Step 1: Preheat oven

Arrange the oven rack in the lowest position of the oven. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Brush 1 teaspoon oil on the bottom of a large baking sheet.

Roll pizza dough out on a floured surface to the size of the baking sheet and transfer it to the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with garlic and rosemary. Top the pizza dough with cheddar.

Arrange the potatoes on top of the pizza. Brush with the remaining 1 teaspoon of oil. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and pepper.

Step 5: Bake pizza

Bake the pizza on the bottom rack until the potatoes are cooked through and the pizza is crispy on the bottom, about 15 minutes. Cool slightly and then slice into 12 pieces. Serve hot.
