"I can't remember where this came from. I think it may have been Women's Day magazine. It is truly unique and a creative savory alternative to regular pizza. We love it and consider it a special treat 2 or 3 times a year. "

Step 1

Slice the potatoes as thin as you possibly can.

Step 2

In a bowl, combine the egg, salt and pepper.

Step 3

Mix in the potato slices until they are all evenly coated.

Step 4

On a lightly oiled cookie sheet or pizza pan, layer the potato slices so that they overlap and cover the pan. This is your pizza crust.

Step 5

Bake the potatoes at 350 for 10 minutes or until you see them start to lightly brown. Remove and let cool.

Step 6

In the mean time, saute the bacon until crisp and crumble into 'bacon bits'.

Step 7

Boil the spinach for 5-10 minutes, drain and let cool.

Step 8

Now it's time to make your pizza!

Step 9

First, layer the cooled potato 'crust' with the spinach.

Step 10

Now cover the spinach with the Ricotta cheese.

Step 11

Add the remainder of the ingredients in the order that suits you and bake in the oven at 350 for 10-15 minutes or until the mozzarella cheese has melted.

Step 12

Enjoy this unique, savory meal!

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



I love the potato "crust"! It came out nice and crispy. I did have to sub the bacon with cooked chicken as the store in our wee town did not have any slab bacon and I don't eat the stuff wrapped in a plastic wrapper. I also sauteed the onion and garlic, and made my own ricotta. This will be made again! Thank you for sharing.
