Potato Pizza

Potato Pizza

I first saw the idea for this 'pizza' on a social media web site. I thought it was a great idea to make a pizza crust out of potatoes, so I decided to try experimenting. This is what I came up with. I think the base can be flavoured any way you decide, and topped any way as well.  How much you use of each ingredients depends how how big you want your pizza to be so really how many potatoes you spiralize and how big your grill is.

Ingredients for the Base

8-10 cups Potatoes, spiralized
2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp garlic powder
1 Tblsp chili garlic sauce, more or less to taste, this stuff is HOT
1/2 tsp black pepper 
1 tsp turmeric

Other spices like salt, oregano or basil, optional

Topping Ingredients

Sweet Chili Sauce or Pizza Sauce or BBQ Sauce
Nutritional yeast
Red Onions, sliced fine
Peppers, sliced fine 

Other topping as desired like olives, mushrooms, spinach, broccoli,  etc. , optional


Place spiralized potatoes into a big bowl.

Add the ingredients listed for the mixing up the base and combine well.

Place the potatoes on a preheated grill. I used a George Foreman Grill for this. But any similar type non stick grill with a lid should work.  The base should be thick so that the sauce does not run to the bottom of the potatoes. Close the grill and let it cook until cooked throughout and crispy. Mine took about 24 minutes. 

Cooked spiralized potatoes

Preheat oven to 425 F.

When the potatoes are cooked, transfer to a parchment lined pan.

Top with sauce of choice, I used sweet chili sauce. Sprinkle with nutritional yeast.

Top with remaining chosen ingredients.

Place in oven for 8-10 minutes.

Remove and transfer to a cooling rack.



If making the base ahead of time, be sure to transfer the cooked base off the pan and parchment onto a cooling rack. This way it will stay crispy. When you are ready to top the 'pizza', return to parchment lined pan, top and bake.
