Pizza Friday on Saturday

A few things happened last week that led to a procession of pizzas coming out if our kitchen at lunch time today. First, Celi at the Kitchen’s Garden proposed a Pizza Friday (which she has since posted , with photography tips to boot) and that got me thinking that I ought to make that potato pizza that my mom has been wanting. Then I read another post, this time over at Rachel Eats, about Pizza Bianca, with a recipe that I was instantly dying to try.
Which is how I ended up pulling pizza after pizza out of the oven today. We started with the Pizza Bianca because I was curious to see how the dough, which had risen straight out if its bowl in the fridge, would bake.

Then I had to make the requisite pizza with sucuk for Baki.

And my long suffering mother’s potato pizza. We did half potato and half mushroom. It looked pretty going into the oven:

(Those are the last four potatoes from the garden on there, including one lonely blue one.)
And it looked nice on the table:

(That’s my sophisticated pizza cutter off to the side.)
But in the end we ate a little too much pizza and we all dropped into pizza comas. One good thing about too many pizzas, though, is pizza for breakfast!

  1. Potato pizza. So you slice them thinly and put them on raw? or is it already cooked.. I love this idea but like you my potatoes are gone.. sigh..I am never going to make a boring instant pizza base again, from now on I am pizza bianca all the way, as i was kneading the dough it was popping with air, like little balloons, the lightest tatiest base I have even made.. LOVED it . and loved having a piza with you. c

    1. Raw potatoes – I slice them with my deadly mandoline. It’s just then and onions and olive oil and rosemary. I loved that dough too. And when it was resting in between being folded, it was like a living thing, all springy and energetic. Yay for Pizza Friday!

      1. I am not allowed a mandonline.. too much blood in the food!! Surely they make one that will not take off the tips of my fingers.. i will try this pizza though.. I love potatoes! c

      2. I saw on TV (okay, it was the Martha Stewart show) once that there is some sort of glove (chain mail??) that you can wear. A sharp knife and a steady hand might be safer…

    Scissors are the best pizza cutters. It looks like wonderful pizza Bianca – brava and then thank you for remindin me I should make a note about having a big bowl as the dough really does rise Rx

  3. I love the look of your pizzas. I love potato pizza and onion pizza. Both look so good and yes, the best thing to do when making pizza is to make too much so that there’s some left to re-heat for breakfast – such a treat xx
