Recipe

  1. Sift the flour and baking powder into a large bowl and add the potato and herbs, stirring to combine. Add the milk to the dry mix to form a soft dough. Turn onto a lightly-floured surface and knead lightly to form into a smooth ball of dough.

  2. Pre-heat the oven to 225°C/Gas Mark 7. Place the dough onto a greased baking sheet, pressing the mix evenly to create a round base, a bit thicker than a £1 coin. Put the base into the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Remove the pizza base and lower the temperature of the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6

  3. Spread the tomato puree over the base, and top with the sliced leeks, boiled potatoes and grated cheese.

  4. Bake the pizza in the oven for a further 8-10 minutes, until the cheese has melted and the base is crisp.
