A local pizza place in Richmond makes a potato pizza Alex and I love. We’ve ordered it so many times that it made me wonder if I could recreate it at home. While the local spot uses crème fraîche, that’s not something I typically have in my pantry. So I wanted to create a recipe with basics that I typically have in my fridge. It took a few tries, but I love how this recipe turned out! I should mention that this isn’t a traditional Roman-style potato pizza. This is more of an American white pizza with potato on top.

potato pizza ingredients

Ingredients and Substitutions

  • Pizza Dough– I used this flatbread pizza dough recipe which is easy to make! But if you don’t want to make your own dough, you can also use storebought dough or prepared flatbread.
  • Ricotta– I recommend whole milk or part-skim ricotta cheese. Fat-free ricotta lacks flavor and texture.
  • Olive oil- A little olive oil helps prevent the pizza from drying out and creates a luxurious base.
  • Garlic powder- This helps add flavor to the ricotta cheese.
  • Italian seasoning– This seasoning blend includes rosemary, thyme, oregano, and basil. If you don’t have Italian seasoning in your pantry, substitute with a pinch of each dried herb.
  • Mozzarella- I used shredded mozzarella, but fresh mozzarella works great in this recipe too!
  • Red potato- You want the potato to be very thinly sliced. The pizza cooks fairly quickly so if your slices are too thick, they’ll be crunchy. (And you don’t want crunchy potato slices on your pizza.)
  • Parmesan- A little Parmesan cheese adds salty flavor to finish.

How to Thinly Slice Potatoes

For this recipe, you want the potatoes sliced very thinly. I recommend using a mandoline slicer if you have one. This is an easy way to make thin, uniform slices. You can also use the slicing disk on a food processor or a really sharp knife. (Just take your time to make super thin slices if you’re using a knife!)

The Best Flatbread Pizza Dough

I used my flatbread pizza dough recipe which is simple to make. All you need is flour, yeast, salt, and water. It needs 7-8 hour to rise, so I typically make it in the morning for pizza night. After it rises, you can freeze extra dough balls. When you’re planning your next pizza night, let the frozen dough thaw overnight in the fridge and you’ll have pizza dough ready the next day! If you don’t want to mess with yeast, try my beer pizza dough or my 2-ingredient high protein pizza dough!
