I love this pizza. It's a little bit unusual but then most of the best things in life are. I like that is doesn't have the classic tomato base but it still has lots of great flavour. You could by all means make a deep pan version of this pizza but I feel the crispiness of a thin base is what's needed here. Also, if you like your food extra stinky chuck on some minced raw garlic before cooking. This is something I often do.

These quantities give you enough for two 25cm thin based pizzas. I started with raw potatoes for this one but you could just as easily use up some left over roast potatoes. I used my trusty cast iron skillet as the cooking pan for the pizza. It is the perfect size for a single serve pizza.

ohhhhh.... NOM!!
Good combination of toppings! I thought I was the only American who likes potato on pizza. I usually do it real simple with olive oil, herbs, garlic, potato and parmesan but this looks delicious. I'll try it soon.
