Dairy and Tomato Free Potato Pizza
All my children are allergic to dairy and tomatoes amongst many others..which doesn’t really make for fun Italian nights! Luckily my oldest and youngest can both eat potato and wheat, and they just love this potato pizza 🙂 I do cheat a bit by using my trusty bread maker, but there is no reason you can’t make it by hand if you are keen. The gluten free camp could use a gluten free base too..but my wheat free Miss 3 is horrifically allergic to potato so I haven’t had to bother trying it out. It’s also a great recipe to get the kids helping in the kitchen, mine love spreading out all the potato, kneading the dough and sprinkling the herbs over.
For the pizza dough: For the topping:
250ml warm water 3 large potatoes
1 3/4 tsp yeast 1 large onion
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar a handful chopped herbs (I use thyme)
1 teaspoon salt sea salt
3 cups High Grade flour olive oil for drizzling
3 T olive oil 3 rashers bacon, chopped
Place the warm water in the bottom of the bread maker bowl, then add all the other dough ingredients. Set onto dough cycle.
When the dough is finished, take out and press onto a tray. If it is really sticky, I wet my hands with olive oil and press it in with my knuckles.
Slice the potato as finely as possible (I use the side of the cheese grater) and spread all over the base thinly. Drizzle olive oil over the top and plenty of sea salt. Add the sliced onion, chopped bacon and the herbs (I just shred them with my fingers as I sprinkle them over).
It should look something like this^. Then bake for around 10 minutes in a 200 degree oven..until the base is quite crunchy and the potatoes are cooked through:)
