We’re making pizza from mashed potato. Awesome!
Potatoes and pizza are as good a match as polar bears in the Sahara, right? Wrong! These two foods actually complement each other very well when they're prepared properly. If you're still not convinced, then you should give our delicious Potato Pizza Roll a try — it's a hearty and simple recipe that combines the best aspects of German and Italian cuisine. Get cooking...
- 3⅓ lb potatoes (boiled)
- 35 slices of pepperoni
- 7 oz flour
- 7 oz mozzarella (grated)
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp basil (dried)
- 1 tsp oregano (dried)
- 2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
1. Lay out the pepperoni slices on some baking parchment in a rectangular shape (5 rows of 7 slices).
2. Next, mix the boiled potatoes with the seasoning, eggs, and flour. Press down on the potatoes with a fork or a potato masher until you have a nice even mixture.
3. Carefully spoon the mashed potato onto the pepperoni slices and sprinkle mozzarella on top.
4. Now carefully roll up your pepperoni & potato rectangle with the help of the baking parchment. Be careful not to roll the baking parchment up with it though. It's best to place a second piece of baking parchment underneath first, so you can now place the Potato Pizza Roll onto a baking tray. Place the roll in a convection oven set to 360°F for 20 minutes.
The Potato Pizza Roll is not just a winner when it comes to the taste — it's simple preparation is great for beginners in the kitchen. What's not to like?
