Potato pizza

Caught this recipe on Best Recipes Ever (Canadian Living). She used russet potatoes. It is gluten-free.

That is a very interesting twist on pizza!
Gotta try it!
Thanks!

I'm sorry, she can call it whatever she wants, but that's not pizza

+1. Just because it's flat and round, that doesn't make it a pizza.

That's an interesting twist. I would try it.

For years at our state fair here, there was a vendor who sold potato pizza. It was the epitome of starchy goodness and always a perennial favorite (although I didn't see them this year) but their product was potatoes ON a pizza crust, not a pizza crust made from potatoes.

When DH was a teenager, he was an exchange student in Finland, up near the Arctic Circle, for three weeks. He says they served potatoes morning, noon and night - hashed, mashed, bashed, gashed, you name it He got so tired of potatoes that one day, he asked the mother to make a pizza. He had to describe how to make it. He was so excited. And then - you guessed it - she put potatoes on the pizza! I'm sure he ate his fill when he got home.

It may not be a traditional pizza, but for gluten-intolerant folks (and that is where I posted the link) who struggle with making a gluten-free pizza dough, it is an interesting twist. One could probably do this "crust" with zucchini, sweet potatoes, or carrots. Also, for vegetarians, it is another option. I never said it was pizza. Canadian Living/Best Recipes Ever called it pizza <g>.

I was quoting the copyrighted title of what it was called on the show. But, it did catch your eye so you checked it out. I only thought to share it because DC has a gluten-free forum and thought it might be of interest (also DC vegetarians). And those challenged by making pizza dough. Just a mind stretcher. Scenario: Want pizza, snowed in, don't have yeast/time to make pizza dough--have to feed the woodstove and shovel the driveway, I'm hungry, and I have everything else, including potatoes--maybe this will fill the spot.
