Potato & Proscuitto Pizza – invented due to lack of will to go shopping


Carole's Chatter: Potato & Proscuitto Pizza – invented due to lack of will to go shopping


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.
