Why You’ll Love This Recipe For Potato Rosemary White Pizza
One of my all-time favorite places to grab dinner used to be this pizza place a short block from my apartment in San Francisco. My favorite was their potato pizza with paper-thin shaved potato, cheese olive oil and herbs. That’s the inspiration for today’s Potato Rosemary White Pizza recipe.
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!
- Each slice of this potato pizza has 8 grams of protein!
- this pizza makes a convenient vegetarian dinner for weeknights!
- It only takes 25 minutes to make it
- Pizza dough: Preferably whole wheat homemade pizza dough (but you can use store-bought and/or white pizza dough)
- Extra-virgin olive oil: Quality olive oil makes all the difference here
- Seasonings: Garlic, fresh rosemary, salt and pepper
- Cheese: Extra sharp cheddar cheese and Parmesan to make it extra cheesy. Fontina is also great on potato pizza as is any other good melting cheese like Havarti or Monterey Jack cheese.
- Potatoes: I liked to use gold potatoes, but any will do in a crunch
Step-by-Step Instructions to Make This Potato Pizza
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.
Step 2: Roll pizza dough
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.
Step 3: Slice potatoes
Shave the potato, preferably with a mandoline, as thinly as possible into rounds. You should be able to see light through them.
Step 4: Top with potatoes
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.
FAQs and Expert Tips
You can find plenty of simple pizza dough recipes on websites such as EatingWell or NYT Cooking. Opt for one that uses whole-wheat flour, like suggested in the ingredient list.
Absolutely. You can either buy/make a gluten-free pizza dough, or you could get the broccoli and cauliflower pizza crust from Trader Joe’s. Banza also makes a great gluten-free pizza crust.
If you’d like to make it ahead, you can begin by preparing the pizza dough. If you’re using homemade, simply make it the day before and chill until ready to use. Let it come to room temperature before rolling it out.
You can either stack the individual pizza squares/slices in an airtight container or wrap them in tin foil. Refrigerate for up to 4 days. Reheat in the oven or toaster oven until hot.

Yum! We have a very good pizza place nearby and Peter and I had a potato pizza there some years ago. Then I found a recipe (Williams Sonoma ?) and tried it. They use fresh Marjoram and it’s divine! I had never had it fresh and it’s quite an interesting flavor. We will certainly try this. Rosemary plants grow like crazy down here and we have a HUGE bush.
Love to you!
I once had potato on a pizza in France and I don’t know why I have never made it back at home as it was delicious. Now I have no excuses as I have found the perfect recipe ty
