Potato Pizza

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.

Assign your two year old to slicing the potatoes ~wink wink 😉 *This is her cheese knife, don't worry she is fine!










Season pre-baked crust with EVOO, oregano, salt, pepper and fresh garlic...while you are really slicing the potatoes, your two year old will sneak Nutmeg out of the spice cabinet and pour it on the crust and insist the daddy loves it!












Single layer the potatoes










Top with shredded cheddar and mozzarella cheese and bacon bits and parsley











Enjoy! *we dipped our slices in sour cream...yum!













Give this recipe a try some time! It’s a fun twist on every day pizza! Let me know what you think about it!

    Nice! I’ll have to remember that place if ever we are down in Columbia again. Maybe on the way to Myrtle with my little guy.
    Speaking of potato pizza, my Hub and I are HUGE fans of it. We first had it in DC and have been lovers ever since. ANother unusual topping? Pasta. Add cooked macaroni or rigatoni type pasta to the top of a pizza. It’s AWESOME!

    Have a great day!
