The other day, a friend and I were watching Tyler's Ultimate: Pizza on Food Network. He made two amazing looking pies, and one of them had thinly sliced potatoes on top. I was shocked when my friend, a total foodie, said, "I've never had pizza with potatoes on it." Thus, it's time for her — and you! — to enjoy the delectable world of potato pizza. Usually pizzas that are topped with potatoes are not the tomato sauce kind, but more like the flatbread seen here. Combined with herbs, leeks, and Gruyère, the potatoes work surprisingly well on pizza dough. It's a simple yet satisfying meal, so get the recipe now.
