Potato Based Pizza


BASE                                                FOR THE TOPPING

6 large potatoes                                 2 Garlic cloves

6 spring onions                                   1 onion

2 eggs                                               
chopped tomatoes                                                                                    

Salt and pepper                                  fresh basil leaves

Fry light                                            
6oz/170g mozzarella cheese                                                      

Peel and dice potatoes, boil until tender, drain return to pan and mash. Set aside to cool a little. Meanwhile finely chop the spring onions. Place the mash, spring onions and one egg into a bowl and season well. Using your fingers, mix well and shape into a ball. Cover the bowl and chill overnight.

Prepare the topping: Crush garlic, finely chop onion, remove skins from toms (if using fresh) and chop basil leaves. Place in a pan with sweetener and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes, stirring often until thickened. Season well and remove from heat.

Preheat oven 200C/400F or gas mark 6. Line a baking sheet with baking parchment. Place the potato mixture in the centre and, using your hands, pat into 10in pizza base. Beat the remaining egg and brush over the base, spray with fry light and bake for 10-15 mins or until lightly browned.

Spread topping over base. Slice mozzarella and arrange on top. Return to oven for further 6-8 minutes. Remove from oven and scatter basil over the top.
