Overview

This versatile dish can be served for breakfast, lunch or dinner -- kids love it
Frozen hash brown potatoes may be used, but hash browns from scratch (with skins) make a more cohesive "crust."

Step 1

Wash potatoes then cut in half, leave skin on. Cook covered in microwave oven for 5-6 minutes on high (rotate once if necessary). Potatoes should be only partially cooked; they should still be hard and crunchy when stuck with a fork. Grate potatoes.

Step 2

Pre-heat olive oil in large non-stick frying pan on medium-high heat. Place potatoes in an even flat layer in the pan to form the "pizza crust." Cook uncovered for approximately 12-15 minutes. It's done when golden brown on the bottom and the crust forms a cohesive piece when moved with a spatula.

Step 3

Use a spatula to slide the crust onto a plate. Place another plate onto and flip over. If the potato layer breaks don't worry, the layer of cheese and other toppings will hide the break. Cook uncovered for 8-10 minutes.

Step 4

Place cheese, olives, meat and whatever else you want on top of the potato pizza. Reduce heat to medium and cook covered until cheese is melted and bottom of potatoes is golden brown. Salt and pepper to taste. Place on a pizza pan and slice into pieces with a knife or rotating pizza cutter.
