Easy Potato Crust Pizza w/ Mozzarella

If you are looking for a flour and gluten-free alternative to the classic pizza crust, I have a delicious idea for you: potato crust pizza.

It’s made with mashed potatoes and cheese, is super easy to make, and adds extra flavor and texture to the regular pizza crust. I’ve used a simple tomato sauce and mozzarella topping for this recipe, but feel free to change it and add your favorite toppings. Either way, I promise it will be a brilliant pizza.

For the pizza crust:

  • 300 g boiled and mashed potatoes or you can use any leftover mash from a previous meal
  • 150 g grated or crumbled cheese you can use any firm cheese (hard or semi-hard cheese like cheddar, Monterey Jack, etc.)
  • 1 large egg

For the topping:

  • 150 ml tomato sauce I used a store-bought one with added basil
  • 200 g diced or grated mozzarella cheese
  • fresh basil
  • a few cherry tomatoes cut in half
  • any other toppings you desire


  • Mix the mashed potatoes with the egg and grated cheese until smooth.

  • Stretch the “dough” in a baking pan lined with parchment paper. The mass should be about 1cm ( ~1/3 inch) thick.

  • Bake for 25 minutes at 220 ºC/ 430°F or until it becomes firm with a golden-brown crust. It should look like the one in the pictures below.

  • After baking remove the crust from the oven and spread the tomato sauce on top, add mozzarella, tomatoes and basil. You can now add any other toppings you like.

  • Bake for another 10-15 minutes at 220 ºC/ 430°F or until the cheese has melted.

  • Allow it to cool slightly for 5-10 minutes before slicing as the mass is still soft and slightly crumbly when hot.

  • Enjoy!

I simply love cooking and talking about food and recipes so much so that I dropped my successful corporate advertising career five years ago to become a full-time food blogger. And I couldn’t be happier.

What excites me? Sharing flavors that transport me back to my childhood, using the tricks I learned from my mom for preparing treats, and experimenting with new ingredients while exploring the forgotten corners of local (and beyond) gastronomy.
