It is, of course, much easier to buy a pizza base, however making it yourself does not really involve a lot of work, and you know there are no chemicals in it!
I have used a White Castello as one of the cheeses, and on the home made base I have spread cream cheese for a different slant on the usual tomato paste.
I have also made it an oblong shape instead of round and it does not matter that it is uneven - this adds to the rustic look of this very tasty pizza.
: 20 minutes plus proofing
: 25 minutes
: 2 servings, or 6 pieces
For the Pizza dough
1 cup sifted flour
½ tsp caster sugar
¼ tsp salt
1 tsp yeast
1/3 cup lukewarm water
1 tbsp oil
For the topping
spreadable cream cheese
1 medium potato, unpeeled
1 red onion, sliced
or a blue cheese, crumbled
Olive oil to spray
For the dough
Mix the flour, sugar, salt and yeast.
Make a well in the middle and stir in the combined water and oil. Stir until it forms a soft dough.
Turn this onto a floured surface and knead it for about 3 minutes.
Put it in a lightly greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and let stand in a warm place for about 30 minutes or until the dough has doubled in size.
This was difficult as it was a freezing day, so I wrapped it in a blanket and it took about 1 hour
For the topping
Roll out the pizza dough on a floured surface (I did this on a sheet of baking paper) to form an oblong base - about 20 x 30 cm.
Microwave the whole potato for about 1 - 2 minutes.
Fry half the red onion slices for about 10 minutes, add a touch of vinegar, and then add the very thinly sliced potatoes for about 5 minutes.
This is optional as you could also put these on raw
Spread the cream cheese as evenly as possible onto this base.
Make sure the cheese is not cold or it is difficult to spread
Add the potatoes, onions, any left over raw onion, and the crumbled white cheese.
Spray with a bit of oil.
Bake at around 180° fan forced for about 15 minutes.
Cut and serve.

Loved this. Being lazy, with low budget, I used smaller pita breads, two per person. Crisp underneath, lovely topping. Friend and I fell upon them with lust! Simplicity itself, but so tasty and easy.
Potatoes, browned a bit first particularly are LOVELY on pizza and this one was delicious!
I have always been skeptical of potatoes on pizza, Finy, but this looks pretty good.
