Servings 2 people


  • Outdoor Pizza Oven, Pizza Steel, or Stone (if using a home oven)
  • 1 frying pan
  • 1 Pizza Peel
  • 1 Sauce ladle
  • 1 wooden chopping board or peel for prep and serving


  • 1 pizza dough ball
  • 1 ladle of pizza sauce
  • Fresh mozzarella cheese
  • Low moisture mozzarella cheese
  • Grana Padano cheese
  • 1 sliced potato
  • 1 beaten egg
  • chilli flakes (optional)
  • Extra virgin olive oil


  • Prepare Dough: Follow any of our dough recipes. You will need to prepare the dough at least 24 hours ahead of time.
  • Prepare Sauce: We recommend our standard pizza sauce which is versatile, simple to make and is perfect for Neapolitan style pizzas. Spice up this sauce however you like, remember the best part about making pizza is the creative process!
  • Prepare Potatoes: Thinly slice a potato and fry it lightly in oil (an air fryer could also be used) until it is slightly golden on each side.
  • Prepare Egg: Beat egg, set aside.
  • Preheat Oven:
    If using an outdoor pizza like an Ooni pizza oven, aim for a temperature of 450-500°C at the center of your pizza stone. Use an infrared thermometer to ensure accuracy. It should take around 25-30 minutes to reach temperature.
    For a home oven, using a pizza steel or stone, place the stone or steel inside the oven and preheat to the highest temperature for at least 30 minutes.
  • Prepare Base: On a lightly floured surface, stretch out the dough by hand according to the steps outlined in our dough recipe. Once you're happy with the shape of the base, lightly dust your pizza peel and transfer the dough onto the peel.
  • Assemble Pizza: Start by spreading a ladle of sauce in a circular motion starting at the center of the dough. Next, sprinkle an even amount of Grana Padano, followed by a combination of fresh and low moisture mozzarella over the sauce. Add the beaten egg and arrange the potato slices on top. Finally, sprinkle some chili flakes (optional) and drizzle some extra virgin olive oil over the toppings to finish.
  • Bake Your Pizza:
    If you're using an outdoor pizza oven, launch the pizza into the oven and bake for 60-90 seconds. Keep an eye on the pie and rotate every 10-15 seconds to ensure even cooking and to avoid burning.
    For a home oven with a pizza steel or stone, the bake time should be around 7-10 minutes.
  • Serving: Once done, remove the pizza from the oven and place it on a serving board. Now it's time to enjoy your Creamy Potato Pizza Pie!
