One of our favorite pizza joints here in South Carolina is Mellow Mushroom downtown Columbia. The menu is full of unique varieties that I would have never come up with on my own. The atmosphere is young and hip…a lot of SCU college kids go there…I pretend that I blend right in with them to help me not feel old (minus the fact that I have two little rug-rats attached to my hip!)
A few months ago when my lovely sister and niece came down for a visit and we naturally found ourselves browsing their menu.
She ordered their “Potato Pie”. Ever since then I’ve thought about trying to re-create it at home. Which is what I did tonight, only I couldn’t remember anything that was on it except the potatoes! Go figure! So what I came up with was totally by chance.
I started out with making pizza crust the same way as I had a few weeks ago. This time, however, I only used half of the dough because I wanted the crust to be thin and crisp.
Give this recipe a try some time! It’s a fun twist on every day pizza! Let me know what you think about it!
