Potato & Prosciutto Pizza

Potato & Prosciutto Pizza by Carole's Chatter
This Potato & Prosciutto Pizza came about through not having much fresh food in the house and not feeling like shopping.  Sometimes necessity does produce a special dish!
I thinly sliced a potato and boiled them in salted water for 2 to 3 minutes – to give the potato a bit of a head start.
I used a pita bread as a base – I brushed both sides of it with olive oil and garlic infused olive oil.
I brushed a mixture of passata (tomato puree) and Dijon mustard over the base.
Then on went a layer of potato slices, some thinly sliced capsicum (bell pepper), a finely diced chilli and some sliced up pieces of leftover prosciutto – you don't need much.
Then on with the cheese a mix of pizza mix cheese and parmesan.  Salt and pepper of course.
Cook your pizza in a hot oven and then sprinkle some sliced tops of spring onions on top (scallions). 
This tasted fab – next time I might put the potato layer a little higher up so you could see some of it in the finished pizza.


  1. This is gorgeous and looks so delicious! You were so creative with your use of leftovers.

  2. Looks yummy! My parents often use pitas for a pizza base too.

  3. That does look delicious! I had a creamy potato and garlic pizza at Barbone in Hyannis, Cape Cod and boy was it tasty.

  4. I love pizza but have never had one with potato. Sounds interesting! Here's My Weekend Cooking

  5. This is a great pizza. Hope you are having a fantastic weekend and thanks so much for sharing this awesome post with Full Plate Thursday.

  6. Looks yummy, Carole! I've never had potato on a pizza, but as much as I like potatoes I'm all about that idea!
