This recipe is quickly becoming a favorite of all my friends!  The Potato Pizzette (now known as the potato pizza) from Five Points restaurant in NYC was always a MUST HAVE when my friends and I would be dining there.  This little pizza is made with thinly sliced Yukon Gold potatos, fontina cheese and truffle oil.  The flavors blend together beautifully!  I rarely serve this for the main course.  I think it’s best served as Five Points does as an appetizer.  When I’m having pizza night, I’ll serve this as the first pizza.  To make this pizza, i use the same pizza dough recipe that I use for the rest of my pizzas.

  • 3 Cups "Better for Bread" Flour
  • 1 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 Packet Yeast
  • 2 TBSP Olive Oil
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1.5 Cups Water
  • Fontina Cheese
  • Yukon Gold Potato (sliced as thin as possible)
  • Truffle Oil
  • Salt, Pepper & Garlic powder to taste
  • Alfredo Sauce (optional, but recommended)


Roll or toss your pizza crust. (Click to see my pizza dough recipe)  If you are using alfredo, put a thin coat on the crust now.  Arrange your thin slices of potato around the entire pizza.  Top with shredded fontina.  Drizzle a generous amount of truffle oil over the top of the pizza and top with fresh pepper, a bit of sea salt & some garlic powder.  Bake in a very hot oven (I cook pizzas at about 500-550) until crust looks done and cheese is nicely melted. (usually around 6 minutes)


If you do not use the alfredo, this pizza can be a bit on the dry side, so make sure you use plenty of oil. For more tips and trick on pizza dough, visit my home made pizza recipe page.
