Potato Pizza with Rosemary and Anchovies

When Helen from Food Stories  posted a potato pizza yesterday, I suspected it wouldn’t be long until I was making one.  I lasted exactly  5 hours and that included the 1.5 hours to prove the dough.

I last used potato on pizza in the Spring  potatoes and asparagus , moving into autumn this was a homegrown affair ;  potatoes and rosemary from the garden , accompanied by a side of our glutting runner beans sliced, steamed and toss in rapeseed oil, mustard white wine vinegar . The anchovies were a last minute decision and add an extra hit , you can probably add pepperoni or chorizo  but be careful not to add too much or the pizza with become thick and soggy.  This is one pizza that is best crispy.

I can imagine this pizza is great cold for parities.  I say imagine because we demolished it in minutes and I kicked myself for not making an extra one and it is only with considerable restraint I am not making more for dinner at the tonight.

    ooh delicious! If iI’d had some anchovies I definitely would have added them. Your dough looks lovely too so I might give that a try next time.
