Simple and tasty main dishes need simple and tasty sides so, while the pizza was cooking, I got out a bowl and threw some veggies at it until I had a salad. If you don’t have parsley on hand, any fresh herbs with a light flavor will do.
