Author Notes: This no dough potato pizza is an easy, quick and beautiful one pot meal. Thinly sliced potato slivers serve as the base and spicy cilantro chutney, instead of the traditional tomato sauce, gives the pizza a twist. If you don't feel up to making the cilantro chutney, buy it from a Indian grocery store or replace with store-bought pesto. But if you do make this chutney at home, believe me, you'll be a very happy person. —Annada Rathi
cups roughly chopped cilantro
thai chile peppers
medium, peeled clove of garlic
cup unroasted, unsalted peanuts
teaspoons lime juice
medium Russet potato peeled
tablespoons cilantro chutney
medium roma tomato cut into thin, round slices
cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
slices of fresh mozzarella cheese
cups fresh arugula
teaspoons olive oil divided
- Blend the ingredients into a smooth paste. Add a tbsp of water, if needed, to facilitate blending.
- Store this chutney in a clean, dry glass bottle. It lasts for 2-3 weeks in the refrigerator.
- This chutney is super versatile. Spread it on a sandwich or wrap, throw a dash on crackers and cheese, marinate vegetables, tofu in it (thinned out with some water or orange juice) and grill, add a dollop to soup or stew, spread a layer on homemade pizza. Possibilities are endless!
- Wash russet potato clean. Slice into thin, round pieces with a mandolin or box grater.
