Potato Pizza Recipe


    2 cups of All purpose Flour
    2 Tsp Baking Powder
    1/2 Tsp Salt
    2 cups of Potatoes, Diced
    1/2 cup of low fat margarine


If the potatoes are hot, mash them, the stir in the margarine until it has melted and is distributed evenly throughout the potatoes. Leave to cool.

Sift the flour and baking powder, and salt and stir into the mashed potato to form a soft dough.

If the potatoes are cold, mash them without adding the margarine. Sift the flour and baking powder and salt into a bowl.

Rub in the margarine with your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine bread crumbs, then stir the flour and margarine mixture into the mashed potatoes to form a soft dough.

Either roll out or press the dough into a 12" round on a lightly greased cookie sheet or pizza pan, pushing up the edge slightly all around to form a ridge before adding the topping of you choice.

This potato base is rather tricky to lift before it is cooked, so you will find it much easier to handle if you roll it out directly onto the cookie sheet.

Bake at 400 degrees F/200 degrees C for 20-25 minutes. The top crust will not get very brown. To verify if crust is done lift edge of crust, bottom should be browned. Cut in to 8 slices. Enjoy!!

If the dough is not required for cooking immediately, cover it with plastic wrap and chill it for up to 2 hours.
