Greek Pizza

Recently I made this the night before an athletic event...for that extra boost of carbs.

I cut potatoes into cubes and put them in a pan with some olive oil (a couple tablespoons) and some Penzeys Greek seasoning. I roasted them at 450 degrees for an hour or so (OK, I took the dog for a walk while they were in the oven) and stirred them occasionally. It took about an hour to get nicely browned.

I made pizza crust (but purchased crust could be used) using the recipe out of the book mentioned in the post from 8/1.

I topped the crust with the potatoes, roasted red peppers, feta cheese, and some sun dried tomatoes. The jar of tomatoes I used was a huge one from the warehouse club...they are delicious.

The idea for potato pizza came from my friend, Nora. Usually I par boil the potatoes and then saute chopped onions and the cubed potatoes. I'll often throw in some fresh herbs too or some bell peppers. Really, just about anything that goes together and sounds good. The mixture could be topped with bleu cheese, cooked bacon, Canadian bacon, cheddar, chipotle peppers etc.

Thanks to Nora for a good idea!
