Why we love it:

We could never tire of pizza but it’s fun to switch it up! Thinly sliced potatoes, smoked mozzarella, and bitter broccoli rabe make a perfect wintery combo that seems fancy but isn’t any more challenging to make than pepperoni.


  • 1 pound Prepared Pizza Dough
  • 3 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 12 pound Yukon Gold Potatoes
  • 12 pound Broccoli Rabe
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1 Red Onion
  • 1 cup Smoked Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1 cup Provolone Cheese
  • 1 15-ounce can Crushed Tomatoes (or pizza sauce, or marinara)
  • 12 teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 12 teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes

Cooking Instructions

  • 1. DOUGH

    Let the dough warm up and rise for about 1 hour or a little more at room temperature, on a baking sheet coated in the olive oil.

  • 3. POTATO

    Wash the potato and poke with a fork a few times. Microwave on high for 5 minutes. Slice potato into thin rounds, about ⅛” thick or thinner.


    Chop the broccoli rabe and place on a baking sheet with a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt. Put in the oven for 2 - 4 minutes and let it wilt down just a bit. Remove.

  • 5. PREP

    Slice the red onion into thin rings or wedges. Grate cheese as necessary.

  • 6. FORM

    Use a bit of flour if needed and use your preferred method (see Culinary Skills section) for shaping the dough. Place on the oiled baking sheet.

    Spread with tomato sauce, season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Add red pepper flakes if using.

    Layer the potato slices over top without overlapping too much. Sprinkle on about ⅓ of the cheese. Add the onions, broccoli, and top with remaining cheese.

    Place in the oven, near the bottom, and bake for 20 minutes. Rotate if needed and near the end of cooking, you can move it up to the top of the oven if the bottom is getting too brown or the cheese isn’t browned enough.

  • 7. SERVING

    Let cook a few minutes, transfer to a cutting board, and slice into wedges or squares.

    find a GF crust that’s either dough or preformed
    pecorino and other sheep’s cheese or goat's cheese is great on pizza. Some folks are ok with buffalo mozzarella too!
    any type you like or have, diced, fire roasted, etc.
    use any green you like
    letting it warm up is the more time consuming part here. You could get a pre formed crust, or make bagel pizzas, english muffins, or french bread pizzas all of which are excellent, faster, and fun

Kid Friendly Version

How to Tweak This Recipe for Kids:

  • Leave half the pizza without greens, or potato, or onion. Adjust to meet their needs

For Toddlers

  • Deconstruct. Add fruit, yogurt or avocado to the plate to make it a complete meal

For Choosy Eaters

  • We usually leave half the pizza with very light sauce and cheese. You could also split the dough before it rises and make 2 smaller pizzas with different toppings. Or just double the recipe for 2 full pizzas. Leftovers are great!
