Organic Baked Potato Pizza RecipeOctober 10, 2008

While time isn’t as much of a crunch now that is is officially the “off season” I’ve been experimenting a lot with new recipes. I’m mainly just looking for something that isn’t Easy Mac that I can trow together quickly after work and still have time to digest and workout without forcing myself to put off actually sleeping until after midnight.
I’m a huge fan of randomly making up recipes on the fly. Usually they turn out pretty decent, but this one turned out really good so I feel the need to share. With that, I give you: Jamie’s Organic Baked Potato Pizza.
I was even able to get home from work at 5:30, make up this recipe, cook it up, shove it down my throat and still have time to digest and make it to spinning at 7:00.
I’ve been getting progressively more crunchy this year, and have been doing more and more shopping at Whole Foods, hence all the organic stuff. It doesn’t really impact the taste (or the price even) but it will make your heart feel a little better for supporting sustainable ethical foods while chowing down on some pizza.
- 1 medium organic potato
- 2 cups shredded organic mozzarella
- Unfrozen organic white pizza dough
- 1 tablespoon Bacon Salt
- fresh basil
- 1 cloves of garlic
- 2 tablespoons light olive oil
- White Flour
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees
- Using flower to keep the dough from sticking to your hands or the counter, slowly stretch the dough into a circle, or square if you can’t figure out where your roommate put the pizza pan.
- Lightly drizzle the dough with olive oil
- Thinly slice the garlic and baked potato and evenly spread over the pizza.
- Go wild with the cheese
- Bake for 15 minutes or until it looks delicious like this:
If you want to keep the organic kick going, try this beer with it: Peak Organic Amber Ale. Freakn’ delicous.
I’m still working on tweaking the recipe, and may try some more peppper, chives instead of basil, adding a little sour cream after baking, or using taco cheese instead of mozzarella.
Let me know if you guys try it out and what you think.
