Pizza Bianca (or Potato Pizza)

Pizza Bianca (or Potato Pizza)

I was telling you about my new research on pizza toppings - here is another successful combination, I'd even say a surprisingly tasty one. My husband was reluctant at the idea of a pizza with potatoes (even though he is usually open to testing new recipes :) However, after he took the first bite, he said "Wow, this is really delicious, you know!"

What I like about it is that everything is simple, without requiring a lot of preparation and expensive ingredients. Only 2 observations here - the potaoes must be white, the floury type, and you need rosemary (dried or fresh). The whole charm of this recipe is given by the rosemary flavoured melted mozzarella. To be honest, I couldn't stand this combination until now, but here it brings a special touch to the taste in a perfect blend with all the other ingredients.

It's ready when golden brown and when a toothpick is inserted easily and quickly.
