We eat a lot of homemade pizza. Almost every Sunday afternoon, Joe uses our stand mixer to make a batch of pizza dough. He pre-bakes it, and then lets it sit for most of the afternoon, until we’re ready to top and eat it. I love having homemade pizza on Sundays. It’s a comfort food tradition. And you know I’ve been loving the comfort food for the last couple of months. We ran out of yeast a couple weeks ago, but Joe didn’t want to forgo our pizza tradition. He improvised. We did have ten pounds of potatoes, so Joe used the mandoline to slice them very thin and layered them to make a pizza crust. The pizza was delicious. It almost tasted like a combination of home fries and pizza. So tasty! Joe’s potato crust was a lot lighter and less dense than a normal pizza crust, so one or two pieces weren’t nearly as filling as they would normally be. The finished pizza didn’t go very far. That’s okay. We liked it so much that we’ve made it several times since, and not just on Sundays.
