Potato Crust Pizza | How to make Potato Pizza in Tawa | Gluten Free Recipe | Masterchefmom's Fusion Recipe

Potato Crust Pizza

Hi Supermoms,

Hope you are well. 

I have been travelling a bit recently to care for my mother, who is still recuperating from the stroke . Thanks to all who sent messages for her healing and recovery. Grateful for the love💖.

I have a few pending recipes to share . Will update as and when I find time. Thank you all for the patience and for always motivating and supporting my work . 

You all know my love for fusion recipes. Challenges in life bring out the best in us and I am no different. Recently I was asked to take up a challenge to create a fun and unique recipe from a  set of  five ingredients. I was excited by this challenge and chose 'potato' as the main ingredient. 

There are two reasons for choosing potato . Firstly, there are  more number of potato lovers   in the family than haters 😃 . Secondly, potato is a favourite vegetable at home . And pizza is always a winner with the young ones. 

The best part of this recipe is that the crust is made of boiled and mashed potatoes😇 . Mixed with Indian spices and flavours,  this Potato Crust Pizza will be a sure hit in your home too. 

I have not used any refined flour in this recipe. Also, I made the potato crust pizza on the tawa. I baked the pizza for only 5 minutes in the end so that the vegetables on the top  brown a little. If you do not have an oven, you can skip that step and serve directly from the tava. 

Delicious and  gluten free pizza is ready in minutes. Also, if you are vegan, you can skip the cheese or use any plant based cheese. 

Potato Crust Pizza:

Preparation time : 20 minutes
Cooking time : 30 minutes 
Serves : 6
1 cup = 250 ml cup 

Ingredients :

For the potato crust :

4 medium size potatoes
1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
1/2 teaspoon masala powder of your choice ( I used pav bhaji masala) 
1/4 teaspoon kashmiri chilli powder
handful of coriander leaves/cilantro ( finely chopped) ( optional)
2 teaspoons corn starch 
2 teaspoons beaten rice /flattened rice/poha ( adjust) 
salt to taste
oil to grease 

For the topping :

200 gm mozarella cheese ( grated)
1 tomato ( de-seeded)( sliced thinly)
1 capsicum/ colourful bell peppers ( de-seeded) ( sliced thinly )

Method :

1. Boil , peel and mash the potatoes in a wide vessel.
2. Add the spice powders , corn starch, flattened rice, cilantro and mix again .

Chef tip : We are adding the poha to absorb the extra water in the potatoes so that you get a crispy crust. You can add extra corn starch , if you do not have poha/beaten rice/ flattened rice  at home .
3. Take small portion of the pizza dough and flatten them into a circle on butter paper.

4. Heat a greased tava and transfer the shaped potato crust on it.
5. You can drizzle little oil on the sides of the crust.
6. Once the bottom of the potato base is crispy, carefully flip it.
Chef tip : If you are not comfortable shaping them into large circles, you can make mini potato pizza base.
7. Add the vegetables and cheese on top.
8. Let the potato crust pizza cook until the cheese on top starts to melt.
9. You can transfer this to a baking tray and bake in a pre heated oven for 8-10 minutes.

Note : This is an optional step.
10. You can sprinkle oregano flakes and chilli flakes ( optional) on top .

Your delicious Potato Crust Pizza is now ready !!
