Potato and Goat Cheese Pizza


Total Time:

20 minutes

Sometimes all you need in life are a few carbs. A few carbs and a heaping dose of Cypress Grove goat cheese! Ummm, yes please. After a long week, I was in need of a little comfort food, enter Potato and Goat Cheese Pizza, and this pizza was the perfect solution. Crispy pizza crust with a soft center, super thin slices of yukon gold potatoes, and shmears of an herbed goat cheese, yup, this pizza was a total winner.

Let’s be honest here. I have a long list of favorite foods – guacamole being right up at the top. But shortly below guacamole there is pizza. I like all sorts of pizza. You can top it with different cheeses, pile it high with veggies, add some salty prosciutto, perhaps a few squash blossoms, I mean the possibilities are endless. The one thing about making a vegetarian pizza is that it means there is more for me. My boyfriend, a total carnivore, doesn’t really give a vegetarian pizza much thought, he’ll pass it by and grab something with some more protein. Me on the other hand, well, I like the no meat thing once in a while. So when I make a big vegetarian pizza there are always a few leftovers in the fridge with my name on them. And I have no one to fight with on who gets the last piece.

But really, if my boyfriend knew what he was missing, he would be totally bummed. So go make this pizza for yourself, maybe for your girlfriends or a girls night in, or for your fam on a meatless night!

    I had potato pizza for the first time last year and didn’t love it because the cheese was too much…but with goat cheese I would think it’s perfect because the tang cuts some if the richness! Yum!

  13. Fried Goat Cheese Salad

    […] in my house. I always have it on hand and throw it into lots of different dishes like risotto and pizza and even guacamole! But never have I actually breaded some rounds of goat cheese, lightly fried […]

    Love this pizza! Word of advice, if you think you’ve put on too much cheese, you haven’t! Goat cheese is so delicious. Thank you so much Gaby for this recipe.
