When I first graduated from college I lived in the Haight Ashbury neighborhood of San Francisco. Other than the fact that I could never find a parking spot, I loved my little neighborhood. I was about an 8 minute walk from my gym in Cole Valley. I had several natural food stores within a short bike or walk, and lots and lots of yummy take-out a mere block away. Quite different from today living in the mountains in Vermont on a dead end dirt road!
One of my favorite places to grab dinner was a pizza place right on Haight street. They always had a bunch of ready made pizzas with all sorts of toppings, but I only had eyes for their potato pizza. That’s the inspo for the Potato Rosemary White Pizza recipe I have for you today today.
The fact that it is made with only a few ingredients that I almost always have on hand, a ball of pizza dough, herbs, garlic, potato and a block of cheddar cheese means that it is almost as quick and convenient as walking a block!
In addition to the cheddar cheese, I also included some Parmesan cheese for even more cheesy flavor. The cheese, not only adds flavor, but it also adds a convenient source of protein for busy nights. Each slice of this potato pizza has 8 grams of protein! And you know I love my protein! Which means this pizza makes a convenient vegetarian dinner for weeknights!
