The Cooking Corner - Potato, cheese and courgette pizza



When I was growing up, we always had a Sunday Roast on a Sunday evening, no matter where we had been or what we were doing, my mom always managed to pull of a roast. I'm not sure how, it take me all day to deal with a roast dinner!

Here we have sort of fallen into the tradition on pizza on a Sunday evening, it's quick and easy and doesn't matter if we are out all day. I like to try new recipes, so here is out latest, adapted from a Jamie recipe.

Potato, Cheese and Courgette Pizza





Recipe: (makes 3 personal sized pizza)


For the dough, I admit, I am lazy and throw it all in the bread maker, set it to pizza dough and leave it to it. If you are doing it by hand, mix the dry ingredients together (except yeast) first then add the wet and mix together until all combined. Let rest somewhere warm, then knock back, separate into 3 chunks and roll out, place on lined baking trays.

  • 100g strong white flour
  • 100g wholewheat bread flour
  • 50g semolina flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 7g dry yeast
  • 1/2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 165ml warm water (add yeast to this if you are hand mixing)
For the topping. 
  • 125 g boiled new potatoes
  • 1tsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium onion thinly sliced
  • shake of dried basil
  • 100g thinly sliced cheese
  • 200g courgette, slice with a veg peeler

Heat the oven to 250deg C

Heat a frying pan with the olive oil in it. Then add the garlic and onions, cook through until golden. Add the potatoes and mash into the onion and garlic. Season and add the basil. Turn off the heat.

Spoon the potato mix over the bases then add a layer of sliced cheese and finally the courgette on the top. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt, then pop in the oven.

The original recipe said 7 - 10 minutes but ours need 15 mins, so keep and eye on them!



Really tasty and a good way to use up left over spuds! Also a great recipe for anyone who doesn't like tomatoes.

If you have a great pizza recipe let me know in the comments, always on the look out for new things to try!
