For those of you who think that fasting on Ekadashi means total hunger and torture, think again!
This is my first potato pizza post, but I can assure you that there is a gourmet Ekadashi pizza waiting for you , next Ekadashi.
Simple Potato Pizza: (4-6 small pizzas)
1/3 cup potato flour
1 tsp green chilli*
2 cups tomato puree
1 tsp cumin seeds
grated Mozzarella cheese
grated Gouda cheese*
1 handful of cherry tomatoes
Steam and mash the potatoes. While they’re steaming away, add the cumin and a green chilli to 1 tbsp of hot olive oil in a pan.
Once the spices are sizzling away, add the tomato puree. Add salt, pepper and sugar to taste.
While the tomato sauce, and the potatoes are on the stove ( it should take about 10-12 minutes), prepare the rest of the ingredients for the pizza.
Cut the cherry tomatoes into halves, grate the cheese and crumble the feta. Time saving!
Once the potatoes are done, mash in a bowl. Add a tablespoon of olive oil, salt and pepper to taste, and just maybe a touch of green chili. Dont forget to fold in the potato flour. If it is almost impossible to find potato flour, don’t worry, if you leave it out, it’s no big deal. I like to add it for extra crispyness in the base. However, it is not vital!
I felt like adding a bit of Parmesan as well. Mix well. Shape the mashed potato mixture into small sized pizza bases.
Arrange on your baking tray and do a final drizzle of olive oil if you wish. Pop them under the grill for 5-7 minutes, to get crispy(ish), manageable potato bases.
Once they’re crispy and toasty, spread the tomato sauce over each base. Top with your favourite cheese, cherry tomatos and dry Oregano and grill for a few minutes until the cheese is all gooey and melted!
You can always add avo, feta, peppers etc. Have a look in the fridge.
Serve with a handful of Rocket! Mmmmmm
