Gluten free pizza with potato base

This is not strictly a pizza, but is a yummy alternative to fiddling around with gluten free pizza dough.  The quantities are approximate, as the amount of potato will vary depending on the size of your pizza dish, and the ham and cheese quantities are dependant on how much you pile on.  This serves four with a side, or two to three people as a light lunch.

Gluten free potato, ham and cheese pizza

Gluten free potato, ham and cheese pizza

Approximately 600g potatoes, sliced thinly

Approximately 1/4 cup gluten free pizza sauce

A big handful of shaved sandwich ham (I don’t use pizza ham as it is not usually gluten free, and you don’t know what is in it anyway)

100g grated mozzarella


Preheat a fan forced oven to 200 celcius, 220 if it is not fan forced.  Spray your pizza dish with cooking oil spray.

Arrange the potatoes in an overlapping pattern, starting at the outside of the dish, and working around the edges into the middle in a circular pattern.  Lightly spray the potatoes with cooking oil, put in oven for about 15 minutes to partly cook the potatoes.

Remove the dish and place on a heatproof trivet, spread the sauce over the potatoes, then arrange the shaved ham and cheese over the top.  Place back in oven for approximately 15 more minutes until the cheese is melted and slightly browning.

The potatoes will not stick together like a dough would, you will need to eat this with a plate and a fork, but it is yum.


We ate ours sitting on the verandah as it is spring and the birds are visiting us.  I think this chappy is an Eastern Rosella – what do you think?
