Potato Pizza

The inspiration for this recipe came from visiting Manjula’s website, where she was hosting a recipe contest for September 2010. The challenge was to create a recipe using potatoes. Intrigued, I decided to participate if I could come up with a unique idea.
I pondered all week, brainstorming beyond the usual curry or sabji. I scoured Google for new potato recipes and stumbled upon an interesting blog post: "pizza with potato?" I thought, "Why not?" This led me to try the recipe with my twist. Here is my innovative take on it, which I’m excited to share with you. A low-fat snack recipe that is surely going to be loved by all.

Potato Pizza



  • 3 large and even sized Baking Potatoes/Russet potatoes
  • 3 multi colored Bell Peppers (I used Red, yellow and green), chopped finely
  • 1 small Onion chopped
  • 2 tbsp Capers
  • 1/4 cup parsley chopped
  • 3/4 cup Pasta sauce (used sweet basil pasta sauce)
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp Black pepper powder
  • 1/4 tsp Red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup Fresh mozzarella cheese grated/ Fontana cheese (I used Fontana cheese)
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil



  • Boil the potatoes in pressure cooker for 2 whistles or until they are cooked almost 3/4th. Cool the potatoes and peel off the skin and cut into 3, one (1) inch slices on the lengthier side. Cut thin slice on the edge slices so that they have a flat bottom.
  • Preheat the oven for about 400F.
  • In a bowl mix 3/4 tbsp olive oil, salt and pepper. Whisk it well. Spread this mixture on the potatoes so that they coat well and arrange them on a baking sheet and bake them for about 10 mins.
  • Meanwhile, in a bowl add the chopped onions, chopped bell peppers, capers, salt, pepper and parsley, crushed red pepper flakes and remaining olive oil and mix them well. (you can add any toppings of your choice....like creating your own pizza)
  • Take the potatoes out of the oven, spread the pasta sauce evenly on top of the potatoes, place the mixed veggies on top so that it covers all the pasta sauce,
  • Add some Fontana/mozzarella cheese on top and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and pop this into oven for more 5-7 mins or until the cheese it melted.
  • Enjoy the yummy pizza without all the fat and meat!


Additional Notes
  • You can also broil it for about 2 mins to get a light brown crust on top of the cheese and veggies.
