Sorry Leethebard: had not looked at this thread for awhile. What I was saying is that people in Italy probably know something about Pizza. It was a defense of the whole potato concept.

      I had a hankerin' for some tater pizza tonight and (for once) actually remembered to take a few pics. It was pretty darn good if I do say so myself. pb

      Here's a 18 oz. dough ball made with 2/3 King Arthur Bread Flour and 1/3 KA All-Purpose Flour - 8 oz. shredded Polly-O mozz (1/2 whole milk and 1/2 part skim) - Penzey's garlic salt - good quality evoo - 1 oz. each grated Parmigiano Reggiano and Pecorino Romano - 2 Red Bliss potatoes sliced thin on a mandoline and blanched for about 2-3 minutes



      Assembled with the addition of a few sliced black olives.



      Hot out of a 550 oven. Cooked for about 8 minutes



      Somewhat out of focus (upskirt) shot

        Porkbeats,
        You're a pro! That looks great...similar to what I've had in Italy...Might I suggest rosemary sprinkled on top..and some course ground black pepper! Also good with shoestring style potatoes

          I took your suggestion and reheated the remaining 1/3 with the addition of some rosemary and some fresh ground pepper. Very good. It added some missing "zip". Thanks, pb

              At "Crazy Doughs" in Harvard square they have a :

              "Potato Bacon Cheddar A sauce less pie topped with mozzarella,
              seasoned red bliss potato, smoked bacon, finished with scallions and
              freshly shredded cheddar. Best served with Ranch dressing on top
              or on the side. A real satisfier. "

              It is really good

                  Pizzeria Uno has a potato skin pizza appetizer that is fantastic! Although it's not exactly the potato pizza everyone is talking about, if you are ever at pizzeria uno, try it! It's a deep dish crust filled with mashed red potatoes with bacon, sour cream and cheese on top. I think they even sell it in the supermarket. I know I bought one at BJ's awhile ago. When I go to Uno's I usually order it as a meal just for myself.

                    Looks great porkbeaks. I had never thought about a potato pizza before. I may have to give it a try soon. True, I am running out of ideas to try.

                      I just visited family in Italy and had potato pizza. I was in a tiny mountain village called Atina. When I first saw the pizza I thought it was covered with yellow squash, but it was just very yellow thin slices of potato. Delicious! If I knew how to upload a picture, I would.

                              I used to get a pie know as the Brooklyn Pie in a little shop in Huntington (north shore Long Island) Potato chunks kinda like home fries.....not as browned....onion, bacon and mozzerella....rosemary and olive oil...I would kill for one of those.

                                  I use to order from a local guy who unfortunately closed several years ago. He made a pizza with a ton ( 3 inches) of mashed potatos, bacon, cheddar. It was so good. He used a garlic butter sauce as the base.


                                  Seems to me there was a pizza joint in Lebanon, OH a few years ago that made a very similar style pizza that was quite good.
