"We live in an age when pizza gets to your home before the police." -Jeff Arder, Comedian

The refrigerator light goes on...

This recipe is designed to use fresh mozzarella and not the dry American type that pizza joints use. Fresh mozzarella is so rich and melts wonderfully. You’ll love it with the Dill Pesto and potatoes.


 

Pizza with Dill Pesto and Potato

Servings: 1 | Serving size: 1 pizza

Cooking Time: 30 Minutes

This recipe can easily be multiplied, and leftovers are, well, cold pizza. Use the extra dill pesto for sandwiches or pasta dishes.

This recipe also requires making Whole Wheat Pizza Dough and Dill Pesto

Ingredients

Place the water in a stock pot over high heat. Bring to a boil and add the potatoes. Cook the potatoes until slightly tender. Remove and allow them to cool. Slice into rounds about 1/4 inch thick.

Pizza is best baked on a pizza stone but a cookie sheet will work as well. Place the baking stone or cookie sheet in an oven that has been preheated to 500°F.

Using 1/4 of the pizza dough recipe (for each pizza), gently stretch into 8 inch rounds. Don’t work too hard to get a perfectly round shape.

Once the dough is formed, place the pizza dough on a floured peel and spread the pesto over the dough. Top with slices of potato and sprinkle with the mozzarella.

Place the pizza on the heated pizza stone and bake for about 12 – 15 minutes until the crust is golden brown.
